76 days and counting. First time to Disney

We are staying at the Fort. For two weeks. Dec. 13th-27th. I am having our clothes shipped through UPS to the Fort. We are taking the train from Albany NY. (Since this is our first trip to Disney. Really honestly this is our first family trip. Girls ages 9 & 10.) Any suggestions on what to pack what not to pack? What clothing to bring? Anything we shouldn't miss out on other than Disney. The girls and I are actually arriving on the 9th to have some girl time. We are definitely going to SeaWorld and Disney. There is so much going on around Disney. LEGOLAND, Universal, ect. Thanks everyone for your help.

OOH! We will be there the 19 - 26! My DD is 9. There is a camping list thread on here somewhere.
And this is a good one:
"What Disney tip are You Really Glad you Listened to?"

There is also a December Roll Call thread.

Sorry I don't know how to post the url's.

My DD9, in addition to the parks, is really excited to register for the archery lessons at FW.

As far as what to pack, Are you staying in a cabin, RV or tent? I'd bring clothes for both warm and chilly weather, you never know about December. Be sure to visit the different resorts to see them and the decorations.

Put aside some time to tour the Fort and see the Christmas decorations. Don't try to see and do EVERYTHING. You can see more on your next trip.

By the way, we'll be there at that time for our 14th consecutive Disney Christmas/New Years.

We'll be at The Fort camping Dec. 13-23.

The anticipation is almost tooo much to handle.

And by the way, it's just my hubby and me. Celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary and 1st Christmas at WDW.

Since we're in a MH, I have a little more room to bring extra clothing for any type of weather, so shorts, capris, jeans are a must.

We'll be there from the 17th - 28th.
When we go in December we make sure we pack light weight fleece jackets, hats and thin gloves. It can get pretty chilly at night. I will throw in 1 pair of shorts or cargo pants that zip off at the knee in case we have one or two warmer days.

Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are a must. I wouldn't pack 2 weeks worth of clothes, that would be to much to keep track of.
We usually fly and stay for 10 days and we pack 4 sets of clothes and wear 1. We are driving the RV this trip but I still will only pack 7 sets of clothes and I have a laundry day set aside.
Focus your attention.
