Although I do not think you need LOTS of time to pack, I do think it is a good idea to start a packing list well in advance.  Start your list when you know you are going and that way, you can add things as you go.  If you follow the list while packing, crossing off everything as you pack it, you shouldn't forget anything you really want or need to bring... :)

Make a copy of that list before you cross things off. You can use the copy at the resort when you're packing up to leave for home, so you don't leave anything there forgotten!

I've been wanting to pack for weeks now but due to the fact there is no where to put the suit case mom said NO. :down:  I leave on Wednesday around 5:50 pm. :bigsmile:  I started packing last night and still have the garment bag to do. :oops:

Yoo Hoo, Marcie!

If I don't catch you again before you leave, have a great trip! And try to send us an email from WDW (to DisneyEcho @ emuck.com -- without the spaces) if you can!

I tend to make lists about 3 months before I pack....and I pack a week before (although I plan for at least a year about the whole trip :) )
My DH packs his things the night before, but I can't do that...I tend to forget way too much if I do that. :crazy:

Our next trip is this November and I already have my clothes seperated out so I know which things I really want to take to Disney....DH just laughs at me  :o

If I could get away with it, I'd start now...but then the suitcases would be sitting there :tounge: teasing and taunting :tounge:  me till November 30.  So a couple days is all my DW allows. :(

I voted "the night before", but Rich would answer differently for himself.  I try to anticipate only what I'll need with some apparel overpacking in case of hot and sticky weather there'll be extra fresh clothes to change into after a midday bath or shower at the hotel.  Some sort of real life encroaches on me just prior to trip time, so it's just about last 24-hours or so leading up to departure that life lets go and my mind frees up and I can think about what to take.  I try to think firmly about "less is more" when packing because all that lugging around is no fun.
