    Hi Mom's, We were just wandering, what is the difference between "PhotoPass" and the "Memmory Maker". Thanks in advance

    Hi, Sandi! The Disney PhotoPass service is a complimentary service available to all Guests. Disney PhotoPass photographers are located throughout Walt Disney World Resort to take your photo and scan your MagicBand to link the photos to your My Disney Experience account. If you do not have a MagicBand, the photos can be linked to a Disney PhotoPass card that can be provided to you. Once you are logged onto your account at the Disney PhotoPass website, you can enter the codes from all of your Disney PhotoPass cards to view your photos. Guests are welcome to purchase individual photos from their unforgettable vacation or even keepsakes that feature your photos, such as calendars or coffee mugs.

    For Guests interested in obtaining more than just a few photos, there is an enhancement to Disney PhotoPass called Memory Maker. Memory Maker is a photo package that includes digital copies of all the photos taken by PhotoPass photographers as well as attraction photos. Considering the number of opportunities available, my family always finds it beneficial to invest in the Memory Maker package. Sandi, If you are considering adding on Memory Maker to your upcoming vacation, you will definitely want to take advantage of the great Memory Maker Advance Purchase discount, which will still give you access to all of the pictures in your Disney PhotoPass account. One thing to note about this is that the Advance Purchase Memory Maker must be purchased at least three days in advance of your trip.

    I hope this helps explain the difference for you, Sandi. Please let me know if you have any other questions about Memory Maker. I hope you have a magical day!
