    I have an AP. I will be at WDW at the same time as my mother. If I link our accounts will any Photo Pass pictures appear in my account if she has them taken without me. There will be times when we are on different rides or possibly different parks.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laura! Thank you for stopping by to bring us your question. 

    It’s always a pleasure to chat with a fellow Annual Passholder! I love all the benefits the come with being an AP, like being able to visit the most magical place on earth often! But one of my favorites is the added benefit of editing, downloading, and sharing all my PhotoPass pictures from all my visits. Getting to see my kids grow up at Disney is pure magic!

    Laura, I have good news for you! As long as your mom is linked to your My Disney Experience account under your Family & Friends, any pictures she captures during her stay will link to your account. Once you get home, you will be able to edit all your pictures, download and share them with her. You will also have a limited license for printing them. I’ve created some super cute Photo Books from my visits and I love browsing them and re-living all those magical moments created during our stays!

    A few reminders and things to keep in mind. On any other account that is linked to you, the photos will still show the watermark. But you will still be able to view and download them. Don’t forget to scan your MagicBands after each picture taken and keep the MagicBands on so they are able to capture the special photos or special videos that select attractions offer. You must be wearing your MB’s for these images to link. Finally, be sure to ask your Disney PhotoPass photographer for magic shots. You never know what added pixie dust or special character might pop into your pictures!

    Thanks again for stopping by! Please do come back again and see us real soon. TTFN! Ta ta for now,

Hi! My name is Emille. I’m a mom of two and wife to a wonderful fellow Disney nerd!

When I’m not at the Parks, you can find me leading worship at my local church or traveling with a prison ministry I sing and speak for. I look forward to answering your questions and sharing some of my favorite tips to help you plan your next magical Walt Disney World vacation! Learn More About Emille
