    I have reservations at the Boardwalk in November. I have not purchased my park tickets yet, but I want to surprise my girlfriend with the memory maker for the holidays. Can you purchase he memory maker before you purchase the tickets, and then link them?

    Hey, Jason! What a wonderful surprise you have planned for your girlfriend! You are sure to have many great pictures by the end of your vacation, so I am glad you are thinking of purchasing Memory Maker. There are hundreds of locations across Walt Disney World Resort where you will find Disney's PhotoPass photographers. By purchasing Memory Maker, you will not have to narrow down which pictures were your favorites - you will get to download them all! You will even have access to on-ride photos and videos. These are super fun, especially ones that capture that thrilling drop through the Briar Patch on Splash Mountain!

    You do not have to purchase theme park tickets before your Memory Maker purchase. They can both be linked to your My Disney Experience account at any time before your vacation. I do want to encourage you to purchase your theme park tickets well before it is time to make FastPass+ selections. Since you will be staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of your check-in date. Mark that date on your calendar so you can also surprise your girlfriend with some pretty fantastic FastPass+ choices!

    Jason, when you do link the Memory Maker purchase to your My Disney Experience account, make sure that your girlfriend is added to your Family & Friends List and that you both check the box in your profiles that allows for Sharing of PhotoPass Photos. This will ensure that, even though the Memory Maker is linked to your account, any pictures or videos that link to her MagicBand will also appear in your Memory Maker. I would hate for you two to miss any magical moment!
