    Our first trip to WDW coming up in September! I purchased the Memory Maker. Do you know if the photographers take only posed pictures, or do they also take candids? Especially wondering about meet and greet experiences. Thanks

    Hi Liz!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so happy you are finding our advice a benefit when planning your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World.   All the panelists really enjoy helping Guests have the most magical time possible while on a Disney Parks holiday.

    I have used Memory Maker on 3 separate occasions and found it to be a fantastic addition to my trips.  It's so easy to download, print and share all my vacation memories with friends and family around the world.   I think you have made a terrific investment by purchasing Memory Maker.   A lot of shots that Disney PhotoPass photographers will take will be posed; for example, in front of Cinderella Castle, or next to Spaceship Earth.   Liz, when your family greets characters the Disney PhotoPass photographers capture moments from the minute you begin walking to greet your favorite pals.   I have some of the most amazing shots of my children in complete awe of actually being in the presence of Buzz Lightyear and Sheriff Woody.  You will get those candid moments to cherish for a lifetime during meet and greets.  I encourage you to  ask any Disney PhotoPass Photographer to take some magic shots.  You may be asked to pose in some silly positions, but when you log into your Memory Maker account later in the day the result will be so special.

    Thanks for stopping back by Liz!  Please let us know when we can assist you again.

    Have a Magical Day,
