I am sure you have noticed that the PhotoPass photographers are set up in all the very best locations throughout the parks. Whether it is right in front of Cinderella’s Castle, at the entrance to Epcot next to the monorail, in front of the Sorcerer’s hat or Expedition Everest, or countless other great locations in the parks they are positioned in all of the prime locations. If you did not receive a PhotoPass card in your travel package, they will gladly give you one free of charge to carry with you in order to take advantage of all the best photo opps with your family.
I love having all of our memories captured on film. I have photo albums full of Disney memories and I treasure each one of the pictures with my family. Professional photographs can be expensive, though, and that is why I think the very best thing about the PhotoPass photographers is that they are happy to take a picture using your personal camera as well. All you have to do is hand them your PhotoPass card as well as your personal camera and they will take all the pictures for you. This is especially welcome to the person in your family who is usually responsible for taking photographs and never actually appears to be on the trip.
Personally, I appreciate the fact that Disney offers this service to their guests, rather than making families feel that they must purchase photos they really cannot afford. It is just another free little extra they have decided to throw in to make everyone’s trip more memorable.
I usually do purchase some of the PhotoPass pictures, especially for special photo gifts, but I like knowing I don’t have to. Take advantage of this free service the next time you are in the parks and keep smiling!
