Oh Courtney! I feel sad just reading about losing all those pictures! "Gone forever" is not something I would have wanted to hear either

Glad you could get a new card though!

I'm sorry you lost your pics, that really stinks. We have so many problems with cameras that I carry around 2, and believe it or not our Fuji Wal-Mart special camera works extremely well after 5 years, while my new Kodak is pain in the butt and I just got it last year for Christmas.

Are food pics coming? lol love me some Disney Food Porn

Oh that is my worst nightmare . I seriously bring like 6 memory cards with me when I travel for that very reason...what happens if one dies? I also take SOOOO many pics at WDW that I've started taking my laptop with me and dump all my pics onto my hard drive every night. Randy thinks I'm nuts but that is the exact reason I did it! For future reference, my camera sometimes throws an error code when my battery is getting low for some reason??? So you could try that too if it happens again.

Oh, Courtney! I'm SO sorry to hear about your memory card! Sounds like you didn't let it upset you too much, which is good!

Can't wait to hear about the rest of the day!

Oh no! I'm so sorry about your memory card. That would have upset me too...I probably would've cried all through small world! I'm just thankful you were able to buy another one!

Love your Space Mountain pic

Ugh that's too bad about your memory card! I brought a back up card this trip, and the next time I go, I hope to finally have a laptop so I can immediately take them off the card and save them, just in case!

I know what you mean about SM, I thought when I rode it in May it was really jerky and uncomfortable, but this time, it was so much better, we had so much fun on it!

Hope you made it to CP on time!

That is such a bummer about the pictures! I can only think of one good thing to say: at least it happened early on in your trip. Not much comfort, I know, but I'm trying!

Loved everything else about your updates!
We really liked SM this trip, too. In fact, we spent more time in Tomorrowland than we ever had before (partly cause the park was so crowded we just didn't feel like walking through it!)

Hope you made it to CP!

Yeah, it would have been much worse if my camera was the problem. I don't know what we would have done at that point.

Devastated pretty much sums up exactly how I felt!

The crowds were definitely pretty impressive on this trip. Probably the biggest we've seen on our trips together.

I'm still sad. I hate knowing that I can't get them back.

That's terrible about your sit visit! I would have cried, too! It's amazing how much worth our pictures hold!

And congrats on your upcoming wedding! I'm glad to have another bride joining in. I'd love to have you join me on my honeymoon PTR as well!

I would be tempted to take a back-up camera now. You just can't be too safe!

Yes, there will be lots of food pics coming! I was good this time and took pictures of everything we ate!

So glad to have you reading along! And yay for your upcoming trip! Will you be doing a TR when you return? If so, I'd love to follow along!

I will definitely be brining extra memory cards next time! And, I'll be brining my laptop to download all of the pictures, too. I will be taking lots of precautions in the future! If something like that happened on the disneymoon...I don't even want to think about it!

I tried very hard to not let it affect the trip. Since it was such a short one I knew even pouting about it for a day would be too much!

Luckily Disney thinks of everything and they have extra cards waiting for these kinds of tragedies! It would have made the situation even worse if we had to go off-site to buy another card!

I will absolutely be taking a back-up card and my laptop and secure those pictures as soon as possible! Funny thing is, I even brought my laptop this time, but didn't bring the cord to hook up the camera!

Maybe they've smoothed out some of the bumps on SM, because I could definitely tell a difference!

That was exactly what I kept telling myself - It's only the first few hours of the first day! And it did help. If this had of happened at the end of the trip it would have been much, much worse.

I'm joining!

That's horrible about the memory card. The biggest thing is always the picture, it has nothing to do with the card itself.

You were there the same time my mom and I were.
