    Hi, My family will be visiting Disney for Christmas this year and I have a question about Annual passes. If I purchase an annual pass do I need to purchase the Memory Maker or is it included with the pass.

    Hi Wendy!

    I'm so happy to hear that you are planning a Christmas vacation to Walt Disney World Resort as there is no place more magical to celebrate the holiday seasons! Be sure to check out all of the beautiful Christmas trees throughout the theme parks and Disney Resort hotels. Each tree is uniquely themed and decorated to match the theming of the theme park or hotel. Also, I always recommend a trip to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to see the life-size gingerbread house, where you can even eat your own gingerbread shingle!

    When you purchase an Annual Pass, you will be able to take advantage of all of the Annual Passholder Benefits during your trips to Walt Disney World Resort, including some awesome Passholder Discounts. While benefits are always subject to change, some of the benefits will really save you quite a bit of money during your vacation! All of your Disney PhotoPass photo downloads will be included with the purchase of a Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus Annual Pass or Premier Annual Passport. This also includes the photos captured by the MagicBands of members of your My Disney Experience Friends & Family List. So you will not need to purchase Memory Maker for your Christmas vacation as all of your photo downloads will be included in your Annual Pass purchase!

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App so you can download your Disney PhotoPass photos during your vacation!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
