Have you heard of Memory Maker? This is an offered add-on to Disney vacation packages that allow you to unlimited photos from various rides, dining experiences and all Photo Pass photographers located all across Disney World. There are multiple benefits to purchasing this add=on that make it a real value at $169 if you pre-order the offering. The price goes up to $199 if you wait less than 3 days before your trip or during your trip, so you definitely want to purchase early to get the additional savings.
Here are more details about Memory Maker and 5 reasons why it is totally worth the cost:
1. Ride Photos:
So you rode Splash Mountain 5 times and really wish that you could have all of the ride photos, but it would blow the budget to buy 5 different photos from one ride. Well not anymore! Ride photos are included in Memory Maker! Even better, with Disney Magic, your ride photos will automatically be added to account after you ride without you needing to do anything. This prevents you from waiting in any lines to add your pictures to your account. It’s convenient and an amazing perk to Memory Maker!
2. Dining Photos:
Character dining events are a really fun experience on your Disney vacation. At certain venues they take your family picture with a themed back drop before your meal. The Photo Pass staff comes to your table during the meal to go over package options with you to purchase the photos. If you have Memory Maker, you get to have the photos added to your account for no charge! This is a savings of up to $30 if you buy the print package, so it’s a very valuable perk to have if you like character dining.
With Memory Maker you get to edit and resize your images as much as you want and save them to your account. You can also add Disney enhancements and borders, like Disney characters and other additions to your photos to customize them for your family. This allows you to double or even triple the amount of photos that you have from your Disney vacation for no extra charge.
4. Unlimited Photos:
There is no limit to the amount of photos that you can take or edit/save with Memory Maker. You can take as many pictures as you want in front of the castle. Don’t be shy about taking numerous poses so you get a mix of goofy and serious poses. This is one of the few times when all of your family can be in the photo without one person sitting out in order to operate the camera, so take advantage of it and take lots of fun pictures. Pictures are one of the best souvenirs of your trip, and with Memory Maker you get an endless supply.
5. Shared Access:
If you are linked to everyone in your party via your My Disney Experience account, you are able to access and save photos from all party members including their ride photos and photos they took with Photo Pass photographers while only purchases one Memory Maker. This allows a family to ride different rides or be in different cars on a ride and still have all of their ride photos with ease and not purchase multiple Memory Maker add-ons for the reservation. This is just another way that Memory Maker is super convenient.
Some of these benefits may not be as valuable with the addition of selfie sticks to the world or if you are savvy with photo editing software, but the benefit of the ride photos and dining photos provide a verifiable cost savings for most families. Do the math, compare the benefits and assess the convenience to determine if Memory Maker is a smart choice for you and your family. Smile and say, “Cheese!”
