Keep Spare Clothes in Your Carry On
“Keep things like a bathing suit and an extra set of clothes in your carry on just in case your luggage gets delayed–or worse, lost!”
This is a great thing to do especially if you’re using Disney’s Magical Express. This service is great because it picks you up at the airport and drops you at your hotel, with any checked luggage magically arriving in your room later–but the stress there should be later. If you get to the resort with nothing other than the clothes on your back and its four hours before your luggage with your bathing suit gets there and you have nothing to do but watch tv…well you see where this is going. Good rule of thumb is to pack a spare set of clothes and anything else you think you’ll need (like a bathing suit) just in case something happens to your luggage or if it is delayed in arriving. We usually carry on a garment bag full of nice clothes that we wear out to a nice dinner the first night we’re there and also a bathing suit in case we want to hit the pool while we wait!
