Five Reasons To Use Disney’s Memory Maker
Whether it’s your first trip or you’ve gone before, Walt Disney World’s Memory Maker program is a must. A Disney vacation can get expensive, but Memory Maker should definitely be in the budget! While the advantages of Memory Maker are endless, I have narrowed it down to the main pros of the program!
Everyone Makes The Photo
One of the biggest issues of vacation photos is trying to make a group shot happen. Whether you’re trying to work with the self timer on the camera or waiting for a stranger to walk by and agree to take the photo, it’s always more of a headache than necessary. With Memory Maker, everyone in the group can pose for the shot! Disney Photopass photographers are happy to take those group pictures that your party will cherish for years to come.
One of my favorite features of the Memory Maker program is that it also includes your ride photos during your trip. Before Memory Maker, your only option for obtaining these photos is paying for the prints. The minimum package pricing for ride photos is around $15. With the Memory Maker program, you pay one flat rate for unlimited ride photos!
The cost of the advanced purchase Memory Maker package is a flat rate of $149. While this fee may seem steep, you have to take into consideration all that the program includes. On my average 5-Day Disney trips, I take a minimum of 300 photos during that period of time. With Photopass locations all over the parks and no cap on how many photos you can take, the photo possibilities are endless!
Once you’ve purchased Memory Maker, you’re given several ways to view and download your photos. At the end of your trip, you can visit your My Disney Experience profile and download your entire album. Disney gives you the freedom to send those downloads to get printed, just like you would for your family camera! Want access to the photos immediately? By using your My Disney Experience app, you can view and download your photos straight to your phone. This is a great way to pass the time while waiting in long lines.
Posed photos are nice, but Disney takes Memory Maker to the next level with Magic Photo opportunities. Based on your location in the different parks, there are unique Magic Photos available to take. In the moment, you’re given posing directions, but you have no idea what the magic touch will be. It’s fun to check your photos later and see what character or Disney touch made an appearance in your vacation photos.
Memory Maker has definitely become one of my favorite parts of my vacations to Walt Disney World. This tool is perfect for any vacation situation whether you’re an annual passholder or a first time visitor! Between food, tickets, transportation, and hotels, don’t forget to include Memory Maker as a part of your trip to Walt Disney World. You won’t regret all the extra memories you’ll make!
