    we are interested in buying a photopass but we would like to link them to our magic bands. as we live in wales(uk) we are not able to get our magic band Id's as they are being shipped to the disney hotel we are staying there anyway we could get them?

    Hello Robert, 
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question!
    As a Canadian, I definitely feel your MagicBand pain - we can't get ours shipped to us before our visits to Walt Disney World Resort, either. That being said, you can still make your FastPass+ selections, dining reservations and even board your Disney's Magical Express motorcoach, and link Memory Maker to your My Disney Experience account, all without receiving your MagicBands in the mail. In the end, although it would be nice to receive a magical package in the mail, it's really just a (very) minor inconvenience.
    If I understand your question correctly, you’d like to purchase a Memory Maker before your departure for Walt Disney World Resort in order to be able to download all of the PhotoPass pictures that will be taken during your upcoming visit. It’s easy to do, even without a MagicBand! Simply log in to your My Disney Experience account, and click on Memory Maker in order to purchase it. Afterwards, make sure it’s linked to your account by checking in the “Disney PhotoPass” section of your account, and voilà! You’ll be able to see and download all photos that will be taken of people in your friends and family list.
    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and visit us if you have any other questions!
    Have a Magical Day,
