    Hello Moms Panel! If I only stay with the photo pass option, am I able use my pictures to create an album at another site such as Shutterfly? If not, does that mean I need to purchase a memory maker package? Thanks!

    Welcome Janyce!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your vacation planning questions! Disney's PhotoPass Service and Memory Maker questions are some of my favorite because capturing and keeping all of those magical moments are so important to every Disney vacation. 

    Disney's PhotoPass Service consists of Cast Members who take your photos throughout the parks and at certain dining experiences and also participating attractions that take ride photos and videos. You are free to use this service as you would like, but there are two ways to keep any of your precious photos taken. You can either purchase them individually, or you can purchase Memory Maker and receive unlimited downloads of all your photos.  Unfortunately, to use any of your Disney PhotoPass photos on any other photo sites, you'll have to purchase them through one of the options above. Another option (although you'll miss out on the Magic Shots and other fun Disney enhancements or ride and attraction photos) is to ask the PhotoPass photographers to take the pictures with your own camera. 

    I hope this helps explain Disney's PhotoPass Service and Memory Maker a little better, but please let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to assist!
