The time is getting ever closer for our next trip to Disney World. To say I am excited is an understatement. We’ve been talking about the best way to get Miss A to record her memories of the holiday without it seeming too much like a chore and we have come up with a free printable Disney journal.
I love recording my memories and Miss A loves writing but I don’t want to make her write a lot each day, yet at the same time I don’t want her to try an remember everything when we get back home. So much happens every day with all the planning that goes into the holiday, that I think five or ten minutes when we’re having a rest in the hotel or by the pool is a good excuse to sit and write a few words about the day.
We thought about what memories Miss A would like to record such as the day and date, where we went to, her favourite foods, rides she went on, characters she saw and a space for any extra memories to be added. We also decided a photo space would be a good idea for when we returned home and added in extra memories.
I have laid out the planning sheet quite simply with large spaces incase there is lots she wants to add in on a daily basis to include the following information.
- Where we went today
- My favourite food today
- My favourite ride today
- Characters I saw today
- My favourite part of today
- Todays memories
I have created Miss A’s travel journal on A4 sized paper as I think it’ll work well being presented in an A4 display book with clear pockets. This will help keep everything together and she will be able to add extra memories to the book such as park maps and other photos. A display book is quite plain, so we have decided that we will decorate with Disney stickers to keep with the theming which I think is a great idea.
This daily Disney travel journal is available to you as a free download if you are thinking of completing something similar with your children for any upcoming Disney trips. The beauty of this printable sheet is that you can adapt it for Disney World, Disney Land, Disney Land Paris etc. Print one for each day of your trip.
