    If you have the Magic Bands and everyone is linked to the MyDisneyExperience account, do you need to be with the person the Memory Maker card is linked to or can you still use the Memory Maker by scanning Magic Bands even when separated from the person?

    Hi Karen, welcome to planDisney!

    You're going to have yourself a merry little Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort this year. Seeing the Candlelight Processional presented as part of EPCOT's International Festival of the Holidays is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the season. This inspiring show occurs three times nightly at the America Gardens Theater in EPCOT's World Showcase from November 25 through December 30.

    One Memory Maker purchase allows you to view and download Disney PhotoPass photos and videos of up to 25 others. Start by making sure everyone in your party appears on the Family and Friends list of the person to whom the Memory Maker purchase is linked. Next, the Memory Maker purchaser should click "Update" next to everyone's name on a web browser and make sure the box to share "My Disney PhotoPass Photos" is checked for each member of your party.

    MagicBands are linked to individuals in My Disney Experience. When a MagicBand is tapped by a Disney PhotoPass photographer, those photos are automagically visible to everyone on that person's Family and Friends list with the aforementioned settings. The person with Memory Maker linked to their account does not need to be present. Isn't that convenient?

    The most wonderful time of the year can also be the busiest time of the year, Karen, so another thing to keep in mind is that Disney PhotoPass photos expire 45 days after the date they were taken.

    I ho-ho-hope you have a magical vacation. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.
