    thinking of purchasing the memory maker. however, my daughter is only 2 and there will be a total of 3 of us. i also do not think there will be a ton of rides she can do. so, I'm stuck if I should go ahead with the purchase or not. We have till June.

    Hi Alicia!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Memory Maker is one of favorite add-ons to my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. Memory Maker allows our family to have professional photographs of our entire family taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographers that capture the memories we made during our vacation. Here are the tips that I have found to making the most out of our Memory Maker purchase:
    1. Stop for lots of pictures: Disney PhotoPass photographers are located all over the theme parks. So our family stops often to take them. For example, while walking down Main Street, U.S.A. we will stop for a picture in front of Cinderella Castle, in front of the Partners statue, and from the side on the bridge to Tomorrowland. Each of those views will give you a unique set of angles and shots and with little ones, you never know when you will get the best smile.
    2. Character meet 'n' greets: Some of my favorite photographs from our trips have been the candid moments of my son meeting his favorite Characters. One of the Disney PhotoPass photographers captured my son giving Minnie Mouse the biggest hug on his last trip. With our kids, we try to meet as many of their favorites as possible and all of those special moments are captured with Memory Maker.
    3. Magic Shots: Be sure to ask your Disney PhotoPass photographer if they have a Magic Shot. This is a chance for your a surprise Disney character to be right in the picture with you!
    4. Downloads and copyright release: By purchasing Memory Maker, you will get unlimited downloads for all of the pictures you have taken and the copyright release for them. I like to use my pictures in a yearly calendar for my family!

    Finally, I would recommend taking advantage of the Advanced Purchase pricing by purchasing Memory Maker before your trip. Come back and see us if you have any other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
