    We have a family of 8 most won't be riding on the majority of rides that are included in the max pass. Does everyone in the party need to have one to be included in the photo pass? Or is there a way to purchase just the photo pass?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melissa! Traveling to the Disneyland Resort with a large group means a whole lot of magical memories are coming your way!

    Disney MaxPass is a phenomenal service because it will cut down the amount of time you wait in line while also providing downloads of all your PhotoPass photos captured on any day that you use MaxPass. Keep in mind that while FASTPASSES are available for all the thrill attractions, there are other attractions that offer FASTPASS that your whole family may want to ride. These include Haunted Mansion, Toy Story Midway Mania, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, “it’s a small world,” and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin. If some of your travel party is certain that they won’t be riding these attractions, then you don’t need to purchase Disney MaxPass for the whole group. When it comes to downloading your PhotoPass photos, you just need to ensure that all the photos are linked to an account with an active Disney MaxPass purchase for each day of your trip. 

    You can link photos to your account in a few different ways. First, have the PhotoPass photographer scan the PhotoPass code in your Disneyland app to have the photos automatically linked to your account. Or if you or anyone in your party receives a PhotoPass card after their photos are taken, you can link this card by scanning the code or manually entering the ID number into the app. Finally, you can link attraction photos to your account by making note of the photo ID on the monitor as you exit the attraction. Then, manually enter that ID into the app. 

    I hope this helps. Have a fabulous trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!
