Test Track at Epcot has become the first ride to feature Disney’s Photopass service.
In place of the old video screens which displayed your image and claim number, screens display an image but direct you to a card reader for a Photopass card (to add the photo to the card) and display the number of seconds left to claim/swipe your Photopass before your image expires and a new guest photo appears.
You still have the option of turning around and directly purchasing the photo from the counter across from the video screens. You simply have to claim/swipe, then present your Photopass for purchase at the counter.
This technology is expected to be expanded to several other attractions over time.
