Looking forward to reading more about your trip! After I experienced horrible ear pain after my first flight, I read about Earplanes. I used them the second time I went to WDW and it definitely made a difference! The first trip, it felt like my ear drums were going to rupture and I couldn't hear for a few days afterwards. I still had some discomfort with the Earplanes but it quickly went away and I could hear perfectly. Love them!
