Deluxe! I like the cover, the extra pockets, pen holder, it just makes it all seem official when I pull out my deluxe. I am waiting to pull it out again! The little birdie (that's me) has been telling him it time for another trip. AP is burning a hole in my pocket!
I'm late to the discussion, I know, but I love my Deluxe. It's been with me to the World twice (followed by a DCL cruise each time). I especially like only having to carry those pages in it that I am actually using, like the park maps and my resort info. Plus, it gives me a great writing surface for my voluminous note-taking (the better to have detailed trip reports!!).
I bought a spiral for my friend. After I looked thru it I decided I wanted one. I ordered the deluxe. I have taken some pages out and put other pages in. Having never been toWDW not sure what to take and what to leave. Next year when we go to DL will purchase a PassPorter. One of my better purchases.
I have been torn the last couple of days as to whether I should up grade to the deluxe and spend the extra money. Well after reading this I am going to go order it now. The deciding factor; knowing I will be using it in the future and can just buy the refills verses a new book each time, economically it just made since. Now I am really excited because I can't wait to get it.
Even though I have been a member of the Passporter message boards for a few years, I never actually owned a Passporter until last year. I bought the spiral bound at Waldenbooks about a month before our trip. When I realized how much use I got out of it in just 1 month of planning, I bought the deluxe version when we came back home. I really like the ability to remove the pockets and specific pages for each day and take them with you to the park versus bringing the entire book. I also love the extra holders in the front and back of the leather cover in the deluxe binder.
I love the Deluxe. We've owned a few, given a few as gifts too. Deluxe is so convenient to add things to, to take out the pocket pages and stick in my backpack for the day. I like to keep my travel club membership cards in the pockets inside the front cover between trips. Car rental documents go nicely in the back inside pocket. It is easy to carry, nothing falls out when you've got it snapped shut.
Even though I bought the 2007 in spiral, I went ahead and purchased the Deluxe! What took me so long??? I love the Deluxe! Adding or taking pages out without having to rip them out. Awesome job PP team!!
I've have the deluxe for several years now and I recommend it to everyone I meet. The fact that you can customize it to each specific trip is awesome! Also, I've reworked some of those clear zip pouchs to hold odds & ends like tickets, ID's, receipts with security that nothing will fall out. Because the pouches are clear, I know EXACTLY what's in it without having to take a peek.
