    Hi! We are planning a trip to Disney World next week and thinking on buying the Memory Maker. I have a question though, is there any limitations for the ones that do not buy the magic band? For example are videos or pictures exclusive to magic band users?

    Hi, Yonathan!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so glad to hEAR that you are planning to purchase Memory Maker for your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!  I think photos make the best souvenirs, and I love to relive all of the magical moments from my vacations by looking through my Disney PhotoPass Service pictures.  With the purchase of Memory Maker, I have unlimited downloads of those photos, so it is money well-spent.

    If you are not wearing a MagicBand during your Walt Disney World Resort visit, the Disney PhotoPass photographers will give you a card to scan each time you have a picture taken.  After your visit, you can open your My Disney Experience mobile app, click on the three little lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen, and then click on "Photos."  From there, click on "Link Photos" and scan the code on the back of your PhotoPass card to view the photos linked to it.

    While you'll have no problem accessing your photos taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographers, there are several attraction photos and videos that will only show up in your My Disney Experience account if you are wearing a MagicBand while on the ride.  If it is important for you to have these pictures, you may want to consider purchasing MagicBands.  MagicBands can be found at many retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, and they can also be ordered from shopDisney

    If you do decide to purchase MagicBands, you can use the numbers on the back of your MagicBands to link them to your My Disney Experience account.  You will then be able to use them to access theme park tickets that are linked to your account, as well as your FastPass+ selections.  You'll love how convenient it is to have everything right there on your wrist!

    Have a magical day!
