    So I was too tired to download our pictures at the end of the day and didn’t realize I had to purchase MaxPass ahead of time. Is there anyway to recover our pics from the past two days!?

    Hiya, Jane, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you had the time of your life at the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    There’s nothing like capturing the magic of your vacation with tons of photos, especially with the convenience of Disney’s PhotoPass Service! Finally, the whole family can get in the picture together! I’m happy to report that yes, you can recover your photos from your recent Disneyland Resort vacation! Though you can’t go back and purchase Disney MaxPass to obtain your photos, you can purchase the photos individually. In fact, your Disney’s PhotoPass photos will be available for 45 days from the date they were taken. 

    So, here’s how it works: 
    1. Log into your Disney account and link your PhotoPass photos by entering the unique ID found on your Disney PhotoPass card or cards. 
    2. Once you’ve linked your PhotoPass photos to your Disney account, you’ll be able to preview your photos on or with the Disneyland app.
    3. Go ahead and select your favorite photos from your gallery and purchase them as downloads or prints!

    And speaking of PhotoPass, have you heard of Magic Shots and Animated Magic Shots? They’re both great ways to add a little extra magic to your park photos. Simply ask your Disney PhotoPass Photographer for a Magic Shot, and they’ll pose you. Afterward, a select Disney Character will appear in your photo – now that’s Disney magic!

    I hope you have fun taking a trip down memory lane as you review your photos. Check out these adorable frames and albums on shopDisney to preserve those magical memories forever! 

    Wishing you a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
