    What is the difference between the PhotoPass Service and the Memory Maker?

    Hi, Kathleen! Disney PhotoPass service is a complimentary service available to all Guests. Disney PhotoPass photographers are located throughout Walt Disney World Resort, just waiting to take your picture. They will scan your MagicBand or theme park ticket to link the photos to your My Disney Experience account. If you do not have either of these, the photos will be linked to a Disney PhotoPass card. Once you are logged onto your account at the Disney PhotoPass website, you can enter the codes from all of your Disney PhotoPass cards to view your photos. Guests are welcome to purchase individual photos or even keepsakes that feature your photos, such as calendars or coffee mugs.

    There is a charge for each Disney PhotoPass download. For Guests interested in obtaining more than just a few photos, there is an enhancement to Disney PhotoPass called Memory Maker. Memory Maker is a photo package that includes digital copies of all the photos taken by PhotoPass photographers as well as attraction photos. Considering the number of opportunities available, my family always finds it beneficial to invest in the Memory Maker package. Kathleen, If you are considering Memory Maker for your upcoming vacation, you will definitely want to take advantage of the great Advance Purchase discount, which will give you access to all of the pictures in your Disney PhotoPass account at a reduced price. One thing to note about this is that the Advance Purchase Memory Maker must be obtained at least three days in advance of your trip.

    I hope this helps explain the difference for you, Kathleen. Please let us know if you have any other questions about Memory Maker. I hope you have a magical day!
