Remember you are limited to two checked bags (but keep it to one if at ALL possible because of Disney tags), one carry-on bag, and one personal item (includes purses). It is highly recommended you limit yourself to one checked bag and one backpack/personal bag.
Please use the envelope provided for receipts. It might be helpful to snap a picture of each receipt just in case something happens.
Please use cash provided and get a receipt for all transactions. If it’s easier to put it on your credit card and reimburse yourselves from the cash (exact change only) that should be fine, but a receipt is still needed.
You have my EZ-Pass. It should automatically detect the trailer and charge accordingly. I can get a receipt for myself by downloading the online statement.
If you go through a toll that does not accept EZ-Pass, please use the cash provided and get a receipt.
If an emergency or flat tire arises, you can use the cash, call Enterprise for roadside assistance, call AAA if any of you have it, or call me for advice. Just don’t forget the receipts!!! If someone needs to use a credit card and the cash doesn’t cover it, we can get you reimbursed ASAP.
CALL ME (also the authorities)
