I dont' want to have to carry the entire thing, but want the information with me, so I thought I could just bring "those" pages with me each day! Hope it works!
Awesome idea to get an older copy and use the pages like that!

Great to know -- we will be staying there and I will be sure to ask for a map of the property form them!

That is an awesome idea - I have so many projects now!

I bought some note paper and punched holes in to add even more tips and information for the non-disney parts of my trip. Of course, I carry mine with me everywhere I go and I never seem to mind waiting for appointments anymore

Since he was going to wear it anyway, I used the clear pocket on the front to put our information in in case we got separated. Joshua's pretty shy and I didn't think he'd be able to tell anybody that he was lost, or be of any assistance should somebody figure out that he was lost.

I cut paper to size and laminated it, the front (where it would show through the clear pocket) said "If I can't find my Mommy or Daddy ... " and the back had our names and cell phone number on it. I also put another card in there with his name, age, hotel info, and a few things about Joshua and his likes, in the hopes that whoever found him would try to engage him in conversation they would have something to try to talk to him about.

We never did get separated, so we didn't have to use the info cards, but it made me feel better.
That is a WONDERFUL idea!!! I wish I would have ordered two PassHolders now! :-)

I like to use the map to journal what we did first by putting a 1 on it, and so on, so that I can remewber when I'm journalling later.

One of the greatest things that I took from my Passporter was the section on what to pack/bring with you on the trip. I made photocopies of the two pages and posted them in my bedroom. Everytime I thought of something to add to the list, I wrote it in the spaces provided. Also, whenever I had acquired something that needed to be packed, such as a free sample of travel size shampoo, I tossed it into the suitcase and marked it off of the list. This list is a great compilation of items to bring, many of which I wouldn't have thought of! Thanks for all of your helpful tips and input!

I always travel to WDW with a brand new Passporter. At the end of each day, I make extensive notes on the pockets in the back of the book. I complete every section and scribble all over the pages until they are covered with all of our Disney experiences. I list the food that we ate, and the characters that we interacted with. I always try to include even the tiniest details.

When I finally get around to putting a scrapbook together after our trip, I use my notes to write a narrative detailing each day's memories. I recently looked at our 2003 scrapbook from our trip when our daughter was five years old. The narratives made me feel like I was back in the park with my family nine years ago!

Welcome henrymilathy,

I'm not sure what question you're hoping to see answered. This thread goes back many years. Is it possible you saw one from a long time ago (I looked back through 2008 to see if there was an unanswered question)?
