    I am a Walt Disney World passholder with photo pass add on, am I able to use my photo pass at Disneyland when I visit?

    Why hello there Claudia, I'd like to welcome you to planDisney!

    I recently did some Disney Destination hopping myself over to Disneyland Resort from Florida, and I also wondered whether my Memory Maker purchase or Annual Passholder Disney PhotoPass Downloads benefit would still apply as I flew over to California to take advantage of the many photo opportunities to be found with Disney PhotoPass. Here's my personal experience in the hope that it'll help you out with your upcoming journey over there:

    Upon our arrival, we immediately sought out one of the picturesque photo spots at Disney California Adventure Park and after taking our photo, I scanned my MagicBand+ like I usually would. As it turns out, though they share the same name the Disney PhotoPass product over at Disneyland Resort operates separately and requires its own purchase in order to have access and download your photos. I confirmed with the PhotoPass Cast Members who let me know that unfortunately, the Disney PhotoPass offerings at Walt Disney World Resort don't apply across the country, and we would have to purchase a product like Disney PhotoPass+ One Day for this particular visit.

    You might be as delighted as we were to discover that purchasing Disney Genie+ service to take advantage of Lightning Lane access over at Disneyland Resort actually provides you with the added benefit of unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from your day - which is certainly something I wish we had over here at Walt Disney World Resort! This can be purchased right from your Disneyland Resort App or added ahead of your visit, which I highly recommend. You'll also want to make sure that you're checking both Disney PhotoPass websites for Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort to make sure you've downloaded all of your photos from either end for safekeeping, just so you don't miss any after your trip. Don't hesitate to come back again for any other tips, tricks or advice ahead of your coast-to-coast adventuring, Claudia!

    Here's hoping your upcoming visit will be picture-perfect!
