Going to Disneyland: What are you packing in your bag?

I was reading one of the posts and it just came into my mind. There are always such little things that you should think of beforehand, but it doesn't often pop out untill you badly need it.

So a question to those who have great Disneyland Paris experience - especially with toddlers and children: What are you packing with you going by airbus and going by train, warm or cold season?

Having 5 year old child and going in warm season I thought of:

- Travel kettle (or 30Eur deposit at front desk)

- hairdryer (or 30Eur deposit at front desk)

- couple tea/coffe bags

- some sugar singles

- some milk singles (bottle is not allowed in hand luggage)

- squash for dilluting in few 100ml bottles

- microwave popcorn bags

- sandwich bags

- flask (regretfully not allowed in hand luggage)

- sport bottles for filling with drinking water

- birthday cake candles

- baloons (for blowing them on day X )

- painkillers for children and grownups

- adapter for sockets

- charger for mobile phones (heh! usually pops up in memory in the last-last minute :) )

- birthday badge

- birthday card

- Disney themed dress/outfit for a child

What about (or it could be requested at the front desk??) big bath towel, small pillow (you probably now start thinking I'm paranoidal :))) ,extra fleece blanket ... ?

What is your opinion? What is missing? What won't be needed?

Thank you

Earplugs (junior doesn't like firework's loud sounds, even hoover is "too loud!")

Buggy itself (even for 5-6 y.o., saves child's feet, parents' nerves and 9Eur/day)

We have had some other useful threads like this about packing and what to take, so worth reading those as well -

ILMB suggests a French phrase book - although most Cast Members in resort do speak English and some other languages, it is always useful to be able to say at least a few words in French, and they do appreciate your making the effort. Could also be useful in restaurants if you want to ask for something and the waiter does not understand, as some CMs only speak a little English or a basic knowledge of other languages.

I agree, I was so proud of myself for ordering two sugar crepes and one Nutella in French that I hadn't anticipated her replying in French lol!

we took the childrens pet pillows & they were ace, especially for travelling.

We also bought alot of the disney merchandise from the disney store online before we went & saved a fair bit. Worth keeping an eye out for a sale as things like minnie ears & autograph books can really add up x
