    We recently purchased annual passes. One of the listed benefits is Photo Pass. How does this Photo Pass differ from Memory Maker? Thanks!

    Hi Tiffany!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Photo Pass and Memory Maker can be confusing at times so I'm happy you asked! Photo Pass is the service provided by Disney where Disney photographers (located at various spots throughout the Parks) take your photo and connect them to a Photo Pass card they will give to you or to your MagicBand. Photo Pass is available to all Walt Disney World Guests simply gives you these photos which can then be purchased individually, if you would like. Photo Pass downloads are included in the cost of an Annual Pass.

    Memory Maker, however, is an entire package of your photos in digital form which is linked to your My Disney Experience Account. You are allowed unlimited digital downloads which is a fantastic way to preserve every magical memory you make! You can also share one Memory Maker with everyone included on your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account which is a great perk. Keep in mind there is a charge for Memory Maker.

    I hope this helps! Please come back if we can do anything else to help you with your planning. Have a magical day!
