Disney PhotoPass - What is it?

With today being the first ever #DisneyPhotoPassDay (today being Friday August 19, 2016), lets take a look at what exactly Disney PhotoPass is! Shall we?  In a nutshell, Disney PhotoPass Service is the picture-perfect way for resort guests to capture their magical vacation memories in great photos – and get everyone in the pictures!

When you're in the parks, guests just need to visit any Disney PhotoPass Photographer and let them snap away. You can tell someone is a Disney PhotoPass Photographer by 1) the camera, 2) their uniform: blue shorts (or pants), white button-up with a khaki vest over top it displaying the DisneyPhotoPass Logo on it.

Once you're done with your photoshoot, at Walt Disney World® Resort, the Disney PhotoPass Photographer will link your photos to your Disney account with a simple touch-scan of your MagicBand.  If your a guest who doesn't have a MagicBand, the Photographer will give you a Disney PhotoPass Card containing your photos that you can link to their account to get your photos.

An awesome thing about the Disney PhotoPass service is that Disney PhotoPass Photographers are all over the parks! They are located around many Disney icons, at most Character Experience locations, select dining locations, and at both water parks from Memorial Day to Labor Day! There are even cameras in place on some of your favorite attractions!

This means you'll get lots of pictures from your vacation that include the entire family! You'll no longer have to ask a stranger to take your picture (with hopes they don't break your camera) and you no longer have to choose which family member will be excluded from the photo by having to take it.  I always add the Memory Maker package to my personal vacations for these reasons - plus I don't want to miss being able to capture any of the special moments that happen on our Disney vacations!
Everyone is in the picture!
If you're visiting Walt Disney World Resort you can easily access your photos through the My Disney Experience mobile app* or at You can also use the My Disney Experience mobile app to find Disney PhotoPass Photographer locations and link your Disney PhotoPass card(s) to your account.  Once you are home you can add borders and stickers to your photos on the Disney PhotoPass website to customize your pictures!
