These books are fantastic! It really helps the kids learn about some more Miscellaneous characters you may find in the parks that they aren't so familiar with. And it helps facilitate interaction with the character! And they are nice enough to display proudly in your home instead of putting it in a drawer and forgetting about it.

I am not sure how to share it on here. It was sent to me in a private message from marneb on the creative DISigns board. If you find her post on there I am sure she would send it to you. She does awesome designs!!

I am telling you...this autograph book was the highlight of our trip! I am SO glad I found this thread! The characters really love this book! Stitch took it and tried to run away with it. And then he stuck his tongue out at the CM when he told him no. Prince Naveen wanted to take it and put it in their resturant! lol My daughter had so much fun with it! When we were meeting Belle, the Photopass Phtographer was so interested in it, I had to ask him to take pictures! I could go on and on....it created so many magical moments!! And I didnt find it heavy or hard to manage. I recommend this to everyone I know!!

FWIW, I just took my book to Staples yesterday to have it coil bound and the covers laminated. It cost a little less than $9.00! It looks GREAT, but it has some "heft" to it. I will have to upgrade to the backpack rather than the smaller crossbody bag if I want to take it in the parks... *sigh* The things mothers do for their children!

Well worth it!! I bought Sharpie markers in a few different colors...red,black and silver. Then when we were inline we looked at the characters page and decided which color would look best. We used silver for most of the princesses. You are going to have so much fun with it!!!

You aren't kidding. That is the compromise you make for such an awesome autograph book.

I carried two around, one for each child. I also recommend putting them in a gallon sized plastic zip-lock bag, to shield them from inclement weather.

I am planning a trip and I am going to do a spin on these for our autograph books. I am going to make 5x7 books for each kid ( I have 3) and then have them coiled bound. When we get home I will add the 5X7 pages to this book which I will have already had coiled bound at the same place I had our 5x7 ones bound at (so the coil spacing will match).

For those of you that have coil bound them, how do you feel they held up with the binding? I know in the past when I have had things bound they seem to tear away easily. I just got ours out of the mailbox today!!! I love the idea of adding new pages and will be using some found on here and cant wait to hopefully see more! TIA for any answers.

Mine has held up great so far, even after 8 days of being drug around Disney! I would recommend buying some of the 2 gallon sized ziplocs and keeping it in there. The gallon sized are a stretch for a fit. We kept the Sharpie markers right in the bag and so we just pulled it out when it was time to use it.
You are going to have so much fun with it! I cant rave enough about this book! We had done the little books with plain pages before and there is just no comparison between these books! It was way beyond my expectations!!

So have ours! We used ours back in dec 2010 and to this day the only page that has come out was mickey mouse in our then 2 year olds book. (go figure!) We were very happy we did this! Now they just need to come out with a new edition!

Thank you so much! I was very pleased when I received it! And thank you for the info on the bags. I will be sure to do that.

I called Office Depot and Kinkos for a price to get mine coil bound. Office Depot is cheaper, but they said that since they can only punch the holes in 19 pages at a time all the pages might not line up. Has anyone had this problem?? Also, has anyone made any more pages? I have no idea how to do it, or I would be happy to! I would like to get one of Phineas and Ferb with Perry on it. Thanks!
