My kids are 8, 6, and 3 and our first trip to WDW is coming up in October! I was all about planning around this time last year and then Covid happened and all planning stopped. We just decided we are still going and now I’m a little panicky trying to figure out how we should pack. I love the idea of them having their own little luggage rolling bag but the practical side of me hates to spend money on a small bag or suitcase they’ll quickly outgrow!! But then again they’re only little once and it’s been a heck of a year so maybe I should splurge? What did you guys do?
I’m waffling between just cramming the adults stuff all together in the carry-on and having the three kids stuff in one large suitcase to check. Less to keep up with!! But the organized part of me loves the idea of having their things separated (and having more room in my bag for things we don’t want to by down there like stuffies, mouse ears, princess dresses). And the sappy part of me just wants to see how excited they get about their own suitcase and going to WDW and take pics of them packing who knows what and then have to repack it for them of course. But should I just get a small backpack they will use more and do the same thing but for less $$ ?
So… what do I do? Pack it all like a grownup? Give the kids their own litlle luggage? And if so, any bookbag for the plane vs kids rolling luggage suggestions??
