100+ free downloads for your Disney World binder

(Article last updated: December 30, 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 Disney World binder and links to downloads that you can use to create your own.

Let's get started...

My Disney World binder

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

The 8 tabs are labeled:

  • General Info
  • Hotel
  • Dining
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Epcot
  • 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 Disney World 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!)

Expand the area below to see 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

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
Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 11.56.40 PM Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 11.56.57 PM

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 by right-clicking and choosing "save image as":


Turquoise oval label

Mickey and Friends
Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 12.15.58 AM Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 12.16.20 AM

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.

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.

Creating a digital Disney World binder

Want a digital binder instead of (or in addition to) to a physical binder? You can use Evernote to do that.

Watch the video for details.

Take a look at each section for ideas on what to put in your Disney World binder...

General Info Downloads

tab1generalinfoIn 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).

Magic Kingdom section

tab4mkIn the Magic Kingdom section, I keep a park map, touring plans and recommended viewing spots. I also like to keep a list of recommended Quick Service dining locations so I know where to head when it's time to eat.

My custom park maps (linked below) include all of that info on 1 map that prints out on 1 piece of paper.

Dining section

tab3diningAfter 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.
