Packing, Packing, Packing!

Have all of you Death Eaters out there started packing yet?  Here are just a few packing tips to help you along the way.

#1 - Don't pack fresh meat or other perishable food items in your checked luggage.  Sure, you might have a nice cooling charm
placed on it, but airlines lose luggage, and meat spoils.  Plus, Orlando has plenty food, I promise you!  Apparently Greyback didn't get the memo.

#2 - Don't over-pack.  Over-packing results in overweight fees from airlines, cluttered hotel rooms, and lost personal items.  While I know you may think you need that giant plastic carrot or that lampshade (especially the lampshade, I mean, you never know when you might come across a lamp that needs some shade, especially in sunny Florida), you probably won't in the end, and the space is just wasted.

#3 - I've said it before and I'll say it again - pack plenty of clean underpants.  The Dark Lord does not appreciate dirty pants.

#4 - Bring protection.  Sunscreen is VITAL in Florida, and make sure it's a brand you trust.  As if you need anymore warning, a faulty bottle of sunscreen and two hours in the Florida sun resulted in this sunburn on my legs a few years ago (don't click if you're squeamish-seriously icky sunburn pics).  Greyback sets a good example here.  Looks like he's got protection for, er, almost any occasion.  Wow.  Go Greyback!

Now that you've (hopefully) had a few laughs - please post some of your own packing advice and/or pictures!

OH, and LADIES- if you think you are going to get a visit from mother nature, aunti flo, go on the rag, get your period, do PLAN accordingly. The resort hotels will charge you huge prices for this stuff. Ditto if you are coming with a family and need diapers.

Color code or uniquely identify your chargers for phones and cameras. I lost a phone charger this way. I use colored tape and then a permanent magic marker and label them with DROX.
