    Hi! I don’t plan on purchasing the memory maker photo package prior to my trip, but will purchase after vacation if I like enough pictures. How will I have access to my ride photos if I don’t have a magic band to scan? Is there a scan ticket area? Thanks!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alexandria!

    I’ve been in your shoes before. In fact, last June my wife and I were in-between purchasing Memory Maker and we actually wish we would have pre-purchased the package. We felt like we spent more time struggling to take selfies or flagging down other guests to take our picture than the time it would have taken to truly utilize all the photo opportunities that Memory Maker offers.

    Fast forward to a trip that I took in December and Memory Maker was officially added to our plans… and let me tell you, we used it a lot! Knowing that the photos were being taken by a professional and that we would have unlimited digital downloads was really convenient.

    However, I will say that if you plan to take advantage of Memory Maker I would highly recommend getting a MagicBand as it is required to receive certain attraction photos and other digital content. While you can still scan at several attractions, having MagicBand just makes the process very easy. Finally, if you're on the fence about purchasing Memory Maker, I would recommend the Advanced Purchase as it's be $30 less. Plus, you can even purchase a MagicBand and you'll still come out ahead!

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a magical day!
