Then after all of that is done, have all the categories open so we could pick which rides we receive in return (up to the number of layouts we have signed up for). Or would this be too confusing. I was just thinking that it would allow those of us who need specific ride layouts to receive exactly what we are looking for without getting ones back we may not use or need.

Just a thought and maybe it won't work. I have a Halloween hangover and am not thinking very clearly.

Here's another idea: break it down like the ABC swaps. Have each person pick 2 or 3 rides and mass generate the layouts so everyone gets one of everything back. We could accomodate as many/few swappers as wanted to participate. I don't mind making large numbers of just 2 or 3 sets, its coming up with the ideas for 15 different ones that fries my brain.
Hmmmm, let me see if I can figure this out...My head is aching again and I had a HORRIBLE night last night (long story short, my battery died and we had to replace it in the dark in the parking lot of a TGIFriday's - sounds like a country song).

That may work for some, but not for others. For instance, I would probably use that Snow White paper for the Snow White ride...Let me try to wrap my brain around it...

Thanks, Sheila. I think if we do quarterly, we could make this due in February, second in May, third in August, fourth in November?

I was thinking MK first by itself, AK with Downtown Disney and Mini Golf, Epcot by itself, and DHS with the water parks? Does anyone have a preference?

Looks good to me! The order doesn't really matter since I'm planning on saving these for our next trip. I just want to start thinking about what I might do. The designing portion of the page swaps take me forever!

Okay...So if we have "titles", say we have 10 people interested, each person would make 2 or 3 different sets of 10? (If we decide to do double page layouts, that would be 40 or 60 pages, single would be 20 or 30. Right?).

This is the whole list for MK from the second post, we obviously don't have to include ALL of them (for instance, the generic 'land' titles), and/or we can add others as people think of them. However, I would like to have a final list before we open sign-ups so people can sign-up for a specific title/ride.

Am I understanding this correctly?
  1. Fantasyland
  2. Dumbo
  3. Barnstormer
  4. It's a Small World
  5. Enchanted Tales with Belle
  6. Journey of the Little Mermaid
  7. Mad Tea Party
  8. Mickey's PhilharMagic
  9. Peter Pan's Flight
  10. Prince Charming Regal Carousel
  11. Snow White's Scary Adventure
  12. Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  13. Adventureland
  14. Enchanted Tiki Room
  15. Jungle Cruise
  16. The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  17. Pirates of the Caribbean
  18. Swiss Family Tree House
  19. Frontierland
  20. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  21. Splash Mountain
  22. Country Bear Jamboree
  23. Tom Sawyer Island
  24. Liberty Square
  25. Haunted Mansion
  26. Hall of Presidents
  27. Liberty Belle Riverboat
  28. Main Street USA
  29. Dapper Dans
  30. Railroad
  31. In front of the Castle
  32. Tomorrowland
  33. Astro Orbiter
  34. Buzz Lightyear
  35. Stitch's Great Escape
  36. Carousel of Progress
  37. Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
  38. Space Mountain
  39. Tomorrowland Speedway
  40. Tomorrowland Transit Authority

Now, how does everyone feel about colors? Do we want to stick to the red, white, black, and yellow? Or, do we want to include the colors in the rides? I'm leaning toward ride colors, myself, but am open to feedback.

And, what about characters? Should we do a separate group for characters?

I'm in!! Not sure what I'm gettting into after reading all the ideas and suggestions!! But if it can get 5 years of WDW onto pages plus what ever DLR pictures I have too then I'm good!!

I just read your last post....so if we start with MK, we choose 2 or 3 rides/charcters listed, we would make layouts for all the players so at the end I would have pages for all the rides/charcters listed??

I do like sticking to the colors of the ride also and the quarterly dates are great!

Need to get to work, but boss is out of the office today and I'm in charge so I can check my phone more today!

How many we make depends on how many people sign-up. Say we get 10 people, and we all want all 40 of the titles listed above...We'd each sign-up for 4 titles and make 10 sets of each of those pages. If we got 8 people, we'd choose 5 titles and make 8 sets of each of those pages, etc.

If I can get an idea of interest before I actually open sign-ups, we will know how many each of us need to sign-up for to get the whole list.

I would prefer keeping the colors open to the rides. I already have a black/red.yellow book and would prefer not doing another. I think we should have a separate group for characters since there are so many options for them. Guess I know which swaps I will be doing for the next year.

Okay...So, I know there are specific characters in specific costumes. Frontierland has a special Donald, etc. Does anyone know of a list I could consult?!
