Making memories. Making memories. Taking pictures is making memories.
I love that song, and it’s fitting for today because Walt Disney World is rolling out a brand new way of making memories with its Memory Maker package. Part of the MyMagic+ system, this new offering will allow guests to collect, view, download, and share all of their Walt Disney World vacation photos that are linked to My Disney Experience. This system will contain the exact same access to photographs that was once available with Disney’s PhotoPass+, with the main difference being that this system is all digital.
Memory Maker will allow for unlimited downloading of photographs from the My Disney Experience portal. Guests can do this starting from the date the photos were taken until their expiration, which will be 45 days later. Disney’s PhotoPass+ will no longer be sold now that this new evolutionary version is available.
It sure seems like this new system will be easy to use. While guests are getting their photographs taken by a Disney’s PhotoPass photographer, they will simply have to touch their MagicBand or Memory Maker card to a device the photographer uses. In addition, guests will be able to link on-ride attraction photos at the counter where they can currently be viewed. For a new perk, guests will be able to download photos in My Disney Experience that their friends and family have taken as long as they are “connected” through My Disney Experience.
Memory Maker can be purchased either online or by phone prior to arriving at the resort. It can be added to a vacation package or utilized as a stand alone purchase. The new system can also be purchased at some merchandise and Disney’s PhotoPass sales locations at all four Walt Disney World theme parks and at Downtown Disney. For each Memory Maker purchase, guests have 30 day window in which to take photographs.
Guests who have already purchased Disney’s PhotoPass+ will have the option to keep it, or they can return it and purchase Memory Maker instead.
