    Is Memory Maker worth the cost? If we do not purchase MM will the photographer use our phones to take pictures?

    Hey Howdy Hey William and welcome back to planDisney!

    I bet you are so excited about your upcoming trip in just a few short days! I am super excited for you as there is so much going on in Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate this festive Halloween season and the cooler fall weather. I would be happy to walk you through the benefits of Memory Maker as you decide on its purchase for your upcoming trip. 

    I hate to say it, but the purchase of Memory Maker is a great option but to say if it is worth it, it depends. The most significant part depends on its usage and getting the most from what Memory Maker offers, which is where I wanted to start. There are so many cool benefits to Memory Maker such as getting everyone in the picture, having the opportunity of the fantastic Disney PhotoPass Photographers taking your picture throughout the parks and of course ride photos! Those are some of the more common benefits of Memory Maker, so now let's dive into more of the specifics to plus-up your pictures!

    Magic Shots are one of my biggest tips to anyone traveling to Walt Disney World Resort with the purchase of Memory Maker as well. There are several varieties including Tiny World Magic Shots, Super Zoom Magic Shots and Classic & Animated Magic Shots. Both Tiny World and Super Zoom Magic Shots are only in specific locations in a few parks, so make sure to review where you will be able to find them before your trip. The Classic & Animated Magic Shots are available with most Disney PhotoPass Photographers. One little-known secret is that they all have different Magic Shot capabilities! So you can stroll down Main Street U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom and you might have Tinker Bell show up in your photo but on the other side of Cinderella Castle, you might have Airel and friends swim on through! There are so many different characters and Magical extras that can show up in your photos that you can make it a special experience to get your pictures taken often in front of the Disney Parks Icons as well as with all of the Magic Shots throughout the parks. 

    If you do decide to go with Memory Maker, make sure you do this at least 3 days or more from your trip and select the Memory Maker - Advanced Purchase. This option will allow you to save a little money by making this purchase in advance for your trip. If you do decide against it and want to spend a little more on souvenirs and snacks, which is also a good option, then YES, the Disney PhotoPass Photographers can also use your phone to take pictures as well!

    I hope this information helped to make your decision about Memory Maker for your upcoming trip. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
