Things TO DO Before Vacation: Packing for Disney

Headed out on vacation and afraid you will forget something? READ this list: Packing for Disney World & Beyond.

Hey guys, I am headed on vacation here in a few weeks. And one thing I always worry about is forgetting something. And I don’t mean, just packing items. I know many of you also have “nightmare” like dreams before a trip. READ this list of things not to forget to do BEFORE vacation: Packing for Disney World.

Hair and Nails:

I find this to be a COMMON item that people want to do before a trip, but often forget as time draws closer. So ladies don’t forget to spruce up your color, get those “Disney” nails and make sure those feet are cute shoes ready. Guys – don’t forget to trim your hairs too. And don’t forget the kids, they need beauty maintenance too. Now for those that might be wondering, why?? Why do I need to get my hair done – PICTURES. Most people on vacation take TONS of pictures and often are seeking out that amazing family pic.

My Disney Toes. Sorry if toes gross you out – eek.
Toiletry Shopping:

I can NOT tell you how many times I ask my husband if he needs anything at the store…just to have him write items on the list AFTER I went shopping. As annoying as this is on a week basis…its very, very frustrating ONE day before your trip. So make sure EVERYONE looks in their toiletry bags, bathroom cabinets, etc and shop for all your beauty items BEFORE you go. These “oops” I forgot to pack items can be costly. This majorly includes Sunscreen, Aloe and Deodorant. So make a list, check all your bags and shop ahead.

Clothes:

So I don’t just mean packing clothes…I mean making sure you have the right clothes for the right vacation. AND I also mean, clothes that fit. I have this issue every trip. Based on temps, location, style of trip and if I added a pound or two, certain items might need to be replaced. And KIDS, make them try on their summer shorts (especially if winter) and see if you need to purchase the next size up. Bathing suites and shoes too. Do this in advance, 2 days before your trip just adds more stress than needed.

Park Bags:

I find it VERY helpful to pack my “park” bag BEFORE the trip. I do this for a few reasons. 1 – make sure you OWN everything you need. 2 – helps you see if you are bringing too much and perhaps need 2 backpacks. 3 – it prevents you from forgetting something at the last minute. Rushing to the parks in the morning it tough enough, but finding you forgot an item is worse. Practice and pack ahead.

RANDOM:

I get many emails about people forgetting certain things…so to prevent vacation “nightmares” and I mean during sleep time. Label your suitcases NOW. Add your luggage tags NOW. Pack your swimsuits, sunscreen and such items NOW. Put your Magicbands in your bags NOW. Make lists and cross of items as you pack.

Hope this helps prevent any packing drama incidences. I have become a PRO at packing, travel in general and traveling with kids.
