    My family and I are traveling to DIsneyland in a couple weeks. When we went to Disneyworld we purchased Memory Maker. What is the advantage of purchasing Photopass+ ahead of time?

    Hi there, Nikki! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your visit to the Disneyland Resort is coming up soon, how exciting!

    Purchasing a PhotoPass+ product is the best way to ensure you get the highest quality images of your entire family from around the parks. Purchasing either the PhotoPass+ One Day or One Week products will cost you the same whether you purchase in advance of, during, or after your trip. The advantage to purchasing in advance would be that as soon as your PhotoPass images are loaded to your Disneyland account, you can begin to download and share them right away. You can purchase both products online or purchase PhotoPass+ One Day on the Disneyland app. If you do buy one of these products in advance, you will activate them once you are in the parks and have your first photo taken by a PhotoPass photographer.

    PhotoPass Collection products are also available that include a voucher for a printed photo from select character dining experiences and the PhotoPass Collection + Disc option also includes a Disneyland Resort Gallery Disc. Both of these options can only be purchased in the parks.

    No matter which product you ultimately decide on, it's important that you link all the images to your account. When a PhotoPass photographer takes your picture, either use the card they give you from that point on for any future photographs, or have them scan the code in your Disneyland app to have the images automatically linked to your account. You can also link attraction photos by entering the eight-character code on the photo monitor located at the exit of the attraction. Keep in mind that you typically have 45 days to download these images from your account.

    I hope your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is full of many memories!
