Congratulations on planning your first Walt Disney World Resort Vacation! Disney PhotoPass
offers several options to capture all of your memories during your vacation. There are PhotoPass Photographers located throughout Walt Disney World Resort who are available to take photos of your family. Memory Maker and Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc are two separate products available to guests, to purchase these photos but you are certainly not required to purchase either of these products. If you would like all of your photos you do not need to purchase both Disney Memory Maker
and Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc, one product is all you need. There are also several less expensive options to purchase a few photos individually.
Disney Memory Maker is the photo product that I would recommend to guests. My family and I used this product on a recent vacation, and I was surprised at how simple it actually is. With Disney Memory Maker, all of your photos - dining, attraction and other experiences will be added to your Memory Maker account using your MagicBand. You may stop and take as many photos as you wish with the PhotoPass photographers, and they are all included with Disney Memory Maker. When you arrive home, you will receive all of your photos in the form of digital downloads and you are free to share and print your photos however you wish. The major difference between Disney Memory Maker and Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc is that with Disney Memory Maker you will not receive a CD with all of your photos, however you are able to create your own CD once you have downloaded all of your images.
Please let me know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan. I would be happy to help in any way I can.
