My plan is to wear the plastic belt and not remove it. They’re not going to see it. And if I don’t set off the metal detectors I’m not going to get a pat-down. So I should be OK.
Yes, this is an essential for me, too. I have three in the house right now. I can only find one of them
I’ve been practising packing my day bag (I’m 81 days out so time is getting short): glasses case, paperback book, phone with battery pack, small pouch of medical supplies, flannel (aka washcloth), disposable poncho, AirPods (Apple wireless headphones), mini-wallet, . . .
I’m also filling my “Disney drawer” with stuff to pack in my main bags: small binoculars, noise-cancelling headphones, cables and leads, US USB plug, Magic Band from last year, VIP lanyard, . . .
As well as my plastic belt, I’ve ordered a new watch strap for my Apple Watch — the Nike Sport strap with holes: much better for hot, humid weather.
My packing cubes are all ready to get filled up. Will be using the new suitcase I bought last year. Carry-on only for me.
Oh, I need to see if my suit still fits as I’m taking that with me to wear at V&A. I already own a suit carrier. (And because I’m travelling Virgin Upper Class I can have two items of cabin baggage. Plus my day bag.)
Using my great Tilley hat I bought last year. My new waterproof shoes are currently being broken in.
Now . . . what have I forgotten?
