    As a first time annual pass holder are we eligible for extra magic hours at the parks? Also what is difference of photo pass and memory maker ?

    Hi, John, and congratulations on your Disney Annual Pass membership! At this time, Extra Magic Hours are a benefit afforded to only Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests. You may, however, use your wonderful Annual Pass to book a Resort stay with an extra magical discount. Then you will be able to enjoy the Extra Magic Hours offered during your stay.

    Disney PhotoPass Service is the system used at Walt Disney World Resort to take your pictures in the theme parks, on certain attractions, and at some dining locations. Memory Maker allows you to download all of those photos and videos for one price. There really is no need for you to purchase Memory Maker before any of your upcoming trips to Walt Disney World Resort. Complimentary Disney PhotoPass downloads are included with the Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus Annual Passes, as well as the Premier Annual Passport. As a Passholder, you will be able to download all eligible photos linked to your account as many times as you like until they expire, in accordance with the Disney PhotoPass Expiration Policy. You will not miss a single unforgettable picture by choosing to not purchase Memory Maker.

    I hope this information helps show how magical that Annual Pass of yours is! If you have any other questions about the benefits of being an Annual Passholder, please stop by again. Be sure to take a look at the great discounts that are being offered to Annual Passholders in the coming year to help celebrate the Resort's 45th Anniversary!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
