I can't figure out how to post a poll...so I'll just ask. I'm thinking about these two options...
1. pack less and do laundry halfway through the week we are in the World,
2. pack more and not do laundry
I'm leaning towards the first for a few reasons...packing less is always good, doing laundry will force me to slow down and stay at the resort for at least a few hours, and coming home with some clean laundry is always good.
Then again....do i want to do laundry on vacation??
I pack enough clothes for the week. Two things I don't do on vacation....Laundry & Driving. I do enough of that at home! If for some reason my DD needs laundry DH will wash a load, but I refuse as it's my vacation too.
We usually do laundry. I know what you mean about doing laundry on vaca, but it doesn't take that long and it can be done while the family is having some down time around the pool or even taking a nap!
I have found that I truly don't mind doing laundry while I'm there. I do it after the kids go to bed. I put the clothes in the washer, head to the food court and fill up my refillable mug with some Diet Coke, stroll around POR (it's quiet and so nice!) a bit, go back and put the clothes in the dryer and will usually sit and write some notes about our days so far or read a book or my PP. And I like coming home with clean clothes.
We went in December and the boys each only packed one pair of shorts and a bathing suit, so they needed to have their shorts washed. Jamie on the other hand packed an appropriate outfit for every day!
I usually end up doing at least 1 load while we are there so that if the kids stain their clothes (ice cream, chocolate), the stain won't set. I always pack a stain stick for that purpose but throwing a load in while the kids swim is not a big deal.
We always do laundry while on vacation because i refuse to pack dirty stuff and feel overwhelmed with 4 loads of laundry upon my return home... a Disney vacation is exhausting! Take advantage of the laundry facilities, do 3 or 4 loads all at once and enjoy the resort grounds, pool or hot tub... you won't be sorry!
