    How far in advance are you allowed to purchase the Memory Maker? We will be going to Disney World the last week in March 2016 and we have been purchasing things in advance to help with our budget. Thanks!

    Hi Paige!

    Thanks for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love Memory Maker and have found that it adds a lot of value and convenience to our Walt Disney World Resort vacations.

    You can purchase Memory Maker at any time in advance of your trip. You will just want to be sure you make your purchase three days before your arrival at Walt Disney World Resort so that it will include the photos taken on the first day of your trip. When you purchase Memory Maker in advance of your trip, you can also save some money! Here's a link to the current pricing and rules for the advance purchase.

    With your Memory Maker purchase, you will have the rights to use your photos in any way that you'd like, including printing them from any service that you choose. In addition, you will also get on-ride videos and animated Magic shots that are only available to Memory Maker purchasers. Our family loves the photos and videos that only the magic of Disney can deliver, like a slow-motion video of all of us on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or a photo of our family with Olaf! When we look back through those photos and videos, we get a chance to relive some of our magical memories.

    Quick tip: Be sure to note that your PhotoPass photos and videos expire 45 days from the date they are taken, so you will want to download them before they expire!

    It was my pleasure to answer your question today, Paige. Please stop back and let me know if you have any other questions about your upcoming trip.

    Wishing you magical memories!
