We are huge fans of capturing vacation memories with your family and friends. This is why we highly recommend Photo Connect when you book your Universal Orlando vacation. Photo Connect StarCard allows you to be in the pictures with your family! Best yet, these pictures will be captured by professional photographers throughout the parks while you vacation.

You simply present your Photo Connect StarCard to a photographer/photo counter (cards are free at all photo locations). We love this tip, you are actually able to crop the ride photos so that only your travel party is in the pictures!!

Be sure to have your Guru Travel Professional add Photo-Connect StarCard to your vacation package today!

Some things to know:

If you are familiar with Disney’s Memory Maker and the abundance of photographers that come with it, just know that this program is not run exactly the same. There are not always photographers at all locations. Just be sure to bring your camera with you for the extra photos that you want to add to your collection.
