Now, guests who purchase and link Memory Maker to their MyMagic+ account, and also have a linked MagicBand, will have their attraction photos automatically associated to their My Disney Experience account without having to stop at the photo counter to claim their photos.
In review, MyMagic+ is the new Disney online account system where you can track & make reservations for your entire vacation. Memory Maker is a photo package that you can purchase which allows you to download and keep all of the attraction photos and Photopass photos from your trip once you return.
Participating attractions include:
Magic Kingdom park: Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain and Splash Mountain
Epcot: Test Track
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Animal Kingdom: Dinosaur and Expedition Everest
If your photos are important to you, I suggest that you get a ticket with your photo ID number from a cast member & be sure to double check that your photo has made it in your account as soon as possible. Attraction photos expire quickly and I have personally experienced some lost photos & mishaps. I expect that Disney will have this method perfected at some point, but until then be sure to double check your photos.
