    I have read so much about Photo Pass/Photo Pass CD, but still am a little confused. When do the graphics get added, IE Tinkerbell in our daughters hand, Mickeys autograph? Will I still have to go to the photo spot in the parks if I preorder the CD? Thanks

    Hi Bethany!

     Those super imposed images are often called "magic" shots, and are a fun to have as part of your PhotoPass photos. However, they are not available at just any photo location, and your PhotoPass photographer will need to be aware of the magic shots you'd like, if they are available at their location, so as to "mark" them. has a great guide on PhotoPass and magic shots, just search for the term "photopass disney world" on their site to find a list of locations and which shots may be available throughout the parks.

     In addition, edits such as Mickey's autograph are often added as part of the available backgrounds available to you when you either visit photo centers in the parks or when you return from your vacation and view your photos online through your PhotoPass account. If you would prefer not to visit a photo center in the park, you don't need to worry as plenty of options are available for editing from home online through the PhotoPass site. Let me know if you need any more help with your PhotoPass photos and planning your magical vacation!
