    Hello! We will have our first family trip to Disney World next month. We are staying off property, but plan to purchase memory maker. Do you recommend purchasing a magic wristband as well? Thank you

    Hi Gretchen, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you will be enjoying the magic of a Walt Disney World vacation next month. I am so happy to hear that you are making use of the Memory Maker to receive unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos. There are so many excellent opportunities to make use of the Disney PhotoPass; with photographers found in so many great locations throughout the parks, photos that catch those smiling faces while you are enjoying various attractions, and Character Greeting photographs. You won’t want to miss out on those precious memories. 

    Although you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort, you will still find the MagicBand an invaluable tool while on your vacation, as it links directly to your My Disney Experience account. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend that you download the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can use the MagicBand for entry into the parks and for all of your FastPass+ selections by linking your park tickets in your My Disney Experience account. You will then simply walk up to the park entry point or FastPass+ entry point and tap the MagicBand on the sensor. The MagicBand also works in place of your PhotoPass card, allowing your photos to be sent directly to your My Disney Experience account with just a tap of the band. You can purchase MagicBands online, from the shopDisney app, or at select Walt Disney World shops and at other retail locations. 

    I hope that you have an incredible vacation and your Memory Maker captures all of the magic you experience!
