    Hi There, My family will be visiting Thanksgiving week and I am on the fence about whether to buy the memory maker or not. Is it really worth the cost? Can I purchase copies of pics I want instead of buying the memory maker?

    Welcome to planDisney, Rebekah! Thank you so much for sending this excellent question our way. 

    I purchase Memory Maker for every one of our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. I have so many treasured family memories Disney PhotoPass photographers have captured for me throughout the years. To me, these frozen moments in time are priceless. 

    There are several different Memory Maker options to help you make the right decision for your Walt Disney World Resort visit. You can purchase the Memory Maker product at a discount as long as you buy it three days before it is activated. Keep in mind; Memory Maker is a non-refundable product. Suppose you end up not purchasing Memory Maker in advance. In that case, you may buy Memory Maker at the full price once you return home and see how many unforgettable memories were captured (for a week-long visit, my family once had over 300 photos). If there is only one day where you had numerous photos taken that you would like to download, there is also a one-day memory maker option. And, of course, you may download one picture at a set price. However, with the current pricing of $16.95 per download (always subject to change), if you download and pay for just five individual photos taken on the same day, it will cost more than the one-day pricing. You can quickly see what a savings the Memory Maker Advanced Purchase will be!

    Rebekah, it is essential to be mindful of the Memory Maker expiration policy. You will want to be sure you download those memories before they start to disappear at the stroke of midnight, 45 days from when your first photo was taken. Be sure to review the Memory Maker Terms & Conditions for more details. 

    Please revisit us soon with any other questions you may have regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit! 

    Have a magical day, Rebekah!
