    I plan on purchasing the photo pass+ and I read on a forum that you can take a picture of the photo pass+ card on your iphone and use that in cases where you are separated from the member of your party who has the actual card. Do you know if this is true?

    Hi Cindy!

         I used a PhotoPass + for my April 2013 Walt Disney World family vacation and for my recent October Walt Disney World vacation. It was simply amazing! I loved using the PhotoPass + especially to get ride and dining photos added on to my Photo CD. You will get only one PhotoPass + card and lanyard but your entire traveling party can use your PhotoPass + card and you can claim multiple photos from each ride that has photos taken during the ride if you have a large party of people. If you are not together for a ride, then you will have to do a few extra things. For ride photos if you are not together on the ride and don't have the person that is carrying the PhotoPass + card with you, then you have 24 hours to come back to that ride with the PhotoPass + Card to claim the photos. You will need to write the Photo Claim Number (the number on the ride photo that is displayed on the screen as you exit the ride).  I tried quite a few times to show a picture of the PhotoPass + Card that was on my phone because another member of my traveling party had the actual PhotoPass + card with them and only one time did they accept the picture on my phone.  The majority of the PhotoPass Cast Members told me that I needed to come back within 24 hours with the actual PhotoPass + Card to claim the ride photos.  So you can try it with a picture of the PhotoPass + Card on your phone, but it is not a guarantee that you will be able to claim the ride photos.

    I hope that you capture many magical moments on your Walt Disney World vacation and enjoy them for years to come!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
