    Hi, Are the photographers from Disney Photo Pass people or from an outside vendor 🤔. Thank you 🩵

    Hi Sidney,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! Sounds like you are ready to make some memories aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, so let's get your question answered!

    Similar to Disney PhotoPass at Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort, professional quality photos are available aboard Disney Cruise Line. You will find photographers at many of the Character Experiences, dining venues, and other places around the ship and on Disney Castaway Cay. Even Magic Shots are available! These are not Disney PhotoPass photographers, however. Photography services are offered by Shutters Photography.

    Sidney, you can pre-purchase photo packages for a discounted price before your cruise begins. Once your cruise is paid in full, you can go to Book / Manage Cruise Activities under the Already Booked tab on the website. Remember to purchase the advance photo booking at least three days prior to sailing. After your cruise, you can download photos up to 45 days after the photo was captured by logging into Disney Cruise Line Photos.

    Be sure to check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you board the ship to discover when photo opportunities are scheduled and be on the lookout for photographers around the ship at other times, too! One of my favorites is meeting Chip and Dale in their sailor outfits! Here's a hint: they are usually in the main lobby atrium either on a day at sea or on the Castaway Cay day.

    I hope this information is helpful, Sidney. Please let us know if you have other questions.

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
