10 Recent Additions that Make Memory Maker the Best Souvenir

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

The ability to download all the Disney PhotoPass photos and videos from your Walt Disney World vacation with Memory Maker is such an underrated tip.

I take home many, MANY souvenirs every vacation, but my
photos always seem to be the souvenir that matters the most long after my visit
is over.

Disney PhotoPass Service continuously adds new photo ops, so
there’s always something exciting for you to download when you have Memory
Maker. Below, check out 10 recent or soon-to-launch experiences offered by
Disney PhotoPass Service that you can download with Memory Maker.

1. Disney PhotoPass Video Memories

The newest addition to Memory Maker is access
to Disney PhotoPass video memories, which launched yesterday!

With this brand-new offering, you can create and share video memories using your Disney PhotoPass photos or your personal photos. You can create and customize these Disney-themed video templates with stickers, music, and text— or, you can let us completely create the video memory for you in a matter of moments using the photos from your Disney PhotoPass gallery. This exciting new offering is available exclusively in the My Disney Experience app. Learn more by clicking here.

2. Tiny World Magic Shot at Magic Kingdom Park  

Photographers offer a number of Tiny World
Magic Shots across the theme parks, with our newest launching last week at
Magic Kingdom Park! You can find this 360-degree photo op next to Cinderella
Castle during daylight hours.

3. Indoor Photo Studio at EPCOT 

Disney PhotoPass Studios are located at Disney’s
Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney Springs, and now
EPCOT too! At the Wandering Reindeer in the Norway pavilion at EPCOT, you’ll
find our newest studio location. Like all of our studios, it’s staffed by our
talented photographers, no reservations are required, everyone is welcome to visit,
and the photos captured are included with Memory Maker at no extra cost.

4. Seasonal Backdrops at the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs

Speaking of photo studios, our location at Disney Springs recently started offering backdrops with themed designs and props that change with each season.

5. Return to Dining Locations

We know when you visit one of our incredible dining locations, your focus is probably on the food. Fair! But we love putting the icing on that cake by offering you a photo op with a Disney Character. You can now find photographers at Chef Mickey’s, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White.

6. Attraction Photo and Video Onboard TRON Lightcycle / Run

Let’s talk TRON! TRON Lightcycle / Run
presented by Enterprise opens at Magic Kingdom Park on April 4. You can
relive your race through this computerized world when you preview an onboard
photo and video automatically linked to your My Disney Experience account
through one of the following methods: 

  • Use your eligible mobile device, enable Bluetooth for the My Disney Experience app* before riding, ensure you’ve logged into the My Disney Experience app sometime earlier that day, and keep your device out of low power mode. Make sure your mobile device boards your Lightcycle with you and is safely stored in the small Lightcycle compartment to use this method.  
  • Wear a MagicBand or MagicBand+ that’s linked to your account. 

You can also use the methods above to link and
download your photos taken onboard more than a dozen attractions across Walt
Disney World Resort – all included with Memory Maker.

7. Prop Available Soon Near TRON Lightcycle / Run

You can find numerous Disney PhotoPass props during
your visit, but our newest will be available near TRON Lightcycle / Run when it
opens April 4!

8. More Classic Magic Shots  

Photographers currently offer more than 70 classic Magic Shots. These photos are so unexpected and fun, with Disney characters and other themed effects applied to your photo. We’re constantly adding new Magic Shots, our newest being Bruni, a large assortment for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, and a TRON Magic Shot (available starting April 4). More new offerings will be released very soon!

You can view all the Magic Shots we
currently offer at Walt Disney World Resort – and see where they’re captured – by
viewing our Facebook albums, found here.
The albums are kept up to date, so be sure to check them out right before your
visit. You can also ask each photographer which options they have available to
capture at their location.

9. Fairytale Photos at Enchanted Tales with Belle

Enchanted Tales with Belle recently reopened at Magic Kingdom Park. And it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I share that photographers are now capturing memories in the library as you relive a tale as old as time. This is one of the nearly 40 locations where you can find Disney PhotoPass Service ready to capture your encounter at character experiences. 

10. Transformation Photos at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom Park

While a Fairy Godmother’s Apprentice helps your princess or knight undergo a royal transformation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom Park, a photographer will be there to capture it. Tip: Visit the Royal Portrait Studio nearby in Sir Mickey’s where a photographer can capture more photos of your child’s transformation.
