Whether your summer vacation took you to Disney World, the beach or just some sites in your own town, here are some ideas on how to preserve those memories.
If you’ve been following along you’ve seen all the Planning, Things, Extra Magic, Packing and Meal Planning that went into our Disney World Vacation. Today I’m sharing how I’ve preserved the memories of our magical vacation.
One of the first things I usually do when we return from vacation is create a photo book of our trip while it’s still fresh on my mind. You can read more about creating photo books from my post How to Organize Your Photos. I pre-purchased Disney’s Memory Maker ($169) and really enjoyed being able to have PhotoPass photographers snap our picture with characters and in front of different sites. The package also includes magic shots, ride photos and even some ride video footage. I made a slide show with all the photos and videos. I downloaded the Memory Maker photos along with the photos we took and used Snapfish to create our photo book. You can also create a photo book in Memory Maker but I’m more familiar with Snapfish so it was easier for me to use their site.
I found this Disney scrapbook at Michael’s. It was perfect for saving some of the souvenirs from our trip.
This is how I displayed all the pressed pennies from Disney World. I wish we had gotten more.
I turned B’s bookcase into a mini Disney shrine with all of his keepsakes. I framed the picture of Mickey Mouse our travel agent, Heidi with White Glove Destinations sent B before our trip. I framed a picture from each of the Disney parks we visited (I still need to hang it up). B’s Mickey ears are below the frame and his Pirate’s League gear is displayed on the right.
It was a great trip and we enjoy looking back at all the memories we created.
