    Hi! We will have 9 people in our group for a September trip! We will be in two rooms but we are under 1 reservation. Do we need to purchase only 1 memory maker or will each room need to buy one? Any tips for visiting with a large family?

    Hi Lisa,

    The only thing better than visiting the Walt Disney World Resort is sharing the experience with loved ones! I'm really excited to hear that you and lots of your Mouseketeers will be able to enjoy a trip to the most magical place on earth together this fall! With Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival going on, September is a great time to visit!

    I'm happy to let you know that as long as you're all connected via the Family & Friends List within My Disney Experience and have given each other permission to view your photos, you'll be able to view, share, and download all of the photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers as well as any photos or videos that are captured on select attractions with just one Memory Maker purchase. You'll LOVE being able to relive your favorite moments for years to come!

    As a mama to five kiddos, my immediate family alone is a rather large party, but I've also enjoyed several vacations with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, too. My number one tip for visiting with a large party would be to feel free to split up at times. Allowing little ones or older Mouseketeers to rest a bit in the afternoon while the thrill-seekers enjoy their favorite attractions lets everyone vacation the way they'd like. Coming back together for a magical and delicious dinner will allow you to catch up and share about all of the memories you made while you were apart, and ending the day with a spectacular fireworks display together will fill you with lots of warm fuzzy Disney moments.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa, and please feel free to visit us again with more questions! I hope that you and your entire group have a truly magical vacation!
