    We are going to Disneyland/California Adventure for 2 days. I am still unclear on how the photo pass works, do I need to purchase 2 separate days to have access to our photos? Is there an additional fee to download them?

    Hi, Jessica! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I get so excited whenever I'm able to help one of my fellow Coloradans plan a trip to the Disneyland Resort! I am more than happy to demystify PhotoPass+ for you!

    Since you will be visiting the parks for two days, you have a few different options available to you. You can purchase PhotoPass+ One Day if you think you will only want photos from one day of your trip; you can purchase the PhotoPass+ One Week product to receive all the images taken over both days; or you can purchase individual downloads of certain images. Even without purchasing a PhotoPass+ product in advance, you can still preview all your PhotoPass photos online or using the Disneyland app. They will just be watermarked until you decide how to purchase them.

    My suggestion to you is to wait to purchase a product until after you see what photos were taken during your trip. If you find that you just didn't make it to as many PhotoPass photographers as you were intending, then perhaps the PhotoPass+ One Day option or purchasing individual photos makes the most sense. Or when you see that you have oodles and oodles of wonderful pictures after you return home, then you will know you want to purchase the One Week product. If you decide on either PhotoPass+ One Day or One Week, you will only pay the one-time fee to purchase the product and then you will have unlimited downloads of all your images for 45 days. If you decide to purchase your images one-by-one, you will pay a fee to download each picture.

    I hope this makes sense. Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any further questions!
