1. Take Advantage of Disney’s PhotoPass to Remember your Disney vacation

It’s not often that you have the whole gang together, especially in a magical location!

Jump on the option to have Disney photographers take your picture.

Yes, moms, that means you get into the picture too!

Pictures bring back a million memories. Do not skimp out on these!


2. Buy a set of Mickey ears to remember your Disney vacation

When we took our family on their first big trip, we made a huge deal about buying our youngest (at the time!) his first set of Mickey ears.

Before we left we did a scavenger hunt that ended with the two older children wearing their ear hats from a previous trip.

Seth had none! Oh no… what are we going to do about that?

How about we head to Disney and get you a pair, pal!

He still talks about how excited he was the whole plane ride there and how proud he was when he finally got ears with his name on them.

Also: my poor kiddos needed sunglasses. Florida is bright, yo!

3. Get autographs to remember your Disney vacation

And be creative about it!

Sure, there are autograph books but you can also have t-shirts, photo mats, hats, and even medals signed by your favorite characters.

True story: I have a runDisney race medal signed by Tinker Bell.

My friend JJ had Cinderella sign her Glass Slipper Challenge medal too!

4. Buy a Souvenir You will use to remember your Disney Vacation

I stopped buying shirts my kids would out-grow (or I would for that matter. Ahem.)

Instead, I try to find something that can be used every day.

My current go-to Disney vacation souvenirs are Disney travel coffee mugs.

Like this one.

The Castaway Cay Challenge cruise may be over, but my memories are as strong as the coffee inside!


5. Take a Picture of your souvenir in the park to remember your Disney vacation

Castles are perfect backgrounds for … pretty much everything.

If you bought something special to commemorate your trip, take a picture of it at the park.

Insta-worthy vacation memories for the win!


We all love those rose gold ears but there's a new set of ears on the horizon. Vintage Minnie ears are here and we are LIVING FOR THEM. Here's how you can find vintage Minnie ears at Disney.

6. Add A Special Experience to Your Disney Vacation

The sky is the limit here!

My family splurged on a golf cart when we stayed at Ft. Wilderness campgrounds one year and we loved zipping all over the place together in it. It was a simple mode of transportation that was “so cool!” and is still talked about to this day!

We’ve also had a fireworks dessert party, taken a Christmas tour in Disneyland, had a special celebration cake delivered to our room, and run a Disney race together.

My friends once booked a private fireworks cruise to celebrate my 40th birthday- which was amazing.

Disney has so many options to make your trip even more special you can find a fit with just about any budget.

Planning a trip to Disney is all about the details! Here’s hoping you can find a few ways to remember all the fun you had while at the most Magical (Disney World) or Happiest (Disneyland) places on earth.
