Smile Need ideas for trip planning binder

Hi! I am fairly new to this board & already obsessed. So much so that I have decided that I cannot live without making a planner for our trip.

Here is some information about us: We will be going OCT. 3 - OCT 10 with the free dining package and staying at the POP in a preferred room. We will be driving approx. 12 hours from VA in a minivan with myself, DH, DS8, DD6 & DD19mos.

This is our first trip & I would love for it to be a memorable one, but I have no idea where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would love to organize all of our plans into a binder, but I would like help figuring out what those plans are & some page ideas for the planner. That way, when it is finished, it will be sort of like a scrapbook of our trip as well.
I would love to have some personalized pages if anyone has anything like this. I hope I am making sense.

The dimensions of the binders pages inside are approx. 8 x 5 with some of the sections tabbed.

Thanks in advance!

I have to tell you I make my own binder and organize everything I need I find this easier. I also make up index cards for each day with ADR's Phone Numbers etc..

Here are a few pics

Hope that helps a bit. I include everything from Menus to maps to important phone numbers. I usually transferred that info to a small index card.

Have a great trip

OMG- I thought I was the only one who did things in binders with tabs & what not! And my schedule looks almost the same! I do things in different colors - I use the soft portfolio from Staples to hold everything because I find the binders to be too hard to handle.
