(Nearly) Free Disney Souvenirs

Disney vacations offer a wide variety of souvenirs which can be purchased at their wide varieties of gift shops strategically placed all over their theme parks.  While I do find the items Disney has for sale in these shops enticing, I have instead found a free souvenir that I appreciate even more!

I have found that the photos I have taken are among my favorite way to commemorate my vacation.  When I see the photo I took, I am quickly brought back to the spot where the photo was taken.  I see the subject in my mind as I saw it right before I took the photo.  Seeing the photo again takes me back, even for the moment.  I love that digital photos now allow us to take many photos of a subject, in hopes to get one that best replicates what we are seeing with our own eyes.

Here are a few photos of my son I have taken along Main Street over the years.  As my subject matter gets older, I can take a few more photos without him running away before I have finished:)  My son now knows that when we come to the Magic Kingdom, mom will want to take a photo.  I love being able to flip through these photos and see how he has grown, with Main Street as a backdrop.

When my son was very small, I began taking his photo on Main Street.  I decided to find a place on Main Street I felt would never be removed so in future vacation to the Magic Kingdom, I could attempt to duplicate the photo.  This helped to demonstrate the grown of my son.  What a great souvenir!
