When do you start packing for your Disney trip?

An interesting question was posted by Tammy / Wisconsinmousermom which I'm turning into a poll and moving here, with her permission:



Ok I'm 17 days away can I get out my suitcases? :laugh:

When do you start packing?  Do you use ziplock bags to compress everything?  Do you take mini sized shampoos and such or do you take the normal size?  Do you take 2 swim suits?  Do you load and pack your car the night before you leave or do you rush around in the morning ramming everything in at the last minute?  What have you forgotten to pack?  What did you pack that you never even took out of your suitcase?
:)

So, once again, here are your choices:
  • The night before
  • A couple of days before
  • A week before
  • 2 weeks before
  • 3-4 weeks before
  • I never unpacked from my last trip!


Tell us what you think! Please reply here (and answer the questions Tammy brought up) after voting in the poll above.

I  usually  start  about  a week  before!
I dont have that many  clothes to pack earlier
than  that....  :rock:

I also have last minutes things to put in the morning of  so I do not load the car the day  before!
I cant remember that I have forgotten  anything thus  far!

:D

I usually pack 1 week before! I tell my DDs not to wear anything they want to pack about 1 week before. That way I know it is clean, and in their suitcase, and we're not trying to wash it the night before!! I also have everything packed and ready to go the night before our flight!

I'll usually pack at least one week before.  It depends on when we are going.  Usually when we go, it's still too cold for shorts so I can pack all of our cloths well before the trip.

I don't use ziplocks to pack clothes, but I use them to put in the shampoo/soap, laundry detergent.....anything that could cause a mess if broken.

I'm hopeless. I always pack the day/night before. I usually make lists of what to pack about 2 weeks before we go.
:blush:

We usually get the suitcases out 4-6 weeks out :Oo: . We also get travel size bottles for shampoo and travel size toothpaste. We bought a new car( 2002 sunfire ), so we didn't rent a car this trip, and found out how small the trunk is with 5 people in the car :laugh: . We had to limit what we were going to wear.
 So our planning as far as packing is concerned, starts at least a month out.

 Now as far as reservations......... :D

We've got another 117 days to go and the Mrs. and I are already talking about what to take.  In fact, we just bought new luggage.

But we normally start packing about a week before, just a little bit at a time.
