    I keep seeing “photo pass card” mentioned, where do you get your photo pass card?

    Hi there Nicki!  Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Back in the olden days, before such modern things as MagicBands, FastPass+, and My Disney Experience, Disney PhotoPass photographers would scan a card after capturing Guests' photos.  A Guest would pick up a card from a photographer the first time they had a photo taken, and could present the same card for additional photos or pick up new cards.  Guests would then visit the Disney PhotoPass website and enter the codes from the cards to view all their photos.

    In our modern age with all the digital Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning tools we now have available, I have not used a Disney PhotoPass card in a very, very long time.  Ages, in fact.  It was so long ago I can only faintly remember ... let me think ... ah yes!  I believe it was 2012.  Hmmm ... could have been 2013 ... well, the point it is, it was a different era.

    Nowadays, Disney PhotoPass photographers link Guests' photos to their My Disney Experience account by quickly scanning their MagicBand or ticket card.  Disney PhotoPass cards are still available from the photographers, but in most cases are not necessary.  A situation in which a Guest might need to pick up a card would be if perhaps they are capturing photos at a Resort Hotel or other location outside the parks, are not wearing a MagicBand and do not have an admission card.  There is an option to link a Disney PhotoPass card on the My Disney Experience website and in the My Disney Experience mobile app to connect any photos linked to the card to your account.

    Thank you for taking this trip down memory lane with me!  I hope I have answered your question.  If you have any additional questions or need additional information, please visit the Moms Panel again any time.  We are always happy to help.

    Wishing you a great big beautiful tomorrow!
