OK gang, here are some more ideas for those of you starting out. As I posted earlier, this is a 5.5 x 8.5" day planner book that I personalized for our family. (Dissers from the Creative forum may recognize some of their work here for which I thank you). The book zips all the way around which helps to keep everything together.

Outside spine (sticker on the spine I purchased from Michaels):


Inside (notice zip pocket, credit card slots, etc):




One of many planning sheets:


Resort Information:


Park specific dividers. On the back of the title page I put park maps:




Front Cover pocket (great for passports, boarding passes, etc):


And last, but not least, the super handy handles! (they go in when not in use):


There is another divider for each of the following:
Disney Cruise (our first, and boy is this section is getting full!)
Dining
"Mousellaneous"
"Money Matters" which I have included credit card company phone numbers, travellers cheques numbers, trip payment information, etc.
I also made my own Disney notebook paper
And yes, before you ask, my family thinks I am insane!

Begin building your own planning book/binder at your own risk!

I got it at Walmart. The brand is DayOne. It also comes in Black. I paid $25.00 for it up here in Canada.

It was really easy to put together, all I had to do was change the paper size to "half" and away I went. With the help of some internet clipart and some awesome designs from the Creative DISigns forum I was in business.

PS. Your comments really cracked me up!! I can't wait to show the family that there IS some appreciation for organization in the world!

Hi

I'm so excited to start my own. We're going in August and I know we'll need a schedule and strategy to have the best time. So I might as well have it in an awesome and fun organizer

I'm having trouble finding the Creative DISigns forum. Do you have a link??

Thanks, Dana

Okay I have a really silly question! LOL
The problem I'm having with these smaller binders is I can't figure out how to hole punch the pages with the 7 ring binders- without punching nine million holes LOL! I have a 3punch adjustable... Kathy? How did you do yours?

That is the one down side to the small binder. All I do is take a sheet that I removed from the binder (the MANY pages that they come with) and I hold it up to my printed page and I use a single hole punch. It is a little more time consuming than punching all at once but it works like a charm.

I'm sooo glad you liked my addition to the thread. I was feeling a little like a "thread-crasher"!
Please continue to ask any questions you may have.

No no no you're fine!! And I figured something out. I am a nut for tab dividers that have the pockets in them. That was one of the reasons I wanted to switch from a 'blank book journal' to a ringed binder. That way each day has a tab and in the pocket I can put my ADR card, Mousekeeper envelope, and any other whatnot I collect that day.

Of course, they don't make small ringed binder- sized tab dividers let alone pocket kind! But I stuffed one of the planner pages inside the pocket and viola! Very easy to cut it with my ummm... whatever you call the scrapbook cutting thingy!!

I am glad I'm not the only slightly OCD planner

I was going to make some pockets out of scrapbook paper. Although heavier cardstock may be a better idea.
Boy, do I ever feel at home in this thread!
