Sorry for the delay in posting this week, our whole family has been sick! But we are still very excited for our upcoming Disney vacation, which brings us to part 2 of our Disney travel series (If you aren't traveling soon, these would also be great to print off and add to the Mommy Book). For more great travel tips as well as the experience that led us to decide to book our trip with Get Away Today, please see our first post Thrifty Disney Tips. And if you are going to Disneyland, don't miss our list of 15 Things to Get Before Your Trip to Disneyland.
For today's post I thought I would feature a bunch of printables that are very handy for vacation/travel. I will start with some Disneyland-specific printables, and also include a bunch of other fun printables for travel.
Free Printables For Your Next Vacation

Road Trip in a Box + Car Bucks SUPER CUTE printables, games and activities!
Road Trip Activity Tray and some awesome ideas for traveling with toddlers!
Disney Dollars. These are so useful for building up excitement in preparation for any Disney trip and will save you loads of money when you are in the park. In the weeks leading up to your trip, give your kids opportunities to earn “Disney Dollars” that can be used towards souvenirs in the park. This will save you from constant begging because they know how much money they are allotted before they even enter the park. They will also be a lot more thoughtful about what they really want when it's coming out of their own “pocket.”
Hidden Pictures Printables These are fun for all ages, are perfect for the car or plane, and don't require anything extra (pens, crayons, etc.)
Printable Disneyland Autograph Book. It's highly recommended that you bring your own autograph books if you don't want to pay inflated prices in the park. You can print one here: Printable Autograph Book, or if you don't have time to make one (a little too time-intensive for me), you can also buy one for much cheaper than you will find in the park.
Printable Disneyland Countdown. Get the kids excited for your Disneyland trip with some fun countdown printables!
Printable Packing List. I've used a few different packing lists in the past, but this one is my favorite. It's bright and happy and I feel motivated to put check marks in the boxes!
Printable Road Trip Activity Book. If you are driving (or even flying), you can never have too many activities up your sleeves. There are so many fun travel printables available for free these days, and this one is a favorite! It includes a page for grabbing a small memorabilia (leaf, grass, etc) at each pit stop, as well as some classic travel games.
Other Fun Travel Printables for Kids. Some of my very favorite travel printables are featured in the picture below. You can find TONS of fun stuff over at the Prepared Not Scared blog (travel money and tokens, Slug Bug, Alphabet Search, I spy, etc). You can also use a play dough mat booklet and license plate printable and turn them into a travel booklet by using dry erase markers, crayons, or stickers instead of play dough. I used the printables below with dry erase sleeves. They are great because it keeps you from having to laminate each individual sheet. You just insert whatever printable your kid is working on, and switch it out with a new one when they are done! I also have a fun I Spy Photo Scavenger Hunt printable here on the blog that is really fun for the kids.
3×4 Activity Booklet. I thought this idea was super cute. Basically, you size down different printables to 3×4, laminate, and bind with a book clip. So easy. Print some of the printables here: 3×4 Activity Cards
Also, I HIGHLY recommend Get Away Today for booking your travel! They have amazing customer service, and they beat any competitor prices! They were able to give us 2 nights free (as part of one of their specials) at the #1 Rated hotel in Anaheim! We were also able to get free warm breakfast every morning and waived resort fees. Use code MOTHERSNICHE to get $10 off (and use it to buy a Dole Whip instead while you are in the park! Yum)!
