You are most welcome! Before we went to Disney World this past July, I spent WAY too much time on the Creative Disign board looking for cool things to make the trip more magical & fun for my nieces & sister who had never been before.

It worked, too. All 3 of my nieces said visiting the kidcot stations was their favorite part of Epcot. Collecting the autographs...they decided it was worth it to make the books after all because they loved showing their books to the CM's. The kids had the hand-made books with all my scrapbooking paper & stickers (many printed from clipart onto sticker paper) while my sister & I used the back-up plan (printed autograph cards from the disigners).

Then, when we got back, my youngest niece decided her party was gonna be a "dress up as your favorite disney character" party so I just HAD to search for the perfect individual invitations, t-shirts (for the adults) and bag toppers, etc... I ended up getting a really cool disign created for me that my niece LOVED.

Anyway, happy I could help.

Love this idea! I am thinking about making one for a change to the ones we have bought at Epcot.
Question though: I see walgreens does have a good option for 4X6 but do they end up being photo paper or more like paper that you can write on? I am worried if it is glossy photo paper it may not work so well for the writing pages.

Glossy Photos

We had glossy & matte finish on our photos in our passpoort. Either way works with a sharpie for signing. However, when they stamp it, tell them to make sure it goes straight down & up. We had 2 CM's that rocked the stamp, which caused it to smear slightly (could still tell what it was though).

@kimba,
I was at Costco earlier and the girl suggested to order them Matte and to use a sharpie when writing on them. She said that is what works best for writing on photos.
I actually have some scrapbooking markers that write on photos that I am planning on taking. But I did do the matte anyways, I have always prefered matte over glossy

Michelle,
Just let them stay open a few moments and wave them in the air abit.. I only had one that lightly smeared and that was because DS got so excited about seeing something he closed the book before I had my hand in between the pages to stop it from closing!

Such a cool idea. Just wondering, is this something only children do/would it seem silly for an adult to get their "passport" signed. I've got lots of (adult) world travellers in my group that would definitely love this type of keepsake.

My husband and I did it with our kids... the kids had a book and we had a book.. we split the countries so we each had interaction with the CMs!

Another Disigners Epcot Passport links(this one has instructions on how to print on cardstock. It is smaller than some of the others but still great.)

Here is a different type of passport/ autograph book for Animal Kingdom

For autograph books, if you don't have time to make your own using scrapbook materials, here is a link to a thread that has a LOT of cards made by different disigners. You can mix & match or just print from your favorite disigners. Just print them out on either cardstock or photo paper. I made both (5 books for 1 trip) and the CM's loved them all.

Another side note, especially for people traveling with kids, on the right hand side of the disigners photobucket pages, you can click to view other albums by them and often it has some other really cool things to print (like activity pages & journals).
These are awesome!!!!!!

depends on the paper - get a sharpie & see if it works some photo paper the sharpie will wipe off - also try a stamp on it & see if it stays

I had mine printed at either Walgreens or Snapfish with different color soft covers for each of my kids. They turned out great!

(Thanks for the link Nan!!)
Since it was printed on photo paper you didnt have any issues with them stamping or writing on it??? Curious before I send to the store

No we had no problem with them stamping on them.. I kept them open for a few extra minutes and fanned them a bit to get them dry... I think only one smeared a bit but that was because it started to rain as I was trying to dry it... but they look great otherwise!!!
