Memory Maker Allows Guests to Download Unlimited Digital Photos at Walt Disney World Resort

The Walt Disney World Resort recently unveiled another option for guests when it comes to viewing and purchasing photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers.

The new option is called Memory Maker and it's 100 percent digital. Memory Maker allows guests to download unlimited digital photos of Disney PhotoPass pictures, without having to purchase the photos individually.

Guests who purchase Memory Maker will receive digital copies of all their PhotoPass photos for one price ($149 if purchased at least three days before a Walt Disney World vacation, or $199 if purchased in the parks or resorts).

Unlike the original PhotoPass option where guests received a CD with their photos after their trip is complete the digital downloads in Memory Maker are available immediately and photos can be viewed, downloaded, and shared as often as guests want, provided the photos are still in the guest's My Disney Experience account.

But just like with PhotoPass pictures, the Memory Maker photos will have a 45 day expiration period, after which no more photos can be downloaded.

You can find more information about Memory Maker here.

Longer time for pictures would be better. Can the pics be edited like photo pass?

I don't know that we would use this. The cost is quite high We would be more likely to if the pre-trip cost was $99 at the most.

I prefer the CD option. I want my pictures to be available to download forever.

Andy - I'm not sure, the source material didn't say.

Valerie - Yes - I do believe that the photos can be edited. The big difference here is that you don't get a physical CD and only have a limited time to download them.

I'm confused -- are there two options (PhotoPass as well as Memory Maker)? I was booking a trip via DisneyWorld cast member today and they informed me PhotoPass was no more, and that it was replaced with Memory Maker. However, I see that both are present on Disney's site. Are they simply phasing it out prior to this summer? Regardless, I think the price of either is well worth it. I will love every second of watching my kids' interactions as opposed to missing those moments while trying to capture all the shots on my own.

Hi Becky!

I believe that the purchase of a PhotoPass CD is being phased out and replaced with MemoryMaker, however because some CD packages have already been purchased it is not entirely gone.

Okay, thanks! :) It is a bummer that the Memory Maker will not have the stock photos as Photo Pass did, but still a good buy in my mind!

Once I download my photos, will I have full access to them forever or is there any expiration date?

Hi Carlos!

There is an expiration date for the server storage - Disney doesn't hold them onto them forever. However once you download them to your own computer, they are yours forever.

So with memory maker you pay one price, download as many pics as you want and they are yours forever?

Catt - Once you download them they are yours forever, however there is a limited amount of time that you have to download them.
