    Hello, I was wondering if the Memory Maker Photo Pass was worth it? If we end up not doing the memory maker, can we still have our pictures taken and purchase them after our trip?

    Hello Hayden and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First things first- yes, you can have your pictures taken by a PhotoPass photographer to view and possibly purchase later. However, my family always buys the Memory Maker, and I have never regretted that decision.

    When you have Memory Maker, you will tend to have your photo taken by Disney's PhotoPass Photographers whenever it is convenient. This will result in you having access to many images when your trip is over. It also allows you to do some silly poses and different configurations of family members that you might not do if you felt constrained by the number of photos you could get later. One trip, our middle daughter who was 18 at the time, made it a goal to have her picture taken by herself near a trash can whenever she was out of eyeshot of the rest of the family. Imagine our surprise when we logged in to view our trip photos and found this hilarious array of trash can shots!  Also, one of my favorite Disney photos ever was taken initially as a joke. We gathered in front of the Magic Kingdom on our way out on our final day. We all posed in the most dramatic and sad way possible. It made for an unforgettable and hilarious photo. The photo is so awesome that one of our daughters made it into her Visa debit card!  

    I hope that you will add Memory Maker to your vacation plans and that you will cherish the memories you capture through photos.

    See ya real soon!
