    When we ate a chef mickeys, they said our photo would Mickey would be free. However when I go to the app it looks like I have to pay. Are the photos with Mickey complimentary or do they need to be purchased?

    Hiya Julianne,

    Welcome to planDisney! I hope you enjoyed your visit to Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. There is no better way to be introduced to character dining than with a meal accompanied by Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto! I have such fond memories of dining there because it was my little one’s first character dining experience. The photos of her with Mickey and his pals are some of my favorites I have.

    Speaking of photos, thank you for your question about photos taken by a PhotoPass photographer at Chef Mickey’s. I reached out to a Cast Member, Julianne, to confirm whether the images taken during the dining experience are included, and they are not, unfortunately. Those Guests who have purchased Memory Maker can download those photos because they are included with the price. If you had not purchased Memory Maker prior, you must buy your photos separately to download a non-watermarked photo.

    To purchase your photo, you can do so through My Disney Experience.

    1. Locate My Disney Experience on the menu at the top of the Walt Disney World Resort website.
    2. Select “My Photos,” from the dropdown menu.
    3. Click the Blue “Sign In” button to sign in to your My Disney Experience account and access your linked photos (if you are not already signed in).
    4. Select the photo you would like to download, and when the full-size image opens up, there will be an option on the right side to purchase a “Photo Download” of a single image.
    5. Select “Add to PhotoPass Bag,” and then you can purchase and download the photo. Note that your “PhotoPass Bag” is near the top of the screen and looks like a little purse.

    I hope this was helpful, Julianne. Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
