We did it again! We had photos taken at the Photopass Studio at Downtown Disney!
Each trip we try to make at least one stop to the Photopass Studio at Downtown Disney near Guest Services to have family portraits taken by Disney Photopass photographers.
Our experiences have varied from very attentive to obligatory, but each time we have appreciated the variety of photos that were taken and added to our Photopass account.
Since we had pre-paid for Memory Maker prior to our trip—at a discount—we were happy to add as many Photopass photos to our account as possible. We then edited and downloaded the photos once we got home—but actually, you can download them anytime after they appear in your account.
The session did not take long—less than 15 minutes. The largest portion of time was spent waiting in line for the next available Cast Member. There were no other guests getting photographed or waiting to be photographed.
This time, we also arrived in the afternoon. Previously, we have been there first thing in the morning, which may make a difference in wait times, attentiveness of staff, etc.
There is no additional fee to have these photos taken. The only cost is for photo packages, downloads, or print outs. But since we had Memory Maker already, the photos were added to our Photopass account and then downloaded—all for the cost of Memory Maker. We had a total of 484 Photopass photos during our week-long vacation and paid $149 (pre-order) price for Memory Maker—that’s like paying 30 cents per photo.
And, now, we have all of these photos digitally and can use them for a variety of purposes—social media, photo cards, customized gifts, etc.
