Memories, photos & mementos all return home with you after a fun family vacation. Here are some ideas to keep those Disney vacation memories alive.
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. This way all the details are 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. I included B’s 1st Trip shirt, button and magic band.
This is how I displayed all the pressed pennies from Disney World. We definitely need more. That’s a good reason to schedule another trip right?
B’s bookcase is a mini Disney shrine with all of his keepsakes displayed on top. Complete with a framed picture of Mickey Mouse our travel agent, Heidi with White Glove Destinations sent B before our trip. I also used a collage frame to display a picture from each of the Disney parks we visited. 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.
