    How to use photopass??

    Hi there, Preethi!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'd be delighted to give you more information about the Disney PhotoPass service.

    Throughout Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park you may see Disney PhotoPass photographers hanging around iconic locations or accompanying Character greetings. They will have their signature tan vests and and are equipped with professional cameras. They are always willing to take your picture with your own camera or their own (or both!). It doesn't cost anything for them to take your picture. Many will also place you in creative positions or create "Magic Shots." After your photos are taken, the photographer will give you a card with a bar code or you can have them scan your Disneyland app account right on your mobile device. You can also later link your PhotoPass card to your app account as well. Usually within minutes or hours, you can view previews of your Disney PhotoPass pictures in the Disneyland app. If you wish to download any of these photos or purchase personalized photo gifts, you may do this through the app or online. You can purchase single downloads or all of your pictures for one set price.

    My advice is to add Disney MaxPass to your park ticket. This daily feature lets you download every PhotoPass picture taken on the days it is added. Plus, with Disney MaxPass you will have the added benefit of selecting Disney FASTPASS return times right from the Disneyland app. For my family, Disney MaxPass is a priceless way to fit in more attractions and entertainment while letting us cherish our PhotoPass memories.

    I try to stop at as many PhotoPass locations as I can. You never know when one of these photos might make the perfect holiday card or end up framed above your fireplace. Have a magical day!
