One of the unrealized promises of Disney’s MyMagic+ technology is the ability to match up your magic band with your face for some surprise photopass photos and videos around the park. That promise is now a lot closer to reality with the latest offerings from Walt Disney World.
One of the new ways you can harvest some picture-perfect vacation memories is with a limited-time photo and video capture in the East Plaza Garden at the Magic Kingdom (the Tomorrowland side). Look for a photopass cast member and ask them where you can find the super-zoom photo and video spot. You get both a posed photo and a unique shot from a high angle in the park.
Disney has also rolled out a few new character meet and great photo videos. This is not something completely new, A few Disney attractions have had them for a while, but we always like getting them on in our download folder.
You can see more examples on this post at the Disney Parks Blog.
To take best advantage of the Photopass service, you need the Memory Maker package. It comes with some annual passes or you can purchase it separately.
