    In the past, we have always purchased the Photo Pass CD when we got back home. What's the difference between Photo Pass and Photo Pass +? Should I buy before we go? Do photographers scan MagicBands now or still a card? If MagicBands, do all family's work?

    Hello Nikki!

    I'm very happy to hear you are planning your next Walt Disney World vacation and honored you have stopped back by the Moms Panel to allow us to help in the fun.

    Recently, Disney has replaced the PhotoPass+ service with the new Memory Maker service.  This service still allows you to use the wonderful PhotoPass photographers to capture your vacation memories and conveniently save them all to one place.  Instead of receiving your photos on a disc after your vacation, you now will receive them digitally.  Beyond the benefit of ensuring no one in your party is stuck behind the camera, this service also allows you the convenience of connecting the members in your travel party to one account.  Therefore, if your party splits up, you will still be able to capture the different experiences and save them all to the same place, never missing a moment of your vacation. Another benefit is the ability to swipe your Magic Bands with the photographers to save pictures as well as using the traditional PhotoPass cards.  

    Visit the About Memory Maker page to learn more and to pre-purchase, should you decide this service is right for you.  I know you'll have a wonderful vacation, filled with memories you'll cherish forever.  We are always here should you need anything else, so feel free to ask.

    Magical Wishes,
