Best Disney World Photopass Locations

Let’s be real. The goal of a trip to Walt Disney World is all about having fun and sharing those memories with your friends and family.

2020 vs 1994 is where we get into the changes of technology, as I remember going to Disneyland armed with my disposal cameras and didn’t know what photos I took until getting to a local photo developing store a week after my trip!

My how things have changed!

Disney has recognized that the goal for families is to share everything digitally, and the last thing that you want to do is have someone missing from the photo because they’re behind the camera. This is where Disney’s Photopass service comes into play.

Disney’s Photopass allows everyone to get in the photo while a Photopass Photographer captures the memories.

For everyone who doesn’t know, you can purchase Memory Maker, which allows you to have all the Photopass “Media” (ie photos, videos, on-ride, etc) available digitally for you to download, edit and share. The price is usually around $200, with an advance purchase price that saves you around $30 if you buy it 3 days before you intend to use it.

The bonus is that Photopass Photographers will also use YOUR camera if you’d like, so you never feel pressured into purchasing Memory Maker.
