Totally worth it! The pictures are better than the ones they will take with your cameras, and to me it just made the character experiences better to not have to worry about snapping pictures myself, just let them do it since I knew I was getting them all anyway. I still had my camera and still took some, but Memory Maker was certainly worth the $150. We spend more than that for a 1 hour photo session with a photographer at home, let along pictures from a 2 week vacation. The only time I wouldn't buy it is for a really short trip of only a day or two.
