    Question Memories vs. Magic Your Way

    Ok so... I've booked it and still don't know so I figured I'd post it out here. For the past however many years when I've booked a package it's been called (as we all know) the "Magic Your Way Package". Now, this new thing I've booked for September is called the "Memories Package". I know there has got to be some differences but I've no idea what they are. I think there was something about a free photo album? Anyway... just curious if anyone knows (because I'm too crazed to research it myself). LOL!

    Well, Magic Your Way is still the name of the tickets. When they first came out with them, the packages were also called that because it was a way you could customize your package.

    Now they add all sorts of other things like arcade cards, spa discounts, etc., and the "theme" for the next couple years seem centered around "Memories", so they've named the packages as such as well.

    I think it is just a name change in general.

    Oh yes that much I know but it just feels like in the past, with each name change has come new package contents.

    Well, the web site still calls them "Magic Your Way", and doesn't mention anything about (for lack of a better term) throw-ins - but I don't think they ever did (beyond the "gift card" rebate-style offers).

    from what I've been seeing, it's a photopass photo album that you are paying for that costs around $110.

    You buy the Memories package in order to receive the free dining. It's a small price to pay in my book : )

    FYI, I did see the web site call it a "Memories" package in reference to the Free Dining offer...

    Yes, in order to get Free Dining you are booking the "new" memories package. Hence my wondering what was so new about it. I went in and found that yes you get a photo album and that's pretty much the only difference (aside from the obvious temporary free dining offer). Thanks everyone!
