Tips For Successful Cruise Trip Planning With Our Digital Planner

Whilst the printable planner is great for printing off and making notes, this planner really comes into its own when uploaded to an app like Goodnotes. Before going live I used the planner along with the Mini Travellers Disney Planner to plan our next two centre Disney and Cruise trip. I uploading both guides to Goodnotes and combined them together to create a tailored planner for our 13 day trip.

The beauty of using the planner digitally is that I was able to upload all of our confirmations for parking, flights and airport lounges to the Goodnotes app, then create a hyperlink to link each booking to the app. I have the app on my phone and ipad so that I can quickly go into the app on my phone to find book references and documents, addresses for Uber and timings.

I love that all of our travel details are in one place, saving me time searching for emails and it even works in airplane mode as all the documents are pre uploaded.
