Since I love to scrapbook, I used a lot of Disney themed papers, stickers, etc. Here's what I've got (and feel free to add suggestions!): On the cover, I'm going to customize it by saying something like "Our Year of a Million Dreams 2008". Page 1 is a little letter to them about the book, and how exciting this trip is! Pages 2-3 I wrote down our itinerary for the entire week (including which parks are what days, dining reservations, extra possible activities, etc). Page 4 I found some fun facts about Disney World and wrote them out (gives them something to read on the way down!) Page 5 is titled "I'm all Ears" with a big picture of mouse ears- on this page I listed several disney movie quotes and they had to name which movie it was from (some are considerably harder than others!) Pages 6-7 is full of WDW trivia that I found online. I also listed some prizes they could earn if they answered a certain amount correctly (ie- 1 snack of their choice, a refillable souvenir mug, a $15 gift card, etc) Page 8 is a Road Trip scavenger hunt and I just thought of maybe 30 random things to find on the drive down. Then the next several Pages will be a WDW scavenger hunt (with the help of the book Passporter's Treasure Hunts) and basically just kinda picked out different clues (probably around 150) for each park and resort. I'm also going to have prizes for finding a certain amount of those as well! Then at the end I'm going to have a page of favorites- their fav. park, restaurant, resort, attraction, etc. I also might throw in some blank pages for character autographs too. I want this little book to be something they can keep and look back on for years to come! Any thing else I could add?
LOVE this idea!!! How did it work out? We'll be driving in Mar. from TX, and I want to do this too! It sounds like you put a lot of time into it; I'd better get started now!

Someone asked about laminating, buy clear contact paper it works as well as laminating. just cut and put item on one side and fold over and you trim as needed

thank you so much mickeysaver! I wanted to do some kind of booklet for our group to take home as a souvenir! I'm going to try to keep it small so it will be easy to carry around! You're great!

Wanted to share this Mickey's Road Trip Booklet. We used it for our past two trips, but I'm not finding it on HP's website anymore - good thing I saved a copy in Microsoft Word! I uploaded it to mediafire if you want to download it:

It's super cute!

A cheap tip for ya'll. If you go buy those plastic pocket folders (with prongs) they make a WONDERFUL book to hold all your fun printables. Ive so far got about 30 color pages in there and its working well!
