    Do I need to purchase photopass plus in order to take pictures with characters?

    Dear Marianna, 

    Thank you for swinging by with your question! Getting pictures with the Disney characters is certainly one of my priorities during every family vacation! We love to go back and look at the memories we have made throughout the years. Our kids have grown at Disney World, the one thing that I still find interesting though is how Mickey and pals haven't aged a bit, I wonder what their secret is!

    Disney PhotoPass photographers do a remarkable job of capturing the magic during those character meet and greets. You can ask them to snap a few photos with your cell phone or tablet and they will be happy to do that for you. However, if you want to have access to their magic shots, plus unlimited downloads of ALL the photos captured throughout the Walt Disney World Resort (select dining locations and attractions in addition to theme parks and water parks), I recommend you purchase Memory Maker, the most convenient photo and video package ever! It's so worth it! Not only will you be able to get in the picture with the rest of your family members and friends, but you will also get your picture taken as you ride the roller coasters and other rides! In order to make the best use of your Memory Maker photo package, be sure to get in line to get your photo taken every time you see a Disney PhotoPass photographer. Also, do not forget to visit the Disney's PhotoPass Service Studio at Disney Springs and get dozens of photos with really cool backgrounds! 

    Marianna, I hope this answer is helpful. Please come back with more and more questions, it's our pleasure to help!

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
