Disney PhotoPass, gives guests the ability to view and purchase photos taken by Disney Photographers online and at the theme parks. When visitors have their photos taken, they’re issued a “PhotoPass” which has the web address and a 16 digit ID number imprinted on it. If you've taken your own photos, you can upload them on the PhotoPass website and add them to the products they offer as listed below.
NEW! - If guests are wearing an active MagicBand when they ride on select attractions, the photos will automatically be added to their My Disney Experience account. This is retroactive and any photos from the middle of September on may be added to the account. For guests without a MagicBand, there are new touch points at Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain and Splash Mountain. After riding, find your photo on the preview wall and touch your park ticket or Memory Maker card to the touch point and your photo will be added to your account. Touch points are being added to the other parks by mid-November.
You'll find Disney PhotoPass photographers at the following locations:
When you dine at the following restaurants, you can opt to purchase tableside photos which will then be added to your PhotoPass account. (these will no longer be offered after 1/4/15. Instead, photos can be viewed and purchased on the My Disney Experience app and website)

Animated Magic Shots are now available with Memory Maker
An animated video overlay will be added to select photos taken on your Memory Maker account. These photos are available at Epcot (Norway Pavilion or behind Spacehip Earth), Hollywood Studios (on Hollywood Boulevard) and Animal Kingdom (on the bridge near Expedition Everest). See an example of these photos here: http://youtu.be/aBW7H9I_PbY
Memory Maker links all photos taken by a PhotoPass photographer, select dining and attraction photos and any of your family's own photos to your My Disney Experience account. When getting your photo taken, have the photographer add the photos to your MagicBand, Memory Maker card or Disney PhotoPass card.
Photos will be available for download (unlimited number of downloads) the day they were taken and can be accessed for 45 days from that date. Before downloading, guests will have the option of editing the photos or adding specialty borders and stickers. You will have 30 days from the first download to take more pictures with your Memory Maker account.
Memory Maker can now be purchased after your trip. Previously it had only been available in advance or on-site. Guests with MagicBands will automatically have photos added to their My Disney Experience, so they may return home and find that they have enough photos and videos in their accounts to make the purchase worthwhile.
Memory Maker can be purchased in advance for $149 and on-site for $199. If it is purchased in advance, any photos taken within 3 days of purchase will not be included. Memory Maker does not include a photo CD; this is available at an additional price.
Before downloading any photos, Memory Maker must be linked to your My Disney Experience. The Memory Maker entitlement can only be linked on one person's profile, but it can be reassigned to someone else. Your Memory Maker can be accessed by anyone on your My Disney Experience Family & Friends list, but only one person can dowload the photos. They can be easily shared with others once downloaded.
Attraction photos are automatically added at the end of a ride. RFID technology reads your MagicBand and adds the photo to your Memory Maker account. The attraction photos can only be seen by the person who added the Memory Maker entitlement, not by the Friends and Family list, even though the photos are available.
Guests who have a MagicBand and a Memory Maker photo package linked to their My Disney Experience account - After riding The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a video of the guest's ride will be added to their My Disney Experience account. This video is only available to guests who have purchased Memory Maker.
