    We're taking our 18-month old daughter to Walt Disney World. What do you suggest we pack and bring along for a day at a theme park?

    First of all, don't do what I did.  We didn't bring diapers from home during our most recent trip, intending to purchase them at our grocery stop en route from the airport to our resort hotel.  Unfortunately for us we forget the diapers (excitement will do that to you I guess) and were left in quite a pinch because the hotel didn't sell diapers large enough to cover my two-year-old son's chubby little tush.  So believe me when I tell you diapers should be numero uno on your list!

    You'll also want to be sure that you have plenty of the following:
    -baby wipes -any specialty food items she needs -a sippy cup -sunscreen -disposable bibs -snack items (goldfish crackers or Cheerios) -bandages (just in case) -a change of clothes (again, just in
    case).

    Basically, anything you pack into your diaper bag for a daytrip would also be advisable for a day at the theme parks.  I also like to bring along small toys from the Dollar Store that go a long way to keep babies and toddlers entertained in line for attractions or while you wait in restaurants.  Bubbles, Silly Putty, Matchbox cars, and coloring books are all good suggestions.  Recently I've found that the dollar section in the front of most Target stores has some goodies that work well for this purpose too.  You may also consider earplugs if your daughter doesn't tolerate loud noises (like from fireworks) and you think she'd wear them.

    I think that about covers it.  If you get there and find that you forgot something, be sure to check the baby care centers.  They sell all sorts of items that come in handy for forgetful parents like me (large diapers exluded!).    :)
