2 custom Disney World itinerary templates

Parents spend a lot of time planning their family's Disney World trips and hopefully eventually arrive at a plan for their vacation. If your kids are like mine, they want to know what to expect during their trip.

I've designed two templates to help you do that in a fun way.

Here's how you use them.

There are two different options available:

GIMP format

GIMP is free software that does almost everything that Photoshop does but without the $700 price tag. You can download it from GIMP.org.

Like Photoshop, GIMP works in layers so every element of the image can be edited or deleted plus you can add new layers to customize the graphic for your trip.

Here's how this template looks:

Microsoft Word format

I also created a Microsoft Word itinerary that should be easy to use.

Some tips:

  • When pasting your own image into this file, right-click it, choose Format Picture, go to the Layout tab and pick "In front of text" as your option. This will allow you to move images around as needed.
  • There are many shapes used and each can be changed to a new shape, filled with a new color and have the border customized.
  • If you print this file and want the background color to show up, you'll need to go into the printer options and check the box that says "print background colors and images."
  • Fonts used in this file: Gill Sans Ultra Bold, Gill Sans MT, Walt Disney Script v4.1, Calibri and Tw Cen MT Condensed Extra Bold.

Does anyone know how to make your own pictures round? That may be a dumb question, but I cropped them down small enough, and I can’t figure out how to change the shape! Thanks!


The word template was awesome, thank you so much! The kids will be very excited!

Could you possibly send it to my email!!! I love this template idea and think this would be a great thing to show my daughter before going to Disney for the first time! My computer isn’t letting me download the first one, and the second one wont let me change anything!


Hello! I installed gimp… its up and running but when I click on the download link above it takes me to a page of coding…… in another window…. Any help would be appreciated!

The word version downloaded just fine.

Thank you in advance!


Love the template! I’m clueless, though, how to use fonts that aren’t already on my computer…I downloaded the font….what’s next? 🙂


Thank-you soooo much for sharing! I made this for my husband surprise birthday and I received so many compliments. This template was on point! Very easy to copy and paste pictures and you did very well with instructions. Thanks again!

Thank you for sharing!


Thank you for sharing your wonderful templates. However I am having trouble opening either one of them. I have tried to right click and save to my computer but it will still not open the GIMP file. Also when I save the word document it will not allow me to edit.
Any suggestions?
Thanks again for your helpful tips!

Hi Shannon, it there anyway you could send me a blank doc of the first template so I can just start from scratch and create my own document. I have tried to pull the doc up in word and in google docs but nothing has worked.


This is wonerful- thanks for sharing!!! Do you know how we can add our own pictures for the cast of characters section? Everything else I have figured out and I LOVE it!!!


I love the MS Word template because it is so easy to use. I have added my own twist by having a page for each day, so that I can include every detail from rides, parades, to where we will have meals. Thank you so much!


We will need 8 days, and i am trying to add the last day and having trouble with moving into the next page. Any tips??


Could we have the background image you used?


Do you have the adorable template above in Photoshop? I am a long time Photoshop user and am just feeling baffled by the unfamiliarity of GIMP. I tried to export but I am only getting a third of it in the new .psd file. Thanks for your great planning resources.


thank you for the fantastic template!!!!
