Take your photo in the same spot each trip!

One of the fun things we like to do as a family is to take a family photo in the exact same spot. It started out accidental really. Otherwise, I think we'd pick a better spot than the Toon Town backlot!

You can see our 3/4 of our last trips on my new post. Our girls were both too sick on our last trip to get a photo.

It's a lot of fun to look back on the photos!

Cute.

My daughter's name is Madison. I always take a picture of her by Madison's fountain at HS. For a while I've been meaning to pull them all together and see how she's changed over the years.

My first thought was, oh, no! No more Toon Town and then realized you were at Disneyland! We always took pictures on the carousel at DL and even have one of our youngest at 16 on the golden horse for DL's 50th birthday!

Love it! I'm sure our photos are going to be farther and farther apart since our oldest starts Kindergarten this fall.

I'm also nervous that one day we'll show up and Toon Town will be gone! Going to start another spot when we go back at the end of the month.

Same thing for us! Years ago I took a picture of my then 4yo DD siting next to Ink outside of the Finding Nemo ride at Epcot. That was her favorite picture and every year she asks us to take a picture of her in the exact same spot. She's 10 now and it is cute to look back on all of the pics, but a little bit sad too to see how quickly the time has gone!

Our parents always took pictures of us at the same places during the 15 years we visited WDW as a family. Our places were next to the Kermit statue by Muppets 3D at HS, in the shackles at Liberty Square at MK, and by an old fashioned coke machine by a gift shop close to Triceratops Spin in AK (don't remember the name). As an adult, I still have pictures taken at the same spots except by the coke machine, which is no longer there.

Another souvenir my parents would do every trip is have my sister's and my silhouette done together in MK.

I haven't been to WDW but I'd find a spot that you know will be there for some time. The other cool picture place we have used a couple of times in the Sword and the Stone statue. With Emma trying to pull out the sword. So many great places to choose from!

The Wishing Well would be a good place or maybe the Beanstalk in Fantasyland to be able to to note the growth of your children?

For 35 years we had a place where we took pictures every trip. It was near the Fantasyland Skyway entrance by a stream. It was removed last year. We were so upset!

We always took the kids picture at Mickey's mailbox in Toontown! I was very sad when we went last year and could not get "our" picture
