Is Memory Maker Worth It?

You’re already spending thousands on your Disney World vacation. Do you splurge for extras? Is Memory Maker worth it? Read on to find out what I think.

During our recent trip to Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we took advantage of the wonderful photographers on site so that we could have photos of the entire family at many of the iconic locations throughout the park. Selfies are great and we did some of those too, but I wanted to have photos I could put in frames throughout the house as reminders of the amazing time we had. That’s where Disney PhotoPass comes in handy.

Disney PhotoPass Photographers are trained professionals who capture memories of families smiling together in front of Cinderella’s Castle, or hugging Mickey Mouse and so much more. Disney PhotoPass photographers are available at many locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

In addition to family photos in front of special landmarks in the park, Disney PhotoPass also gives you access to photos taken on select attractions throughout the parks. From plummeting down the elevator shaft on Tower of Terror, to zooming around the corner on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, you can take home special videos of the magic you experienced while at Disney World.

There is magic throughout the Walt Disney Resort, and the Disney PhotoPass Photographers are great at capturing it. From a visit from Tinkerbell at Epcot to a visit from some of our Lion King friends at Animal Kingdom, the photographers caught it all.

And if you’re dining at select locations throughout the park, the Disney PhotoPass Photographers will take photos as you and your children get to know the characters.

Is Memory Maker Worth It?

I think so. For us it is anyway. It kept me from having to lug around my heavy DSLR and it allowed all five of us to be in the photos.

How Much Does Memory Maker Cost?

As of the time of this post, when you purchase Memory Maker in advance of your trip (at least 3 days) it costs only $149. If you purchase it at the park or less than three days from your time in the park it costs $169. So just by purchasing early you save $20.

What Does Memory Maker Get You?

Memory Maker makes it super easy to get all your photos from the park in an easy to download format. You get unlimited downloads of all your wonderful memories captured while at the parks. During our vacation I could view the photos easily on the My Disney Experience app, download them to my phone and share in real time. Once we arrived back home I was able to download each of the videos and photos to my home computer and they are mine to use however I wish.

    Wow I had no idea this was an option! I can imagine it being super helpful not to have to carry a camera around all day and it must be nice to have family photos with everyone in the picture.

    Great review! I never heard about this before but it has been years since we’ve been to Disney!

    Wow. I like this idea. Certainly there are advantages to this service. Someday when I am able to take my kids to Disney I would love to use this service.

    This is pretty cool! I love the idea of not having to lug your own camera around Disney!

    You really get your money worth with the extras. The cool graphics and character inclusions are awesome.

    I think it would be worth it! I love that everyone would be in the pictures we are always missing who ever is taking the photos in the pictures.

    Perfect timing as we are headed to Disney World in 3 weeks. I’ve always debated over purchasing Memory Maker on our prior trips, but I like that you point out that it keeps you from having to lug around a bulky, heavy DSLR.

    Memory Maker seems like one of those options that’s very individual. It’s probably a great idea if you’re hugely into Disney.

    I’ve never heard of Memory Maker before. It definitely does have some benefits to consider.
