Disney Countdown Calendar – Free Printable!

disneycountdowncalendar

What’s the best part of planning a Disney vacation?  The anticipation of course!  So, I created a free printable Disney countdown calendar to get the excitement going!

Here’s what you’ll need-

 

Let’s put it together-

In the PDF, make sure the printer settings are at “actual size”, and print on cardstock or photo paper,

I found it easiest to cut out the window first.  Use an Exacto knife, and for a more precise cut, use a ruler as a guide.  If you don’t have an Exacto knife, scissors could also be used.

Very carefully cut out all the pieces-

In truth, I cheated a bit and used my Brother Scan N Cut to digitally cut most pieces.  I used the “direct cut” function, and selected the areas to cut.  If you don’t have a digital cutter, no worries, just take your time with a pair of sharp scissors.

Next, punch two holes at the top of the flag-

You can optionally glue the large Mickey head to the flag for more support.  Line up the gray dots as best as you can-

Next, we’ll line up the gray dots on the remaining pieces and grab the paper fastener brad-

I found scoring the gray dots with the Exacto knife made the paper fastener go through easier and without any extra creasing.  Also helpful, try to go through one sheet at a time rather than the whole bunch at once.

Punch through and spread the fastener ends-

Add some ribbon or string and you’ve got an awesome Disney countdown calendar!

Spin the white interior wheel each day to give the current countdown.

Each wheel holds a two-week countdown.  Change the wheel as often as needed.  The PDF allows for as much as a 98-day countdown!

Tip: If at any point the pieces start to curl, remove the paper fastener brad and place the sheets between two heavy books overnight.

 

Enjoy and have a fantastic time at Disney! 🙂
