One of the things that I’ve been looking forward to since the introduction of MyMagic+ and MagicBands was the ability to see your on-ride photos (and now videos) automatically added to your My Disney Experience online account for you to be able to view at home. Today, that option officially became a reality. Now guests who are wearing a MagicBand will have their on-ride photos automatically linked to your account and you don’t have to do a thing!
For those who don’t have a MagicBand, that’s ok; you can still have the option to add the photos to your account. Simply stop at the on-ride photo display at the end of the attraction and find your photo. From there, you’ll need to have your RFID ticket scanned at a touch point and the photos will be added to your account.
Guests will be able to see on-ride photos (and videos) added to their My Disney Experience account from the following attractions:
- Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (video)
- Space Mountain
- Splash Mountain
- Test Track
- Rock n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (video)
- Expedition Everest
The Disney Parks Blog mentioned that anyone who had been in the parks over the course of the past 45 days, their photos would already be able to be found in their MDE accounts. So I decided to test it. I logged in and wouldn’t you know it? It was true! Photos from my on-ride experiences from my previous trips were in fact there.
Do keep in mind that all Disney PhotoPass photos and videos do have an expiration date; expiring 45 days after photos were taken. So if you would like to purchase an on-ride photo, make sure to do it before the window expires.
This is a great perk for those who want to be able to purchase these photos when you return home after your vacation, especially if you didn’t pre-purchase the Memory Maker option. Disney’s PhotoPass is clearly on the move thanks to MyMagic+ and I’m curious to see where things are headed.
