    This is in regards to the new Genie plus. My question is on the photo pass plus side. Do you the cast members who have the cameras still give out the cards? Or when we buy the genie plus do we get a photo pass card?

    It’s a small world after all, Stephanie, and I’m so glad you found your way back to planDisney

    I recently used Disney Genie+ Service with my fellow planDisney pals at Disneyland Resort, and we had such a blast! We got to experience so many attractions together, but I think our favorite part of the day was taking advantage of the Disney PhotoPass downloads included with Genie+! We had several photoshoots with some awesome PhotoPass photographers… what fun memories we made that day!

    Now, I can’t wait for you to experience the magic of Disney Genie+ during your upcoming getaway! To answer your question, yes, the PhotoPass photographers can still hand out the PhotoPass cards as needed. You can get one with or without Disney Genie+. With Disney Genie+, however, the difference is that all of your PhotoPass downloads from the day are free! So, as soon as you link your PhotoPass photos, you’ll be able to download and share them, without any separate purchases needed. Be sure to keep an eye out for PhotoPass opportunities on select attractions and at dining locations, too. 

    If you prefer not to worry about hanging on to the PhotoPass card all day, another option is to show your PhotoPass Code from your Disneyland app to your PhotoPass photographer, so they can easily scan it for you. A fun tip is to take a screenshot of your PhotoPass Code and save it as your wallpaper on your phone – then, when it’s time to scan your PhotoPass Code, you can access it quickly from your phone’s wallpaper. You can locate your PhotoPass Code from the “Photos” section of your Disneyland app. Click on “Link Photos” in the upper right corner, and then select “Show PhotoPass Code.” 

    I hope this helps you harness the power of Disney Genie+ this June, Stephanie! Please stop by with any additional questions… we’re all EARs!

    Wishing you magic,
