Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

(Updated: September 18, 2014)

Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.comNo 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

The binder I use is something I designed myself and it includes 8 tabs…

Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

The 8 tabs are labeled:

  • General Info
  • Hotel
  • Dining
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Epcot
  • Hollywood Studios
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Everything Else

Although my design used to be available to order through the company where I got it, that’s no longer an option.

However, Disney’s Zazzle store 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.

Black and red style
Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

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

Download the images below:

Comic Art Mickey Mouse
Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

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
Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

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

You can download the label here:

Turquoise oval label
  

 



Mickey and Friends
Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.com

How I did it: I just used the default design and added two text layers to the front using Zazzle’s text tool

Fonts used on the Zazzle site:

  • Front (big text): Impress
  • Front (small text): Futura Medium

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.

Now let’s take a look at what goes into each section…

General Info section

Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.comIn the general info section, I include a map of Walt Disney World as a whole, our trip itinerary, a calendar of the year so I can jot down dates that I need to remember (like making ADRs 180 days in advance) and a chart of which parks are best on each day of our trip.

Although the trip plan should mostly be decided beforehand, it’s nice to stay flexible and make changes as needed (plus, I like to let the kids choose what we do on the last day so that’s a helpful chart to have as a reference).

Dining section

Disney World binder builder   100+ free downloads from WDWPrepSchool.comAfter deciding where we want to eat, I print off menus to store in this section so my family has an idea what to expect at each meal.

I also keep a 1 page worksheet that summarizes all of our dining locations and includes our ADR numbers.

For people using the Disney Dining Plan, having a worksheet to keep track of how your credits are being spent is a good idea too.

Hi there!! This binder is amazing!! I NEED this since I am planning a trip for 10 adults and 4 kids!! Can you tell me how you did your file folders and what images are on each one?

Thanks so much!!!

Love this! but where did you get the dividers?

I designed them on ThePaperWorker.com

First of all, I love your site! Thank you for putting so much time and effort into all you do! Your WDW Binder is such a wonderful idea; I can’t wait to create my own. The page with all the links for the binder has so much information, but I noticed there isn’t a link for the cute Disney themed tab dividers you have pictured. You did such a great job on them that I was hoping to either purchase them or find directions on how to create my own. I am a firm believer in not trying to re-invent the wheel so if you could point me in the right direction with these, I’d greatly appreciate it! Thanks again for all you do to help those of us who are still a little Disney challenged. :-)

Hi Shannon – I just tried to order one of the binders on Zazzle and they cancelled my order because you are not allowed to use “Disney World” as part of the text. Just thought people should know!

Here’s the link to the Customization Guidelines

I would use “WDW” as an alternative. They’ve certainly tightened up their guidelines.

Can you right-click (not left-click) the link and then you can choose to download it from there?

Kudos,

I have a binder as well with all the information listed above (thanks to you Shannon) …I just need to get some dividers.
I would love it if you would share your ideas on what you do AFTER each of your trips – scrapbooking, picture books on-line, etc. That way if there are special ways you organize your photos, memorabilia, etc I can plan before my trip :)

Kelly September 19, 2014 at 9:48 am

Love the new design of this page. A great way to keep the information fresh! And the Zazzle tips are great. I have some referral credit of my own to use & planned on getting a binder. I never realized you could customize them like that. So cool.

Hi Shannon,
I just tried printing the “Ultimate Packing List” and the print view comes up with a mish-mash of letters/numbers. It may just be my computer, but wanted to mention it.

Hello! I tried to look to see if this has been answered before I asked. I do notice that a lot of great information is for 2013. Is this because not much has changed for 2014? My family and I are going in October and I absolutely love all of your information.

Reply

Samantha June 1, 2014 at 1:11 am

I looked to see if you have gotten this question before and didn’t see it. How big is your binder? I am really interested in one, but don’t want to lug around a big school binder, and if it is the size of a regular binder is there an option for a smaller day planner size? Thank you so much!!

i know its too early but I’m just wondering if you will eventually post 2015 updates when its available.

Just wanted to share how much I am enjoying your website! I have been to Disney World 25+ times…. (I lost count) but at WDW, there is always something new, something changing, and tips I forget. What a great resource – you are doing a great job with your website!
Thanks,

Did you make the binder yourself? Like the front and the actual binder (not the tabs)? Because I am interested in making a binder with the same design but for school. so if you could let me know that would be great. thanks :)

Hi there! I just stumbled onto your website while looking for clever things to do in Disney and let me just tell you that I love it! I’m very organized myself (planning the whole trip for me and my friend) and I’m OBSESSED with this organization!! However, I do have a couple of questions. 1) Do you remake this binder every time you go on a trip? If not, when do you update all of the information? 2) I probably won’t be able to go on many long trips, mostly 2 night 2 day park visits due to my few days of vacation at my job. I live in GA though so its an easy flight. How do you think would be the best way to organize this binder so that I can make it a multi-trip/annual disney info binder? 3) Do you have any other suggestions to keep myself organized?

Reply

Heather July 16, 2013 at 2:26 pm

also where did you find the images for the tabs? Did you just make them in photoshop?

Marcy Kay June 28, 2013 at 7:22 am

Shannon, your binder and dividers are absolutely amazing! I’m a bit envious! If someone wasn’t as creative (like me) or wanted to save a little money on a binder, I just bought an adorable Tinkerbell binder on sale at Target for $2.00. I’m thinking about just designing my own tabs to insert as dividers. Your maps and other downloads are beyond helpful. Thank you for all you do!

You are awesome & since I would never be able to do one myself I just might have to order yours! Question, do you bring out your whole binder to each park? When I went in May I just had a folder w/each days itinerary. Thanks!!!!!

Hi Shannon!
I have been surfing your website for days now planning our upcoming trip in April. I LOVE your binder layout and you make it all so easy to recreate! I was just wondering where you have your printing done for some of the items (i.e. maps) that have a lot of color and detail. Thanks for all of your hard work on this site, it has been incredibly helpful.

This is AMAZING!!! I am completely overwhelmed, but I hope the more I look at your site and study some of the things, I will understand a little better. Trying to plan our first Disney trip this summer :) I see that you have updated most of the stuff for 2013…do you know where can i find park hours for 2013?

All of the park hours are listed above in the General Info section. Park hours appear at those links before they appear on Disney’s main site.

Did you design your binder as a “binder” or as a “scrapbook” in order to get the 12×12 size? What do you find as a benefit of having a larger sized binder?

It’s a binder, not a scrapbook (I got it from an office supply place). I like the larger binder to fit all of the various info that I have. Many people have smaller binders and that seems to work for them.

I am making one thanks to this awesome idea!! I made dividers, similar to yours, but in princess colors since we are planning the trip around my 5 year old DD and her LOVE for all things Disney Princess. I’ve been working on it for at least 3 weeks and I have lots more to do, but you are AMAZING – for making this, sharing this, and encouraging others to do so as well! Thanks a million!!

Yes! I saw that post – thank you! I also just created my own autograph book for our trip, if you’d like to check it out I posted it here: http://www.itsamueggelife.com/2013/04/disney-custom-autograph-books.html

Your blog has given me SO much inspiration! Thank you a million.

Shannon,
What a pretty binder….just curious — is this a mini binder or is it a regular size binder that holds 8 1/2 x 11 sheets?

Reply

Shannon Albert January 22, 2013 at 2:20 pm

It’s a large binder – nearly 12 x 12.

I found the pin on Pinterest and also commented. I would LOVE to have a binder like this but am not sure I could do such a wonderful job if I designed it myself. Please let us know if they make the exception!

Just wanted to say that, on the topic of the Toy Story
Midway Mania game, there is a tip that I know. In Sept. 2012, my
dad and I found out that when you’re on the final round with the
two targets, you get more points alot faster if you both shoot at
the same target.

Good to know! I’l give it a try in a couple weeks.

I think I just died and went to Disney heaven. What a
lovely binder and a great idea to keep everything organised. I
create an itenerary binder for each of my trips but never something
like this printed (as I have it all in iBooks on my ipad) but this
is lovely to keep. I’m currently planning my 3 week trip for
sept/oct 2013 and finding all these fab websites such as yours to
help. :-)

Glad you like the site! I’m a gadget freak, but there’s something about having it printed and organized in front of me that makes me happy (especially if a cute binder is involved :D).

Me too! I love being able to see it and flip through the pages, haha! I had our honeymoon organized into a binder…not a super cute one, but a binder. It helped a lot, but so many people looked at me like I was odd. Not sure why! But this was Germany so who knows, lol. Better safe than sorry, and organized is definitely safe!

I am so happy I found this though, I was already typing up things to print out but this makes it so much easier! Especially maps and schedules. Thanks!!

Shannon – just wondering where you would include your flight info – just booked our flights today! :) I was thinking of putting it in general info, but it would kind of fit in Everything Else, along with the airport map? I guess it really does not matter, but looking to stay as organized as possible. Next step, booking our resort, probably in the next couple of weeks! :) The binder is starting to fill up! :)

Yea for flights being booked! I’d put that info in the General Info section personally, but obviously you can arrange it however it makes sense for you.
