I promised a while back that I would share how I put together our Disney World planning booklets. We’ve used planning booklets on quite a few trips now. This much planning and detail isn’t necessary for every trip, but here are a few instances they are helpful.
Use Disney World Planning Booklets if:
- You are traveling with a large group
- You are traveling during a busy, crowded season
- You are trying to maximize what you can get done at park opening/rope drop
For this trip, we are hitting all three of the above. We’ll be traveling with 13 people total and we tend to tour as a herd. The biggest reason we stick together, especially in the mornings, is to optimize what we can get done at rope drop. If you hit the rides and attractions in a particular order and get there first thing, you can really avoid a lot of lines.
I use small photo albums from Dollar Tree to make the booklets. I thought about just using our phones for this, but not everyone in our party has a smart phone. And I think it’s simpler to pull out the booklet. Each family unit gets one, which keeps me from having to repeat the same info over and over.
