I usually take out the suitcase a few months before to put in items I don't want to forget.  That way if I need to wear any of the clothes  when rewashed they go right back in.  I have never forgotten anything but when I was on my honeymoon in 2000 I overpacked and never wore one pair of long pants or sweater that I had brought, my 3 suitcases could have been reduced to one.  Disneyn :minnie:

I voted for "I never unpacked from my last trip!".  What I meant by that is that I have a big Mickey tote bag that stays packed with things we only use at WDW such as small Disney back packs, fanny packs, RADP pins, disposable ponchos, etc.  I start putting things aside months before our trip.  I have a travel box that I toss in things I know we won't use before the trip or things I have bought specifically for the trip.....film, batteries for the camera, travel sized toiletries, new socks, moleskin, etc.  I have several packing lists in my computer for different seasons at WDW and whether we are camping or staying in a resort.  I am totally obsessed. :-)

I would love to Rich, but there is a problem.  I should have said that I DID have lists.  We recently lost our hard drive and I lost my lists.  I know, I know....I should have backed them up. :-/  I'm working on reconstructing them and will post them when I get them finished.  The camping list might not be much help because, over time, I have pruned from my list the things that stay in the camper and don't need to be packed every time, but I will try to add as many of those items as I can remember.

While we leave on 6/25, I have just about everything ready to go. The rest of the family takes their time, especially my son (19). He will be putting the finishing touches on his bag the night before.

:) I have been gathering things on my packing list like shampoo and toothbrushes since we made our reservation last Sept!  ( my hubby thinks I'm nuts! )   He won't actually let me begin to pack until a few weeks before!  but I'm ready!!! :)

We are leaving for our trip to the Poly on June 19 so I will probably start planning what needs to go and packing a few things this weekend. I will do the majority of the packing Tuesday and Wednesday.  I work best under pressure  :eyebrow:   Cant wait to leave. :minnie:

I chose the "never unpack" option! :)   Actually, I put a bunch of stuff in a bin to be sure they are ready and not forgotten on the next trip.  Right now in the bin there are the park brochures (we love to constantly review the old ones - especially on the plane), I also have our lanyards and pins we will want to trade, our $1.00 Wal-Mart rain ponchos, a 3 ring binder that I always bring (filled with print outs I find on restaurants, resorts, tips, etc. - anything I might want to know about Disney :) ).

In addition to this, I love to plan and begin adding to the bin months before the month I know we are going.  One month before we go I lay the suitecases out in the basement and begin to actually pack it all up.  My whole family thinks that I am crazy when I get started on the bin and even crazier when I am pretty much packed up 4 weeks out!  I am always so ready to be there that I can't stand the wait and packing seems to be one of the things that helps me pass the time!
