31. Memory Maker

Memory Maker is a separately purchased package at the Disney Resort which allows you to download unlimited PhotoPass photos taken by Disney photographers to your My Disney Experience account.  The package includes all photos taken by PhotoPass photographers, attraction photos, attraction videos, magic shots, and some character dining photos.   

32. Moderate Resort

Disney’s Moderate Resorts are the middle option when choosing the level of hotel accommodations that you would like to have.  They are less expensive than Deluxe resorts but typically offer more amenities, more dining options, and often better theming than the Value resorts.

33. Mousekeeping

Housekeeping at the Disney Resort hotels is referred to as “Mousekeeping”.

34. My Disney Experience

My Disney Experience is your online Disney account, where you can view and update your Disney vacation plans.  There is also an associated app for your smartphone that lets you make plans while on the move.

35. MyMagic+

MyMagic+ is the Disney program for planning your vacation that combines all the technology of My Disney Experience, FastPass+, MagicBands, and Memory Maker into one cohesive system.

36. Nighttime Spectacular

The lavish shows that take place at the end of a theme park’s operating day are called “nighttime spectaculars”.  They can include fireworks displays, pyrotechnics, water effects, animated projections, and accompanying music.

37. Off-Site / Off Property

Staying at a hotel that is not a Disney Resort hotel and located off Disney property.

38. On-Site / On Property

Staying at a Disney Resort hotel on Disney property, which grants the guests added perks such as transportation to the parks and Extra Magic Hours.

39. Park Hopper

A Magic Your Way ticket add-on that allows a guest to visit more than one theme park in the same day for an additional cost.

40. PhotoPass

A Disney PhotoPass allows you to have pictures taken by Disney photographers, and then view and download them online.  A PhotoPass card issued by the photographer used to be the only way to keep track of the photos, but now guests can use their MagicBand instead of a card.
