And I'm sure Minnie will be thrilled when I tell her that we're invited to your place for dinner! Boy, oh boy!

hehehehehe...you two are always forgiven, and you're more than welcome to come to dinner anytime you're free, but now, as far as those collectables, etc., go.....well, you can just forget it, pal!  It took years to collect them! They're mine, all mine....and all paid for, too! So, there.... :tounge:

Well, I answered a couple of days before, but it depends.  This trip (We are leaving Saturday), I will do most of my packing Saturday afternoon as our flight is not until 7:30 Saturday night.  

Most of the time I do an urgent night before packing gig.  YAWN...Wipes me out.

It usually takes us a week to get everything done, because you always get the suitcase done and then - oops we forgot something - and then you have to open it up again. You learn your lesson after awhile.

All I have to do is add my clothes and I am ready to go!  I have seperate items that remain in my suitcase (this saves a lot of time)  I use zip lock bags for just about everything & take along a couple of large trash bags for dirty clothes & they are great for wrapping your spare shoes/sandals to keep them from getting your other items dirty.

I have to admit, I am constantly packing or preparing for Disney!!  As soon as we book a trip, I start squirreling away new outfits (buying them as overstocks, end of season)!  Then about 4 months out, I prepare the "LIST"  :D  !!!!!  Actual packing begins about 3 weeks out with the final stuff going in the night before (ie: meds).  I know it is obsessive, and DH knows better than to question me about it  :laugh:

:pixiedust:
I start packing about a month in advance!  But, I still find things in my suitcase that I left unpacked from the last trip to WDW!!!    I am actually rather sad about it, but I won't be able to go until hopefully next year now...  Got all the way to Orlando this year, and actually on the property, but, wound up not going to the parks.... bummer!  At least I saw the castle from the monorail!!!!  I am planning to go to Disneyland in 2005 for the 50th birthday celebration... I am 6 months older than DL, and I think it would be a great place to turn the big 50!!!! :wink2:   Also, if I am driving, I pack the car the night before.... that way, we can just leave in the morning!

Are you kidding?! I never even really unpack from my previous trips! :sorcerer: I count the days between Disney trips because not only do I love Disney, I love the fact that it's been a comforting constant through my whole life. When the whole world is constantly changing around and sometimes in really frightening ways, it's wonderful to step back into Disney and know it's basically just as I've always loved it. I've never changed on the inside at all, but the whole world has changed drastically around me, and I love that Disney has stayed the same along with me. It's my home away from home and a gift from God and the one place I can always go where I'm accepted as I am without being mocked. I'm a child stuck in a grown-up body!

I'm also stuck in the seventies but that's another story...wasn't that a wonderful time to be loving Disney?

I pack very light because I love to shop while I'm out there, too! That's one reason it takes so long to raise the money as I always want to raise extra stuff to get those special things you can't get anywhere else. And you know how pricey Disney stuff is! I also always make sure to raise cash for at least one character meal.

I'm also always trying to concoct ways to get myself to WDW a.s.a.p., I always have to plan and pay for it in advance cuz it's so pricey. On my next trip I want to stay at Pop Century in a seventies area!  :wwww:
