    How do I purchase the photo pass for the one day that we will be in Disneyland?

    Hello, Yadira!

    Oh! What Joy you’ll have making magical memories at the Disneyland Resort. Capturing those memories in photographic form to share with others and reminisce for years to come is the perfect way to extend the magic even more.

    There are currently three ways to purchase your Disney PhotoPass digital downloads. You may purchase individual photos in the Disneyland mobile app or online. Or you may purchase the Disney PhotoPass+ One Week product to gain access to seven consecutive days of magic during a visit to the Disneyland Resort. Or, for the best value in my opinion, you may purchase the Disney Genie+ service for each day you wish to download digital photos taken by PhotoPass photographers at the Disneyland Resort.

    With Disney Genie+, you'll also unlock Disney PhotoPass Lenses that add augmented reality effects to selfies and other photos and videos taken with your mobile phone.

    Also, note that digital downloads of your attraction photos taken at the Disneyland Resort are currently complimentary. No additional Genie+ or PhotoPass purchase is necessary. Just remember to note the photo ID displayed on the screens at the attraction exit and enter that ID into the Disneyland mobile app to claim your photo. And be sure to download all of your photos before they expire.

    Tony's Tip: If your theme park tickets already include the Disney Genie+ service, you are already entitled to download your Disney PhotoPass photos taken on the days you use your tickets at the Disneyland Resort. If you don't already have the Genie+ entitlement added to your tickets, you may use the Disneyland mobile app to purchase it each day after you enter a theme park. If you prefer, you may purchase Genie+ for only one of your tickets to unlock the PhotoPass entitlement for your party. But if you wish to access Genie+ Lightning Lanes, each Guest must have the Genie+ service added to their ticket.

    Tony's Tip Times Two: I like to use my MagicBand+ to quickly and easily link photos taken by PhotoPass photographers. For attraction photos, I use my mobile phone's camera to take a picture of the photo ID displayed at the attraction exit. My phone lets me tap and hold my finger on the letter and numbers of the ID in the photo to copy it to my phone’s clipboard. Then, I can easily paste the ID into the Disneyland mobile app. That saves me a little time and a lot of frustration when I inevitably forget the number or mistype it in the app.

    Now go, make some memories, Yadira!
