    If my kids go on a ride without me, will the photo automatically upload because their Magic Bands are linked to mine, or do they need separate cards? If we get cards for them and link them to the MM account, will their photos upload automatically?

    Say cheese, Linette, and get ready for all the magical pictures! I am so glad you have purchased Memory Maker because it is simply unbelievable how many pictures you will take with the Disney PhotoPass photographers. Each time my family visits Walt Disney World Resort, we come home with over a hundred pictures to download. My favorites are always the on-ride videos, so we can see everyone's reactions while making those unforgettable memories.

    As long as you have your children linked to your Family & Friends list, and their MagicBands and theme park tickets are in your My Disney Experience account, then their Disney PhotoPass pictures should automagically find their way to your Memory Maker. When MagicBands are worn on attractions that feature on-ride pictures and videos, then those are usually linked automagically. Some attractions have screens at the end of the ride to view the photos. To be on the safe side, I tap my MagicBand to the Mickey touchpoint below the screen to make sure it finds its way to us.

    You will not need to get extra Disney PhotoPass cards for your children to scan when taking pictures. Their MagicBands will be just the thingamabob that does the job. While I went to Guest Services at one of the theme parks a few months ago, my older daughter wanted to visit some of her favorite Disney friends. She remembered to have the photographer scan her MagicBand and it was really great to check the pictures later to see what she had been up to on her own.

    Thanks for stopping by, Linette. We hope you have a magical day!
