Tips for Remembering Your Fantastic Disney Vacation

Your trip was the perfect family trip.  Everyone had a great time, there were no major melt downs, and your planning saved the day. Giver yourself a pat on the back, you are a super mom!

You are now back home and you want to preserve your perfect vacation in an album or scrapbook. BUT you can’t remember the details. It’s all a blur.

You keep asking yourself, “Where were we when we did that?”  “What did I have to eat that was so great?”  “What was that about?”

Never fear, you reach into your bag and pull out your camera. The answers are right in front of you. You had taken care to document your vacation using 3 simple tips.

Tip 1: Pocket The Memorabilia

The easiest way to remember the details is to file away as much information as possible. You never know when it will come in handy.

For a Disney vacation, the easiest piece of memorabilia to come across is the check-in welcome packet. It will have all your resort information, resort map and calendar of events.

Then as you wander the parks pick up anything you can. Park maps, event programs, cards, etc. You can reference them all later to jog your memory.

There is no shame coming home with a bag of memorabilia. In addition to remembering the facts it also comes in handy as background paper and journal cards.

Tip 2: Photograph the Signs

Signs, signs, everywhere there are signs. (yes, I went there) But it is true. Disney is full of signs that and you should take photos of many of them.

Some are informative and have the facts…. Some are a bit more on the entertaining side…

Either way, taking photos of them can help you remember where you were at the time and what you were doing.

And a bonus is that any sign can also be used as a Project Life journal card in your albums.


Tip 3: Picture the Menu

If you can get a copy of the menu to take with you that is great! But never fear you can remember what you had by photographing the menu or the menu board.

The fun thing is not only seeing what you ate but how much it cost.

Now that you have the facts you can get back to making that album absolutely perfect. Just right to preserve that magical vacation.

You can use all of your information for journaling or add them directly to the page. Scanning memorabilia is always a good thing!
