    I purchased Memory Maker with my tickets and will pick them up at Will Call. What I am not understanding is do i also need to get a Photopass card as well? Should I go to one of the parks to pick everything up the day I arrive?

    Hi Kimberly!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Hopefully these steps will sum up how Memory Maker works in a nutshell.

    1. Link Memory Maker to your Disney account. If you purchased online, it may have been linked automatically. 
    2. Add people to your Family & Friends list to enable you to view and download their photos. 
    3. Capture unlimited photos at hundreds of Disney PhotoPass locations—and select attraction and dining locations—throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Link each photo to your Disney account with a touch of your MagicBand, Memory Maker card, park admission card or Disney PhotoPass Card. 
    4. View and download your photos. Once you download the first photo, you have 30 days to capture more photos. Photos remain in your account for 45 days after they are taken.

    So what you will receive at Will Call is a Memory Maker card. You should be able to already add Memory Maker to your My Disney Experience Account, so essentially you do not have to pick up the card right away if it is already linked to you. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then all you need is your MagicBand when you start capturing all your wonderful Disney memories on camera. Find any Disney PhotoPass photographer and say, "Mickey!" If you are staying at a non-Disney hotel, then you will need your Memory Maker card. You can also use PhotoPass cards, but you will have to manually link those to your account later.

    I hope that answers your question! You can also visit Memory Maker Frequently Asked Questions for more answers. I wish you a magical, fantastical vacation!
