    when getting a memory maker with a military discount is it activated day of or is there a wait period of 3 days

    Welcome back to planDisney, Heather! I am so happy you've returned with another question!

    The Memory Maker military discount is such a great deal! At $98 (prices subject to change) it is the perfect purchase to capture all of the memories you will make during your visit! From character photos to fun attraction photos, you will get them all! Don't forget to take a photo at Dreamers Point at EPCOT! The new Walt Disney statue is there (it's a beautiful photo op!). My family and I always take advantage of this offer. I am glad you plan on doing so as well! When you arrive at your first theme park, visit Guest Relations and ask about the military discount for Memory Maker. You can purchase it there, and is activated once you take your first photo. You have 45 days from the date the first photo was taken to download all your photos to your devices. If you go past the 45-day mark, you can purchase an extension, which gives you an additional 15 days to download them.

    Speaking of photos, here is a pro tip: If you are a Disney Resort Hotel guest, take advantage of Early Park Entry, especially at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park! If you have scheduled a breakfast reservation in the park, even better. I have taken some of my favorite family photos in front of Cinderella Castle at this time.

    Heather, I hope all of this information was helpful! Thank you again for visiting planDisney! Visit planDisney again for additional pixie dust at any time. I hope you and your family have a magical vacation!

    Magic Awaits!
