    We need advice of how to pack for ourselves and 10 year old daughter. How many suitcases do you recommend taking and being able to have room to bring back souvenirs without having overweight charges? Do we pack a suitcase inside another?

    Hi Melissa!
    A lot will depend on when your trip is. Obviously, packing is much "lighter" if your trip is during the warmer/hotter times of year.
    I have two girls, 9 and 14, and they each bring a roller suitcase of their own and I usually bring a bigger roller suitcase for my stuff and the souvenirs. We have never had a problem with room for our "extras" or the weight flying home. I would suspect you should be OK with one suitcase per person.
    If, by chance, you splurge on souvenirs, it is possible to have some of the heavier items shipped to your home right from the gift shop where you purchase. I do this often with heavier/bulkier gifts because the shipping charges are based on dollar amount and not weight. Something to keep in mind,.
    I hope this helps a bit and I wish you a Magical trip soon!! :)
