Lightbulb Planning Cards

**EDIT July 22/12**

The templates are available in the following sizes (note, they are front and back)
4x6 (only available for 3 - 8 days... not enough room for more columns)
5x7
Unfortunately, my computer has taken a turn for the worse and I am no longer able to e-mail these planners out individually.

Here is a screen shot of the EPCOT 5x7 template. I have completed a planner for each of the four parks, they have different themed images. I apologize for the size, I know they are hard to read but I didn't want to take up too much room.

Here is an example of the 7 day trip planner. I have completed 3 through 10 days.

Here's some thoughts...

How about a spot for ADR's or CS restaurants or food stops.
Maybe a place to jot down the photopass card #'s
How about a list of character spots?

IDK that might be too much info for a card?

For the OCD planner like me, a place to put in all the yummy snacks they've been dreaming of trying! Definitely ADR time/ conf number place, maybe even a place to put in the order they want to hit attractions?

OK, so I may need a full size page.

My name is flipflopmom and I have an addiction to planning!

from one ocd planner to another...

I am in the process of compiling information to make something similar for my late Aug trip. I went through the boards and found all of the ride and attraction length times thinking that maybe this will help in the decision of what rides we have time for in between fast pass rides and ADRs. Again, I am kind of organized and maybe that is taking it a litte bit to far for your average Dis-er . I was also thinking about adding a space for ADR's and confirmation numbers as others have said and parade and special event times. I also made all of mine with the park hours for not just one day, but for all of the days of our stay so that in the case of rain or if we want to revisit or attend certain parades or take advantage of EMH at another park, I have that infnormation at fingertips.

May I ask where you found the info re: ride & attraction length times? It would be awesome to have that to make calculations!
Thanks for posting!

Please check it out here!!

TIA
Hi Mickey's Girl,
I made cards a few years ago and I had our hotel number included, our ADR#'s, counter service restaurants, dining phone number, parade times, must see events/rides, shopping lists. My cards were the size of an enlarged business card, laminated and put on a caribeaner (sp) and hooked to my little Jansport backpack. One for each park. I like your ideas! Thanks again for hooking me up with your planning bible pages by the way!

Luv It!

Hey, Mickey's Best Girl- do you think you will make one with clip art for each park? I think the one you did with the MK is superb. I love that you use color etc. I hope you make some more up, thanks for sharing your talent!

You didn't specify the number of vacation days you need the planning table for so I guessed and sent you an 8 day (as well as the 4 parks). If you need a different one, just let me know.
