    Can you please explain Memory Maker. It ill be my 2-1/2 year old daughters 1st trip and our 5 year anniversary. Are the pictures just digitally on a disk? Need to know more if it is worth it or should just take the pictures ourselves with our phones.

    Hi Nicholas! Let me begin by wishing you a very happy anniversary! How magical it will be to celebrate by seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of your daughter. 

    In my humble opinion, Memory Maker is worth every penny, especially given that it's your daughter's 1st visit. When our kiddos were your daughter's age, we spent a large part of our day meeting Disney Characters when we were in the theme parks. On average, we ended up with around 400 Memory Maker photos (sometimes more) from our vacation. While it could differ and will be specific to what attractions or experiences you have planned, it's still a great option.

    The PhotoPass Photographers are skilled at capturing your treasured moment and there have been numerous Memory Maker photos that have ended up on our office desks or Christmas cards. There are also videos at select attractions and Magic Shots featuring some of your favorite Disney characters. If you would like, you can also add digital borders and stickers to personalize your photos.

    While you do receive prints at select locations, for the most part, the photos are all accessed via a digital download. Once you arrive home from your vacation, you download your photos from Disney's PhotoPass website. You will also be able to see your photos on your My Disney Experience mobile app throughout your vacation. It's so fun!

    Yes, you still have the option of using your own camera and I'm sure you will also get some great photos. I just love the convenience of having the PhotoPass Photographers do what they do best...capture magical moments.

    I hope you enjoy every moment of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Once again, Happy Anniversary! I cannot think of a more magical way for to celebrate!
