This list is really helpful. I'd never thought about putting stuff in ziplog bags to organize my backpack! That's an awesome idea! I'm definitely gonna do that in my carry-on (for the flight) and when going to the themeparks! Thanks!
I don't go anywhere without my PDA and will be taking that with me to Disney. AS well, as post it notes, in case I need to make a note of something that I would otherwise forget...which happens more often than I would like! AND OF COURSE, My PassPorter! This book is genious!

(I posted this in the Special Needs' board same topic, as well.)
I always have my little tube (similar to the Tide Stain Remover tube) of After Bite on me. It is the BEST stuff for bug bites and stings! It calms the itching right down and it prevents the bite from swelling, which is great for me 'cause ant bites continue to swell on me 'til I put something on them, which used to not be for hours 'til I found After Bite! Not to mention the itching from bug bites, which After Bite takes care of.
(Note: I like the original liquid-in-a-plastic-tube kind better than the gel-in-a-squeeze-tube kind, as it works better for me.)
I will never go anywhere without a BooBoo Bunny again! I have a 4 year old boy who's still growing into his feet - so to speak. Just yesterday, we had to use a BooBoo Bunny on his fingers when he burned his hand on his grammy's woodstove. I keep a Bunny in DS's daypack for just such an emergency.
You can find ice at nearly any counter service resaurant or at first aid. I like to run BooBoo Bunny under a bit of water to help cool him down faster once the ice cube/s are inside. Even the smaller ice cubes used in restaurants will work if you unroll Bunny's belly a bit to tuck the ice cubes inside.
I keep Bunny in a small ziploc bag with a bottle of Tylenol Meltaways (for bumps, burns, and bruises), a small tube of Neosporin + Pain Relief Cream (for scrapes, cuts, and burns), and a few bandaids to help avoid scrapes and such from getting dirty/infected.
This is a really basic first aid kit and for anything else, we can always go to first aid at the park. (The way I see it, if I need moleskin, I should go back to the hotel room and get off my feet for a while anyway - so no need to carry moleskin! Besides, wearing Birks - I've never had a blister! )
Thanks so much for the AWESOME checklists! We are traveling in Sept/October. I have just started a new business enterprise - so I am somewhat busy, lol - and having a list allows me stop worrying about what I may forget and think about how much fun we're going to have!!
We just ran out of one of our first aid kit staples today and it occured to me that I never mentioned it here. A small can of Dermoplast spray. It's hospital-strength medicated antiseptic spray. It relieves pain and cools as well as speeding recovery. It is an absolute must with a little boy full of daring-do.
I just got back from WDW and I have to say what a HUGE help those ziplock bags were!!! I'm NEVER gonna go on any vacation without them ever again. I had them in 3 different sizes. It greatly helped to organize the backpack I brought into the parks plus it kept things dry on the water rides. I used the bags to pack food items, esp. bags of chips etc. that were already open, packed clothing so the items wouldn't fly around in the backpack, and I used one bag to put all the receipts in so they wouldn't get lost. I used really small bags to pack medicine, some bandaid etc.
Just wanted to give you all a thumbs-up on the ziplock bags
One other item that may be useful is an anti-itch spray or stick that can be applied on mosquito bites. Aveeno makes a spray and Benadryl has a roll-on stick that is very small and fits easily into a bag. I love the stick for convenience!
