    how can i buy photopass w/o genie plus

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Shannon! You’re as welcome as can be. Thanks for visiting us at planDisney! 

    Shannon, as a super fan of Disney PhotoPass, I am excited to hear you’re thinking about it too. I have hundreds of Disney PhotoPass captures from over the years - they are treasured memories of our trips. My daughters and I often flip through our trip photos on our phones and we get some great laughs comparing our photos from the years!

    It is certainly possible to purchase PhotoPass without Disney Genie+, however the price difference is just one cent, so in my opinion, you might as well get both! Let me describe both options to you. 

    If you’d like to purchase Disney PhotoPass alone, once you have Photos linked in your Disneyland mobile app, you’ll have the option to purchase photos individually or unlimited downloads from a single day for $19.99 (price subject to change.) Just go to the Photos area of the Disneyland mobile app and you’ll see the options to purchase. You have the option to purchase photo gifts as well.

    As an alternative, you can get Disney Genie+, currently $20 per day. Then, in the Photos area of the app, you’ll automatically see your photos without the watermark and available for you to download. In my humble opinion, this is a great value and cosmically powerful! You can save hours upon hours waiting in queues for attractions AND get your priceless memories for practically the same price.

    Shannon, I’m not sure if you know that Disney PhotoPass includes not only snaps taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers, but also the fun, candid attraction photos. In the attractions that offer photos, when you exit the attraction, make sure to note the Attraction ID number so you can link the photo in your app. Attractions that capture photos are Radiator Springs Racers, Space Mountain, and Incredicoaster, just to name a few!

    You can find the locations of the Disney PhotoPass Photographers in the app - just search for "Disney PhotoPass" and it will take you to a page with a map showing their locations. One more tip - ask the photographer about Magic Shots, they can add special effects and characters to your photos at no additional cost.

    The magic awaits, Shannon! Enjoy your trip!
