    I am looking to purchase memory maker for my upcoming disney world trip. At what point does the memory maker become active and how long is it active. I leave for disney in 28 days. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Damion! Memory Maker is one of the absolute best values of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. By purchasing Memory Maker ahead of time (by at least 3 days), you can save at least $30!

    Memory Maker will allow you to capture photos at attractions, with Disney PhotoPass photographers, at PhotoPass studios, with characters, at Resorts and more. You’ll simply scan your MagicBand with the Photographers or the attraction photo area and it will upload to your My Disney Experience within a few hours. I personally enjoy all the Magic Shots that add a touch of pixie dust to what seems like an already magical photo! If you have already purchased the entitlement (and if you leave in 28 days, I’d go ahead and purchase) enter the parks and take a photo. I ride Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Magic Kingdom and mug for the camera! When you are ready to activate Memory Maker, open the mobile My Disney Experience app, head to your profile and then your photos. As you open up a photo to download it, you’ll see the option to activate the Memory Maker. Go ahead and start the fun! Memory Maker download period is for 30 days (you could conceivably have a week of vacation, head to visit family for a few days and come back!) and photos will be available for download 45 days after it was taken. I always have plenty of time to head home, unpack and then after I get my feet back under me, download all my photos to share with my family. With any extra vacation time, I’ll make photo books out of all my photos to enjoy for years to come!

    If you have any more questions about your upcoming vacation, let me know! And don’t forget to smile for the birdie! ~ Lindsey P.
