    Greetings Edwin, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for your question!

    There's nothing more magical than combining a visit to Walt Disney World Resort with a voyage on Disney Cruise Line. We like to bookend our vacations with Cinderella Castle and sand castles!

    While in WDW, your Magic Band is an all-in-one device that allows access to your hotel room, theme parks, FastPass+ and more. You can use your band to charge food and merchandise to your room, and also to link your photos to your My Disney Experience account.

    Memory Maker is a great way to capture all of your best vacation memories - with everyone in the picture! When you purchase Memory Maker, you'll have access to all of the photos taken of your travel party by Disney PhotoPass photographers. You'll also receive your ride photos, so make sure to smile as you plummet down Splash Mountain - the picture is yours to keep!

    While Magic Bands and Memory Maker are awesome additions to the Walt Disney Resort experience, they will not connect in any way to your cruise. When you board the ship, you'll be issued a Key to the World card that serves basically the same purposes as a Magic Band. (opens your stateroom door, and can be used for onboard purchases.) Disney Cruise Line gives you the option to pre-purchase photography packages, but they will not be linked to your Memory Maker from the theme parks. You can find out more about onboard photography services here.

    Maybe someday the Magic Band and Memory Maker technology will connect with Disney Cruise Line, but for now they stand alone. I hope this information helps! Have a magical day!  - Diane W.
