Wow! I've loved looking at everyone's planning binders, and now I'm motivated to start my own. Thanks, ladies!

After 3 trips with the plastic 3 ring binder, I decided I needed something more compact for the car & hotel room.

And now since we are DVC I wanted something a little more classy when I walk up to check-in.

After searching for weeks for a planner I liked enough to fork out $50+ on , I found this half size 3-ring binder at Office Depot. Thinking I had seen the sheet protectors at Michales - they said they no longer carry them. So I ordered some online from Keep Filing & they are much thicker than the ones I had years before.
~today I found the half sheet protectors at my local
Office Max even though they were not on their website.



Now if I ever get the cover sewn I will post a completed pix.

I first used a binder last year Honestly, I never really look at it once I get to WDW. But, I do use it a lot on the trip there to go over everything.

I agree- I hardly use mine when we are there either. It's just so convenient to have all the info organized before hand and then review it in the room when we get there!

I also agree. I have a planner as well which I keep all the info, mousekeeping envelops and other extras.
The only thing I bring with me to the park is a little business card holder that has 1 card for each park with the hours for the week we are there, dining ADR info and other confirmations numbers like MNSSHP. It's nice to have the hours for everything in case we decide to make a quick getaway from an overcrowded park or if we're just not ready to go back to the hotel yet!

So many good ideas. I have a binder that I keep all my reservation info, ADRs, and other tips and info I find from other disers in one. I really like the idea of having one for each trip. One more thing Disney that I can work on, I am sure my hubby will LOVE that. I will have to make a trip to Michaels for Disney scrapbooking paper and stickers.

I'm making another binder! Actually 2 more for this upcoming trip- one for my daughter and family and one for a teenaged friend we're taking with us. Like last years' notebook (my posts about it are #51 and #72- pictures on p 5) it's part itinerary, part tips, part journal, and part activity book. This year it's also autograph book and Epcot passport! I don't need as many pages for tips since much is fresh in my mind from last year. One page per park should do. Bianca has decorated those pages with cut out pictures and stickers.

I bought a mini notebook at Target- the colors just screamed Disney to me... red cover, black spine, and yellow liner. I bought a coordinating full size notebook with a yellow cover for the final scrapbook. I put Disney stickers on the front of the cover (and one small one on the bottom back)


I made section dividers with card stock. Then I punched Mickey head tabs with regular round punches. Red for daily itinerary, yellow for park sections, black for autographs. Each divider is decorated differently with stickers, stamps, themed paper, or coloring pages.


My daily section has a sheet outlined to quickly journal- same format copied from last year since I liked it. One side for AM, one for PM. I can put my ADR info there, too. (Ignore that I spelled Park "Fair" wrong!)

Autograph pages might be designated and themed like the one for the Fairies or Princesses (Bianca applied the stickers) or might be generic like the blue floral page for surprise characters. Each page is made of two sheets of regular weight paper adhered together so pens won't bleed through.


I made the mushroom embellishments with punches and textured and polka dot paper and cut out the parts I wanted. I learned last year that my book might get wet (we had a lot of storms) so I used permanent ink to stamp.

An Epcot passport page. All use this type of paper except Morocco since that wasn't available so I had to get creative there with some pretty Moroccan themed tiled paper. The page has a pocket to hold the kidcot goodies (where the pen is) and a white square for the stamp. There is room also for notes on the backsides (mine or if a CM wants to write something)


Now I have to get started on the big-girl's book!

Love it! It turned out great- I love how you made the epcot passport and autograph pages split in the middle to fit. Super job!

I had someone on the design board here make me a cover for my binder. I have the pages divided, and I take notes from here, stick them in the binder and after a while, I sort the pages and rearrange the "notes" that I have taken and get everything sorted.I also have 2 pockets that I keep my mousekeeping envelopes and the dining tip envelopes in...easy to pull out for the day along with my dining ressie card with the needed info.. I must admit, I need to do this several times before I leave, but, by that time, I have a " map" arranged in my head as to what I need to do and where I need to be at. I love all the helpful hints on here and let me tell you, wow!!! The notes I have, and I have learned so much..thank you all for your input
