That's insane! I can't believe anyone pays for this dumpy product any more. I only had one day's worth (still quite a few for one day though). I can't even imagine sorting through a week or longer worth of photos like this.

No kidding!!! It's horrible!! I wrote to WDW about it, too, but I'm sure that had no impact.

I was just thinking I might write them as well. What a ridiculous product. Even if it makes no difference, maybe I'll feel better for writing.

    I just downloaded our photos and..... what a mess. They have file random file names so when I extract them from my download file, they're a jumbled mess. Was there a better way to do this?
    I don't know how the downloads work this year. Last year, pretty much, each day / park was in it's own zip file, so I just extracted each one into it's own folder, and everything was organized that way.

    I downloaded 5 days worth in May and all mine were organized by time and day. I have a Mac, not sure if that makes a difference.

    I was just coming to ask about this. I cannot find any of my pictures. The file names are crazy long and they are all mixed up together. I thought I had to be doing something wrong.

    Same. I have Hewlett Packard, so Windows is my operating system.
    I'm using a mac and there is no rhyme or reason to how mine are sorted. I have a pic of Tiana in one folder and Rapunzel is in another. Same with Ana and Elsa. Pics from all 4 parks in one folder and I didn't visit all 4 parks in one day. Its so frustrating!

    I'm going to assume it's your operating system? Are your pictures on the photopass site arranged by park and date?

    Quick Question about the Magic Shots.
    We have never had one. Do you need to ask photographers for these?
    We typically get over 1000 photos during our trips but not once have we ever had a magic shot done.

    Some do them automatically by having you pose a certain way. Regardless, you can ask if they have any at that particular location.

    When my son and I were there early June, I had completely forgotten to ask for Magic Shots. Luckily two of our photographers had us pose for just that. One was Lumiere at Belle's Enchanted Tales, the other was Tink in front of Cinderella's castle.

    I am joining some friends later this week on a trip I have an AP- thus photo pass. We are linked in MDE and I did click to share my photos. They are there ahead of me- I should be able to see their photos on my account since they are linked- right? That not occurring as of yet- although they can seem with the watermarks on their end. Any suggestions?

    If they have their own MDE accounts, they need to give you permission to see their photos. It’s a separate box to check and may have to be done on the MDE website instead of the app.

    Please forgive me if this is answered somewhere else on this thread. I did do a search but could not find the info I am looking for.

    I purchased memory maker yesterday in advance of my upcoming trip (leaving Monday :)!!). I purchased through my account on the website on my computer. The purchase does show up there but I am not seeing it linked on the MDE app on my phone. On the mobile app it still shows the option to purchase it and then it gives the option to link if you have already purchased but when I go through the steps to try and link it, it tells me that my memory maker is already linked to another account. I'm starting to worry that I am going to have to have issues once we get there. Has anyone experienced anything similar? TIA!

    MM does not show in the MDE mobile app. As long as you see MM linked on the MDE website, everything is okay. Once you have photos taken, the MDE app will give you the option to activate MM when you go to download a photo.

    How do I get the advanced price of $169 for the Memory Maker? Everytime I go to purchase it, the only price I see is $199?

    Help??

    We arrive on Saturday, but our first park day is Monday.

    Also, I see I can purchase days separately, after the fact. So if we will only be in the parks 2 days, (one day we are park hoping MK to HS, the other day we will spend entirely in EPCOT), would it be cheaper to just pay for each day after? At $70 for each day?

    And lastly, are there a lot more special photo places in Disney Springs from 2016?

    Thanks!!
