This has probably already been mentioned in this thread...but travel planners are a wonderful way to organize your travels and days at the parks. Here are some threads that I have run across that have pictures of planners, pages that you can use, artwork for dividers, etc.

Dolly! Thank you for reminding me about the gift basket idea! I totally forgot I wanted to do that! You can spend hundreds of dollars on the premade ones that are delivered for you, so I feel like I can spend a little on this and it still won't be as bad. Oh, I so didn't need one more thing to do today, but I think I will start on this!

A little candy pocket with Tylenol


goddie bag w/dollar tree stuff and a homade lable on the hand sanitizer


T-day candy pockets for little mints


just thought some pics of things would be fun to see!

Thanks for posting pics! It is always great to see what others are making. I especially love how you took my aspirin idea and made it a reality!!! Too cute! The saying is perfect!

I loved them so much I made a pouch and tent for aspirin. You can find them in my 4shared file in the link in my signature. Then look in the "Candy Wrappers" file and "Miscellaneous Wrappers"

I just used word on my computer and copy and pasted clipart from
http://disney-clipart.com/Disney-Character-Clipart.php
and added text.
I measured the size of the lable already on the hand sanitizer and just adjusted the pasted art and txt accordingly, printed on whtie paper, trimmed to fit and taped over it with clear packing tape.
Hope that helps

jkuglin decided that she would recreate "Mickey's Grand Welcome"
here is her original thread with more ideas and PICTURES!:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2342599

TO GET YOU STARTED:
Here is a link to the original which is $300.00. You can also click on the tabs to get ideas for Birthday room surprises and wedding/anniversary room surprises:
http://www.ftdfloristsonline.com/wal...lcomes/display

I think you can recreate this for $25-100...depending on what you buy/make. This is what it says online that they do:
Mickey Mouse heard you were coming and so he slipped into your room to leave a special surprise! As soon as you step into your room, you see his footprints leading the way to the bed where a 15" Mickey and Minnie plush pair, a personalized blanket, and a Mickey Mouse-themed welcome package wait for you. Up high, a celebrate banner hangs from the wall. Plus, there's also a colorful Mickey & Friends jumbo balloon waiting in the room. (Please note: Guests of Disney's Animal Kingdom will receive a canvas Disney tote in place of the balloon bouquet, for the protection of the animals.) And look! There’s even a Welcome krispie treat arrangement in a popcorn tin set on the table, along with a personalized welcome note in a Disney character frame and an autograph book signed by Mickey Mouse himself! And, if you take a peek around, you’ll find Tinker Bell’s shadow; she’s come to sprinkle Pixie Dust on you! All of this is not only there for you to enjoy – every piece is meant for you to take home!

Welcome Gift Box
• Inside the large, Mickey Mouse-themed gift box on the bed, several goodies await.
• A pair of Mickey Mouse mitts holds a special “Hidden Mickey” book so you and your group can enjoy a secret hunt around the Disney theme parks.
• Mickey Mouse has also left behind a photo album so that you have a place to keep snapshots of your treasured moments together.


Here are some other "ideas" for a spin on a "welcome gift":

Create a Fairy Tale – Step into a fairytale and surprise your Princess with a glass slipper and tiara.

Enchanting – By royal decree, you proclaim your darling a real-life Princess and leave her a princess outfit with tiara and slippers. Or for a son, you can leave a pirate outfit or another Disney costume from a character that he loves. Make it something that will fit and double as a halloween costume so that you can get some use out of it!

Here are a few things to get you started:
[B]jkuglin found this disney banner that Disney will allow you to download for free from their website. You will be downloading a PDF and you will need to highlight the letter on the flag and change it to the letter you want to print. There are two styles of flags and you can use them to spell out your child's name or your family name and then hang it on the wall of your hotel:
http://tv.disney.go.com/playhouse/gr...mch/index.html

I also made a "happy birthday" and "welcome" banner and you can find them along with gift tags from Mickey and all of his gang along with balloons and a lot of other things in my 4shared file in the link in my signature then look in the "mickey grand welcome" file.

Mickey Footprint...You will need to make several of these. Then trim them out and place them to look like Mickey walking into the room. You might consider laminating them so that they won't get ruined on your trip to the World:



To save on ink...here is one that you can print on yellow cardstock and then trim out. This uses very little ink!!!


Tink's Shadow...You could trim this out, tape it on the wall, put some gifts below it and sprinkle fairy dust on the gifts. Hobby Lobby has glitter in the arts and crafts section that is actually called fairy dust. It has round glitter and stars. Also, you might consider laminating the Tink Shadow so that the wand doesn't get bent on the trip to Disney. Or even better...you could put this on a window cling and adhere it to the window in your room!:



Here is a note from Mickey that you can stick in a picture frame and put it beside the bed, or with the box/bag/basket. I left space for you to insert a textbox with either your child(ren)'s name(s) or your family name. Mickey would say "Gosh Smith Family,":



Here is a letter if it is a birthday surprise:



Here is an oversized gift tag if someone can use it for their surprise. I used Natalie's scrapbook paper for the background...but changed the coloring:



Now...if you can make an autograph book without your kids seeing...you can add that to the box. Then grab a bunch of Disney things fromt the dollar stores...Dollar Tree has a TON of Disney things and everything is $1.00! Add a t-shirt or two that you made and a pillowcase cover!

Here is what Disney does for the "Birthday Surprise", but you could use these ideas for a welcome as well by leaving each of these gifts or a similar gift from each character:

Imagine stepping into your resort room and discovering that Mickey Mouse and the gang have left you a personalized Birthday Surprise! All around the room, large, colorful packages have your name on them; themed to Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto, these presents create a festive environment! On the wall hangs a bright Birthday Banner and there's also a colorful Mickey singing balloon awaiting the birthday recipient. (Please note: Guests of Disney's Animal Kingdom will receive a canvas Disney tote in place of the balloon, for the protection of the animals.) There’s even an Autograph Book on the table, signed to you by Mickey Mouse himself. And if you take a peek around, you’ll find Tinker Bell's shadow; she’s come by to sprinkle Pixie Dust on you! All of this is not only there for you to enjoy – every piece is meant for you to take home!

Mickey Mouse's Birthday Present
• This 15” box sits on the bed with a large, 15-inch Mickey Mouse plush beside it. Around his neck is a Light-Up Lanyard for the Birthday person to wear. It says, “It's My Birthday!”
• Mickey Mouse Ears embroidered with the Birthday person’s name.
• Mickey Mouse and the Gang Picture Frame which includes a personalized message from Mickey Mouse.

Minnie Mouse's Birthday Present
• Minnie Mouse's pretty package sits on the table waiting for you.
• Open the lid and find a smaller golden box nestled inside – inside that is a decorative, chocolate, Candy “Cake” that Minnie Mouse has made just for you!

Donald Duck's Birthday Present
• This box sits on the other bed and is full of Donald Duck's gifts just for you.
• Donald's choices are "quacky" and lots of fun!
• And, to top it off, you'll know Donald was there by the white feathers he left behind!

Goofy's Birthday Present
• Inside Goofy's box is the resort room phone; if you call the number on the card attached, you’ll hear Goofy sing his Birthday wish to you!
• The gifts in his box include sweet keepsakes of "Goofy" memories!

Pluto's Birthday Present
• Pluto's a puppy who’s taken care of this party’s hunger!
• Inside his box are delightful treats specially chosen by Pluto himself including dog-bone-shaped Krispy bars for "people" placed in an adorable dog bowl, and set on a Pluto placemat!
• Pluto is big on dog collars, so he thought a nice surprise would also be a "human collar" (a Disney lanyard that includes a starter pin set!)

Each box is the character's colors and has a small toy hanging off the ribbon. So Mickey's box is red with a yellow top and a black bow. Donald's is blue with a white top a yellow bow. Goofy's is a black box with a blue top and an orange bow. Minnie's is a red box with black top and a red and white polka dot bow. You get the idea...

Here is a picture that I found of the gifts...and there are a few more on this thread:

Here is another idea of something to make...invitations have already been discussed but you could make "coupons" for things like one treat at Goofy's Candy Co. or if you are traveling with other adults...give them a coupon for a free coffee in your hotel. Here are some examples of coupons that I made:

Unfortunately that DISigner is no longer on the Boards and her 4shared file was recently closed. Here is a thread for her nugget wrappers that are similar and super cute:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....ghlight=nugget

Some of them are gone as I think they were linked to her 4shared file but there are still several throughout the thread. Hope that helps!

I have several of the chewing gum wrappers downloaded but have not mastered posting pics on the board yet. If you want to send me a message or post your email address I will be happy to email them to you. Also, let me know which characters you are interested in. Becky

Unfortunately, you can not post pictures directly to the Boards from your computer. Here is what you can do to post DISigns or show off your great t-shirts and items that you made as a way to thank the DISigners who made them:

• Get a free photobucket account at www.photobucket.com.
• Then upload your pictures to there.
• Once they are uploaded click on the "share" button just above the picture.
• Then click on the "get link code" button.
• Finally, click once on the IMG code then right click to copy and paste it into this thread.
• Then your pictures will show up when you want to post them.
