It’s one of my happiest happy thoughts.
Just the idea of it gives me the feels.
I joined the jet set at just six months old, and have my world-traveling parents to thank for my own intense wanderlust. I just can’t quit traveling.
Or wanting to travel.
Or planning to travel.
Just look at my 40×40 list.
And, because my two kidlets travel with me whenever possible, they’re both growing up curious about the world, ready to embark on all kinds of adventures – both near and far – as a family.
We recently had the amazing opportunity to join Adventures by Disney in Scotland to experience their Brave itinerary, and finding words poetic and beautiful enough to describe the awesome that was packed into five whirlwind days doesn’t seem like nearly enough.
That’s where Disney Story comes in.
Its effortless storytelling options make every mini-story-turned-slideshow yours to tell, with creative freedom letting you choose whether or not to include captions or just let your images speak for themselves.
To get you started, the Story app automatically selects photos stored in your camera roll, based on when and where your images and videos were captured. You can build stories in seconds, right out of these moments, or pick and choose your own by personalizing them with captions, pages of text, themes and layouts.
It’s all intuitive and addicting, considering that with just a few drags and drops, your stories can be curated and shared via email, Facebook or even embedded on your website or blog.
Only those who you invite can see them, and they’re visible in any browser on Story.us. You never have to worry about losing them either, since all the stories you create are saved in the app and backed up by iCloud for future viewing and editing.
And, if you come across a photo you forgot to add or meant to add once you’ve already finished your story, you can still include it. Just edit your existing story – the app won’t delete the images, text and themes you already have saved – and it’s like re-discovering those moments all over again.
