SO, yesterday I decided to go through all my options for dinner clothing and set it aside to be packed. I have my formal/semi-formal and palo clothes all set, and I found 5 more suitable outfits for the dining room...hung them all up in the guest room closet to be packed and went about my day. When I was laying in bed last night I realized I have one too many outfits...since we wont be having dinner on the ship the day we are at WDW. I just thought I would mention it here in case anyone else was trying to plan 8 nights of dining room clothes, you will only need 7(assuming you will be spending the entire day at WDW).

Fair warning! We will be repeating outfits. I'm not packing 8 days of different clothing. I will be doing laundry....

Yippee! Our cruise documents came today . . . I realize it doesn't mean that much, but I did say a little "yippee" out loud when I got the mail!

Same here. I wear my dinner clothes 2-3 times since I wear them at dinner only.

That's a great idea! I only have three nice dresses and no funds for more this soon after Christmas. I was thinking slacks but mine are all a size too big (I know, a great problem to have!) I may recycle the dresses. :-)

I bought my oldest DD a dress a year ago in store. She doesn't wear dresses so it has never been worn. I am squeezing her into for the formal night. I thought it would be cute if my younger DD wore the same dress. Yes, I'm that mom that likes to dress her kids alike. Found it in the perfect size on ebay! It was the only one on there. I am soo excited!

I'm trying to pack lightly. We are a party of five, so we will be doing laundry. I'm trying to just take one suitcase.

My girls love dressing alike. I'm sure they'll be matching at least one night. :-)

As for one suitcase for five people?!?! If you pull that off, you will be a hero in my eyes!

Katie- I love the magnet! I will probably make it too...
dismom73- My daughter freaked out about me putting my cruise clothes together in my closet. I told her "I'm not packing, I'm taking inventory!"

Wow, We will probably have 7-8 suitcases for 4 people. Let us know how it goes! We may need tips...

That's the best part of just driving to the port... I hate packing light!! I like outfit options. We usually have 4 suitcases for the two of us, 2 big and 2 small. And my purse/tote. If I ever backpack through the Himalayas or something, then I'll pack light.

Wow, 1 suitcase for 5 people! We have 5 people too, but there is no way we can do 1 suitecase...we do one suitcase just for shoes!
We will be doing laundry for our daytime clothes, and I am repeating some capris for dinner just with different tops.
We got our docs for one of our two cabins. Hopefully the second set come today. I can't believe how close it is getting!
