    I'm confused between memory maker and photo pass+ Do you have to purchase memory maker in order to be able to get the ride & character photos added to a cd. In other words, I don't need the digital capabilities of mm, but want all my photos on a cd.

    Hi Lynn! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Memory Maker is the newest way to capture  your memories at Walt Disney World Resort and officially replaces PhotoPass+. Memory Maker is 100% digital and does not include any prints or a CD. Instead, Memory Maker allows you to download your photos as many times as you want with the freedom and flexibility to print your photos and burn your own CD with all the images. For those guests that want a CD of their images made, the Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc is still available for purchase at Walt Disney World Resort and

    You can always purchase individual attraction and character photos, but it's much more cost effective to use Memory Maker.  When you purchase Memory Maker, you’ll be able to enjoy unlimited digital Disney PhotoPass photos taken at hundreds of locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort and Downtown Disney including character meetings, iconic spots, special attractions locations like Splash Mountain, and feature restaurants.

    Memory Maker is fully integrated with your My Disney Experience account. Everything is connected with the all-new MagicBands - just tap your wrist or use your PhotoPass card and your photos will be connected to your account. Your photos will expire 45 days from the date the photo was taken so you'll have lots of time to download them to your computer. From there you can save a copy to a USB drive or CD. You can email these photos like you would any other photo from your computer.

    I hope I've answered your question. I hope you have a magical and memorable Disney Vacation!
