    Help I need to know if you purchase memory maker after your magic bands shipped do you have to do something to the bands so they can just swip them to get the pictures? My magic bands are scheduled to ship in a few days

    Hi Tammy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. If your MagicBands will be shipping soon, then your trip isn't too far away and I'm sure you are counting down the number of "sleeps" until your magical vacation. MagicBands are such a fantastic addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they give you access to many of your vacation essentials with just the touch of your wrist. Since MagicBands are linked to your My Disney experience account, they will give you access to all of the entitlements in your My Disney Experience account, including theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation and your Disney dining plan, if you will be using one.

    You will also have access to any photos from you own MagicBand, as well as photos of the members of your Friends & Family List, which can be downloaded with Memory Maker. Be sure that all members of your Friends & Family List who manage their own My Disney Experience accounts have given you authorization to view and purchase their Disney PhotoPass photos. They can allow this option by navigating to their Friends & Family List and editing the preferences of your My Disney Experience connection. Keep in mind that while anyone from your Friends & Family List can add photos, the person who purchased Memory Maker is the only one who can actually download them using the Memory Maker purchase. But once downloaded, the limited license agreement will allow you to share your photos with your group.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
