    If I buy a Platinum Plus Annual Pass, do I need to purchase Memory Maker or will I basically get that feature with my AP? Also, without MM, will family linked to me on My Disney Experience trigger photos on rides with their Magic Band if I don't ride?

    Hello Eileen! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    One of the benefits that made me become a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder last year was the complimentary Disney PhotoPass downloads for the duration of your Annual Pass.  Whether it was for our RunDisney Marathon events, capturing our kids on attractions for the first time or the crucial family photo with a Magic Shot, the Annual Passholder benefit had me covered.

    When an Annual Pass is linked to your My Disney Experience Account, any photos taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers will be sent to the "My Photos" section.  In perusing my photos from a recent Walt Disney World Resort vacation that we took with Friends, I noticed that the photos they had taken and scanned on their MagicBands when we were not present appeared on my account and available to download.

    If a Guest that scans a MagicBand or Park Ticket (or has it scanned during an attraction) when taking photos is linked to you under your "My Family & Friends" list, then those pictures will be posted under the "My Photos" section of your My Disney Experience Account. Be sure that the "Show Family & Friends" box is checked at the top of the "My Photos" page.

    Remember to take a look at all of the benefits offered to Disney Annual Passholders during Magic Kingdom's 45th Anniversary Celebration.

    Happy Planning!
