    Do the complimentary photos with Genie+ also include the photographers around the parks? Will I still need to buy a Memory Maker if I’m getting Genie + everyday?

    Hi Jessica,

    Welcome back to planDisney! I'd be happy to help as you approach the final countdown to your upcoming trip.

    Disney Genie+ Service is not only a fantastic way to reduce your wait time for your favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, but as of earlier this year, guests who purchase the service will also receive complimentary digital downloads of their attraction photos, too!

    My daughter and I giggled over our silly expressions on Space Mountain and our intense concentration while trying to conquer Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, during our recent visit. I'm always thankful for these special PhotoPass memories as my kids seem to grow faster and faster each day.

    While you'll be able to download your attraction photos with no additional fee, photos taken with Disney PhotoPass photographers around the parks do require a separate purchase to download. Since you're still just a little over a week away from your visit, you have the option to purchase Memory Maker at a discounted price before you arrive. If you know you'll want all the photos taken during the length of your trip I'd recommend purchasing Memory Maker at least three days prior to your visit. You'll save on the package cost by planning ahead, and you'll be able to start downloading and sharing those special memories as soon as they link to your My Disney Experience App.

    If you'd rather wait to review the photos first, you will have the option to purchase Memory Maker during your visit, or even back home, for a slightly higher cost. Memory Maker One Day is also a great option if you plan to do most of your posing on a single day. You can review the latest pricing for all Memory Maker options and the associated terms and conditions to decide which package best fits your needs. Whichever option you choose, just remember to download your photos as they'll expire 45 days after capture.

    I'd also like to mention that purchasing Genie+ will give you access to Disney PhotoPass Lenses, a set of augmented reality filters you can use to add characters, park icons, and some extra magic to your selfies. We love snapping these around the parks and discovering the special lenses we can unlock in different areas. It's a fun activity while waiting for the fireworks to begin, or even when you're relaxing back at your resort at the end of the day. Be sure to check them out when you arrive!

    Jessica, if we can answer any other questions please don't hesitate to come back and let us know.

    Wishing you a magical visit,
