    We purchased the memory maker as a part of our vacation, but I'm a little confused about what we need to do when we would like a picture taken at a attraction. I also thought that there are special pictures that have characters photoshopped in?

    Hi Wendy,

    Your vacation is just around the corner. Are you ready?

    With Disney's PhotoPass Service you no longer need to worry about carrying bulky cameras or not being in the shot. The Disney PhotoPass Photographers can do all the work for you, and all you'll need to do is show your best smile. And Memory Maker lets you bring all of your memories back home by letting you download all the pictures and movies taken for one low price. This includes attraction photos and videos, and Magic Shots. There's nothing better than being sprinkled with Pixie Dust by Tinker Bell, when you stand in front of Cinderella Castle. Or watching a video of you zipping by Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

    So what do you need to do? Simply spot one of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers, which are readily available throughout all of the Theme Parks and let them take a picture. Ask them for Magic Shots, and later be surprised. For attraction pictures, simply scan your MagicBand or Theme Park Ticket at the end of the ride. Note that some attraction photos and videos are only accessible with a MagicBand.

    Don't forget to activate Memory Maker once you arrive, which you can easily do within the My Disney Experience mobile app, and then you'll be able to share your memories right from your phone. You can also wait until you get home to download all of them, however remember that pictures do expire after 45 days of being taken.

    See you real soon!
