One thing we like to do when packing for Walt Disney World is pack less clothes… Before you tell me that is not possible or how 2 suitcases are a minimum in your household here me out.
What my family and I like to do is pack enough clothes for 4-5 days tops. Then since most times we stay at a resort that has a washer or dryer in the room about half way through the vacation we do a load of laundry and then wear the same outfits all over again. It gives me a chance to bust out the Chip and Company t-shirts twice on our vacation!
Back in the good old days this meant packing detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets. Not any more.. Purex 3 and 1 sheets (as seen above) is a life & packing saver. Not only is the detergent, fabric softener, and anti static sheet all combined together if you layer them with your clothes it makes your whole suitcase smell brilliant when you get to your home away from home.
So Chip what do we do if you don’t have access to a washer or dryer? Well all of the Walt Disney World resorts have access to a laundry facility. They have coin-operated laundry rooms including washers and dryer in a central location usually by the pool. They run about $2.00 per load for the wash and $2.00 for the dryer. All laundry rooms do have access to soap and dryer sheets but are no where near as nice smelling as the Purex brand.
Tip – I do not suggest bring detergent or fabric softener on a plane with you. Who knows what the TSA or the extreme altitudes will do with that package of liquid Tide.
So what we like to do is run a load of laundry and head off to the pool. About 1/2 way through your swim session pop out, run back to the laundry room and move your clothes over to the dryer. By the time you done they are dry, fresh and toasty warm for your venture back to the parks for fireworks or a late dinner.
Well I hope this Disney World Quick Tip will help you save some space on your next vacation. Remember more room = more souvenirs you can bring back home with you.
