    We are visiting Aulani in May and I have seen people say they can pay for Photopass for the week through the DL app. What if I am a MK holder at DL resort and my pass comes with Photopass? Do I still need to buy it for Auani?

    Aloha Stacie and welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited that in just a short time you’ll be enjoying the beautiful beach, splashing in the waves and floating down the Waikolohe Stream at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. My family visited the resort exactly a year ago, and I dream of returning! Let’s take a look at your PhotoPass question. 

    My family loves sharing our vacation photos with family friends and each time we see photos that capture special moments, we’re flooded with memories about the amazing adventures we had. Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers help snap moments both posed and candid and what I love most about this is that my entire family is in the photos! As a Disneyland Resort Magic Key Holder, you’re no doubt familiar with Disney’s friendly PhotoPass photographers and I’m happy to say that you’ll find PhotoPass photographers working hard to preserve your family’s special moments at Aulani whether you’re meeting Characters, exploring the resort or even enjoying a breath-taking sunset on the incredible beaches of Ko Olina. 

    Stacie, I spoke with an Aulani Resort Cast Member today and inquired about PhotoPass. Unfortunately while the photos are accessed through the Disneyland Mobile App, the Aulani PhotoPass Service is separate. You’ll still have the opportunity to purchase your photos either individually, daily or from the duration of your stay at Aulani Resort in either print or digital form. When you first have a photo taken with a PhotoPass photographer, you can ask for a PhotoPass card and continue to use it so that all of your photos will be on the one card. When you’re ready to view or purchase your photos, you can visit the PhotoPass Imaging station which is located just outside the entrance of Makahiki (open from 7am until 8pm).  

    Tip: I like to take a photo of the code on the back of the PhotoPass card in case it gets misplaced (this way I won’t lose any photos). 

    I hope this helps you, Stacie! If you have any further Aulani Resort questions, please swing by our planDisney ‘ohana and ask me here. 

    A Hui Hou, (this means until we see each other again in Hawaiian)
