Photopass still worth it?

Weíre off to DLP soon and noticed that Photopass has increased by nearly £20 since our last visit there. Has anyone been this year and found more official photograph opportunities? Otherwise the price increase now seems to just cover the rides itís available on, so doesnít seem good value anymore (six rides now at just over £10 a photo if done once, assuming theyíre all open anyway) Thoughts?

We were there last weekend and didnít see a single roaming a photopass photographer - castle shots and Main Street all have to be selfies or asking another guest. We also seem to be too slow getting off rides to get the ride photos or we are blind as bats and canít see ours on the screen.

But we had lovely photopass shots at the character meets in studios, though a CM also took pictures on my own camera. I didnít even ask, I just put it down with my coat for the photo and they picked it and snapped away.

So... basically Iíve just paid for a year of photopass so I hate to say itís not necessary, but last weekend... it really wasnít.

They have occasionally trialled a castle photographer but it is very rare. The photographers are only for a handful of rides and some of the character meets.

For me, unless you are staying maybe 5 days and doing a lot of meets - itís not worth the money.

I would say that it isn't worth the money. I have never seen a photographer by the castle and it's probably more cost effective now to buy the ride photos if you want them ( and you can actually see yourself because nobody has their hands in front of your face - but that's another story).

Anaheim has plenty around - in front of the castle and other popular rides, lands and landmarks. Plus it only costs $15 per day!


Disneyland Paris definitely is not worth it unless you think photos on your own camera arenít good enough quality or youíre desperate for ride photos.

I donít think it was ever worth it.

Anaheim has lots, pretty much somewhere in every land across both parks, and usually really quite fun photographers in a good mood. I went with a group of 21 in January and thought weíd be a nightmare for Photopass but they were awesome with us, and yep, just $15 for a day of pictures as long as you pay it on the day.
