Yesterday at work, I received this really super nice "blanket bag". It's a full-sized blanket that is warm soft fleece on one side and water-proof vinyl on the other. And the whole thing folds up to make a bag, with two side pockets, and an over-the-shoulder strap.
So, I got to thinking that this is perfect to carry as a tote at Disneyland, since it can also double as a mat for fireworks viewing.
So, how do you "stake your spot"? Do you just spread stuff out (plastic bags, blankets, etc.), spread people out (like blocking with legs, etc.), or another "method"?
