    I purchased Memory Maker in 2015 which included stock photos. I understand I have to purchase the USB separately now to obtain the stock photos. How often are the stock photos updated with new shots?

    Hi ya Julie!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! Each and every time my family visits the Walt Disney World Resort we always purchase Memory Maker! Photos are such a great keepsake and I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to appreciate all the memories that were captured by Disney PhotoPass Service. They probably will also laugh at the fact that their mom is crying in half of them. I can’t help it, seeing them hug the Characters gets me everytime!

    The Disney PhotoPass Archive USB and the Memory Maker Archive Disc, both include 400 high-resolution images that feature favorite Walt Disney World scenes, locations, and familiar Characters. After speaking with a Cast Member, I was told that the included photos are a few years old and they are not sure when newer ones will be added. Honestly though, just having my family’s precious memories already downloaded and saved on a USB is perfect for me. Funny story, I actually spent hours trying to download them all to a USB myself this past spring, before discovering that I could have just purchased them on a USB. Now that I know that, I will always just purchase the USB, especially since we usually end up with hundreds of photos after our trips!

    Don’t forget to visit the Disney PhotoPass Studio on your next trip to Walt Disney World Resort. No reservation is needed for family photos on a perfectly hand selected backdrop! You can also choose from a variety of virtual Disney shots using the green-screen technique. This photo experience is included in an active Memory Maker package so be sure to take advantage of the many more photos you can add to your My Disney Experience account!

    Say cheese!
