    We are traveling to WDW in 3 weeks. Staying on DVC points for the first time. How do we do the photo passes with the magic bands? Do we link a card to all our bands or do we need to have the cards like we have had over the year? We have 6 in our group

    Hi Nikki!

    Your first stay as Disney Vacation Club Members is just around the corner! I hope you are getting excited after all the planning you have been doing.

    Magic Bands and My Disney Experience make PhotoPass photography even easier than before. As long as everyone in your party is linked as Friends & Family in your My Disney Experience accounts, you’ll be able to share, view and purchase photos from anyone in the group. Before you go, visit your My Disney Experience Account. For each person in your travel party, click on the Edit button and be sure that it says you can share photos. If it doesn’t say that, you’ll need to check the box that allows this feature. Once you arrive at Walt Disney World, simply offer any person’s Magic Band each time you have your photos taken. Everyone who is linked will be able to see or purchase the photos. No cards needed!

    As I recall from one of your previous questions, you are traveling with your adult children and their spouses. You might consider using Disney’s Memory Maker. With Memory Maker, you receive a digital download of ALL of the PhotoPass Photos you have taken, including select dining locations and attractions that feature on-ride photography. From your family photo in front of Cinderella Castle to meeting Mickey Mouse, or zooming through Test Track, it's all included! While only one person will be able to download the photos once you return home, they can then be shared on your own, and you get full rights to have any of your photos printed and used however you wish. 

    If you would be interested in Memory Maker, you can purchase directly from your My Disney Experience Account. By purchasing at least three days prior to your arrival you currently receive a discount. Have a great vacation, Nikki, and smile big for all those magical photos!
