    What is the difference between the Photo Pass and the Memory Maker? I am trying to decide if paying for the memory maker up front for a September Disney vacation is worth it. Thank you.

    Hi Carol!
    The Disney PhotoPass Service helps you capture some of your magical vacation moments via the services of the fantastic PhotoPass photographers. These photographers are located at park entrances, near the iconic locations in each park such as Cinderella Castle, some Character meet 'n' greet locations, plus many many more. You can utilize this service with or without the Memory Maker Package.  However, my family LOVES the freedom Memory Maker provides, because with this package you can download every image captured by the PhotoPass Service during your vacation to use any way you would like. This includes photos taken on attractions such as Splash Mountain and Space Mountain. Last trip I even downloaded a video of my group on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror! If you decide not to purchase the Memory Maker package you can still view all your photos online until they expire and purchase prints or downloads separately.

    If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon!
