Guests traveling to Walt Disney World can add Memory Maker to their Walt Disney World vacation package. Currently priced at $169.00 if purchased before travel, Memory Maker is an addition for many guests.

Once purchased, Memory Maker gives guests access to all their on-ride photos and all professional pictures taken by the fantastic Disney Photopass Photographers throughout the Walt Disney World Resort Property.

Magic Shots

Disney PhotoPass Photographers can capture pictures of guests throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of these locations allow for these photographers to provide Magic Shots.

These specialty shots add a little extra magic to the pictures. It might be characters like Sven in Norway or Simba in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Although not all Disney PhotoPass Photographers can do Magic Shots, we always ask. You never know what fun will show up in your pictures when you do.

New Photo Options Coming

Disney Parks announced guests will have more photo opportunities in Walt Disney World this fall. Nine new opportunities are coming throughout Walt Disney World. These will be great ways to add magic to the fantastic pictures that can be taken throughout Walt Disney World.

In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests will find Ahsoka Magic Shots featuring Chopper, a Loth Cat, and Ahsoka. This is in connection to the release of this show on Disney+.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
