    Does everyone in our group need a magic band to be able to capture photos while on rides or can we just have one band for the group, and the rest use physical tickets

    Hello Candace! Welcome back to planDisney! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to answer another question for you. Thank you for trusting us with your planning.

    Disney PhotoPass attraction photos are undoubtedly impressive. I have cherished memories since 2009, with iconic attraction photos such as Splash Mountain and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Nowadays, you have even more options, including videos! Your group does not need MagicBands or MagicBands+ to link attraction photos for most of the attractions. You can easily tap your mobile device with a Disney MagicMobile pass, park admission card, MagicBand+ or MagicBand to link your photos to your account on photo preview walls as soon as you leave the attractions. 

    But, there are two attractions where the process is slightly different. For Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom, you need at least one person from your group to have a MagicBand or MagicBand+ so that the right mine train can be linked to your My Disney Experience account. And, for TRON Lightcycle / Run, each person can get their own exclusive photo if they carry a MagicBand or MagicBand+, or a mobile device with the My Disney Experience app and Bluetooth enabled. 

    You should not have any issues linking or automatically receiving all your photos. But, if you have any trouble finding your attraction photo, you can call the Disney PhotoPass Guest Support team or submit an online form to locate your missing media

    When you submit an online form for a missing photo, make sure to include as much detail as possible to help the Cast Members locate your media. You'll want to include the date and time and any descriptive features (e.g., clothing and hats worn, hair colour, ages) that might assist the team in locating your specific photo. 

    I hope this helps you, Candace! If you have any other questions before your next big adventure, don't hesitate to reach out! It's always a pleasure to help out a friend like you!
