Whatever is 'right' for you! We always packed for every day we're gone, plus extras. I do not do laundry when I'm on vacation. LOL We drive, have motorhome, so plenty of room.Family of 4 going for 10 days I’m thinking, pack for 6 days, then wash and reuse. So pack 6 of everything only.
Right. We're a family of 5, so we're not in a situation too different (though our kids are older now). I totally get people not wanting to "do laundry" on vacation, but to us it's sort of 6 of one and a half dozen of the other. If you don't do it on vacation, you'll be left with a massive pile of nasty clothes to wash when you get home. Going home from vacation is sad enough for me, having a mountain of laundry on top of it just doesn't help. We typically only bring things like shorts and t-shirts to WDW, so doing laundry is ridiculously simple. Since we stay off site, we have a full size washer and dryer in our rental house. Toss a load in after we all get out of the shower and let it run while we're eating dinner. Toss it in the dryer while we're watching TV. Voila, clean clothes. No hard labor, no ironing. Heck, we don't even fold it.Last time, we packed one outfit per day...and drove home with a weeks's worth of stinky laundry that I had to wash at home.
This time, I am going minimal: 2 shorts each, 1 pant, 4 shirts each plus a sundress or the like for travel. I plan on washing as needed and maybe before we leave.
Plus a driving down outfit, so hopefully only 5 sets of clothing.
Washed as needed or midweek and I will carry baby wipes to keep clothing cleanish.
There are 6 of us, so that alone is 30 shirts, 18 pants, socks and undies too.
We like to have two per day as well. I think the time of year makes a difference, too. If we’re traveling in the summer when it’s 90 degrees and 100% humidity there’s no way I’m keeping the same clothes on all day. I do laundry while there to cut down on how much we have to pack.I generally plan for two outfits per day (I like to take a mid-day resort break and will freshen up and change clothing) and plan on laundering and wearing each thing twice. And at least two pair of shoes/sandals, sometimes three.
