Disney PhotoPass Changes Coming to Disney World Including Not Taking Photos With Guest Phones

    Disney PhotoPass has announced changes that it will be making to promote cleanliness, physical distancing and reduced contact. Here are the changes guests can expect when the parks first reopen:

    • Handling Guest’s Personal Devices: Disney PhotoPass photographers will not handle Guests’ personal devices such as cellphones and cameras.
    • Photo Prop Usage: Where photo props are in use, they will be thoroughly cleaned between Guests. For select props, your photographer may request that you stand next to or behind the prop without making contact with it. In these scenarios, your photographer will endeavor to capture your photos with the best angles and perspective in mind.
    • Photo Linking: Before the photographer takes your photo, please have your MagicBand or Card ready for the photographer to scan so they can quickly link your photos to your account. Photographers will keep as much distance as possible during this process.

    As always, keep checking back with us here at BlogMickey.com for the latest Disney Parks news and photos. We’ll continue to bring you news and photos, where possible, through the Disney Parks closure due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will resume our normal coverage once the parks reopen to guests on July 11th!


    1. We were thinking of purchasing a PhotoPass Option for our October trip since we are lousy cellphone photographers. Is the price worth it? It seems very expensive but IF this is our last visit to WDW before selling our Orlando timeshare, it may be worth the price. What do you guys think?

    2. Normally I would say it is definitely worth it if you are there for a few days. Lack of character meet and greets will lower the value somewhat. We had annual passes last year and have a ton of pictures. You need to take advantage of it by approaching the photographers at various places and making sure you get the ride photos where you need to scan you magic band or card.

    3. By having the photopass, it insures that I am in at least some of the pictures because I am the only one taking pics most of the time!!
