    We have military tickets and are staying off resort next month. We would like to purchase the military discount Memory Maker and I was reading that for some photos to be linked we need a magic band. Is this true? Just need to know if I need to buy them.

    Hi Delana!

    Welcome to planDisney, from my military family to yours! I’m so happy to hEAR that you have an upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. ChEARs!

    The Specially Priced Memory Maker for Eligible Service Members is an incredible deal. My family always uses this offer when we visit the parks. It’s our favorite way to preserve all the memories we make when visiting the parks. The photos that you would need a MagicBand, to link to, would be some of the attraction photos like those of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Otherwise, at the end of most attractions you can tap your PhotoPass card, to link your photos.

    My family prefers to visit the parks with MagicBands. Honestly, it seems like my little ones are just fascinated with the idea of having a fun Mickey accessory, as opposed to the true purpose of  MagicBands. If it makes things easier, maybe purchase one MagicBand for one member of your party to use, especially if you are all planning on riding attractions together!

    Delana, I hope this helps you plan for your exciting visit. I cannot wait to hEAR all about your visit. Have a magical trip!
