    Is there a link to find specific information about Disneyland Photo Pass or Photo Pass+, whatever it is called?? Can we purchase and validate ahead or do we still have to make a stop at the photo shop on Main street first?

    Hi, Lisa! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy that you are considering purchasing a PhotoPass+ product! It really is the best way to get everyone in the picture and to ensure you have plenty of photo memories to take home.

    The Disney's PhotoPass Service page has lots of information on how PhotoPass works, which attractions and dining locations offer PhotoPass, and lists where PhotoPass photographers are usually located throughout the parks. If you log in to your Disneyland Resort account, you can access the page to explore the Disney PhotoPass+ One Week and One Day products.

    There are a couple of ways to purchase PhotoPass+ products and most don't require a stop at a PhotoPass shop location in the parks. First, you can buy the PhotoPass+ One Week or One Day products online in advance, during your visit, or after you return home. Advanced purchases can be activated either online or on the Disneyland app once the first PhotoPass photo has populated in your account. You can also buy PhotoPass+ One Day on the Disneyland app. Or, you can stop by Main Street Photo Supply or Kingswell Camera Shop to purchase these products or the PhotoPass Collection Product which can only be purchased on-site.

    One last tip...you can also use the Disneyland app to quickly and easily link your PhotoPass photos to your account. In lieu of a PhotoPass card, there is a "Link PhotoPass" option in the app that brings up a code for the PhotoPass photographers to scan after taking your picture. However, if you prefer the cards, you can still easily link any PhotoPass cards and attraction photos to your account using the app as well. 

    I hope this helps! Have a magical day!
