    1
    Get a sturdy, large bag or suitcase. If you're planning on packing a large amount, make sure your suitcase/bag has a lot of room and maybe even wheels so you don't have to carry it, you can just pull it. You can buy a bag/suitcase practically anywhere, even online. Make sure it can fit everything you're going to need before you buy it.

    Gather up all of your toiletries. Put these in the smallest or medium compartment in your suitcase. Toiletries include toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, perfume, lotion, nail polish, nail polish remover, face wash, bands for braces, etc.

    Pack your clothes. This should go in the biggest compartment of your bag since it's probably going to be a lot. It is hot and humid in Florida for most of the year. Temperatures in the summer can reach over 95 °F (35 °C). Make sure you pack underwear, bras, capris, shorts, short sleeved shirts, dresses, socks and maybe leggings or jeans if you're planning on wearing them during a cooler day or at night. Also pack pajamas. Pack enough, if not more for the number of days/nights you're staying. For example, if you are staying for seven days, don't pack two shirts and two pairs of pants. Even if they have a washer and dryer in your hotel, this isn't a good idea because who wants to spend their entire time at Disney washing their clothes? If you're staying for 7 days you should probably bring 7 pairs of clothes, at the least 5/6.

    Gather things for the road and put them in a separate plastic bag. This might be food for the road or anything you think you might need. You also might want to pack money in your bag so it's easy to get to when you need it.

    When you pack, make sure you do it to save as much room as possible and to prevent smashing/wrinkles/etc. Roll your clothes up like you would a sleeping bag and stack them up together, and as for everything else, try to fit it in in a way where it won't be taking up too much room.

    Check to make sure you're not missing anything. You might want to make a packing checklist ahead of time so you don't miss anything, because that would be terrible if you forgot something very important for your trip, and let's face it...if you're going to Disney you are probably very excited and might miss something while packing.
