    I am staying on Disney property. My daughter is going down a week earlier but not staying on Disney property. Will she be able to take advantage of my Memory Maker before I arrive OR do I need to assign it to her OR should she buy it?

    Hi Nancy!  You are really going to enjoy Disney's Memory Maker  photo service.  I have used this service on two separate trips and have really enjoyed how simple and easy it is to capture, download and share my vacation memories with all my friends and family.   I hope your family enjoys it as much as I have.

    Your daughter certainly can use your Memory Maker before you arrive at Walt Disney World.  Your Memory Maker will be "redeemed" once you download your first photo.  Once you have downloaded your first picture, you will have 30 more days to capture  additional memories.  Photographs will stay in your account for 45 days after they are taken, so as long as you begin your download before any pictures have expired, you will have no problem using Memory Maker over a period of a few weeks.  

    Please make sure your daughter is linked in your My Disney Experience as a friend and family member, and that she has enabled photo sharing.   This will allow any photos that she has taken to be seen in your Memory Maker account.   Since she is not staying on property, she can choose to purchase a MagicBand when she arrives at Walt Disney World and have photos added by touching the MagicBand, or she can have Disney PhotoPass photographers add pictures to a PhotoPass card.  You can add the PhotoPass card numbers to your Memory Maker account anytime before they expire.   

    I encourage you to check out the Memory Maker Frequently Asked Questions page, which is a treasure trove of knowledge about this fun new service.   Enjoy your time at Walt Disney World making memories with your family.
