Disney Infinity has had a long line of amazing and weird accessories since it’s first release with 1.0. There have been cases to store figures, extension cords for your portal, skinned controllers and more. Of all the accessories that I’ve picked up for Infinity over the years, there is one that I use more than any other: My Power Disc Albums.
Originally released by PDP, these tri-fold foam core albums featured individual slots for all the power discs released in each wave. They were perfect for keeping them organized, tracking your collection, and laying them out for easy access.
Unfortunately for one reason or another, PDP failed to release a power disc album for Wave 3 of power discs back during 1.0.
Even more unfortunately, we the consumer got so used to these power disc albums that there was a bit of a shock when 3.0 came around and no album was announced. Instead we were given tiny keychain wallets, which were just power disc capsules 3.0.
With the power disc albums being my preferred way of storing my discs, I decided I needed to make an album to hold all my discs.
3.0’s current line up, including all the announced (or soon to be announced) power discs totals 28 discs. (29 if you include King Mickey… and 31 if you include the expansion game pieces). So to store close to 30 power discs, we were going to have to repurpose one of the 2.0 power disc albums that held 40 discs each.
Here’s what we did too transform an old 2.0 Album into a new Star Wars, Marvel & Disney 3.0 Power Disc Album:
The 2.0 power discs are covered with characters from 2.0. Certainly that wouldn’t stand, so we had to do something creative… We measured everything up, left a little wiggle room for cutting and gluing, and came up with this giant image ready to be printed.
For our test run (video below) we printed this out in 4 pieces, seamed them together and then applied it to the older album. If you are serious about getting this made, you can go out to a local printer and get this image printed and it wont end up costing you all that much (approximately $10-$15 depending on your location). Take the album with you when you decide to get it professionally printed and have them get all the right measurements and size it for you.
When applying the paper to the old 2.0 album, start with one end of the flap and slowly glue down section by section, making sure to fold the album as you go to leave room for the paper to bend.
Leave a 1/4″ edge all the way around the album and fold and glue around the edge of the cardboard edge.
For a quick reference, the album, fully laid out is approximately 34 x 12.
For the inside of the album, we put together a handy printable for you to print off and cut out to fill in all the spots with 3.0 discs (or future placeholders).
When printing the template it is important that you do a test run, every printer seems to take “borderless” a little different and image sizes can change depending on how you print it. Do a test run and print this off in “draft” mode and test the size comparing it to an existing power discs.
It’s ok to leave a little extra on the edges, it is easily tucked down in after you glue the disc images in place. Use a hard edge of something like a sharpie, popsicle stick, ect. to press the edge down after you’ve glued the pieces in place.
The template also includes 1″ round finger holes to use to add additional highlight to the disc slots if you should want to add them. We also included printable spots for your expansion games to keep them stored and tidy!

Here is a full tutorial on how to assemble the Disney Infinity 3.0 Power Disc Album! Sorry its a little long but there was a lot to cover!
We unfortunately haven’t had the time to assemble a finished version of this with a professionally printed cover, so excuse our mess with the tape and quick throw together.
