Yes, everywhere I have stayed has a new plastic bag to go inside so the ice never really touches the inside of the bucket.

We have stayed at POP with 4 in room (DH, DS 10, DS 8, myself). I get 2collapsable storage cubes (I think they are 10x10x10"). I pack the boys clothes for an outfit each day in a ziplock bag (tee shirt, short, undie). If you fold clothes really flat and get the air out of ziplog bag, you can fit about 7 bags in each cube. I keep the cubes on floor in closet.
I used to use the over closet rod storage (I think it's for sweaters..there are 6 compartments) but the kids clothes were too heavy for it. It would work for little kids as there clothes are smaller.
I get 2 pop up hampers for under the sink; one for dirty clothes, one for shoes
We keep suitcases next to kids bed on inside wall
Small collapsable cube to keep on tv stand for keys, change, maps

There are 4 of us. We Tavel fairly light and DD(20) is learning. Each person gets one suitcase and one drawer and is in charge of their own stuff. Toiletries go on the the vanity and are kept in a makeup bag, one for me and one for DD. DH has his travel bag with razor deordant and such. DS throws deordant in suitcase and needs nothing else. Dirty clothes go in the suitcase. The amount of shoes is never a problem cuz remember, everyone's things must fit in one suitcase and this year we are only bringing carry ons We bring this folding contraption from the container store to hang bathing suits.

Electronics: iPad (no more laptop for DH to check work stuff thank goodness), and 4 phones. That is it. Not bring extra chargers.

When DD was small, her socks, hair bows and such were kept in separate baggies. Sure wish I would thought of keeping entire outfits together

Thank u for the tips!

For me, all dirty laundry goes into a trash bag which is then packed into the suitcase to take home and wash. I usually get travel sized toiletries, especially those toothbrushes that are two pieces, all of which I can throw out when we leave. Makes for more souvenir space! I never use the drawers even for dirty clothes because God only knows what's been in them and I highly doubt housekeeping cleans the inside of every drawer in every room every time someone leaves.

There are many great threads with packing and room organization ideas on the tips board too....sorry, many of you will now be there making more lists!

People, a thing on germs....don't fret the drawers, put your clothing in there and relax, you touch, sit on, lean against, etc tons of things in your daily life that are flithy and full of germs, some of this is GOOD for us, it's how we build our immunities. Use common sense, wash your hands, and if it makes you feel better, wipe the drawers with a wipe. The last two trips I have brought the wipes, and been so excited, I still just put my stuff in the drawers without wiping so I could organize our room and get going!

Disclaimer on unpacking - our room at Yacht Club flooded last week due to a pipe breaking in the floor - thankfully, I was all unpacked an things were in drawers except the pop up hamper with dirty clothes and our shoes. Make sure to keep electronics off the floor as well.

I like the idea of the shoe organizer for the toiletries and bath items, but I have always found plenty of room on the counter to neatly store these things (I keep them in zip locks and those free gift with purchase Clinique bags) Pop up hamper and clothes pins are a must for me. I also bring a room spray from Bath and Body for the bathroom, then that scent reminds us of Disney the rest of the year.

head over to the tips board - all you type A's will love it there! I do!

This is a great tip! I do the same thing. I know that lots of people say "I would never do laundry on my vacation!" but you can hang by the pool while the laundry is going. To me, it's totally worth it so I won't overpack!

We do laundry by the pool also. The pop up hampers from Dollar Tree have handles so you can carry the dirty clothes to the laundry room.

Of course I am that person who will not let anyone touch anything in the room until my mini can of Lysol is empty, and I have checked out the beds.
HEE HEE!!! I am with you! My husband complains that noone can breath in our room for several hours due to the lysol fog! I also, bring my own sheets and blankets and clorox the bathroom!
