    Trying to figure out if getting the mem package is reallt worth it. Which rides do you get pictures on? Through out the parks where do you get pictures taken? My husband feel taking his camera will work well enough.

    Hi Nicole!

    I am a huge fan of Memory Maker.  We just got back from a Walt Disney World vacation and I have over 200 pictures in my Memory Maker account.  There are PhotoPass photographers located all over each Walt Disney World park as well as some restaurants and even Downtown Disney.  We had a photographer take our picture with Stitch at our 'Ohana breakfast last week.  Most character experiences will have a photo opportunity as well.  You will walk past at least 6 PhotoPass photographers at the Magic Kingdom before you reach Cinderella Castle.  

    Why do I LOVE Memory Maker?  It gives my whole family the opportunity to be in the photos instead of Mom or Dad getting left out.  I also wouldn't want close-up "selfies" for all of my vacation photos.  

    Another great perk is that the photographers don't just snap one posed photo and you're done.  They take photos of the kid's faces as they're walking up to the characters, hugging characters, talking with characters, close-ups, framed shots, prop shots and even "magic shots" where you'll find a little extra magic in your photo when you view it in your account.

    You will have the ability to edit every photo in your account as well as add frames, character signatures and special stamps.  

    Did you ask about ride photos?  They're included!  Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock 'n Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, Dinosaur and Test Track are the participating attractions.  As a bonus, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror include yourselves in a ride video and they are so very cool!

    My husband used to discourage PhotoPass and Memory Maker, but he now sees the value in it and the beautiful high quality photos we get after our Walt Disney World vacations.

    Have a magical day!
