I have relied on J Crew and Loft to carry me thru on my vacation. Of course, the long sleeves will be for air conditioned times and cooler nights (if we have any)--Savannah, Amelia Island and Vilano Beach are some of our stops on the way. We can't wait.
Here is my go to list when packing for a Summer vacation:
Cardigans or long sleeve tops for cool night or air conditioning
4 pairs of sandals
3 bathing suits with sunscreen/towels
Accessories like necklaces, scarves, earrings etc.
Laptop or iPad
I recommend the My Disney experience app along with the Hilton or Marriott apps on your cell phones-this saves time with booking a last minute hotel or checking wait times at Disney for the rides. We already have our magi bands and have booked our fast passes and restaurant reservations in advance. This has saved us time with planning ahead. We also have checked in to our hotel so when we arrive they direct us to our room and we are off. Wilderness Lodge here we come!!! We are fortunate to have a friend who works for Disney and she has hooked us up with a fantastic vacation at a big discount. Gotta love that--
My final tip is this. I purchased a small plastic bin that will hold some essentials and non essentials you may need while traveling with kids. Inside I have a bottle of liquid advil, a thermometer, clorox wipes, small lysol, ammonium ad, band aids, chewable advil, hand sanitizer, small bath soap, makeup removers, lint roller, benadryl tablets, cortizone creme ( for bites) and anything else I think I may need. I don't want to be looking for a drug store on my vacation nor do I want to pay ridiculous prices for buying stuff at the hotel. Each and every time we have used many of these items and I am so glad I had them along. This bin fits nicely inside my "thirty one" beach bag. I have several packages of clorox wipes so I can sanitize the hotel TV remote, faucets, toilet and door knobs! I also purchased GAIN laundry detergents tabs in case I need to do laundry. A small bag with 10 tablets is about $4.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer. See you when we return.
