The Epcot passports I took to Staples and they bound them for me with a clear plastic cover and back - about $2 each for binding if I remember right.

Thanks, I wish I thought of using a photo albums, I used scrapbook paper and stickers for each character. I have to make 2 of them and it has cost me a TON.

This was my first time trying something like this and it wasn’t hard at all. It did take a lot of work and time but it was so very worth it! We got a lot of compliments on the shirts and autograph books from cast members and characters. And best of all my granddaughters loved them!






Can you tell me where the candy wrappers came from and the minnie DISign???

Ack I have been searching this board for 3 mths now, and the list is endless!!

I have our family to plan for, along with my friends family who is going to be there for the last 3 days of our trip (trying to co-ordinate stuff!), then another girls only trip!

I am making journals for all 6 kids,
I have made the letter to let my friends kids know they are going to Disney,
Some tshirt designs, (birthday one for DS and some name fills)

I have so much going on in my head and no clue if we will get them all done!

Oh and we are attempting Tie Dye mickey shirts as well this summer.!

Thank you so much!!

ME Pirate Adventure

Has anyone made their own stuff for a Pirate Welcome in their rooms (like the official ME Pirate Adventure). We've done our own Mickey's Big Welcome in the past, but are staying in the pirate rooms at Caribbean Beachand would love to do a pirate welcome.

I've not done a pirate welcome but I made a pirate bag of goodies for our flight home.

There was Chocolate coins for treasure, pirate stickers, Pencils with skulls on,

You can add an eye patch, a bandana, fake ear-ring and a sword. A skull and cross bones tshirts or a Disney PoC one. The publisher Dk have a Pirate book in their eyewitness series that is educational, that we have at home. Amazon has loads of fun pirate books. There is some great PoC Lego out at the moment too which keeps little people busy when you are back in your room. Pirate balloons to decorate your room. A bedroom door hanger (surrender your booty at the door, or no landlubbers permitted) print and laminate (makes a good souvinerr for home). I've seen basic skulls and cross bones bracelet kits that kids could make up in the room and then they have something to wear at the parks and take home. Skull and crossbones flag for the room wall. Skull and crossbones pillow case. Pirate snap cards or top trumps. (I wish I'd added more to my pirate bag now!)

I Made a pirate passport (more of an activity book). I decorated it with clip art and lovely DISigns from here.

Add a photo of your 'pirate', other passport information: age' name of ship, job on ship, favourite treasure.
Then i added colouring pages, crosswords and wordsearches etc with a pirate theme. I made a pocket for a treasure map and printed out a blank map for DS to decorate himself. I also made pirate pendants from DISigns printede onto paper, laminated and then corded (won't last ages, but they are fun)

Websites for pirate printables to make your own pirate activity book:
http://printables4kids.com/
http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/pirates/printables.htm
http://printables.kaboose.com/pirate-printables.html
http://family.go.com/disney/pkg-disn...s-and-recipes/ (I wanted to make the voodoo doll from this site, but ran out of time- maybe next time!)
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/pirates.php (I Made a few activity books for our trip, ad I really liked the America homeschool stuff that uses lap books, as the activities were engaging to keep DS busy, but they were educational at the same time)

I printed the passport on a5 paper and then added a plastic sheet front and back and spiral binded it all.

In the above picture, does anyone know where I can find the "Sparkle Like a Princess" Design? I know this is an older design because I used it 3 yrs. ago, but I don't remember which DISigner it came from. TIA!

Autograph books, Epcot passports, magnets, and personalized photo that I've since put in a clear acrylic frame


Other items for the girl's bag. Bought mini M&M's in the tube, emptied the candy into a treat bag, and used the empty tube for pressed penny money. Lanyard and glow sticks are from the dollar store.


And the items for my grandson


I plan to post the dinner invitations on the frig each morning


I also plan to decorate the room a little, using a Mickey welcome banner and some Mickey heads (LOVE the Home Depot paint chips ). I had SO much fun making all this stuff!
How did you bind the passports and autograph books? and what are the passports for? and what kind of items did you put in the activity books? Your stuff looks amazing

This is so true. The first year we did shirts and used Amy's Transfers was the year my DS hit his head on the Disney Boat right outside the Contemporary Hotel. He was bleeding pretty bad and it was going all over his Orange Toy Story Shirt that I had made. I thought the blood would never come out and the transfer would be a mess but he still wears that shirt to this day. He likes to make his MeMe feel guilty when he wears it because she was the reason he feel in the first place.

Loving all the ideas that have been posted. We are going again in May 13 and Nov. 13 and I have already started making my list again.
