    In order to take the Tiny World shots, do I have to purchase the memory maker?

    Hi there Kelly!

    Welcome again to planDisney! This is not your first time here and you are a planner after my own heart! 

    One of my regrets from my most recent trip to Walt Disney World Resort is that I didn't get a chance to take a Tiny World Magic Shot at Disney's Animal Kingdom. It is located just at the exit to It's Tough to be a Bug! exit area and I was racing to a dining reservation that I did not want to miss. There is always next time. These pictures are taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers but they do not require a person to have purchased Memory Maker. You have the choice to review all the photos and videos taken during your trip and purchase individually only what you want. However, if you know that your family will be taking lots of pictures then purchasing Memory Maker ahead of time is a great investment. My husband and I are Annual Passholders and we made sure to purchase Memory Maker with our passes so that we can take pictures together. I'm usually the photographer in the family and it is only in Walt Disney World that I am guaranteed many excellent shots of me with everyone. This past trip, one Disney PhotoPass photographer took amazing solo shots of my daughter that are truly frame-worthy. She captured her magic and for that I am grateful. It made this Memory Maker investment worth every penny. Just an FYI, make sure to pre-purchase Memory Maker at least three days before you arrive so that all of your photos are included in the package and you get the discounted price. I hope this helps you understand the flexibility of Disney PhotoPass photos. Don't forget that if you purchase Disney Genie+, it includes digital downloads of select Disney PhotoPass attraction images taken during the day you made the purchase! Those attraction photos are sometimes the most hilarious and best moments of the trip!  

    I hope this helps and if you have any questions, you know where to go!

    Happy Planning!
