    how far in advance can you purchase photo pass or photo pass+?

    Hi there, Trenton! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I'm so glad that you are looking into purchasing a PhotoPass+ product for your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort! With PhotoPass photographers located throughout the parks, there are so many opportunities to capture wonderful memories of your trip. There isn't a restriction to how far in advance you can buy the PhotoPass+ One Day or One Week products. However, since these purchases are nonrefundable, I suggest waiting until your trip is a few days away to purchase one of these products in advance. You never know if plans may change or if a different offer will pop up before your trip that you may want to take advantage of instead. 

    While you can purchase these products at any time, please keep in mind that there is set time limit for downloading your photos. You have 45 days from the date of capture to purchase and download your photos. There is an opportunity to extend that expiration date an additional 15 days for an extra fee. After that time, your Disney PhotoPass photos will no longer be available. 

    If you purchase a PhotoPass+ product in advance, you will activate the product once you have your first photo taken. You can do this online or in the Disneyland app. Simply select your first PhotoPass photo and then choose to activate your PhotoPass+ product. From that point on, you will have access to download your PhotoPass photos for either the rest of the day or the rest of the week, depending on the product you purchased. 

    Have a wonderful time at the Disneyland Resort!
