Disney Quick Tips – Saving Your Digital Memories


More is better right? Wrong! If you have a 3 or 4 GB media card for your digital camera, or greater, you could be risking the loss of hundreds of Disney memories. Large GB cards can store several hundreds of high resolution images. It’s convenient not to have to swap out cards every two minutes, but not so convenient when your camera decides to have a melt down and erase what you’ve taken!

Or you could do what I did once and erase over 200 pictures yourself. And you could also lose your camera.

My tip is to use only half GB or 1 GB cards and swap them out often. Keep them separate from your main camera bag so they won’t get lost with the camera, should that happen.

Alternatively, upload your pictures to a laptop every night before taking more pictures the next day. This way if something bad should happen, you’ve only lost one days memories!

Happy snapping!

  1. ..and don’t forget, take a pic of the back of your Photopass cards just incase.

  2. A friend of mine had it happen to them because of a faulty card. Swapping out often is good insurance! Thanks for reading!

  3. Good idea. I have never thought of that. I guess I need to go buy some new cards.

  4. We take 4 of the one – two gig ones, swap them out often, and upload all pictures to the laptop each time we are back at the resort/house. NEVER take a chance of losing those memories.
