    We will be staying at the all star movie resort from March 13-19,2018 Can I buy in advance the memory maker or will it expire if I don't use it soon after I purchase it?

    Hi, Estrella! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    During our last family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, we took almost 500 Disney Photopass photos and now have some lasting memories to cherish forever, I simply can’t say enough about the Memory Maker Service! You can positively purchase Memory Maker in advance to benefit from the advanced purchase discount! As long as you purchase the service three (3) days before you first start snapping photos, you will qualify for the special rate. Once you are ready to activate it, you can do so through your My Disney Experience mobile app, or on a desktop or laptop on your My Disney Experience Account. During our last visit, I actually totally forgot how to activate it and when I looked at my Disney PhotoPass photos, they all had watermarks (Disney PhotoPass symbols all over). I made a quick stop at Guest Relations in Magic Kingdom Park and they were able to remind me that I had to activate my Memory Maker service. If you see watermarks when and you know that you have purchased Memory Maker, this is probably the case for you as well. Don’t forget to download your photos as they do expire 45 days from the date they were taken. Your Memory Maker purchase will not expire until you have used the service. 

    Since you are visiting in March, I just want to take a quick moment to talk about the 2018 Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival! I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious outdoor kitchens! We typically think that the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is the place to be for great eats, but this Springtime festival is definitely snack worthy!

    Have a picture perfect vacation!
