    I purchased annual platinum passes for me and my wife, in years past the photo service (photo pass or memory maker, not sure difference) was included is it still included for 2020?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chris!  We are glad you brought your question to us today.

    I am also a Platinum Annual Passholder, and for me, the perks and benefits really add value.

    Not only do Annual Passholders receive a full year of admission to all four Walt Disney World theme parks, they are also entitled to discounts on dining, merchandise, recreation, and more.  From time to time there are some great Annual Passholder discounts on Disney Resort Hotel stays, and Annual Passholders receive complimentary standard theme park parking.

    I am happy to let you know that downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos captured during the time your pass is active are included with your Platinum Annual Pass.  I agree - the distinction between PhotoPass and Memory Maker is a bit confusing, as they are closely related.  Think of Disney PhotoPass as the service that captures your on-ride photos, as well as photos captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  Photos may be purchased individually as prints, photo products, or downloads.  All Guests are welcome to use Disney PhotoPass service, whether or not they purchase Memory Maker.  Memory Maker is the name of the entitlement that allows Guests to download all their Disney PhotoPass photos within a certain time frame for one price.  Think of Memory Maker as a photo download package.  Because photo downloads are included with your Platinum Annual Pass, there is no need for you to purchase Memory Maker.

    I hope that helps!  Be sure to check out the Annual Passholder updates page.  Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We welcome you to visit the Moms Panel again anytime.
