    We are planning a vacation to disney world. My aunt bought us all tickets, but sent me my own to my disney app. Is there a way we all can share just one photo pass? Or do we each have to buy seperate passes?

    Smile and say, "Cheese!" Welcome to planDisney, Hannah. You'll be posing for the camera at Walt Disney World Resort in a flash, so let's discuss how Disney PhotoPass Service will work for your party. 

    How generous of your aunt to treat you to magical theme park tickets! We all need relatives like her. It sounds like everyone will have their own theme park tickets linked to their individual My Disney Experience accounts, so the next step is to ensure you're all connected in Family & Friends. You can do this easily in person by selecting "Profile" in your mobile app and toggling to "Family & Friends List."

    You'll see a list of guests you're sharing plans with, so if anyone in your party isn't listed, scroll to the blue "Add a Guest" link and choose "Scan their linking code." You can find that linking code by going to your profile page and tapping "Show My Linking Code" near the bottom. Follow the instructions to scan those codes, and you'll all be linked in no time!

    Once everyone is sharing plans, only one guest needs to purchase Memory Maker. This Disney PhotoPass product allows unlimited digital downloads of all photos taken by the PhotoPass photographers and on attractions during your visit. The good news is that up to 25 guests sharing plans should also see those photos in their accounts.

    Remember that the guest with Memory Maker must have their MagicBand or card scanned by the photographer for the photos to be free of the watermark. But that guest doesn't have to be in every photo. I recently took group photos with friends, but some wanted individual photos at Cinderella Castle. The photographer was kind enough to accommodate our request, but I was sure to scan my MagicBand since I have Memory Maker. 

    One tip is to check availability for a Capture Your Moment session. These 20-minute photo shoots can accommodate up to eight guests, and the PhotoPass photographer will focus solely on your group during that time. There's a fee for the session, but if one of you has purchased Memory Maker, you'll have unlimited digital downloads of all the images. 

    Hannah, I hope you and your group are ready for your close-ups! Have a picture-perfect time, and stop by planDisney again.

    Magic awaits,
