    Does the advance purchase memory maker become active immediately after purchase?

    Hey there, Katrina. Welcome to planDisney

    Katrina, I am excited to know you are interested in purchasing the Memory Maker for an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. The Memory Maker has been a wonderful addition to many of my Walt Disney World vacations. The pictures the PhotoPass photographers take are priceless and I so enjoy looking at them while I am at home anxiously awaiting my next magical getaway. 

    Katrina, your advance purchase of the Memory Maker does not immediately become active after purchase. You must wait at least three days after your purchase to activate your Memory Maker. If you have that kind of time, the advanced purchase price is totally worth it. You are going to save around $30.00  (keep in mind prices are always subject to change) which is a fun souvenir, meal or snack somewhere instead.

    The advanced purchase of Memory Maker includes all of the pictures and videos from your trip. If you decide to purchase this add-on, you'll want to be sure to stop at lots of PhotoPass photographers throughout the day to make it worth your while. I personally love asking if they have any magic shots they can take of me and my family. I love the surprise element a magic shot brings because you don't know what pixie dust you are going to get until you see the picture. You can also share your Memory Maker with up to 25 people on your Friends & Family list on your MyDisneyExperience account. So if you spit up throughout the day, as long as you are still connected, you'll be able to see and download those images of others taken throughout the day. 

    I hope this helps, Katrina. If you have any other questions about this, or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
