1 week until Florida and 2 weeks until I move into my first apartment! Exciting stuff! Anyone having any Disney (or apartment!) packing tips? Thanks! :)
Take an extra shirt, pair of shorts, etc. just in case. We like to bring fanny packs (though they look reLly dorky) right size for tickets, camera, chapstick, small water bottle, and sunscreen, and cell. Not sure if youre flying, but (at least on Delta) you can have a carryon AND a personal item, which means you can bring more. And leave room in the bag for souviners! - C-Ticket  37.3 #103 6:01PM
My mother thinks I'm crazy, but I plan and layout my outfits as I pack. That way I do not waste time trying to find something that matches in the morning. I pack just what I need with only a couple extra items just in case. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  745.5 #4 6:07PM
Maybe I will see you there! If not using the dining plan pack some extra snacks. Bring extra batteries for your camera, lip balm and sunscreen. - PixieDust76  74.1 #71 6:07PM
I do the same thing College. :) - PixieDust76  74.1 #71 6:09PM
I always pack an extra pair of shorts and zip lock it so I can be nice and dry after the wet rides and have this cute mini backpack that I put it in. Actually I pretty much ziplock everything in my backpack haha that way I don't even have to worry about riding the wet rides. I also freeze a water bottle and also my spray fan bottle (LIFE savers I'm telling you) every night and they thaw out beautifully the first couple of hours giving me ice cold water. Id also pack a poncho cuz...florida can be unpredictable and those things are more expensive in the parks...hm sunblock..baby wipes/purell...and pack the most comfy shoes u own cuz its gonna feel pretty tiring by the end of the night. :) - Justplainal  7.6 #270 10:19PM
If you don't want to carry all that stuff all day you could get a locker too - Mortis  11.8 #204 10:22PM
Try not to pack more than you need, you will always come back with more stuff that you buy. I like to bring snacks and a filtered water bottle for the room and the parks. Bring a poncho or umbrella, lots of sunscreen, hand wipes/sanitizer, phone/camera chargers. Good luck with the first apartment!! - Andrea84  601.0 #7 10:55PM
Started the mountain of packing today! Thanks for all of the advice, I appreciate it! :) - LonghornGirl  4.6 #442 9:48PM
Bring your own bottled water. Park fountain water is nasty. - GusGus  776.2 #180 11:43PM
