Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Blue Loop. Today we are sharing some must have items for your Disney resort room.
You’ve been thinking about this day for months. Visions of your family at the Magic Kingdom watching the morning welcome show and waving to the characters. But first you’ve got to put on the adorable matching outfits you’ve packed for everyone and get to the park. Some mornings this is easier said than done. After rifling through suitcases and piles on the floor, you all manage to get dressed but not as planned. With a little bit of organization, mornings can go more smoothly.
Use what’s there.
Each of the Walt Disney World Resorts have some kind of cabinet with drawers to put your clothes in. Throw some tissue paper in your suitcase if you want to put it down in the drawers first. The rooms should also have a stand to put your suitcase on. If you’re using your suitcase to hold your clothes, putting it on the stand to keep it off the floor can be helpful too.
Pack with organization in mind.
Before you leave home, consider packing with your end result in mind. Long days in the parks followed by early morning means sleepily digging through to find clothes. Zip top bags can keep outfits together so each morning you just grab a bag and that’s what you wear for the day. You can even number them if outfits coordinate or grab a bag to throw in your park bag if you need an extra outfit. Even just layering outfits in your suitcase so you can just reach in and grab the next day’s clothes can be helpful.
Hanger are helpful.
My little one loves to help choose her outfit and that’s certainly the case when we’re at Disney. Having her outfits all hung together lets her see the options without digging through everything in a drawer or suitcase. Loop headband or hair ties over the hook of the hanger to complete the look.
Bathrooms get chaotic.
With five of us in a room, things can get a little chaotic in the mornings when we’re all trying to get ready. I pack things in zip top bags for each of the kids so there’s no fighting over who had what toothbrush or comb or whatever. Everything else stays right in the bag we brought it all in. I use a Thirty One bag that just sit on the bathroom sink or even the shelf underneath to be more out of the way.
If you’re collecting dirty clothes, decide on a spot right away. Bringing a pop up hamper to contain the clothes could be helpful as well. Shoes also seem to wind up all over our room. Having a spot to put them all can keep you from tripping over them or frantically searching for them when it’s time to head out.
