    Hi! We are a family of 5, does every one need to have their own Magic Bands so we can get our Memory Maker photos and video clips while on the ride? Thanks.

    Hey there Ercelli and welcome back to planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by with another question. Memory Maker with Disney PhotoPass photos are so important during my Disney vacations. I love to capture those staged and spontaneous moments with my family and Disney Characters. I have those photos loaded on a digital picture frame in my living room rotating through the memories and taking me back to my happy place.

    Fortunately, Guests do not need a Disney band of any kind. A Key to the World card (complimentary plastic theme park card at Guest Relations also your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room key ) will do almost everything a Disney band will do. A benefit of the Disney band is that attraction photos taken during certain experiences such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and TRON Lightcycle / Run seem to be best captured by Guests wearing them. If members of your family with Disney Bands are not going on an experience with Attraction Photos and Video then I recommend at least one person on the attraction having a Disney Band to catch the moment.

    Disney bands are a relatively inexpensive souvenir and can be custom made at places like D-Tech on Demand at Launch Bay Cargo in Disney’s Hollywood Studios or in the Tomorrowland Launch Depot in Magic Kingdom Park. The best news is that certain Disney bands are rechargeable and can be used for future visits to the House of the Mouse.

    Ercelli, I hope this information helps you capture every magical moment during your family trip to the “Place Where Dreams Come True.” Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions or for other Disney vacation planning tips.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
