Memory Maker - what is it?

Good evening everyone!

So Disney now has a new package add on that is featured FREE in one of the current promotions, called the Memory Maker.  What is it and how much is it are the usual questions when I tell people about the Memory Maker.  So here ya go!

Memory Maker is the NEW name of Disney's Photopass PLUS service.  It is basically the same except you now get your photos in the form of a digital download instead of hard copy (some restaurants) and on a Photopass CD.  That's really the only difference.  But what is Photopass Plus?

First - Photopass is a technically a free service offered throughout Disney.  You will see your friendly Disney Photopass photographers throughout the parks, restaurants, and at character meet and greets as, well as certain attractions.  They look something like this:

I say technically free because they don't charge you anything to take your photo and you can ask them to take some shots with your personal camera as well.

Second - the photographer or ride picture person will scan your card and your photos will be saved on your photo pass.  With the Memory Maker this is now all done with your Magic Band!  Super easy!!  Everything is then linked to your My Disney Experience.

With repurchasing Memory Maker you are buying the rights to all of your photos taken by photo pass photographers, etc.  This means you can go to Target or Snapfish or wherever you like to get photos printed out and have them printed for WAY less than Disney charges you.  Our last trip we had over 500 pictures!!  Magic shots are really cool and you can't get those with your personal camera.  It really is worth the $149 for a prepay.  If you start to add up the cost of getting all the photos individually you will see that it truly is a huge savings.  :-)
