Disney's PhotoPass

What happens when you are the photographer on your family vacation? Well that usually means that it looks like you weren't even there! With Disney's Photo Pass, you can solve that problem!

Disney's PhotoPass is an amazing, FREE service!

As soon as you walk into one of the theme parks you will see some photographers in vests taking pictures, usually in front of the icon of the theme park. (For example, Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom) They will give you a card with a number on it, KEEP THIS CARD! DO NOT LOSE IT! Put it in a safe spot that is easy to get to. This card will be the only way to see the pictures that the photographer took of your vacation. Now this card (and the number on the back) is yours! Every time that you see a photographer, hand them this card and have them take your picture.

The number on the card is very important: make sure you take a picture with your camera or write it down somewhere because if it is lost, so are your pictures. If you do happen to lose the card, you can get a new one and then combine all your numbers later. Also, if your group separates and you have more than one card, you can still combine them all online later.

When you get home you simply log onto the, enter the number off of your card and your pictures are there for your to edit, play with and purchase! The photos are only available for 30 days.

Another fun tip: The photographers may ask you to do some fun poses. For example, they'll have you cup your hands or have you put them in the air like you're lifting something. When you view your photos, you'll see Tinker Bell, Figment, or Simba now added to your "magical photos".

Purchasing the PhotoPass pictures:

One good way to purchase the PhotoPass is to pre-order it. If you pre-order the CD before you travel the price is $99 and if you wait until you get to the parks the price is $150. If you do get the CD, make sure to get LOTS OF PHOTOS! Stop every PhotoPass photographer that you see!

You can also purchase the pictures individually, there are options for other packages as well.
