WDW Must Have Items: Airplane Carryon

After having two airplane travel experiences that were less than pleasant, I have come up with a list of MUST HAVE items for the plane.  On one trip we were delayed a day getting home and we didn't have the items needed to stay the night in a hotel.  On another trip, the weather was too snowy for us to fly, so we ended up taking a bus from Alabama to New York.  Between those experiences, this is the list of items I'll always have with me on a flight.
  • My personal items: ID, cash, credit cards, iPhone, glasses, sunglasses, passport (if needed), camera, laptop and snacks
  • 1 complete change of clothes for everyone in your party including underwear and socks
  • 1 lightweight jacket/ sweater for each person, no matter what the weather is outside
  • travel toothbrush and toothpaste for each person
  • travel deodorant for those who need it
  • wash cloths and a hand towel- to wash and dry your face
  • small travel size soap- to wash your face
  • small pillow and light weight blanket for each person
  • ear plugs for those who can wear them
  • travel lotion
  • medicines- over the counter and prescriptions 
  • hair ties
  • hair brush or comb
  • hand sanitizer
  • magazines or books
  • any expensive items I don't want in my checked luggage.
If you have children traveling with you, your list will be longer.  It could include games, toys, books, diapers, snacks, formula, wipes, bibs, pacifiers, and additional extra clothes.

What are your must have items in your carryon bag when you travel?
