Wow, what a great idea! We are taking my nephew next summer and I think he will love this!! We bought my daughter a hat and had the character sign it and she still has it, she now 13.

My daughter is 13 years old and wanted some different than a autograph book. I painted a Mickey head and my daughters name on a pillowcase and had the characters to sign it.

just returned from staples. 8.00 about 15 minutes and it's awesome! Well worth it. Laminated front and back covers spiral bound.

At Staples did they cut the binding off it before they spiral bound it?

Question: If I am making my own autograph book, would they still spiral bind it?

I am in the process of making a special Christmas edition for my Dec 2012 trip and have been wondering where and how to get it bound for ease while at Disney.

Thank you sooo much for this info! I am a papercrafter and made super nice autograph books for my twin sons when we last visited 3 yrs ago. I just ordered two and hope they are here by the time we are ready to go. I will definitely have them laminated and spiral bound for ease. Super idea!!!
Stay well,
AnnMarie

Your local office supply store, such as Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot, should be able to provide spiral binding services. I created autograph books for our April 2009 trip and had them bound at Staples.

My mom bought my DD4 that book, and each night, she is going to read about a couple of characters to her. What a great idea to make it an autograph book. Is it pretty big to haul around?

How long does it take them to bind a book. We leave in 10 days, and I have everything printed out, I just don't have it bound yet.

Just returned and wanted to provide an update on the book. It worked out great! It wasn't too big to lug, just threw it in my bag which hung on the stroller, along with the kitchen sink

My daughter loved looking at the pages while in the lines. The characters got a kick out of it too. ElastaGirl & Mr. Incredible signed their pages and then held up the line actullay leafing through the pages. I was like, we love your antics, but I've had a 33lb 2yo on my hip for the past half hour waiting for you, can we move this along (I almost told them where to buy one).

We didn't get many autographs cause spoiled 7yo didn't want to wait in line. She was the queen of the fastpass this trip (her first strollerless trip to the World). We didn't even see Mickey, who does that?!! What I decided was to keep the book handy and we'll just add autographs each trip we take.

To those who have purchased, I am curious about size.
Typically the bag I carry to the parks is a miniature backpack; it could not hold a full size spiral notebook, for instance. Is this book large?
