°o° Should you get the Photopass+
Our answer would be yes. If you're going to Disneyland, get the Photopass+. We're not trained professional photographers, we don't know the light and all the jazz for the different areas of Disneyland. (If you are, then you can likely skip this cost of you want) Plus getting it meant everyone could be in photos.
We went with the Photopass+ One Week option, which is $78 USD. We were able to load the Disneyland app onto Tamara's phone before the trip as well as our have this connected to our account.
When we saw a photographer and had photos taken for the first time we were given a card. We kept this one card for the whole trip and loaded all photos to its code. We were also able to add the odd other card to our account in the Disney app. This happened if the group separated, or a certain preschooler decided she wanted her own card with her own photos.
If you see a photographer... take photos! Lots of photos. Alskfor magic moment photos where some photographs can make Tinkerbell, Chip, balloons, Zero, and more appear. Use the Photopass when you meet characters and there's a photographer. Just use it an the time! We ended up with hundreds of photos to go through.
You can also get the photos that are taken on attractions like California Screamin' or Splash Mountain. Those photos are displayed on a screen work a code of their own. Write it down, or put it in your phone. Then add that code to your app too!
Our favourite is that photographers grab sudden moments like this that happen. Addie took off crawling right away to Elsa and Evie. Sure it's a smidge blurry, but it caught a memory we missed because our camera was still being pulled out.
You can also check all your photos on the app as they load. You don't have to activate your Photopass+ til later which is nice because it gives you more time to download them. Or activate it right away and stay downloading images to share with family and friends back home... and on Instagram.
