    If you have already purchased Genie+ at Disneyland, do you also have to first purchase the PhotoPass to be able to get the free downloads, or does Genie+ take care of everything?

    Howdy, Deborah! Welcome to planDisney. We are so thrilled to see you've stopped by with your question for us.

    I love hearing that you are thinking about or already purchased Disney Genie+. This add-on service is always a must for me when I want to make the most of my Disneyland day. If you have purchased Disney Genie+, there is nothing more you need to do to enjoy the other benefits of this service. Once you have scanned your ticket or tapped your MagicBand+ at the turnstile and entered the park, you are good to go! You can immediately start using PhotoPass with unlimited digital downloads. After you've taken a photo with your favorite character or photo opportunity in the park with a PhotoPass Photographer, you will show them your PhotoPass code located in the Disneyland app. You can find this by opening up the app and tapping on the three horizontal lines, next you will tap the "Photos" option, and then at the top tap "Link Photos". This will show you all the linking options, including "Show PhotoPass Code".

    If you find yourself fumbling through the app to get to your PhotoPass code, I have a tip for you. Each PhotoPass Photographer has PhotoPass Cards. Just ask for one and they will scan this after you take your photos. In the "Link Photos" option, you can scan that card to link the card to your account. Once you've done that, you can just show and scan all future photo opportunities with this card and it will link to your account and the photos will show in the app for you. 

    Deborah, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a magical time at Disneyland Resort and take advantage of all the opportunities to strike a pose!
