Packing tips? Compression cubes?

:rofl: more is always good unless we’re talking about WDW price increases.

These cubes were only $17 for the 3 piece set. When I do my resort hopping I try to pack so I have to enter my suitcase and move as little as possible each time.

2 days for just you or 2 days for you and DW?

DSIS and I did this for our 6 night trip to FL last month. We didn’t want to pay for 2 check ins or any carry ons on our way to FL. We put a smaller suitcase inside the larger one. With our ebag packing cubes, we got all of our stuff in! We just barely met the weight limit though! :grimacing: On the way home, we didn’t have to pay luggage fees. We each had a suitcase and had lots of room for dirty laundry and souvenirs!

DW has her own cubes. (I don’t want either of us chasing the other for the day’s clothes when we’re trying to get out the door)

So, I put in 2 days’ worth of clothes just for me and had room to spare. (But not much, my cubes are not compression cubes)
Not sure if I’d want to stuff in a 3rd day or leave room for souvenirs.

Cubes by location. That way you aren’t having to open all the cubes at every hotel.

I put 1-2 days of clothing in each cube, including ears and MB. Otherwise you’ve defeated your purpose and have to unpack everything anyway.

yeah I think I’m going with that approach and having one cube for odd items like trousers and pyjamas

It depends on how you pack. If your clothes are rolled, the compression might not provide an advantage as rolling - carefully - tends to prevent wrinkles and compresses.

A bulky item not easily rolled works well in a compression bag tho. We used our Gonex large bag for this garment, drapy wool which remained wrinkle free when packed carefully in the compression bag. And clean - the bag was in a storage compartment system in the back of a mini-van during a two week road trip.

So I couldn’t get the compression zipper to fully close, but I thought I’d share what I fit in it. I wear a 3x-4x and was able to fit 1 pair of jeans, 2 leggings, 2 shirts, 1 thin sweatshirt, 2 pair of underwear 1 pair of socks and a sports bra in the large 10x14 cube. I probably could have fit a couple more undergarments or another shirt in there easily if I left the compression zipper undone.
