The first sections is Airport, Transportation, and Hotel

Personal information is edited out.. (you never know)





The next section was our plans for each day that involved DL (again personal info taken out)





The next section was DL sched each day..



The next section was each "land" and listed the rides there, if their was a height requirement, and the ones highlighted have fp



The next section is maps- (with real ones behind it)

It's cute, and it looks like you've spent a lot of time working on it. Good Job. I would not have the motivation to do something like that. I'm more of a show up, follow the map and wing it type of person... minus restaurant reservations and like WOC and Aladdin.

LOL, I'm just not a big plan everything out person. Andy and I talked about getting ridemax, but decided we probably wouldn't follow it anyway. I think We'll find it more relaxing to not feel like we're on a schedule.

It's fun to plan I am a MAJOR planner.. which pretty much surprises everyone who knows me! lol

I get a mixed feel from it.. I forgot our plans last year so we didn't use them. But I'll probably do it and see how it goes.

WOW! You are my hero - I still have our photos/mementos from our trip 2 years ago to WDW in a box! I had even bought a super cute album at WDW, it is still shrinkwrapped

One thing I noticed - you missed a P in shopping on the Thursday page.

I have to move this over to the Trip Report section. All of the completed TR's or TR's in progress, as well as Pre-TR's, have to go over there.

HAHA on the "P" with as good as I am at it, you'd think I'd spell it correctly. Thanks I'll be fixing it I made one last time we went.. only bigger.. I hated not having it at the park with me, so this one is a lot smaller. I still have all the stuff from last trip.. I save EVERYTHING its kinda rediculas and have not even touched working on that scrapbook yet lol

I got the book at Big lots. It's just a 4*6 photo book. Each page inside I have custom made. Each page is formated to 4*6 and then I downloaded a Disney font and used that to type in the information I wanted. The characters are all made by me on my cricut. It's a lot of work, but I feel so much better organized than I would if I just "windged" it. This way I dont have to carry a bunch of papers everywhere with me.. ie.. airport, rental car, reservations.. you get it.. Its just all in one place and that will make for a more relazing trip

I agree with you. Although I think it might be hard for me to plan the rides in detail. Since I've never been so I dont really know what I'm doing. But I think it would be SUPER nice to have a general plan. And a list of rides in each area that we're interested in. And a list of resturants and menus in each area. So this type of book would be AWESOME! Thanks so much for posting it! your a really creative lady huh? I wish I had a cricut! Maybe I could just use scrapbooking thingys.

Yes scrapbook stickers and elements would do great!!!

I did do ridemax, and touring plans, if you new I would suggest it.. oh maybe get the unofficial guide to dl to! I like that as well. Even if you don't use them there pretty inexpensive and it will give you an idea of what to do.

Picking up a guide does sound like a very good idea! Even if we dont go this year then I'm sure we will go next year. The kids wont wait much longer!(me either!) lol.
*fingers crossed* that it all works out and we get to go this september!

I hope you do too!!! Maybe do touring plans, or the unoffical guide and skip Ridemax until you know your dates
