In January 2019 I was lucky enough to snag a Plan the Magic day planner. A wildly successful new venture by Disney Instagram influencer, Miranda Lee @themagicalmiranda, it sold out immediately in its inaugural printing and I was able to get one in the second wave in mid-January. This fun and functional planner is an unpretentious breath of fresh air among new weekly planner systems.
Any Disney-loving planner girl will gush over Plan the Magic. There are just enough Disney details included to make it magical, yet its simple vertical weekly layout in cheery yellows, greens, pinks, purples, and blues lends itself to the option for creative expression and organization.
I really love the Disney celebrations and anniversaries noted on the monthly spread - useful information for bloggers, Instagrammers, and Resort guests alike. The back pages feature all original content from Miranda, including packing lists and worksheets for your Disney must-dos and Disney dream experiences. A super useful tool on the last page of each month is a rundown of what to look for at Walt Disney World and Disneyland that month as well as average temperatures and weather for Orlando and Anaheim that time of year. Even when not planning a trip, I’ve loved flipping over to the next month and being inspired by what’s to come, such as Flower & Garden in March.
The construction itself is extremely sturdy. A heavy hardcover measures 7” x 9 3/4” and the 6 9/16” x 8 1/2” smooth matte paper is a good classic size. The paper is a great weight (no issues with bleed through) and the coated tabs give this planner a durable feel. The columns for each day in the weekly layout measure approximately 6 1/2” x 1 1/2” which works well with most mainstream planner sticker kits.
All-in-all, this thoughtfully designed planner could only come out of the mind of a true Disney fanatic. Miranda’s system is sure to inspire you to get organized and get creative.
