Packing List

Packing for the Disney College program was no easy feat. If you’ve watched my first vlog, then you would know that I tended to get ahead of myself in the packing and organizing department. For my 2015 Disney College Program, I drove my car with both my parents from Chicago, Illinois with my arrival date being August 17th. Unlike participants flying, I had the luxury of a little more space, and not having to ship items down to Orlando. But also due to my over-organization, I made a very detailed list of what to pack. I figure the more detailed I was, the less chance I had of severely over-packing!

Although I drove my car, it was not the biggest of vehicles. Also, going into the program, it was not a permanent move for me, so my goal was to only pack what I truly used and needed. So the more space I saved the better. I had a more detailed list for my personal use, but for this post I decided to made a more general one! So without further delay, here is what I packed for my program!

Obviously reading this list, it seems like a lot. Although it needs to be kept in mind I’ll be living there for at least 6 months. My goal was to make the list as detailed as possible, that way I don’t bring anything that isn’t on the list. I also plan to use space bags to save extra space, and to make things more compact! Many things like groceries, cleaning supplies, and bath products I plan to buy after I arrive opposed to trying to squeeze it all in my car. Many items, such as kitchen tools and appliances, can also be divided amongst roommates to bring. Check out my progress below to see how my packing is coming along!
