The person who paid for Memory Maker must visit the attraction’s photo center within 24 hours of when the photo is taken. They need to give them the photo number from the ride and ask that it be associated with their MagicBand, Memory Maker card, or PhotoPass card. Some rides seem to be reading the RIFD code from MagicBands and automatically associate your ride photo with your account – but always check to be sure that happened.

13 – Are There Legal Restrictions On The Photos?

Yes. You receive a limited license to reproduce the photos only for personal use. If you get that perfect shot of yourself to place on your company billboard – too bad.
