Disney World binder builder – 100+ free downloads
(Article last updated: April 22, 2016)
No destination is quite as difficult or fun to plan as Disney World. That's why I've always had a planning binder full of info and printables to keep me organized.
Below, I have shown the sections I use for my binder and links to downloads that you can use to create your own.
Let's get started...
The binder I use is something I designed myself and it includes 8 tabs...
The 8 tabs are labeled:
- General Info
- Magic Kingdom
- Hollywood Studios
- Animal Kingdom
- Everything Else
The company that I used to order my binder and tabs is no longer available. However, Disney's Zazzle store also has hundreds of cute binders that can even be personalized (and they cost about 1/4 of what mine cost).
To get a Zazzle binder that feels a lot like mine does, I'd recommend doing these things:
- Order the 2 inch option
- Choose black for the inside color if it coordinates with the design better than white
- Customize it, including uploading an image that can be used on the front cover (FYI: to change the font, click the "f" icon under the font size drop-down box. Took me forever to find it!)
Here are some examples that I created when playing around with their options.
Note: Zazzle won't allow you to use the phrase "Disney World" on your design anymore, but I'd suggest "WDW" along with some other text (such as "WDW trip") as an alternative that they will allow.
Black and red style
How I did it: the red spine and Mickey patterns are part of the style already. I uploaded the front label and back stripe images and then used Zazzle's text tools to add text to the front, spine and back. For the front, this meant having two layers: one for the label and one for the text. Just drag the layers on the Zazzle site to make sure the text lays on top of the label.
Font used on the Zazzle site:
- Front: Folio Bold
- Spine: Folio Medium
- Back: Folio Light Italics

Comic Art Mickey Mouse
How I did it: just took the design already on Zazzle and used Zazzle's text tool to add the text on the front
Font used on the Zazzle site: Futura Medium
Mickey Retro Polka Dot
How I did it: the polka dotted pattern is part of this style already so I uploaded the oval label for the front and used Zazzle's text tool to add two different text layers to the front and 1 to the spine
Fonts used on the Zazzle site:
- Front (the year): Roundhand Bold
- Front (the rest of the text): Sprocket
- Spine: Sprocket

There are literally hundreds of choices of binders. You can see all of the Disney designs in the gallery below...
Note: If items are purchased by clicking on one of the Zazzle links above, Zazzle will send me a referral fee.
Of course, you can pick up a binder wherever office supplies are sold and make your own cover for an inexpensive way to create a personalized one at home.
