Packing Tips

Utilize a Packing List

This may sound obvious, but it’s shocking how many people pack without ever using a list. It can be done, but why not double check your handiwork with a list? Find a professionally designed list online, or simply write a list or create a list on the notes section of your phone. It’s also deeply satisfying to cross things off the list as you pack them. One reason to find a professional list online is to see if it mentions anything you may not have already thought of.

Assess Which Items Your Accommodations Will be Equipped With, Already

Hotels, resorts, and residential suites are all going to provide an array of necessary items, making it unnecessary for you to bring your own. At a residential suite-style resort, such as The Grove, towels (beach and bath), hair dryers, and toiletries, are provided. If you aren’t sure what all is provided, give your hotel a call and find out. That way you can save time and space packing those items.

To Launder or Not?

Having the ability to do laundry is always a quick way to eliminate packing anxiety. Rather than stuffing too many outfits into your suitcase, choose a hotel that has a laundry service. Better yet, choose a residential suite-style room that has laundry in the room. Either way, though, you can reuse outfits. If you’ll be traveling with kids, laundry is extra helpful as we all know how messy things can get with the little ones! Be sure to pack travel size detergent for the suite-style rooms.

Packing Cubes; Always a Good Investment

Has there ever been a travel accessory more useful than packing cubes? We think not. Save space, know exactly where everything is, and feel satisfied that there’s a method to the madness.

Save Time Later by Rolling Your Clothes

Wrinkles will likely happen to some extent no matter what, but there is one efficient way to minimize the damage, rolling. Rolling your clothes will save space and will prevent the clothes from getting absurdly wrinkled. Even if you opt for packing cubes, you can still roll your clothes within the cubes.

Relax, You Can (Usually) Buy What You Forgot

If you execute the first technique listed, use a packing list, chances are you won’t have forgotten anything at all. On the off chance, you do forget something essential, it’s usually easy to find it, wherever you may be. So, this means, relax! Get excited about your upcoming vacation and don’t sweat the small stuff.

Packing is the absolute easiest when your destination is The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando. This is because The Grove is entirely comprised of residential suite-style rooms, with their own laundry, kitchens, and common areas. You’ll have plenty of space to hang the 15 outfits you brought, or conversely to wash the two outfits you brought. Also, The Grove provides so many items you would otherwise need to bring; it makes it quite simple to pack!
