What's the earliest you've ever started packing? I asked for the suitcases last weekend (that would be 7 weeks out) and was told no? UGH! Gonna have to get them out myself I guess!!

TRUE CONFESSION. I'm 79 days away and I started packing at 99! I have clothes just for vacationing My kids are packed lightly. They are small my daughter has worn size 8 for 2 years lol I doubt she gain that much weight - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 5:03PM

Lol that's so funny! I borrowed my parents one year and they said 2 weeks was too early that I had to wait. :( - disneyworldsbiggestfan  65.6 #91 3:10PM
I pack in my mind, making mental notes and lists, all year long, haha. It never ends for me. Like ever. 😜 - mrsincredible  1190.0 #5 3:14PM
PS. I have so been there, and just got them down myself, lol!! - mrsincredible  1190.0 #5 3:15PM
That's how I am. Everything in my head and lists. I can't actually pack until the day before we leave. The animals will not allow it. LolπŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  664.4 #12 3:18PM
I have packed 2 weeks out !!!!! Family thought I was nuts !!!!! - skcanfield  563.4 #15 3:16PM
I started a packing list about two months ago. I've since been adding a bunch more to it and doing research on certain things like what's the best water bottle, shoe insole, line games, etc. My family thinks I'm crazy now, but I know they'll thank me for it later. ;-) - mouserie  52.2 #4694 2:29PM
That is for sure! - DizneyGirl  936.0 #8 3:07PM
1 week before. This upcoming trip is going to be the night before, because I do laundry on Saturdays. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 3:18PM
Well let's see my flight is at 10:55 am so probably around 8 or 9 pm the night before and finish up at 8:30/9 am :) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 3:24PM
That is so me! - rink2  200.9 #42 3:32PM
Last September, we went with my family and another close family, who has a 3 year old. We told her over the summer that we would be going, and she immediately started packing a bag! It was cute - MegHanSolo  9.2 #268 4:25PM
But me? I wait until the last minute... Like I do for everything else - MegHanSolo  9.2 #268 4:26PM
I always pack 2 weeks before my trip. - yessy  226.9 #40 4:38PM
Me too! Sometimes earlier!! - disneycm  701.6 #11 6:50PM
I never put mine away! Always ready to add what I pick up ahead if time - mmddgp  948.8 #7 4:58PM
I start making a list right away, and add to it as time passes to make sure I don't forget anything. I also start buying things right away, a bit at a time, and stash them in my Disney bags as I go. So yeah, I guess a year or so, depending on how far away the trip is. - PixieDust76  93.4 #76 6:55PM
I make packing lists ever since I forgot pajamas on one trip. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 8:40PM
I can vouch for bubbaschoice. She packs as soon as we get home ready for the next trip and we spend the whole time changing the clothes as we get new ones as its allways exciting seeing packed suitcases as it has that feel that we are leaving early than we actually are - puddy77  266.9 #1192 11:25PM
Ha ha I only do That with the kiddos in the event things tight or short. I didn't want to really say I never put my suitcase away the stay in our bedroom. Ha ha there I said it - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 4:18AM
Yay! I pretty much do the same thing. I buy new clothes for the grandkids every year and since we go in sept I have to buy during the summer or I won't find clothes as we get closer to our trip. So to stay somewhat organized they come from the store to the suitcase - mmddgp  948.8 #7 7:42AM
I start my packing list at 6 months, at 3 months I get out luggage and makes sure it is cleaned out. Sometines I find hidden treasures. Than at 2 months to 6 weeks I begin putting stuff in suit case and it grows from there. - Texas1112  7.6 #298 4:39AM
