    We'll be staying off-property for our Disney World Vacation, but we're considering buying the memory maker. Does everyone in our party need a magic band or can we use one magic band for all our photos?

    Hi April,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad that you stopped by for help with your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I see that your trip is just a few short weeks away, and I hope that you're counting down the days to all of the magic and fun! SO EXCITING!

    With Memory Maker, you'll be able to relive all of your favorite Disney moments for years to come. My family loves looking back through our photos and videos from past trips, and I really think that you'll love having the ability to view, share, and download all of the photos that are captured during your visit. While you may use a MagicBand, park ticket, annual pass, or even a Disney PhotoPass card (that can be given to you by any one of the PhotoPass photographers) to link the photos that Disney PhotoPass photographers capture to your account, there are select attractions where the only way to capture the photos and videos are with a MagicBand. If you'd like to make sure you capture those photos, too, you will want to have at least one MagicBand within your group, and possibly more depending upon your group size. For example, at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, there are cameras and video cameras strategically placed throughout the attraction, and each shot will capture the four Guests in one mine train car. If you want to make sure that everyone's photo is captured, you'll want to have at least one MagicBand per mine train car.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip, April. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
