    I will be traveling with two other groups to Disney World in a few weeks and we are linked in Family & Friends. If i buy memory maker now but the other groups arrive two days before me, will the photos they take still show up in my memory maker?

    Say cheese, Mark!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this picture-perfect question! I absolutely love using the Memory Maker service, as they truly know how to capture and immortalize the magic of your Disney vacation. One of my all-time favourite pictures taken by a PhotoPass Cast Member was the last time I met Merida in the parks. You can tell by my huge smile that she is my favourite princess, and these pictures always warm my heart. 

    When it comes to downloading your magical portraits, you can download the photos of your Family & Friends List members, but only those taken within your PhotoPass window. If you purchased Disney's Memory Maker in advance at the reduced rate, this means your window will start three days after your Memory Maker was purchased, and it will be active until 30 days after your first photo was taken. Consequently, whether or not you will be able to download the other groups' photos depends on when your Memory Maker has been purchased. If you were to buy it three days before your arrival, or only a day before their arrival, this would be too late to download their pictures. Once you are ready to download your photos, I highly recommend using the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can download your photos online on the PhotoPass website, but I love that the app allows you to download them directly onto your phone. Therefore, the mobile app makes it that much easier to share those pictures with other parties.

    Something else I would recommend doing before coming to the Walt Disney World Resort is familiarizing yourself with the map on your My Disney Experience mobile app. Indeed, this app shows much more than just wait times for all your favourite attractions! If you click on the arrow at the top of your screen, you will be able to click on "PhotoPass" and view all the PhotoPass locations around the theme parks. Some also offer "Magic Shots," where extra magic will appear in your photos. Some of the newest additions include the Super Zoom Magic Shots, which show a wide view and zoom directly on your party in the park, and the 360 Tiny World Magic Shots. I got to try the 360 Magic Shot at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and it is truly adorable!

    I hope this was helpful, Mark, and that you and your loved ones will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please feel free to reach out. We can-only help! Get it?

    Have a magical day, and make sure to practice your best smile!
