    I'm bringing my 19month daughter to WDW for the first time in December of 2012. My question is should I pack a full suitcase for 2wks or only 1wk and do laundry?


    As much as I dislike doing laundry on vacation, I would suggest packing for one week and doing laundry. First, you'll save on luggage fees with your airline!

    With a longer vacation, you'll have some down time to relax by your resort pool. Laundry facilities are usually near the pool area so that you can relax while waiting for those loads of laundry to wash and dry.

    We've done laundry many times on longer Disney vacations, especially when our child was younger since there were more accidental food and beverage spills.

    Wishing you a magical vacation to Walt Disney World. A first trip to Disney is very special and you're traveling there during December when the parks and resorts are at their finest. The decor is incredible!
