    Our 1st trip to WDW is in Jan. I've been looking into the photo pass options. Photo Pass+ no longer available at WDW. Is the Photo Pass Archive CD still an option? What is the difference between purchasing the CD and the new Memory Maker option?

    Hi, Laura!  The biggest difference is the inclusion of the CD.  With the new Memory Maker, you will have to pay an extra $30 for the CD, however, you will have unlimited digital downloads of your photos for up to 45 days with the Memory Maker.  You will be automatically linked to your photographs virtually as soon as they are taken, as opposed to when you get home from your vacation.  

    You will still have photo editing options, including adding borders and stickers to your photos, and you don't need a PhotoPass card anymore, either!  You will be using your Magic Band to link anyone on your reservation to your Memory Maker photos.  This is great news for families that like to spread out at the theme parks.  It saves you from having to coordinate everyone's PhotoPass cards at the end of your trip.

    I hope this answers your question.  I think it looks like a much more convenient way to capture those vacation memories!
