    I bought memory maker today but my Disney vacation doesn’t start until late next month. Is there something I have todo to activate it when I arrive, or will that happen automatically when the photographer/cast member takes my photo and scans my magic band?

    Hi Christy!

    September is a fantastic time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! You'll often find fewer crowds in the theme parks in late September once most schools start and you'll also be able to enjoy beautiful autumn decorations throughout the resort. Plus, you can visit the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, where you can enjoy tasty treats and beverage offerings while you travel around World Showcase!

    Memory Maker is a fantastic addition to your trip because it will allow you to capture and save the incredible moments you enjoy during your vacation. You don't need to worry about activating your Memory Maker entitlement because it will automatically be activated once you capture your first photo with a Disney PhotoPass photographer or while you're enjoying an attraction. Once your Memory Maker is activated, keep in mind that it will include the photos and videos that you capture within 30 days of your activation date and you must download your images within 45 days of the date each image was captured!

    Christy, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app. It's a great tool to manage all of your vacation plans both before and during your trip. Plus, you'll be able to download all of your photos right from the app using your Memory Maker entitlement. I love to download some of our pics during our vacation to send to my parents so they can get a taste of the adorable moments the little ones are enjoying during our visit!

    Come back to see us if we can help you again as your trip approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
