    Laura from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    The person who has the PhotoPass account (linked to me) cannot join our next trip. Can I still use her magic band for the pictures or will it not work since she doesn’t have a reservation and will not be present?

    Hi there, Laura! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question today. I can see that your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just a few days away, so I'm sure you're busy with some last-minute planning. I'd be happy to help get you some answers before your arrival!

    Unfortunately, Laura, the Guest with PhotoPass must be present to scan their MagicBand for PhotoPass photos. They will need to scan into the parks and complete their fingerprint at the turnstiles, which would also require a valid theme park reservation. 

    Since your go-to PhotoPass pal will not be traveling with you this time around, you may consider purchasing Memory Maker for the entirety of your stay. With your purchase, you'll receive digital downloads of all PhotoPass photos and videos, attraction photos and videos where available and even Magic Shots! Magic Shots are special little surprise photos that feature Disney characters, treats or special effects. Only you can decide if Memory Maker is right for you, but it is a great little add-on for many Guests.

    If you happen to make it over to EPCOT this visit, be sure to prepare in advance to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. This thrilling new coaster is accessible via an Individual Lightning Lane purchase or through the virtual queue system within the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Either way, set that alarm to be up and ready to race your way into space by 7 a.m.!

    Happy planning,
