PhotoPass at Disney

Yesterday we took a trip to Disney! The group of 6 (my family plus my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and nephew) went to both Disney MGM Studios and the Magic Kingdom. Most of us in Orlando have been to Disney at some point in our lives, but this time around they had something new that I was very excited about!

Photo Pass is the new way Disney is using to keep track of pictures you have taken in the park. After your first picture, they give you a card that is scannable by their cameras and also has a special code on the back. Then, each time you are wanting to take a new picture you just hand the card to the photographer.

The best part? You can take it home and access your photos online for free as well as share them with family and friends! They also give you 30 days to decide which you want to buy and what sizes. No more waiting at the photo counter at the end of a long day to see how your pictures came out and decide if you want any of them.

And they take great pictures! Here is my son and I with Eeyore:

    Hi. I went to Disney and took some photopass pictures myself. Nice pictures, but they are way too expensive to order. And in the web site you only have access to a small sized sample picture that is not good to print. I wish they gave you access to a larger image :(

    Hi Guys,

    I just figured out one way. Click the thumbnail you like. This will then take you to the 5×7 size. Now go to your file and click save as, now go to my pictures and go to the file section. You will see Disney Photopass File, open it. From there go to the file “proxy” and highlight it. Now cut it and click back which takes you to my pictures files, right click inside the file section and click paste. Now you have it saved as a 5×7 in your picture files and your off to the races, for FREE!!

    I think what he means is.. find the pic you want, get it to 5×7, then go to view menu and select source. this will open up a new window, hit ctrl-f to do a search for the word proxy. it will find a web address that will start followed by a long number, copy the entire address without the ‘ and ; at then end into a new browser window and you can save the photo. The other way would be to just hit PrintScreen on your keyboard and then paste it into Paint and cut the pic out.

    Or you can do it Lee’s way……apparently Lee has worked at NASA as a Rocket Scientist for a number of years……just got to figure out that whole re-entry problem there, hey Lee??
