    Do I need to have a park reservation to activate the Memory Maker that I already bought? I’m thinking about to stay in the hotel and just go to Disney Springs. Can I download my friends park’s photos without having a park reservation myself?

    Seja muito bem-vinda ao planDisney, Laura!

    Thank you for stopping by with your first question. It is a pleasure to help a fellow Brazilian plan a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I am happy to share that you do not need a Theme Park Reservation to activate your Memory Maker entitlement. You can stay at your hotel, enjoy Disney Springs, and download your friend’s photos. You are welcome to download photos and videos from up to 25 members of your Family & Friends list sharing pictures taken during your Memory Maker window. To view and download your friend’s photos, please ask them to sign in to their Disney account and visit My Family & Friends. They must locate you on their list and select “Update” to access photo sharing permissions and allow you to view their videos and photos.

    planDisney tip: Did you know you can capture magical Disney PhotoPass photos at Disney Springs? I always visit the Disney PhotoPass Studio to take pictures with unique backdrops and fun props. No reservations are needed, so all you have to do is stop by the studio during your visit to Disney Springs. There is no charge for taking the photos, and they are included with your Memory Maker entitlement.

    I hope this information is helpful, Laura. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and be sure to stop by planDisney in Portuguese for tips and advice in our beautiful language!
