Taking photos at Walt Disney World is part of the fun of going. Everyone does it. We share our photos on Facebook and Instagram. We force our co-workers to look at them on our phones in the break room. We turn them into wallpapers and screen savers and sometimes even print them to hang on our walls. The most creative of us turn our photos into amazing scrapbooks to cherish for years to come.
One of our Facebook friends, Kelly Tietz Van Eerden, shared pictures of a project she did with us. I love this idea because not only is it beautiful, it’s so simple that even I can do it. Her scrapbook even inspired a weekly game that we play on our Facebook page: WDW-ABCs!
Kelly made a scrapbook, using the alphabet as her theme. For every letter of the alphabet, she created a page with photos of things that started with that letter. What a great idea! Scroll down to see all the pages of Kelly’s book.
On your next visit to Walt Disney World, enlist your family members and traveling companions to help you with this project by taking photos for your own WDW-ABCs project. You can make a list of photos you want for each letter and turn it into a photo scavenger hunt to play while in the parks.
Give each person a list that has several possibilities for each letter, with the goal of getting at least one photo for every letter. Make each person’s list different to be sure to get a variety of photos. While waiting in line for rides, use park maps to plot out where to go next to get the photos needed. Then put them all together into one book for a fantastic memento of your vacation together. Each person could even create different pages of the book. What a fun way to extend a short vacation over a long period of time.
