Just starting to make mine. Thanks for all the good ideas. I'll keep going through the other pages for ideas.

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!
I love your planner!! I am staring my own soon and your pictures gave me some great ideas. You mentioned that you changed the paper size to half...did you then have to cut each page in half to fit or were you able to buy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 size paper to print on?

Thank you!!

I don't think anyone posted a link, but many found things over at the Creative DISigns board. I've looked at some of the things they've come up with and they are extremely talented.

SteelerCountry - I think most people who are using them have been several times. Most don't take the whole thing to the parks, they leave them in the room. But it's a way to keep everything together while planning, be organized and creative and it can be used as a scrapbook of sorts. Many have said they look back at previous planners later for info or just a nice trip down memory lane.


We're going next year and while I usually keep things together in a file folder or notebook while planning, I've never gotten as creative as all of you.

Thanks to everyone who has posted their planners, suggestions and information. You have all done an amazing job! I enjoy looking at them and just might have to DIS mine up for this next trip. I've already scribbled various ideas/notes for the trip in a notebook.

I forget who had the Packing List in theirs, but that is exactly what I planned to do! I always look at old packing lists (in a notepad) when creating a new one.

Another thing I intend to add is a Packing List for the return trip home! After leaving my baby's favorite little blankie at a hotel (and not realizing it in time) I decided I needed a list of important things (chargers, cameras, cell phones, favorite blankies) to check off before leaving the hotel room on any trip.

Wow! This is such an inspiring thread. Last time I went I just had pages of info in a duotang folder but now that I've seen this I am going to get an old Franklin Covey small zippered binder and use that as my stay in the room binder and I like the idea of just taking out the bits I need for each day. Thanks everyone for all the excellent ideas and pictures!

Lots of good ideas in this thread. We made a Disney planning binder last year for our trip and it worked out perfectly having everything organized and all in one spot. I will definitely be adopted some of the ideas shared here and will use them towards the planning binder for our trip in October. I will be sure to take pictures of it as a work in progress and also when it is completed!

I would put my WDW and US planning in the same binder. But I just got an idea. Does anyone put their planning onto their smartphone? Most of the info could probably go onto there and the souvenirs and autographs etc could go into a binder?

I started my binder a few months ago, but since my trip isn't until next year, it kind of fell on the back burner. Now I have (hopefully) two more trips planned in between that...so I guess its time to fire it up again! Ill post pictures once I make more progress.

Today, I decided I wanted to go solo, so I think im going to take advantage of the AP room discounts and go down at the end of September! That will need a lot of planning as its two months away...so im ready to kick it into high gear!

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.

I am in the preplanning stages of our June 2013 trip. For some odd reason I can not find my old Passporter to obsesse over and until the new ones come out. Then I stumbled on to this thread and oh my.... after a 15~20 minute search through the house, I came up with these items to start my own. Thanks for the great thread!

I just ordered a Binder from Disneystore.com and had our family name printed on it.
It looks GREAT!

I bought the plastic see-thru pockets to put things I print into and dividers at the dollar store.

Many wonderful ideas and books on this thread!!
