Is Memory Maker worth it?

That’s a really good question. Another, “Is it worth it,” question. There are a lot of questions that ask, “Is (insert here) worth it.” They all can be answered with maybe, maybe not. It’s all about the experience. Which brings us to Memory Maker.
Memory Maker is a program where you can buy the pictures that are taken by PhotoPass photographers. The package lets you download all of those pictures when you get home, and you can order prints. You get great amount of pictures. It costs $169 if you purchase in advance or $199, either onsite or for a few days after you come back home.
Let’s take a look…
If you’re going with the big group, like when we went with The Man-Child, The Southern Belle, The Princess and her Prince Charming, all six of us, it’s a really good deal for a group because everybody in the group has access to the pictures. The Princess and her Prince Charming, they were able to download the pictures. The Man-Child and his Southern Belle, they were able to download the pictures. It was a good deal for us because there were 200, 300 pictures, and we got all those great pictures.
Our download included the ride pictures. Like the pictures you see at say the Tower of Terror. Those pictures after the ride where people are going, “Ahhh,” those pictures are included. If you like those pictures, absolutely, Memory Maker is worth it. It’s helps you remember the experience.
Mrs. Mom is a big fan of Memory Maker. She says, you can’t have enough pictures of EVERYONE and Memory Maker lets EVERYONE be in the picture.
You might not need Memory Maker if you take a lot of pictures? If you’re the type that love taking pictures then you might not want to shell out the money. If you are on a budget, it’s not a must.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Do you take a lot of pictures of the family, or would you rather let somebody else take the pictures for you? If you want to let somebody else take the pictures for you, Memory Maker is the way to go. If you like taking a lot of pictures skip it. It’s really up to you. Do you want to get pictures or are you good with taking your own? That’s what it boils down to.
