    Hi Moms! Traveling to Disney World on Sunday and having dinner at Chef Mickey's that night. How can I activate my photopass + before going to dinner without eating the parks? Staying at BLT. Thanks

    Hi Shirley.

    I'm so happy to tell you that activating your PhotoPass+ prior to your dinner at Chef Mickey's is quite easily done! Although there is no Disney's PhotoPass location at Disney's Contemporary Resort, there are several locations that are close by and easy to get to on your arrival day without needing to enter a park.

    Simply jump onto the Monorail and visit one of the other Deluxe Resort locations nearby which have a PhotoPass location. One of these is Disney's Polynesian Resort, adjacent to Trader Jack's in the main lobby of the Great Ceremonial House. This location's hours are 8am-noon and again from 5pm-9pm daily. I was advised by the Cast Members at Trader Jack's that while these are the 'posted' hours, most often, the PhotoPass Desk has a Cast Member present for some of the afternoon as well. There is also a PhotoPass location in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort which operates under similar hours as listed above. 

    You may consider having your Concierge Cast Member at Bay Lake Tower or Disney's Contemporary Resort call over to the Polynesian or Grand Floridian Resort for you to confirm the PhotoPass desk's hours of operation that day prior to hopping onto the Resort Monorail.

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel with your question Shirley!
    If you think of additional questions prior to your visit, please feel free to write me back. I'd love to hear from you again.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
