I have been thinking about making a big one and a small one to take in the parks but I don't even know where to start. Anyone want to offer some advice
Thanks

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!
LOVE this

I started over on the Creative DISign board, got most of my "pages" from DISigners over there and just tweaked them to my liking, I started with my smaller one, with the want of being able to document EVERYTHING from my daughters first trip. When I found the templates for the 8 1/2x11 pages i decided to make the larger one(i believe the DISigners name is SleepingBooty, something along those lines) and I got the smaller templates from "Dolly", I have the link to her 4shared files saved on my computer if you would like it. I made my dividers, took a regular dividers and traced them onto pink scrapbooking paper and cut them out. I bought the covers at Archivers, along with the clear photo holders, I then had the whole thing bound at Kinkos(about 10 dollars), the whole smaller planner probably cost me about 15 dollars. The big binder cost me about 5, the cost of cardstock(which is what I printed everything on) and the cost of the binder Hope this helps!

distance to parks from resorts

These ideas are all great! Thank you to everyone who has shared.

Can anyone tell me how to find the time it takes to get from your resort to the parks? I know I've seen it before, but I cannot find it anywhere.
Thanks so much!

I put in tons of info...

Overview of trip= dates, reservation number, resort info airline info etc

Park hours

Advance Dining Reservations numbers, dates times places

RideMax Plans

Touring Plans crowd calendars, maps

a page of friends email addresses to use at innoventions etc where you can email people pics you created

I have menus from the restaurants we've been to or are going to from the all ears site

tips, pressed penny locations, Orlando area walmart, outlets, restaurants etc info

Important phone numbers,

Places to write down info like room number, photopass numbers etc

The list can go on and on, whatever info you may need for your trip contained in one organized binder of info. My binder has pockets for our tickets, ME info, DVC card, and pockets for glasses wipes and tylenol packets.

I <3 my binder! Good Luck
