Should Your Family Use Disney PhotoPass Service?
Disney truly has thought of everything. Why lug a camera all around the park, into the counter-service eateries, along the rides, and through the monorail? That’s the question that Disney World asked, leading to the development of the Disney PhotoPass Service.
What is Disney PhotoPass Service?
Basically, Disney has professional staff photographers all over the parks. You get a PhotoPass card from a photographer, and show it to any photographer in the park when you want to capture a special moment. It’s a great way to ensure that you have high-quality images of your Disney World trip. Most importantly, you can get snapshots of the entire family. How many pictures do you have from past family vacations where you or spouse seems to be totally absent? When you use Disney PhotoPass service, someone else has the camera so you can be in the picture for a change.
Is this service actually practical?
Disney does a great job at fulfilling its promises. Even in peak season, it’s easy to find photographers in the parks to snap your picture. Photographers can do multiple takes and can even stage “Magic Shots,” where a Disney character is digitally inserted into the image later on. The best thing about Disney PhotoPass? You can get as many pictures taken as you want – there’s no limit!
How much does Disney PhotoPass Service cost?
For $199.95, you can get Disney PhotoPass+, which delivers all of your high-resolution pictures with no strings attached. Buy in advance, and the price drops to $169.95. For many families, $170 isn’t going to be worth it. However, if you hate carrying a camera and want quality pictures with the least amount of effort, Disney PhotoPass is the way to go!
