    Hi! I was about to purchase an ornament, but I didn't purchase the photo from the Memory Maker. In the ornament preview, it's still showing with the Disney Photo Pass mark on it. Do I have to purchase the photo before I buy the ornament?

    Welcome to planDisney, Katie. I'm so glad to meet you!

    As the character Nancy said in Disenchanted, "Memories are magic." And the pictures that are taken by the Disney PhotoPass Cast Members are so professional and well done, they capture the magic of each moment. Having them made into memorable gifts is such a great idea, especially an ornament for the holidays. Every time you hang this ornament on your tree, you'll be reminded of those magical memories from your vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. It's like a little moment in time, captured forever among the twinkling lights and other cherished ornaments.

    My good friend Kaitlin, the super sleuth that she is, spoke to a Cast Member to get an answer to your question. If you did not purchase the particular PhotoPass picture you'd like to use, you can still order a gift through the Photo Gifts website. These items are printed and made by a third party who will remove the watermark before they print it. Since you don't own the picture, you will not be able to see it without the watermark (even in the preview), but when you receive the item, the watermark won't be there!

    If you're looking for some other great Disney items for the holiday season, be sure to check out the shopDisney website. I've done some damage on this website recently and it's the next best thing to to shopping at the resort merchandise locations. Just be sure to check the shipping deadlines to ensure it arrives in time for the holidays!

    If you have any other questions, please reach out directly to me and I'd be happy to answer them!

    Just remember the memories that show us the power of love,
