Countdown to Disney // What's in My Luggage


1,555,200 seconds
25,920 minutes
432 hours
18 days
2 weeks and 4 days


It's Disney month! Yup, a mere 18 days and we'll be back in the homeland. I probably won't believe it until I'm actually there as I've counted down for over 400 days now haha. Last time I shared what was in my suitcase , so I wanted to do the same this year too. I still only have that pink suitcase from my 2014 post and it's pretty wrecked now but I couldn't really afford to buy a new suitcase. That lead to my luggage for this trip being a Primark holdall haha!
We're (thankfully) going Eurostar style as opposed to the hellish plane journey so what would usually be spoken about as 'hand luggage' is technically just another bag for me. My backpack with built-in camera bag which will double as my park bag. I'll do a separate 'what's in my park bag' when we get back so for now, here is what I have packed in my main luggage!


If you don't know of my organization obsession by now you mustn't come here often haha. This bag has been pretty much fully packed since early to mid-September (though I did unpack, re-wash, iron and pack again more recently)! I know we're going in November/December but I judging from the second half of October in 2014, we were 100% warm enough in just t-shirts with hoodies, that combined with the terrible global warming meaning our seasons have been coming late means I've been optimistic in my clothing choices. As you can see I have a T-shirt and Jumper with either a vest or a plain long sleeve top to go underneath each day. I will be travelling in a coat so if on the morning when we leave our hotel it's particularly nippy out I can always grab that, otherwise I will only have an extra hoodie and waterproof mac in my park bag.
I have decided to only take 2 pairs of trousers and 2 pairs of shoes for our 5 days in the park, as well as the bottoms I'll be travelling in and a separate outfit to change into the evening we go to see Buffalo Bills!


My toiletry bag is pretty straight forward and make-up minimal so that I can shower quickly before bed each evening and get ready quickly before early breakfast each morning. I like to make the most of my time at Disneyland and be in the park as much as I can so early starts are a must (who sleeps until past 7 at DLP?!).
Lastly is a few random bits. We are taking bathers just on the off chance that we get the opportunity to take advantage of that fact our hotel has a pool. It was such a pain to find a swimming costume that actually covered a portion of my body, even this is more flesh-flaunted than I'd like. Of course, I have my scarf, gloves and Chip & Dale earmuffs too - though I'll be wearing them, not packing them..duh!

That's it. We're all ready and set to go. As always I have all of my posts scheduled for the next month or two anyways so everything will be going up as normal, however, I will not be online/social media at all for the duration of my time away, nor will I be approving or replying to comments. Stick by me though and I'll be back online around the 5th of December! :)

    1. Thank you! Oh of course haha. I wear something Disney almost every single day so I had to carry that on at Disney :)
      Thank you! It's quite comfortable on too and the little polka dots are actually leaves, so rather fitting for me.

  9. I need to get my packing on! I've still got to see if I have anything Disney themed, but I don't think so... maybe some socks haha!

    I'm so hoping the weather just stays as it is at the moment, cold and about 10 degrees (well 6-11) but that's not too cold when you're moving about the whole time.
