Deluxe edition -- we used to bring the relevant pages to the park with us each day and tucked them into a gallon ziplock bag. With my Kindle Fire, though, I can bring the entire book with me every day!

I downloaded the e-version (in PDF form) and it works great!

I'm not planning on taking ours to the parks with us. I'm only carrying a small backpack, and there's no room for it with all the other things I need to carry with me. But I do plan on bringing it with us and keeping it in the hotel room.

We use it at home and sometimes carry it there but leave it in our room. We try to carry as little as possible in the parks.

We carry it with us everywhere on our vacation. We always make little notes in ours, so we have it for future reference and we don't want to forget anything we learned or whatever throghout the day.

I take my deluxe with me to our hotel and when we head to the parks I pull out the page for that day and leave the rest behind...I refer to the rest of the book on our afternoon breaks, early morning over breakfast and at night before sleep..

I don't carry it with me either, but I do check with it the morning before we leave and that evening. Even though I basically have it memorized.

I do bring my Passporter into the parks with us. I like having all the resources it offers close at hand. I'll review notes I've written myself on each days' Passpocket, jot down names of cast members who provide exceptional service, make note of meal entrees and everyone's opinion on restaurants, attractions etc. I also like to record our memories of each day as we go along. And I've even shared Passporter attraction & restaurant reviews with fellow travelers. I've also given folks the number to lost & found, shared info on tours etc. It's a font of useful information and I've really missed it on days I chose to leave it back at the room!

I'll be taking ours on our trip but am leaning towards leaving it at the motel except for each day's pocket. I may tear the pockets out of an old extra one to use so the new ones don't get messed up.

we take ours with us everywhere at WDW! It holds our ADRs places and times, what we shouldn't miss each day, EMH for each parks, helps us decide on a quick lunch or snack and where each one is located, etc. It has SO much information, and we have a good excuse to sit a bit and look through our book. LOVE IT!! Can't live without it!

Did you buy off of this website? ( I dunno how to access it if you bought it somewhere else like I did but, you can prob find it) download the digital version! After that (if you have an iphone) transfer it to that. You bring it with you anyway (I assume) so your phone will be the lightest way! Hope this helps!

I ordered our book from Passporter. I downloaded the ebook version to my Kindle FIre and MAY take that along as well as it has apps for times and wait times for all the parks....and some games to keep us entertained IF we need. Although I doubt we'll have that much 'down' time!!

I am planning to order my 1st Passporter as soon as I find out the 35 percent discount code. I have had other books in the past, and only took them along when we had a stroller. Once the kids outgrew the stroller, I made photocopies of important pages (shrunk smaller and on thick card stock-1 per park) and kept that in a ziplock bag in my pocket or purse.
