Packing for Disney World

Wanna know what goes into a week long Disney trip for a family of four people?
Here are the packing lists as they stand now. Yup, it's a lot of crap. Yup, we need it all.
30+ trips under my belt most with the kids. Experience has taught me to pack it all and hope you don't need most of it.
We don't rent a car and Disney charges triple for forgotten items. It's cheaper to grab it at the dollar store and have it in case...
