Disney’s PhotoPass 101 - What You Need to Know
2. Your photos can be linked directly to your Disney account.
After the PhotoPass Photographer takes pictures of you and your family, he or she will then scan your MagicBand. This links those digital photos to your My Disney Experience account. It can take up to an hour for the photos to show up on your account. Once they are linked, you can view them via the My Disney Experienceapp or by visiting www.MyDisneyExperience.com. It’s great to be able to look back over your picture proofs at the end of your day in the parks and relive the magic all over again.
3. Memory Maker is amazing!
If you want to step up your PhotoPass game, you can purchase Disney’s Memory Maker. It’s a digital package that keeps all your family’s ride photos and PhotoPass photos from all over the Disney World Resort in one streamlined spot. Each time you enjoy a ride at which photos are taken by stationary cameras, those photos will be automatically added to your Disney account (at a few attractions, you will need to tap your MagicBand to the kiosk that corresponds with your photos), as will any photos taken of you and your family by Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers. The best time to purchase Memory Maker is before your trip so that your ride photos are uploaded from the first day of your trip. You can purchase the package during your trip, but the service is not retroactive, meaning that any ride photos taken before your purchase will not be available. And the best thing about Memory Maker is that the digital photos do not have proof watermarks over them—they are yours to import from the beginning! You can buy Memory Maker by calling (407) W-DISNEY or by visiting disneyworld.disney.go.com. The advance purchase price is $169, and the non-advance price is $199. Memory Maker is a must for your trip!
4. Passholders enjoy the benefits of Memory Maker at no cost.
If you are a Disney World Annual Passholder, Memory Maker is already included on your Disney account. There is no need to make a separate purchase of this fascinating digital package.
