One of my favorite activities at the conclusion of a vacation is to look at all of my vacation photos! Thankfully, Walt Disney World is helping us all out by providing their own photo service to guests. Disney has a program called PhotoPass; you will see PhotoPass photographers all over the Disney Parks (including the major icons and most character meets) and in some resort restaurants. There are also several attractions that feature “ride photos” or even videos!

Whenever your photo is taken, the photo will be linked to your PhotoPass account through your magic band. Those without magic bands will receive a PhotoPass card with a special code that will be used to link your photos to your account. If you purchase Memory Maker, you may then download all of your photos to your computer.

Memory Maker includes:

  • Unlimited digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos
  • Select Attraction photos and videos
  • Select Character dining photos
  • Discounts on prints of your photos
  • Magic Shots – featuring Disney Characters and more, added to your photos
  • Digital borders and stickers to personalize your photos

Memory Maker is currently priced at $149 with advance purchase (at least 3 days prior to travel) or $169 for immediate activation (price subject to change at any time). Your PhotoPass account can collect photos from anyone on your friend’s list in My Disney Experience so this is an especially great offer for larger families or groups traveling together.

My family has purchased Memory Maker every year that we’ve traveled to Walt Disney World. Even on shorter vacations, we’ve always ended up with at least 100 photographs. Many times, these are the only photos that feature the entire family. The magic shots are cute and I just think it’s a great value. If you do not purchase Memory Maker, you are able to purchase individual shots or attraction photos though this cost can quickly add up. If you can make a point to stop whenever you see a photographer, I highly recommend this purchase.
