    If my 14 year old and I become pass holders in our next trip - how does the Photo Pass work? Are we on separate accounts or can they be linked together so it doesn’t matter which one of us scan our magic bands?

    Hi Kristine!  I think you are going to love becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder.  While there are many perks and benefits offered to Annual Passholders, to me the best benefit is that downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos are included with the purchase of your Annual Pass.  I love reminiscing about all our vacation fun through our photos.

    You and your teen will be able to view and download each other's photos no matter how you have set up your My Disney Experience accounts.  If you have created a profile for your child in your account, you likely will need to do nothing.  You should be able to see all your Disney PhotoPass photos in your account, no matter which band has been scanned, even if you weren't together at the time the photo was captured.  If instead your teen has their own My Disney Experience account, you'll need to link your accounts to view each other's photos.  You can do this by selecting the "Add a Guest" feature in your Family & Friends List, and inviting your teen to connect using the email address associated with their Disney account.  Be sure you have set photo sharing permission with each other.  Since each of you will have Annual Passes, you will each be entitled to download all your Disney PhotoPass photos to any of your devices.

    I noticed you are planning your next visit for December.  This is my absolute favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort!  Let me tell you, the halls are DECKED like nowhere else!  I love all the seasonal treats and goodies.  Try the Gingerbread Ice Cream at L'Artisan des Glaces - it is divine!

    I hope that helps!  If you have additional questions, please write us back.  Have a wonderful visit!
