    Memory Maker is an expensive addition to a short trip, so what alternative is there to be able to have pictures taken by the WDW photographers and access them later? any idea of the cost involved? Thank you.

    Hello Frances,

    I hope you are having a delightfully Disney day and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your great question.  

    There is no need to purchase the Memory Maker product just to take advantage of Disney's PhotoPass Service.  Although I have used Memory Maker and adored it, I do understand that it may not be appropriate for all visits.  The photo process will be much the same and you will still be able to use your MagicBand,  park admission card or annual pass to save photos to your My Disney Experience account.   Simply present one of the before mentioned to the Disney PhotoPass photographer once they have snapped your picture.  After your vacation, you can view the photos by logging into your My Disney Experience account and selecting "Disney PhotoPass."  The service is complimentary, however, should you choose to buy select prints or digital downloads, there is a cost associated with those, starting at $14.95 (subject to change.)  

    I hope I have been able to answer your Disney PhotoPass questions, but please let me know if there is anything else I may assist you with.

    Have a wonderful vacation!

    Magical Wishes,
