    Can I use magic bands for photopass without them being linked to my park ticket? I will have admission thanks to a family member who is a cast member so my tickets will not be linked to a magic band but I would like to get on-ride photos and memory maker.

    Hiya Trevor,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you are less than a month away from your visit to Walt Disney World. Disney PhotoPass is such an excellent way to capture the magic and the memories of your vacation. There are so many photo opportunities throughout the parks, from cameras on the attractions capturing you in the midst of the fun, to Character Greeting photo opportunities. You will also definitely want to check out the Magic Shots that capture some truly incredible photos in each of the parks, some adding fun animation while others create effects such as the Tiny World Magic Shots and Super Zoom Magic Shots. 

    The purchase of Memory Maker, a Disney PhotoPass Product, gives you access to unlimited digital downloads of all of your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos. You can purchase the Memory Maker in advance for a discounted price. In order to make use of both Disney PhotoPass and Memory Maker, you simply have to ensure that your MagicBand is linked in your My Disney Experience app. You will then tap your MagicBand at the touch points for attraction photos or with the Cast Member photographers. It is not necessary that your park tickets also be linked to your MagicBand. 

    I hope this information helps you to capture all of the magic of your Walt Disney World vacation! Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
