    Just curious how many people actually unpack their suitcase and use the drawers, closet etc? Do you use the drawers under the bed, in the dresser, etc?

    eta- I just added a 4th choice, for those who prefer that option.

    My choice was not on there.
    I don't use the closet but I do use the drawers.
    I hate having to lift the suitcase onto the bed daily to take stuff out.
    I put my clothes in the drawers and other things I need I set on the table/counter space/sink area/shower.
    I make sure to pack in order of day so I can just grab my outfit before bed and in the morning I carry it to the bathroom where I shower and dress.
    Makes it go more smoothly.

    We all use the packing cubes, which we love. We unpack those and place them in the drawers and hang up what needs to be hung up in the closet.

    Same here.

    With the cubes, we’re unpacked in <5 mins. Love those things.

    I voted other. :)

    It depends on how long we’re staying. 2-4 day trips, we usually don’t unpack. If the trip is a week or more? Yes, definitely, we unpack everything and use drawers and closets.

    I'm the same as @Disneylover99 , it depends on the length of trip. It also depends on the activities I'd be participating in. If I packed a dress for a formal evening/event, I would use the closet even if it was short stay. But that doesn't happen often, so I think I unpack if it's 4+ nights.

    If we don't unpack, it doesn't feel like we're 'there', more like just passing through another motel on the road.

    We unpack as soon as we arrive. I hate digging through luggage for stuff.

    Ditto...we love packing cubes and use every hanger in the closet. Don't want to have to iron clothes when I'm on vacation.

    Never unpack in any resort. Live out of our suitcase, never put suitcases or bags on floors, use the closet for hanging items. No thanks on any resort drawers.:eek:

    On the suitcase rack, if we have a few, sometimes dressers, sometimes a chair.

    It depends on where we are staying and for how long. We only use the closet to hang beach towels and things like that. Not clothes. If we are doing one night in a value before we move on, we pack one overnight bag for the 4 of us, and take that plus the tote with toiletries in the room and leave the rest in the van. If we are settled in for our trip at a WDW resort, we usually unpack the suitcases and put them back in the van so we have more space. When we stayed in a 3-bedroom condo this past summer, DH and I did not unpack, we left the suitcase on the floor of our bedroom. I don't know if the kids unpacked or not.

    Never. Unless you count removing toiletry case to sit on the counter. Aside from that, I hate packing so why on earth would I unpack just for a few days in a hotel, only to have to repack again.
    I rarely have anything nice enough to need to hang but if there is a reason we have something nice with us we may hang that item.
    I put my bag on top of the suitcase rack and take out the items I need each day.

    We put ours on the suitcase rack. I mean, that's what it's for, right? To hold your suitcase

    We also use packing cubes. They make it very quick and easy to unpack our suitcases. We place or cubes in the drawers and also hang our clothes in the closet. For us not going in and out of a suitcase daily makes it seem like we are at home.

    Ironing! Blech. What an awful 4 letter word. That's why one brings only clothes that do not need to be ironed. Add to that it means breathable and wicking fabrics and that's ideal for Disney anyway.

    I unpack the kids clothes. I leave the adult clothes in the suitcases. No idea why it's just the kids clothes.

    I'm pretty grossed out by the drawers. I doubt they are cleaned between every guest. I have stayed in more than one resort and opened drawers only to find someone else's things (everything from glow sticks to underwear)

    We usually unpack into the drawers , but as a family of 5 it just makes it easier. We use packing cubes also.
