    Can you give me your opinion the pros and cons of purchasing the Memory Maker? Thank you😊

    Hey Dolores-

    So great to hear from you again! Memory Maker is the perfect way to capture all the magic without everyone scrambling for their phones. Mickey and the gang want you to remember your picture perfect vacation forever. We base our decision to purchase a Memory Maker on size of our party and length of stay. We purchase when we have a bigger party and a longer stay with more magic to capture. Pros and cons are like villains and heroes so let’s see who wins … Simba verses Scar.

    Simba (Pros)

    1. Best for Guests willing to stop for photos
    2. Best for character meet and greets
    3. Everyone can be in the picture
    4. PhotoPass photographers in many locations
    5. Unlimited number of memorable shots
    6. One price covers all photos
    7. Great for night photos
    8. Best for capturing character interaction shots and character meal dining photos
    9. Magic Shots with Olaf and Tinker Bell
    10. Theme Park attraction shots like Space Mountain and Splash Mountain included
    11. You don’t have to pay for each photo you want
    12. You may download all the photos then print/share/enjoy your way
    13. You may add borders, graphics, autographs and more to each picture at no cost
    14. No need to tote a bulky camera around for higher quality shots
    15. No need to make selfies to get included in the shot

    Scar (Cons)

    1. Cost (which is a big issue on a lean budget)
    2. You can get some of the same pictures for free by having PhotoPass photographers make pictures with your own camera
    3. No theme park attraction photos included
    4. PhotoPass photographers not everywhere you may want pictures

    Seems like Simba wins again. Well, he is the Lion King.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
