NOTE: Some experiences & photo locations may not be available during reopening phases. Not all character dining restaurants are currently open.
Disney’s Memory Maker can now be added to your Walt Disney World vacation package. No need to worry about pre-purchasing in time to get the pre-purchase price. *As part of your package it will be subject to Disney’s package terms & conditions & cancellation policy.
“Memory Maker” combines photos taken by the PhotoPass photographers, attraction photos and any of your own photos linked to your My Disney Experience account. Photos will be available the day they are taken and can be accessed for 45 days. Photos can be downloaded an unlimited amount of times during your stay and for 45 days after.
IMPORTANT: Some attraction photos & videos can only be added to your My Disney Experience account if you have a MagicBand. You can purchase your MagicBand at a discounted rate when you book a Walt Disney World vacation package or you can buy them at the Disney Stores in the parks or online.
UPDATE: Disney Magic Mobile does have the ability to add attraction photos to your Memory Maker. However, bluetooth must be enabled, your phone must not be dead & it is not always reliable.
With the addition of Disney PhotoPass on the My Disney Experience mobile app, you now have easier access to your Walt Disney World® Resort memories.
The new update allows you to preview all your Disney PhotoPass vacation photos, including photos from select attraction and dining locations.
Forget about having to purchase each photo individually—you can get digital copies of them all.
Setting up and using Memory Maker is a snap. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be ready for a photo finish:
1. Link Memory Maker to your My Disney Experience account. If you purchased online, it may have been linked automatically.
2. Add people to your Family & Friends list to enable you to view and download their photos.
3. Capture unlimited photos at hundreds of Disney PhotoPass locations—and select attraction and dining locations—throughout Walt Disney World Resort; as well as attraction videos at select locations.
4. View and download your photos. Once you download the first photo, you have 30 days to capture more photos. Photos remain in your account for 45 days after they are taken.
