    I want a magic band for the memory maker. Can I just purchase 1 for myself for the photographer to scan and be able to get the photos for all members of my family? Do I actually need a magic band for the memory maker? It says some video requires it

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kai jui!

    I know you want to get the most from your Memory Maker purchase by capturing as many magical vacation moments as possible!  Memory Maker will allow you to download all your Disney PhotoPass photos, including those of up to 25 members of your Family & Friends List in My Disney Experience.

    The answer to your question is yes and no.  For most situations, you will not need a MagicBand to link your photos.  When capturing photos with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, the photographer can scan your ticket card or issue you a PhotoPass card that you can then use to link additional photos.  For most attractions that offer on-ride photos, you will see a photo preview wall at the ride exit where you can scan your card to collect your photo.  However, there are a few attractions that do not have a photo preview area, and photos can only be linked "automagically" with your MagicBand.  The following attractions require Guests to be wearing MagicBands in order to link their photos and videos:

    If you are the only person in your party wearing a MagicBand, then you will only be able to see the photos of the Guests riding in the same vehicle with you.  Frozen Ever After and Pirates of the Caribbean use boats that can accommodate larger parties, but at Haunted Mansion you will only receive the photo of the Guests riding in the Doom Buggy with you.  At Slinky Dog Dash and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, you will be able to see the Guests sitting in the row directly in front of or behind you.

    MagicBands are such a convenient accessory.  You can use them to access your admission for theme park entrance and to redeem your FastPass+ reservations.  I much prefer being able to scan my band rather than digging in my pocket or purse for a card.  You might want to consider purchasing MagicBands for everyone in your party, or at least buy several if it is important to you to be able to have all the ride and attraction photos and videos for everyone in your party.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  Enjoy your vacation!
