I've read that people add small appliances, like waffle makers, Kuerigs, George Forman Grill, flat irons and curling irons and even a better blender for drinks. And of course extra supplies for making coffee and drinks and waffles. One person mentioned that they didn't like the non Disney kitchen towels, so bought some Mickey kitchen towels, a Mickey spatula, a Mickey timer, and Mickey measuring cups and placed them all in their Owner's Locker. Now that's a true Disney fan.

I keep a shaving kit bag (so I don't have to worry about airport security), some 32oz or larger cups (juice cups too small), spare trading pins and lanyard, small dry erase board to write down daily notes and reminders, paper plates, coffee filters, and lots of little items. It really comes in handy to not have to fly down with all the extra stuff. Potentially, if I get to the point where I'd want a second locker, I would probably add a few days worth of clothes to it so I could make a weekend trip with only a carry on bag.

We normally stay in studios, so for us lots of kitchen stuff in ours. Real plates, silverware and a couple favorite Disney coffee mugs. Coffee filters, kitchen towels (as I wanted more than one). Full size bath rom products, etc.
But for us its not that packing got so much easier, but unpacking.
John shakes his head just about everytime I say that, but I still hold true to that thought.
When I am packing to go on vacation I am excited. I have my list and I am cheking stuff off.
I notice the most return on my investment when I return home and don't have all that little stuff (you know the stuff you feel obligated to have just in case) to unpack and put away (bandaids, ointments, etc).
At the point of unpacking, the only thing I have to "look forward to" is returning to work.
So yes, we love our OL. It has made vacations so much nicer as we have the items in there that make our trip feel more like we are home.
But for me, it is not having to unpack the stuff when I get back home.
And it is always like Christmas when we open Number Ten up and see what we left in him.
The service is beyond anything we have ever experienced. John and his crew are the best.
We have 2 toddlers too (2.5 y/o DD, 14 mo old DS). We have swim diapers for DS, a Brita (Orlando water is terrible), all that little crud I don't want to pack again (first aid kit, extra sunscreen, no ponchos yet!, toiletries for all and extras for guests (never have to pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, ponytail holders (aka cabinet locks), hairspray, etc), laundry pods, dryer sheets. Even a pod of shelf-stable soy milk and some splenda. I'll probably add a mini-Keurig, a sippy for DS, 2 real coffee mugs, and a few water bottles to it next trip. Means we only pack minimum amount of clothing, which makes me happier! Have no desire to go to Wally World or Target while on vaca.
