    Read about the MM and I am very confused. I have a My Disney Experience account and we want to buy the MM in advance, but if the MM takes effect 3 days after you purchase it how can you purchase it months in advance without it expiring?

    Hey, Marilee! I am so glad you stopped by with your question so we can help clear this up for you. Walt Disney World Resort does offer a great incentive for Guests to purchase Memory Maker before their trips begin. Currently, you can save $20 if you head to this link to purchase this fantastic vacation addition. 

    When purchasing Memory Maker at the Advance Purchase price, any Disney PhotoPass pictures taken within the next three days after your purchase will not be eligible for inclusion in your Memory Maker entitlement. You will be happy to know that your Memory Maker will not officially activate until you download one of your pictures from the Disney PhotoPass website. So, this means you could purchase Memory Maker any time from now and until three days before your first Disney PhotoPass picture and you will not miss a single unforgettable moment! Even if your trip is planned a year from now, you can still take advantage of this great offer without worrying if it will expire.

    Each Disney PhotoPass picture that you take will remain in your account for 45 days before it expires. You can begin downloading your pictures anytime within those 45 days, and your Memory Maker entitlement will then be activated when that first download occurs. From the point of your first download, you have 30 days to complete edits and download all of the pictures that you wish to keep.

    I hope this information makes the picture more clear for you, Marilee. Please let us know if you have any other questions about this. Have a magical day!
