  • you should like your packing the right amount. Can you wash when there and if so then can cut down and mix match your clothes. If can wash then yes, I would take an outfit per day.

  • We just went the first week of May- I did not wear capris even at night - it was hot already by then. I did take extra shirts because I don't like to be sweaty and extra underwear because I have a weak bladder when pregnant. I was 7 months at the time. What I used a ton of was sunscreen- we went through three spray bottles in 9 days!

  • No that sounds about right, but if you have access to laundry machines i would pack less.

  • I would take at least two days worth of clothing. Are you going to wear your "night outfit" to the laundromat?

  • Oh, my friend just got back from Give Kids the World and Disney with her 3-yos Make A Wish! (and DH and other 4 kids, of course). They did have a washer/dryer in their cottage, IIRC.

    I don't know about day/night outfits, but having a change every day is good if you plan on doing anything but going to bed after getting back from a park. You could probably get away with one suit, but I don't think two is too many.

    If you WANT to take less clothes, you could probably get away with a midweek wash and one or two less night outfits (b/c there will likely be 1 or 2 nights you do just come and crash), but this is a once in a lifetime - literally - trip, so don't feel like you need to pack to do laundry. Your fairy godmothers want you to enjoy your son, your family, and your trip - NOT worry about laundry!
