2016 Disney Planning Calendar {Free Printable}

Are you planning a trip to Disney in 2016? Here's a calendar to help you keep your details in order!

Why use a planning calendar? I know lots of people like to keep an electronic calendar these days, and I certainly utilize them myself. But when I'm planning a trip, I prefer pencil and paper. It helps me keep my vacation planning in one spot and I can keep it separated from my "real life" as much as I need to.

What I add to my Disney Planning Calendar:
  • Our trip dates - departure, park dates, and return
  • ADR date (The first day I can make ADRs)
  • FP+ date (The first day I can make FastPass+ selections)
  • Last day to customize our Magic Bands
  • Final day to pay our Disney vacation balance
Those are also the things I add to my "real life" calendar. There's no way I want to miss any of those dates!

Here are some other things I add to my planning calendar:
  • I number the weeks backward from our trip, like a countdown. This helps me keep in mind how much time I have left.
  • Any major "real life" dates that I think are important to planning.
  • Tasks and goals for myself - making sure I know which FP+ selections I want before that date actually rolls around.
  • As we get closer to the trip, I add more details and even write notes and task lists at the top of the calendar.
  • Movie countdown list and schedule.
