    Can you please explain the difference between Photo Pass and Memory Maker? I find it very confusing. Will there be a photographer at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for the princess breakfast at Epcot? Please and thank you!

    You have asked a great question, Ashley, and one that we often see. Memory Maker is a product that you can purchase that includes all of your photos taken by Disney PhotoPass Service. Here's how it works:

    As you tour around the Walt Disney World Resort, you will use the complimentary Disney PhotoPass Service to collect your photos. PhotoPass photographers are located a various locations throughout theme parks, water parks and select attractions offer ride photos and videos. You will even find a PhotoPass photographer at the entrance of most Character Dining experiences, such as Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. To "collect" your photos, you can scan a PhotoPass Card or your MagicBand and your photos magically appear in your My Disney Experience account.  

    Photos can be purchased individually, but a better value is to purchase Memory Maker. You get all of your vacation memories for one price. Once you activate the purchase, you have an unlimited number of downloads for 30 days. I like to add fun borders and make edits before I download the photos. You will also receive a copyright release in case you would like to print your photos outside of your home. Keep in mind that attraction videos are only available with a Memory Maker purchase. I love to take advantage of the Memory Maker advanced purchase savings offer so I can buy a few extra Dole Whips or buckets of popcorn during my vacation.  

    I hope this answers your question and clears up any confusion. Wishing you many magical memories with your family!
