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  159.6 #46 8:27AM
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. 😃 - Schramke  409.8 #15 8:34AM
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  765.5 #6 8:52AM
Your vacations are an adventure from start to finish! ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1017.1 #139 9:55AM
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 #16 10:32AM
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  20.8 #148 10:50AM
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 #69 11:07AM
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  150.9 #50 11:20AM
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  769.8 #5 1:06PM
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  797.0 #3 7:57PM
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  98.3 #63 8:39PM
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  505.8 #11 8:40PM
