How to Download Disney's PhotoPass

by Tamara Runzel

You'll want to capture all the exciting and special moments on your family's vacation to a Disney theme park. Disney offers a PhotoPass service to help you catch those moments. A Disney employee will give you a PhotoPass card with an account number you use to claim your photos later. Photos Disney employees take at any of their parks are later uploaded to your account, and you can download and view them from the PhotoPass website.
