    Hi Jutharat,

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Happy to know in just a couple of months you will be ready to enjoy an amazing time at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I used to carry a bulky camera bag and take pictures of my family, only to notice I was always missing in the shot. Now I simply let the Disney PhotoPass Service photographers to capture all our family memories in pictures and special Magic shots. All I have to do now is smile! Then, when I get back home, I can simply purchase that perfect shot, or better yet, get them all with Memory Maker. This allows me to get all those memories including attraction photos and videos too. To use this service, simply smile, ask the photographer for a PhotoPass card, and then link it to your My Disney Experience account.

    A MagicBand is a great invention. I would say the best one since sliced bread. It carries all your Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ reservations and can be used as a PhotoPass. It can even capture special videos on select attractions, like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, or The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

    One last tip: you can save some Disney Dollars by purchasing Memory Maker at least 3 days in advance. See you real soon!
