Disney’s PhotoPass is a convenient way to get the whole family into your vacation pictures. The photographers are trained and experienced in the location, and they will set up your photo to be picture perfect. They’ll even take a picture with your own camera!

Photos taken with PhotoPass cameras will be uploaded to your MagicBand or PhotoPass card. Some rides even have cameras that will take your photo and automatically upload the photos to your MagicBand. Guests can then log on to their Disney account or the MyDisneyExperience App to view and purchase the photos individually. If you purchase the MemoryMaker before your vacation, you get all of the photos from your vacation.

PhotoPass has always been a great free benefit, but these changes will make it even more valuable.

PhotoPass has been around for a while, but these changes will give you more bang for your buck!

1. Watermarks

When you view PhotoPass photos online or on MyDisneyExperience, you will now see a watermark across the picture. The “Disney PhotoPass” watermark may make it more difficult to decide if the picture is worth purchasing. You will also not be able to screenshot the photo and keep it forever. This may be the one negative change, but the other changes will make this seem unimportant.

2. MyDisneyExperience App

The MyDisneyExperience App is an invaluable tool while visiting Disney, but changes involving PhotoPass will make it even better! The app lists everything from wait times to restroom and ATM locations, and it will now show the locations of PhotoPass Photographers. This means that you won’t have to wander around searching for a Photographer, but you’ll be able to find the closest photographer to your location or find out if a photographer is stationed at a location where you want to get a picture taken before you walk all the way there.

3. Digital and Print Copies

The PhotoPass of the past required users to purchase digital and print copies separately, but no more! When you purchase a digital copy of a print, you’ll also get a printed copy of any size! What’s even better is that there’s no additional fee! You should be aware, though, that this perk is only available online; digital purchases made in the park will not come with a print.

Digital downloads online will provide you with a free print, but this complementary print is not available for purchases made in the parks.

4. Unlimited Edits

PhotoPass has long allowed guests to edit their photos with borders, text, zooming, and cropping. However, it used to be that you had to purchase and download a photo every time you wanted to keep an edit of a photo. Now, Disney only requires that you purchase the photo once. Then you can make as many edits as you want and keep all of them. This is perhaps a response to how easy it has become to do basic and even more advanced photo editing with many online software programs.
