Need help finding book for countries in epcot

On one of our trips last ear I saw a kid with a book (not passport) that he was using to get stamps from all of the countries in Epcot. I talked to his mom and she said he was taking it back to show his class at school. I would like to do something similar for my son on our thanksgiving trip because he will be missing 3 days of school. Does anyone know what book this might be? TIA

They sell passports all throughout Epcot usually by the register.

We had the book "Guide to the Magic for kids". It has sections for each park.

In the Epcot section, there were places for stamps and greetings. See if this is it. http://www.guidetothemagic.com/shopping.htm

Those "Guides to the Magic" are awesome!

You all just saved me a lot of work. I was going to make Journals for the kids for this trip, but these look AMAZING, I'm just going to buy them! Thanks so much for the link!

I got my son a Guide To the Magic, and showed his teacher (as he's going to miss school). She's very enthusiastic about him filling in the content for the countries. Between that and the Kidcot stations, your kids should be all set!

what are the suggested ages for these guides? My DD4 can't read, so would she still enjoy them for sticker, autograph and stamping purposes?

there are some incredibly talented folks over on the Creative DISigns board that make Epcot Passports. I printed them out for the kids in October and they were a huge hit! Let me see if I can find the link ...


ETA: found it!

I think that Guide to the Magic for Kids would be great for a 4 yr old. My daughter received one when she was barely 5. I read the descriptions to her. Each evening we talked about our day and I asked her the questions in the journal part (favorite things she did today, where we ate, what the weather was like, stuff like that) and I wrote her answers for her. She still loves to go through that book from time to time and dream about Disney.

I also found some from the Dis before our October trip. Here's the link:

http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r.../Passport%201/

Over on the left there are links to a couple different styles as well. I printed 3 different styles for my 3 kids. Some are a little more detailed so my 9 yr old used those and my younger kids used the others. They really enjoyed getting the stamps and message from the CM. It really encouraged the CM's to talk about their country. We learned a lot. HTH!

Those are great! Thanks! So do you just print them onto cardstock and bind them, or what? Very cool idea

I printed them on hard cardstock and my Dh bound them at work. They were a hit with the kids and the CM's!
