    I have 3 FREE-DINING pkgs. My husband & I want to upgrade our 2 park-hoppers during the week to APs. I noticed APs include photo pass. Is this AP perk the same as Memory Maker? If I want pics from day 1 do I have to upgrade to the annual pass on day 1?

    Hi, Carolyn! Thank you so much for stopping by with your question. There are so many reasons to become a Walt Disney World Resort Passholder - extra visits to your favorite park, a variety of great discounts all over the Resort, and even special events for Annual Passholders. One of my favorite benefits is having unlimited downloads of our Disney PhotoPass pictures! I love this service, as it allows me to leave my camera behind and put the PhotoPass photographers in charge of capturing all of our unforgettable moments.

    Since Disney PhotoPass downloads are included with the Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus Annual Passes, as well as the Premier Annual Passport, you do not have to purchase Memory Maker, as the Annual Pass PhotoPass benefit works in the same way. 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 accord with the Disney PhotoPass Expiration Policy. The day of your Annual Pass activation is also the day when your PhotoPass benefit begins. So, I highly recommend that you upgrade your Magic Your Way tickets to your choice of Annual Pass as soon as possible. I would hate for you to miss a single unforgettable picture!

    I hope you have a magical visit, Carolyn! If you have any other questions for us, please feel free to come by again and ask away.
