    Hello, I am wondering how the photopass works? Is this something I can buy ahead of time, at the gate or at the time of the first picture being taken?

    Hi, Jyoti! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I am always amazed at the amount of wonderful PhotoPass photos we end up with at the end of a Disneyland Resort vacation. So many adorable photos are taken with characters, at photo spots around the parks, and of course on attractions! There are a few different ways to gain access to downloads of your PhotoPass photos:

    1. Purchase Disney MaxPass. In addition to being able to make FASTPASS selections on your mobile device from anywhere in the parks, you also receive downloads of all your PhotoPass photos taken on a day that you use MaxPass. You can upgrade to MaxPass when you buy your tickets in advance or you can purchase it when you are at the parks.
    2. Purchase PhotoPass+ One Week and get downloads of all your photos taken over the course of seven days. You can purchase this in advance, while at the parks, or after you have returned home. (You have 45 days after the photo was captured to purchase and download.)
    3. Purchase the PhotoPass Collection Product while you are at the parks only. This product allows you to download all the images linked to your account at the time of redemption, provides you with a voucher for a printed photo from a character dining location, and a Disneyland Resort Gallery Disc.
    4. You can purchase individual downloads of your images while are in the parks or after you return home.

    As you can see, you can pick the option that will work best for you! Download the Disneyland app in order to easily link photos to your account, view your photos (even before you purchase them), download the photos directly to your mobile device, and so much more.

    I hope this helps!
