    If we end up with a lot of great pictures from Disney photographers, can I purchase the memory maker after our vacation is over or do we have to purchase the memory maker before our trip?

    Hi Angela!

    You can absolutely purchase Memory Maker after your vacation is over, but you will be losing the savings of purchasing it in advance.  If you get home and see that you would benefit from purchasing Memory Maker and would like to download all of your vacation photos and videos rather than purchase a few individually, you can purchase Memory Maker online and will have 45 days to download them from the date they were taken before the photos expire.  These downloads will include any photos taken with a photographer, attraction photos and videos as well as any photos taken at a character dining restaurant like Chef Mickey's.

    To get the most out of your Memory Maker money, take as many photos as you can.  There are so many fun and unique PhotoPass opportunities available at Walt Disney World.  Always ask a photographer if they have any "magic shots" and you might just see Tinker Bell fly by in your photo.  

    I see you'll be visiting Walt Disney World during the holidays.  The parks and Disney Resort hotels will be beautifully decorated and make for gorgeous PhotoPass backgrounds.  Some Resort hotels have special times when PhotoPass photographers are in the lobby.  Stop by the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel to see if yours is one of them.  

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
