Favorite way to capture magic at the parks: My camera. I usually bring 2, my good camera, and a smaller camera that I use if it's raining or on water rides. Also my phone. Since getting an iphone about a year ago, I take a lot more phone pictures! I also like getting character autographs, which I then use on my layouts.
Methods of sharing your captured memories: Scrapbooking, of course. I take so many pictures, and I hate just sticking them in a photo album. So scrapping is a way to show off my pictures along with telling the story of what happened. I jump all around in scrapping, though, so I don't have a full album finished for any of my trips. I also LOVE tweeting during my trips. It's a way to share what I'm doing with others, as well as having a modified trip report once I get home. I tweet a lot of phone pics during the trip, and in the last year, I've gotten addicted to instagram, so I share lots of trip phone pictures there, as well. And now I'm posting my character pictures on a site I started this summer. Favorite tips or planning sites: Since I go so often now, I get most of my information from twitter, especially since I follow & am friends with a lot of people that live near the parks. If you're a Disney fan, I definitely recommend connecting with other Disney fans on twitter! wdwinfo.com / disboards, allears.net, disneyfoodblog.com, easywdw.com, kennythepirate.com (for character info) podcasts: DisUnplugged, Be Our Guest Podcast, DFB (Disney Food Blog) Podcast
I wouldn't go to the parks without ______. My camera, my phone (which has apps, lists, and other info I need in the parks), an umbrella and/or poncho (I don't care about getting wet, but my camera must.not.get.wet!) And even though I don't need a crazy plan anymore, I need *some* kind of plan. I just got back from a trip where I couldn't plan too much since I was attending several special events, and it drove me crazy!
A Disney Dream: Disney Cruise. Visiting other Disney parks around the world. I'm just getting into Disney 5Ks, but maybe, one day, I can do a Disney half marathon.
