    Hi How are you I am planning a disney trip in may 2014 but when I look to book it, it suddenly occurred to me that it does not tell you how much baggage you can take with you. If you could help that would be great. Many thanks

    Hi Paige!

    Thanks so much for sending us all of your questions! We love them!!

    I over pack for everything. When I drive down, my minnie van is always loaded to the hilt. When I fly down, I am the one praying my baggage doesn't go over 50 lbs and sometimes end up digging stuff out.

    Disney doesn't limit how many bags you can bring with you but here are some things I'd recommend you keep in mind:

    * If you are flying, check with your Airline carrier regarding baggage limits and fees per person.
    * You can always ship some things to your resort to avoid taking them on the flight with you (i.e., diapers, wipes, etc.).  Just make sure you'll have what you need to get you through your flight until you reach your resort.
    * Organize before you pack. For example, I go ahead and pack an extra set of clothes for my boys to take into the parks in a gallon Ziploc. Organize your toiletries in an over the door hanger as you pack. That way they will be organized so you can unpack quickly when you arrive and set out on your adventures.
    * The less you bring the less you'll have pack up when you leave. That's a very hard rule for me to follow but I've found I really don't need 20 T-shirts for a 5 day trip & if worse comes to worse, I can find an hour to do some laundry.
    * Pack small - take travel size bottles of shampoo, etc.
    * Remember, the less you bring, the more room you'll have in your room.

    Keep your questions coming!  We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-)  Allison
