    What is the difference between the memory maker and the photo pass? I purchased the memory maker, will I need the photo pass also?

    Hey Alicia-
    How can everyone in your group be in you magical pixie-dusted Walt Disney World photos? Yep … by using Disney’s PhotoPass photographers. When it comes to Memory Maker and Disney’s PhotoPass Service it can be confusing.

    Disney's PhotoPass Service is a free service where a Disney PhotoPass photographer or an attraction
takes the photo. This way no one is left out of the moment Mickey hugs you or Goofy gives you a high-five. All photos can be shared among Guests in your party. You may even customize them with borders, graphics and Magic Shots! The Disney PhotoPass photographer or location has a device which will link your images to any Guests' MagicBand in your party. Attractions such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror even have videos of your experience. Anyone may utilize the PhotoPass Service but each photo will need to be purchased individually. So, if you love the picture of you rushing down the 52 ft. plunge on Splash Mountain you will need to pay for it.

    Memory Maker is a service offered which allows unlimited PhotoPass photos made of your group by Disney’s PhotoPass photographers or attractions to be downloaded. With Memory Maker you essentially pre-purchase all your magic moments upfront. The same Splash Mountain photo from before is included with this service.

    Alicia, please let me know how I may help you with more ways to make your vacation wonderful.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
