    Can you please explain how Memory Maker works. I have purchased it for the first time. Will I be given a card at Check in? Will I scan that card at photographer's and ride entrances? Please explain the download process. Thank you.🙂

    Hello Emmanuel! Thanks for sending us another question at planDisney. I would be happy to explain how Memory Maker works.

    Your Memory Maker is a digital entitlement linked to your My Disney Experience account. Once you have captured at least one Disney PhotoPass photo, you can activate your Memory Maker by selecting a photo and choosing "Activate My Photos". This will allow you to download your photos without the watermark. Once activated, you will then have 30 days in which to capture additional photos. Note that you are not required to activate your Memory Maker right away. If you prefer, you can wait until you have returned home to activate your Memory Maker and download all your Disney PhotoPass photos at once.  Just make sure to download your photos before they expire, 45 days after the date on which they were captured.

    Now, let's chat about how you will link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account. For photos that are captured by a Disney PhotoPass photographer, the photographer will scan your MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile Pass, or ticket card, or you can ask the photographer to provide you with a Disney PhotoPass card. Another option is to create a code for the photographer to scan in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Use the menu button in the lower right corner of the home screen to select "Photos", then "Link Photos" in the upper right corner, and then scroll through the icons at the top to select "Show PhotoPass Code". On-ride photos will "automagically" link to your account via a MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass. Some, but not all, attractions that offer on-ride photos will have a photo preview area near the exit to the ride where you can scan your ticket card or Disney PhotoPass card. During my last visit, I noticed signs posted in the queues for attractions that offer on-ride photos with a code to scan to assist with enabling Bluetooth for the My Disney Experience mobile app to link photos. My suggestion would be to purchase a MagicBand for at least one member of your party. In my opinion, this is the easiest way to connect your photos to your account.

    You'll be able to select and download individual photos on your mobile device by choosing "Save" under a photo you have selected. Since I usually end up with hundreds of Disney PhotoPass photos during my vacation, I prefer to download them all at once on my computer at home rather than take up storage space on my phone.

    Emmanuel, I hope you found this information helpful.  If you have any additional questions, feel free to stop by planDisney again anytime.
