    We'll be at Boardwalk Villas (DVC, on points) in August. I have an AP. What is the status of Memory Maker? Do I still get it free or with a DVC or AP discount?

    Hey There, Melanie!

    Welcome to planDisney from a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member.  You're just a few months away from arriving at Walt Disney World Resort and it sounds like you'll be staying at one of my favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts during your visit, Disney's BoardWalk Villas. I'm so excited for you!  I love the fun, vintage atmosphere of this Resort and for me, there's nothing better than being able to walk to not one, but two Walt Disney World theme parks –– EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. And as you explore the Resort, a hidden gem you won't want to miss is the Ferris W. Eahlers Community Hall. Located along the pathway to Hollywood Studios, you'll find games, equipment and DVD rentals, fun craft projects, and more (my kids love the Mickey tie-dye!). It's the perfect place to sprinkle a little extra pixie dust on your stay at Disney's BoardWalk Villas –– be sure to check it out! 

    Like you, I love all the perks that come along with my Walt Disney World Annual Pass.  From dining and shopping discounts to Passholder-exclusive merchandise and events (not to mention getting a whole year of adventure at the Most Magical Place on Earth!), being an Annual Passholder takes my Disney Vacation Club Membership to another level of awesomeness.  And what better way to document all that magic than with plenty of Disney PhotoPass photos, right?  However, whether or not Disney PhotoPass downloads are included with your Annual Pass is going to depend on the type of Annual Pass you have.  

    If your current Annual Pass is one of the now-retired Annual Pass tiers (Gold, Platinum, etc.), unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads were included in the price of your Pass.  That means you'll be able to take advantage of this benefit until your Annual Pass expires.  However, if you have a Disney Sorcerer Pass or a Disney Incredi-Pass –– two of the Walt Disney World Annual Pass tiers that were reimagined in 2021 –– unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads are no longer included with your Annual Pass.  Don't worry, though –– Annual Passholders do have the option to add unlimited Disney PhotoPass to their pass at a discounted rate from the standard Memory Maker price.  If you'd like to add this service to your existing Pass, I suggest giving the special VIPASSHOLDER line a call at (407) 939-7277 or stopping by any Guest Relations location once you arrive at Walt Disney World.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, Melanie.  I'm wishing you lots of pixie dust and plenty of Membership magic during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit!

    See Ya Real Soon,
