Disney has launched a brand new website for Disney PhotoPass for guests who visit Walt Disney World. (Disney PhotoPass, for those who are unaware, is where guests have opportunity to get high-resolution photographs taken by Disney photographers in various locations throughout the park, ensuring that everyone is in the photo. Guests will then be able to order these photographs once they return home so they have their vacation memories.)
The Photopass website will now be able to work in unison with the MyMagic+ system. While in the parks, PhotoPass photographers will now be able to scan a guest’s MagicBand and your photos that are taken will be associated with your account.
The new site will be able to be found at www.MyDisneyPhotoPass.com. From there, Walt Disney World guests will need click on the Walt Disney World button.
If you are ordering products from Disneyland, ESPN Wide World of Sports, and Aulani, you will be directed to DisneyPhotoPass.com. Guests who have visited the resort prior to September 4, will still be able to order their old photos, using the old site and policies, until they expire. Once those photos have expired, the new version of the site will be the only version of the site that Walt Disney World guests will experience.
Once you get to the new site, guests will be prompted to enter their My Disney Experience username and password. In addition, you will be able to access this from your My Disney Experience account.
Here you will be able to see any photos taken, or if they don’t appear automatically, you may have to enter in a Disney PhotoPass ID or your resort reservation, or link your MagicBand.
Another change is that the expiration policy for your PhotoPass photos has changed. Now, with the change, PhotoPass photos, dining photos or attraction photos, will all expire 45 days from the date they were taken. This will mean that the expiration date of your photos will vary, so your first day of your trip will disappear once the 45 days hits, while the others will remain, being removed each consecutive day after. Guests may extend that time period for an extra 15 days, totaling 60 days, again, from the date they were taken. The extension can only be done once.
A few additional changes regarding ordering products have cropped up, as well. First, the PhotoPass CD has been renamed as the Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc. The price remains at $169.00. Also, guests will no longer be able to upload and add their own photos to the CD. Guests will still be able to use their own uploaded photos to order other photo products.
