    I was interested in the memory maker, how does that work? I'm not staying on property. Will I get an armband for it with the purchase or should I buy myself an armband for it?

    Hi there Billijo, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I absolutely love the Memory Maker product. It allows me to capture the magical moments of my vacation without carrying a camera around the parks all day. When you purchase Memory Maker, you will need to link your purchase to your My Disney Experience account. When one of Disney’s PhotoPass® Photographers takes your photo it will automatically be added to your account after they scan your Memory Maker card or MagicBand. There are hundreds of locations to choose from , some of them in front of the most iconic landmarks at the Disney Theme Parks, water parks and Disney Springs.

    Since you are not a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you would need to purchase a MagicBand online or in person and link it to your My Disney Experience account. You can also use your MagicBand to gain entry into the parks and redeem your FastPass+ selections too. When you are wearing your MagicBand on board certain rides and attractions, your photos and videos will be automatically added to your Memory Maker account. You will have 30 days from the day your photos are taken before they expire to crop, edit, download and share your photos with friends and family. You can purchase a Memory Maker archive disc with all of your fabulous photos taken during your entire vacation. I hope this helps to answer your question. If you need any more help, feel free to come back and visit us again.
