    Hi if i buy a disney one week photo pass how do you determine the day it starts is it the day it is purchased or the first photographer who scans the qr code

    Hello there, Katrina. A warm welcome from all of us at planDisney. Thanks for stopping by with your question. Photos are my favorite thing to take home from a visit to the Disneyland Resort - it's always fun to look back at such magical memories. I'm so glad you're investing in capturing these memories and I'm delighted to help with your question.

    Nothing beats the convenience of having Disney PhotoPass photographers help you document these lifetime memories - and everyone gets to be in the picture. I chatted with a Cast Member who shared that once your Disney PhotoPass+ One Week is scanned, this initiates the first day of your pass. After that, be sure to take as many pictures for you to look back on and remember your magical stay.

    It goes without saying that a picture in front of the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle is a must-do. However, there are some other spots around the resort that I love as well. One of my favorites is in front of Radiator Springs Racers in Disney California Adventure Park. For some added beauty, try to snap this picture around sunset - the colors will jump right off the screen. And of course, another great shot is in front of the famed Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. This is one I love to capture at night as well - there's just something extra magical about the Black Spire Outpost at night. 

    Katrina, I hope this has been helpful and maybe even gave you some ideas when it comes to photo ops. If you have other questions as you continue to plan, please come back and see us. Your visit is almost here - let the countdown begin! Wishing you the most magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.
