    We are heading to WDW in two weeks. We just purchased the Photo Pass + and we already have our customized magic bands. My question is will I have to have a separate card for the Photo Pass or will it be linked to my/our magic bands? Thanks

    Hi Rodney!

         Thanks for asking me a question!  You will have to have a separate PhotoPass + card which will not be linked to your Magic Bands.  You will have to show your PhotoPass + card at attractions and dining to get the extra features (ride and dining photos currently still require to see the PhotoPass + card as I am answering your question--keep in mind that this may change in the future).  When you get home you will have to go to and link your PhotoPass + ID number to your My Disney Experience account (you can also link multiple regular PhotoPass cards here as well). Your Magic Bands will work for regular PhotoPass photos (the Magic Bands have a separate PhotoPass ID number).  It does sound complicated, but it is actually very easy.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is truly amazing in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
