Share your Excel spreadsheet?

Hi all! I am brand new to this board and we're leaving in only 8 days!
I was reading some wonderful tips from everyone and I started trying to make my own excel spreadsheet. I'd love to laminate it onto a 5x7 index card!
Would anyone consider emailing me their old ones so I can customize them? I kinda stink at this and I only have naptime to get it all accomplished. Thank you SO much!

Welcome to the Dis!! I can send you a planner that I got from a fellow Dis member - I changed it to fit my families needs. Just post your email and I will send it to you! Have a magical trip!

I'll send you mine also.

Just post your e-mail. I'm not sure what other people's look like but I'm an amatuer disney planner and an expert excel formatter so I have a pretty cool sheet that I've been refining for a couple of years now.

I'll share mine with whom ever wants it but be forewarned. . . I do not believe in great detailed planning because I would never be able to stick to it. My plans involve where will I go on what day and what will I eat. As far as what attractions to FP what shows to see and what rides to hit at ropedrop . . . I kind of keep that in my head and just go with common sense to beat the crowds. Works great for me, but another spreadsheet will be needed for detailed planning.

I will share my planner with anyone who wants it, but mine is not that detailed either. I just plan what park I'm going to on what day and where I'm going to eat. I do not plan out what attraction I'm going to at a certain time. Hope it helps everyone and have magical trips!

I sent it.

the other thing is you may have to do a good bit of altering to mine. The reason being I'm a 28 year old male with a GF traveling with. No kids to pack and plan for. . . You can always just insert lines on the packing list if need be.

I have one with DDP info (savings/tax/tip calculations) room reservation data, a second page with our park itineraries info on it, color coded with ADR info and with some DISsigners art for extra fun. I used a different color for each day and marked meal and pool/free time with other colors. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll e-mail tomorrow (they're on my work computer). BTW - the itineraries are customized and geared for 6,9 and 13 yo boys.

The park itineraries don't fit onto a 5x7 index card, but I made one for each day and could fit three days on a sheet of laminate. I cut out each day, matched up and put the pictures on the backside of each itinerary and then laminated the pages together. I used four sheets of 9x12 peel and stick laminate that I got at staples to put them together.
