    We have Genie plus and are arriving in 2 weeks. What is the difference with photo pass??? If we want photos for instance with giant Mickey pumpkin are those part of genie plus or the free 100 years photo program?

    Hiya, Tina!

    How exciting it is that your visit to the Disneyland Resort is so close. I’m glad you have come to planDisney to help with some of your few remaining plans.

    You’ve already done a great job setting yourself up for a magical experience at the Disneyland Resort. My family and I love to leverage the benefits of the Disney Genie+ service to enhance our visit. I’m guessing you’re already familiar with how Genie+ allows you to book return time to the Lightning Lane entrances of select attractions. Another great benefit is access to Audio Tales. These are engaging recordings that offer additional background and context about the lands and attractions you will experience at the Disneyland Resort.

    The Disney Genie+ service also comes with complimentary access to two types of Disney PhotoPass products. One is Disney PhotoPass Lenses, which you can access from the ☰ feature menu of the Disneyland mobile app. These whimsical enhancements to your selfies and photos make for fun memories you’ll want to share with your friends and family back home. The other PhotoPass product you can access is unlimited digital downloads of photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers located throughout the theme parks. In the Disneyland app, log in to the account you used to purchase your theme park tickets with Genie+. When PhotoPass photographers scan your personal PhotoPass Code in the app, your pictures will be available for download, often nearly immediately!

    Tony’s Tip: As you are aware, the Disneyland Resort has transformed for Halloween Time. And yes, that means that if there is a PhotoPass photographer stationed by the giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin on Main Street, U.S.A., they will be able to take a photo of your party that you can download as a benefit included with Genie+. Whether you’re capturing memories in front of the Headless Horseman statue on Buena Vista Street or somewhere along the Rivers of America, all of your PhotoPass photos are included with Genie+.

    Tony’s Tip Times Two: With or without Genie+, Guests are also currently able to download all of their on-attraction photos for free. As my family exits a participating attraction, I like to use my phone to snap a picture of the photo display board. My phone allows me to tap and hold my finger on the text of the photo ID so that I can select and copy it. That makes it easy for me to paste it into the Disneyland mobile app to link the exciting photo to my account.

    I hope you have a marvelous time making magical memories, Tina! Please visit us at planDisney again if you have any more questions.
