To everyone thank you!! The last time I brought my sister to Disney I literally spent months photoshoping together a custom autograph book and spent about $100 to publish my creation
This is really a life saver. I am taking DH to WDW in the November and since he is not from the US he doesn't know any of the Disney characters aside from Mickey Mouse. This is a great purchase to get him to learn about the characters, work on his English reading comprehension and have fun collecting autographs with me. Plus, now I've got a buddy to stand in line with!

This is an awesome idea! I have a question...do you laminate just the covers or each page?? And if each page, then you do this before?

Okay, so I got the link, but still don't see where the book is? I get to the ABC distributors home page. What is the name of the book?

If you look back on either page 1 or 2 of this thread, there are pictures of it. And further in the thread there are some pictures of pages you can copy to add.

They should be sized ok to fit the book, you'll just need to cut them out once they're printed since the book is a bit smaller than 8.5x11. Hope you can use them! I've got Phineas & Ferb, Jake, Rapunzel and Tiana & Naveen.

Kudos to you for preparing these pages! They look great!

Do you get every page laminated or just the Front and Back covers?

Magpomom, how did you design them and what did you use (photoshop, etc.)? I will be getting these for my girls and have a whole list of characters I want to make sure are in the book. I DO NOT want to pester someone or ask someone else to create them for me, but I need a little help Where did you find the images and where did you find the fonts? TIA!!!!!

does anyone know if there's plans to release an updated version of this book anytime soon? Because I loved the idea until I realised Rapnuzel wasn't included, and i'm planning on getting her autograph. I considered adding my own pages and love the designs i've seen on here but there isn't a store close to where I live that would bind them for me

We did the book everyone is talking about it is the Encyclopedia of Disney characters I think. One for DS and one DD. My daughter took it with us every year for years. Yes, it is a pain in the butt to carry around. It gets cumbersome. The version we have does not have any new people I think I stops around toy story nemo years. It was great to have her find the pages to sign. If they were not in the book they signed the front and back cover pages. If it was their movie they signed near the other characters from the movie. Most of the characters loved it. My daughter 12 still loves it and is planning on taking it again..I on the other hand said you want it you lug it around. Even in a back pack it is flat and hard on your back all day. (My DD is a commando Disney tourist.) It is both good and bad. I like the moms idea of making her own as some of the characters are so dated you hardly see them ie the white cat from aristrocrats. We finally saw her last year. PS dont have the characters sign more than once as their autograph can vary http://www.disboards.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

I made mine done and ready to go! I copied a few ages from here for Rapunzel and Tiana and then someone one the creative boards made me a page with the castle faded in the background and I had a few of those added at the end for people who arent in the book. My daughter is so excited to take it!! We werent going to do autographs but after I saw this we decided we are
