Hi mw , ok so we have some awesomely organized planners on here that I'm a little jelly of but what I want to know is anyone a last min possibly way unorganized planner , the only thing I ever plan carefully is dining I pack very last min which I have forgotten my hubs belongings but he got a shopping spree out of it , I left behind souvenirs but thankfully an Awsome cm came to the rescue and they were recovered in a couple of days and we have missed our flight home as crazy as this is our trips never lack exciment so is anyone else like this, lol:)

I plan out our whole trip but I always pack the night before, which means we are up late that night and worrying and cant sleep so it's not great packing then but oh well - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:27AM
My hubby plans nothing he's just along for the ride. Honestly I like it that way. I have a system. I have our trip planed and I do pack the night before to even right before we leave. But that's because I don't want my cats in our luggage. But packing goes smoothly because I make lists. Lots of them. What I need to buy what needs to be pack. You name it I have a list. πŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  664.4 #12 5:34AM
My hubs completely depends on me to pack for him, which works well for us because I am at the other end of the planning spectrum. :) - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 5:52AM
You are a busy, busy traveler! I would never pack my hubby's thing, what if I forgot something, LOL! He packs his stuff, then the rest is up to me. I even load the van, you know, cuz I can fit more stuff in!! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 6:57AM
Haha!! He has packed for himself before and fogotten his toothbrush, etc. So, he'll lay out a few things, but I do the mental checks for each day as I put things in the suitcases. But, for sure I make the hubs do the heavy lifting once they are packed full!! ;) - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 7:55AM
What we wear is pretty easy considering we match, and have the shirts made or bought well in advance!! :) - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 8:43AM
I do always run down the list with him, but honestly we've never forgotten anything! Must be my crazy detailed packing lists! Watch, this time I'll forget something important, like the kids, LOL!! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 8:50AM
Jeez I'm the only slacker my hubs should pack his things and maybe I wouldn't forget lol - tracsant  1478.4 #2 9:54AM
I don't pack for my hubby either, Diz. However, like you, I pack the car! I can get so much more in it too! Of course, I don't tell him this. I just try to hurry and pack it before he has a chance. If not, I try to sneak out and re-pack to make it more efficient. I sound like a crazy person, don't I? :) - BagGal  340.9 #25 3:49PM
No BG, not at all!! I go around the hubs all the time to re-do stuff without letting him know. Must be the Disney planner in our blood!! :) - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 5:27PM
Must be! Oh good. Glad I'm not crazy. Or, if I am, at least I'm not alone. ;) - BagGal  340.9 #25 5:38PM
Your vacations are an adventure from start to finish! ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 6:55AM
Ain't that the truth! I'm actually going to go with the flow next trip!! In fact, I'm going to this trip, minus the dining ressies! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 7:07AM
That's kind of all you need dining ressies but if you don't have ressies you might be having an interesting trip trying to get walk ups and maybe just eating quick service - nodell111  166.4 #54 7:32AM
Yes, I'm nervous to not do ressies for TS. However, in September it's probably better than most months! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 8:51AM
A true adventure indeed all part of the magic, last yr surprise surprise forgot to bring my dining conformation which I usually never do and the 1 time I do they couldn't find any of our rezez so we missed out on a lot of our fave places but the cms were so nice about I couldn't get mad but they did find them the last day some kind glitch that they more than made up for by sending us 3 fast passes each for our next trip good up until 2013 :) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 9:59AM
We are a family of 6. My wife packs her stuff and I pack mine including tooth brush and other toiletries. I also pack cameras, batteries coolers, bottled water etc. Our kids are pretty good about packing underwear and socks but they still need help with clothes. I generally load the van myself when it's "GO TIME"! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 7:32AM
"GO TIME!!... the official MW catch phrase when your countdown hits zero!! LOL - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 8:36AM
We need t-shirts!! - BagGal  340.9 #25 3:51PM
Yes, we do!! :) - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 6:01PM
I like to "plan out" in my mind, the things we want to do for the trip. But I usually only have lists for shopping and packing. Once the trip starts it's pretty much go with the flow. We do the QS dining plan, so there are only one or two special ressies to deal with, the rest is just FUN! - poohbr1205  21.2 #167 7:50AM
I'm a planner ... About anything, and everything! Down to the smallest detail! Lol My husband is very opposite. He tends to fly by the seat of his pants! Lol - JessiBelle22  78.4 #82 8:07AM
haha, just like us!! - mrsincredible  1190.1 #5 8:38AM
That's us too, JessiBelle! - BagGal  340.9 #25 3:51PM
Depends who i'm with. If it's just me and my bf,then i do the planning. If it's me and friends,then we're usually on the exact same page and know mentally what we're going to do (it's basically planned around dining.lol) If it's me and my family, then my brother usually takes the reigns w/the planning. Our schedules are almost always planned around food tho. It's a common theme to any disney trip..lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 8:20AM
Nope we are well oiled family. Lol. I organize everything and hubby packs it. When we are coming we pack really early. ( weeks early). When we are going home we pack 2 days before. So we don't wast time do it the night before. - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 10:06AM
I'm actually one of the OCD planners you spoke about at the beginning of your post. However, in the week or so leading up to every trip I dream about being late for my flight because I forgot to pack, at all! I'm sure this reoccurring nightmare goes back to the OCD thing, LOL! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.2 #3 4:57PM
Last trip was as chaotic planning last min as it could get for us. Cuz normally it's fun to plan for me, plus I can't stand the wait lol! But last yr we had a crisis. My uncle who promised to watch my dogs bailed out on us. Ahhh! I wouldn't board my dogs and anyway they can't b bcuz of my sick dog who was doing ok at that time but she can't get any shots. Anyway so we had to find a fam member to sleep here or come 3x a day....I love my cousins who came to the rescue. But so the last night (we leave at 3am) I was making all their food dishes for 10 days fed 2x a day and the get home made so omg it took hours and I just should've done it sooner but we didn't know who'd watch the dogs! Anyway it was so hard leaving the dogs!! I wish they could chill out in a wdw resort lol. - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 5:39PM
Well aren't they making a wdw dog resort now? Or some other kind of dog thing? I knot sure though - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:42PM
Are they making a dog resort??!! I know they have a dog daycare and it looks nice but its like boarding not a resort with us - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 5:47PM
Well I'm not really sure maybe I kind od forget were a read about this sorry - nodell111  166.4 #54 6:03PM
I used to be OCD, but we now tend to plan as a group on our first night. We make about 3 dining reservations and that's all. - ally  509.0 #17 5:40PM
