    What are the differences between the Photopass Archive CD, Photopass+, and Memory Maker? Is Memory Maker download only?

    Hi Janet,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  The Disney PhotoPass services are fantastic, but the options can definitely be confusing, so these are great questions!

    Memory Maker is relatively new and offers instant access to digital photos taken during your Walt Disney World vacation by Disney PhotoPass photographers.  There are literally hundreds of spots where you can get these photos taken, including some dining locations and attractions.  If you've purchased Memory Maker, you can view, share and download these photos just minutes after they've been taken.  There's no limit to the number of photos you can have taken or the number of times you can download them, and your friends and family you have linked in your My Disney Experience account can also view and download them.  Once you're home, just download all the high-resolution photos from your account and have them printed in whatever method you prefer.

    If you purchased Memory Maker and decide after your vacation that you'd like to have the photo files put on a CD, this option is available through the Disney PhotoPass site to purchase this as the Memory Maker Archive Disc. 

    If you have not purchased Memory Maker and would like all the Disney PhotoPass photos from your account, you can also purchase these as downloads (Disney PhotoPass Archive Download) or on a CD (Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc).

    Individual photos are also available for purchase as either digital downloads or prints.    

    Memory Maker has replaced PhotoPass+, so that service is no longer available for purchase.

    I hope this helps, Janet, but please let us know if you have any other questions.  We love to help!
