    Hey Diane-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Do you know the one thing missing from a majority of my photos of my Walt Disney World Resort trips over the years? Yep … me! With Memory Maker I am able to be in the photos with my family because I leave the photography to Disney. Memory Maker utilizes the Disney PhotoPass service and is a way of buying every photo made by a Disney PhotoPass photographer before you step foot in Walt Disney World Resort. When traveling with groups, as long as your Family and Friends are linked to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able see and download their pictures. Memory Maker lasts for 30 days and begins once the first Disney PhotoPass photo is made and recorded through a MagicBand, PhotoPass Card or Theme Park ticket card linked to your My Disney Experience account.

    Memory Maker will need to be purchased 3 days before your first photo to ensure all your special moments will be captured. Purchasing early currently saves you $30. I love that you can instantly see your magical memories online and have 45 days to download them. These photos may be magically decorated with stickers, borders and character signatures through Disney PhotoPass website. We find Memory Maker easy, convenient have hundreds of great photos and videos from our trips.

    You may purchase a MagicBand at anytime and link it to your Disney account online or in person at Guest Relations. This is the easy part. The hard part will be deciding which one to use.

    Disney Dad Tip: Please don't miss out on Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It is silly spooktacular fun!

    Diane, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
