 Im just finishing up on the autograph books and my next project will be the passports... but im wondering if its worth it to do them. Did your kids enjoy doing them? Did it take up time that you feel couldnt been used better ways? Ive never ever done them so just trying to get some advice if its a must do, or if its just more of a pain to carry the 2 books around all day and stop for stamps and autographs.

 I'm learning new things about Disney almost every day being in this group! What is the Epcot Passports supposed to be?

 well you can buy them there or you can make your own (like im doing). In each country in Epcot there are places called a Kidcot Station. they kids can do a little coloring craft and then the cast member will stamp your passport from that country and write a little message in that native language.

When my daughter was younger they used to do masks.  First country you went to they would give you a mask on a big stick, then each country would have a piece to add and you'd color and design them.  Whether or not you have your kids do the project (the passports), DO visit the Kidcot place at each country.  They are a break for your kids if they just want to color for a minute and sit, and I have found characters there.  Once we walked in to the Toy Shop library at England, they have their Kidcot area in the back with a little library there for photo ops, and Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins were sitting at the table coloring lol.

Masks are still done, now they have Duffy ones... plus the kids learn to say hi or a greeting etc in the countries native language..
gives you and the kids a few minutes break which is nice...

They will do it in your autograph book too if you ask. About 2 years ago we started doing that. Some will also write it in English too.

 both my girls actually enjoyed doing their passports. (at the time they were 10 and almost 5).....they still have them as a keepsake of that particular trip too.

My nephew(10) and son ( 5) did a few but then they got more involved into wanting to do all the Kim possible mission. My 2 1/2 yr old daughter and 10 month old of course couldn't have bothered at the time with Kidcot.

My daughter loves the parades in all the parks and meet and greets....My oldest doesn't like meet and Greets even when he was 4 yrs old but he loved finding ones his sister would like last trip.

My oldest loved his in Jan.  I had it printed and bound on walmart.com and he really had a good time going around getting it filled out.  We had extra questions on ours to add some more education to it... like "What are people in mexico called?" "What is the capital of mexico?" "Who is the leader of Mexico" etc...and we had them write an interesting fact about the country and a message to his class on it too.
