    If you have a laptop, bring a DVD to watch, or play a computer game. I can play Spider Solitaire for hours!

    Get a DS (or borrow one)and buy or borrow) the Crosswords game. It is entertaining and can last a plane ride!

    Where ya goin', TP? Anyplace fun? :)

    I'll usually take a magazine and a good book. When I leave for spring break, I'll probably take my laptop so I can surf (although it's so dang heavy, I hate to lug it).

    Take some headphones with you and plug in to watch the movie. You can buy them at the dollar store.

    A good book to keep you from thinking about being on the plane! the best thing I found was watching my favorite TV show on the laptop - Everybody Loves Raymond. 4 episodes and you are almost there!

    Get a Disney Book, and plan out what you want to see in what park, what you'll fastpass, and where you'll be for the parades.

    You don't have to stick to it, but it will pass the time and get you familiarized with what you'll be seeing.

    Have a GREAT trip!!

    I second the vote for a Nintendo DS. If you have one or can borrow one, I think that would keep me occupied for awhile.

    I agree with those who have suggested the DS. My last plane ride it kept me occupied for hours.

    If I travelled that regularly, I'd get as small a laptop as possible that still played DVDs because the last thing I want to do is lug around a larger laptop in addition to my luggage.

    I'd bring lots of mags, but at least when I'm done w/ them, I can throw them out!

    I never get on a plane without my iPod...and I make sure to download a bunch of new songs before...

    Have fun on your trip!

    I second the Ipod idea.

    Also, last year when I went to London my DS was indispensable. I loved it, played Brainage, and my how to learn spanish games.
