    Question about memory maker, do they just scan your magic band when there is a photo op in park and then it links it. Is it worth getting if I'm only at park 2 days? Do they also take photos at the resorts or just in park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer! 

    Don't forget to pack those magical smiles, because with the Memory Maker Product, you'll receive digital downloads of ALL your pixie-dusted photos, including "Magic Shots," attraction photos, and character dining photos. You'll also be able to edit your pictures to include a variety of borders and stickers.

    The best part, with the My Disney Experience Mobile App, available for your smartphone, you'll have access to your photos within just a few hours of having them taken. You can customize, download, and share right from your phone - just make sure the PhotoPass Photographer scans your MagicBand after each session. Your MagicBand will be the "link" between you and your photos auto-magically being added to your My Disney Experience Account. Make sure to purchase Memory Maker at least three days prior to your arrival to receive the advanced purchase price and ensure your account is ready upon arrival. 

    Your Memory Maker Package will include any photo taken by a PhotoPass Photographer at locations within the theme parks and Disney Springs. Occasionally there are photographers in the Resort hotels, but it's not always guaranteed, it's generally only during the holidays. 

    Here is a tip to help you decide if it's worth the cost:
    • A single PhotoPass Photo download is $14.95 - so you would need to have at least 11 photos taken to "break even" which will be easy to do, even in two days, as long as you are making a conscience effort to stop for photos. 

    I hope this is helpful for you, Jennifer! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help put a smile on your face as you continue planning.
