I really, really, really want to start packing RIGHT NOW!!!  I mean, fer cryin' out loud, it's only 5.5 weeks away!!!  But those durned kids have summer camp to go to mid-July and we have a family reunion the 4th of July weekend, so I just can't get started on my REAL vacation yet!   But I have LISTS!  Boy, do I have lists!  I found a check-list online ( don't ask--I can't remember where! ), and modified it for our family and printed one out for each person.  (It had BABY stuff on it!  I don't want to take BABY stuff!  Yikes! No more babies!  LOL! )  Anyway, it's a Word document if anyone wants to see it; I'd be happy to email it to you.  ( Note to self:  update email address in DisneyEcho profile to reflect new HIGH SPEED INTERNET ADDRESS!  Woo hoo!  Disney and Broadband all in one summer! )  webchyck@comcast.net

Depends on what it is.  I packed my tickets as soon as I got them (and I've prepaid for PI, DQ, AP and Cirque tickets (as well as US/IOA, including HHN tickets)- they're all in an envelope), so they've been packed for about a year prior to the trip.

I have a special bag for toiletries that pretty much stays packed all the time - I used to business travel a lot, so that helped.

Clothes, though, I wait until the last minute, after checking the weather - we normally travel Oct/Nov, and you never know then!

For us, and living in south Florida, packing isn't much of a problem, as we always drive...4 hours... and keep a few things ready to go! For example, we have one suitcase packed with toiletries, Disney t-shirts, shorts, pants, sweats, plus some extra underwear. Then, in a large Mickey bag I have several ziplock bags wich hold our AP's, poncho's, MNSSHP tickets, $100, pin lanyards, and ziplock bags of coffee, tea, sugar, and coffeemate (we usually use cream, but this is just in case), plus a small coffeemaker. These 2 bags are ready at all times! So whenever we have a trip coming, I just wait until 2 days ahead, pack whatever else we need and we're off! Oh, yes! Our confirmation letters go in the Mickey bag as soon as they arrive!  :flag2:

Yoo Hoo, ladymarganne!

That's a great way to be ready to go at the drop of a mouse-eared hat, ladymarganne!

And by the way, even though you joined the Disney Echo some time ago, this is your first post, so it is my first opporTOONity to welcome you! We're glad you joined us here! I've enjoyed reading your messages on the Disney Dollarless list.

Here's a Minnie-style pair of EchoEars just for you, ladymarganne:


Thanks for joining the Disney Echo and please share more of your Disney tips with us here!
:nod:

Yoo Hoo, Maggie/ladymarganne!

...or perhaps I should call you aladymarganne, hmmmm?
:glare:

That's what you were calling yourself way back in January 9, 2002, the day after you joined the Disney Echo under that different name. So, uh, what's goin' on? You think you can just post under any old name you want here? Huh?
:shifty:

And I went and gave you Disney EchoEars back then, just like Rich did yesterday. Maybe that's it... you're a Disneyana collector and you'd think ol' Mick wouldn't notice, huh?
:eyebrow:

Awww, Mickey! So sorry about that! We changed to cable shortly afterward and I lost all my passwords, etc. But, I am sooooo very glad that you remember me. You know you're my very favorite *mouse* in the whole wide world! As for being a Disney fan...you bet! I wish you could see our house! Disney collectibles all over the place and a special guestroom/bathroom done in Tropical Mickey with pins and collectables all over the place! Why! Even our dining room has Gourmet Mickey settings and you and Minnie have a special spot in our living room!!  :flag2:

Yoo Hoo, Mickey!

Actually, Mickey, she can.
:grin:

Anybody can post under any name they want to here! Or did you forget that?
