"Disney Destinations released in their news this week, "With the recent launch of Disney PhotoPass Lenses at Walt Disney World Resort, there’s a super fun new way to capture memories all across the resort and beyond! Guests can interact with themed effects that transform themselves and the world around them – all while snapping as many photos and videos as they'd like on their own device to save and share.
We're excited to share that we’ve just launched even more Disney PhotoPass Lenses! These new Lenses, along with our current collection, are available through the My Disney Experience app with a purchase of Disney Genie+ service. Guests should be sure to download the latest version of the My Disney Experience app to join in on the fun!
With the newest Lenses, Guests can embrace their icy powers like Elsa, adopt a problem free philosophy with Timon, bundle up and avoid the clutches of the Yeti, accessorize with themed glasses that reflect magical icons, and show off their sweet and salty sides!"
Adventurers Navigation Co. agent, Carrie Luedtke, played around with the lenses offered through Disney PhotoPass and Disney Genie+ services on her recent trips this summer and fall! Check out her collection here!
While many Disney PhotoPass Lenses can be used across Walt Disney World Resort, others like the Timon and Expedition Everest Lenses will be available exclusively in specific areas of the parks.
To celebrate this launch, we met with a few of our Disney PhotoPass photographers to give them a first look. Our photographers capture magical moments for our Guests every day, so we wanted to turn the camera lens on them. They got to spend some time enjoying our Lenses, including a sneak peek at the new ones – check it out!
Can't head to Disney any time soon? That's ok! They've got you covered right at home! With the release of the AR Lense updates, Disney also shared that, "A select sampling of lenses are complimentary through the Snapchat app.* One of these lenses is themed to “Lady and the Tramp.” Since Guests can access this lens at home, we invite them and their favorite furry friend to share a plate of spaghetti on a “Bella Notte.”
Disney Destinations also announced, "Whether enjoying these lenses through the My Disney Experience app or the Snapchat app, Guests can share their favorite photos and videos with us on social media by tagging #DisneyPhotoPass for a chance to be featured on our pages!"
Back in April we shared Disney's addition of the MagicMobile service to the My Disney Experience app. MagicMobile's primary function at that point was to allow Guests to use a smartphone to enter the Walt Disney World theme parks. Disney MagicMobile service, is available on eligible iPhones, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phones. Disney promotes MagicMobile to give Guests an easy, contactless option to experience select theme park features during their visit – similar to how they use the MagicBand!
Disney MagicMobile passes offer several fun pass designs to choose from – including a few new ones featuring the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection! Once they create their Disney MagicMobile pass, Guests can find it in Apple Wallet or Google Pay and use it to:
Pro tip: With an iPhone or Apple Watch, Guests can simply hold their device near the access point and the device will automatically bring up their Disney MagicMobile pass.
Disney Destinations recently share, "A smart device can be a one-stop shop for Guests to experience the magic during their visit. The My Disney Experience app also enables Disney Resort hotel Guests to unlock their room door using our current digital room key feature. Also available in the app, our complimentary Disney Genie service can help Guests create their best Disney day inspired by their party’s top interests! Click here to learn more about Disney Genie. Guests should be sure to download the My Disney Experience app so they can enjoy Disney MagicMobile service and more during their next visit!"
With all of this new technology of course comes all of the "requirements" for proper function of the services and app! Please note:
