We just returned from a week at WDW. I read numerous Memory Maker reviews and opinions before our trip. Much of what I read suggested buying MM only if we would get lots of ride photos or dining photos. With little kids who would not be doing the thrill rides and no plans to do much character dining, I wasn’t sure if MM would be worth it.
I ended up buying 3 days before our trip, and I am very glad that I did. We have 5 year old and 7 year old girls. We met all the princesses and many other characters. We felt free to stop at every park and have our pictures taken. We got multiple shots at every meet & greet (zoomed-in, zoomed-out, portrait, landscape) instead of just the one or two shots we would have gotten with our own camera. We ended up with over 300 images and loads of great shots that I never would have been able to get myself. Plus, I could enjoy watching/participating without having to worry about taking the pictures.
