Unearth Two New Disney PhotoPass Offerings

The Disney PhotoPass team is gearing up for Halfway to Halloween with the launch of two creepy cool things at Walt Disney World Resort.

First stop: The 5th Dimension. Get your subdued smiles and gloomy glares ready. There’s a storm brewing near the Hollywood Tower Hotel!

The newest Disney PhotoPass Lens launches today, and it’ll make clients feel like they’ve stepped back in time to Halloween night, 1939. Tip: When using this Lens, go far enough down Sunset Boulevard to hear the shrieks of those onboard the attraction. It really adds to the mood.

This Lens is available to use only on Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios through the My Disney Experience app with the purchase of Disney Genie+ service.*



Starting today, all foolish mortals materializing onboard The Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom Park will notice that their photo will have a new look. As they’re known to do, the grim grinning ghosts are coming out to socialize – in the dead space of Guests’ photos! And if clients ride this attraction multiple times, they’ll notice that each time they ride, a different ghost might follow them home.



Remember, there’s no photo preview wall at the exit of this attraction where Guests can link their photo, so there are two options to have it automatically linked to a Disney account while riding:

  • Use a mobile device. Enable Bluetooth® for the My Disney Experience app before riding, ensure you’ve logged into the app sometime earlier that day, and keep the device out of low power mode. Then just put the device in a pocket or bag while enjoying the ride.**
  • Wear a MagicBand that’s linked to a Disney account.

This update at the Haunted Mansion is the first in our ongoing efforts to enhance onboard photos at some of your favorite Walt Disney World Resort attractions.

Next time clients head off to Magic Kingdom Park or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, they can enjoy these cadaverous capture opportunities!

*With the purchase of Disney Genie+ service, Walt Disney World guests can access many Disney PhotoPass Lenses in the My Disney Experience app as soon as they enter the park. Select Disney PhotoPass Lenses are accessible only within designated areas of Walt Disney World Resort. Other Disney PhotoPass Lenses will remain accessible in the My Disney Experience app until 5:59 a.m. on the 45th day after the day on which the Disney Genie+ service was used; certain states and localities are excluded. Many Disney PhotoPass Lenses use technology that detects the coordinates of key points on a guest’s face and/or hands and may be used only by guests 18 years of age and older who have consented to use of this technology. Therefore, guests unable to provide such consent, as well as guests under 18 years of age, will have fewer lenses available to use. To access Disney PhotoPass Lenses, an eligible mobile device with the My Disney Experience app with access to the device’s camera and location is required. A purchase of Disney Genie+ service at Walt Disney World Resort does not include downloads of a guest’s Disney PhotoPass photos or videos that were captured by photographers and onboard attractions. Use of Disney PhotoPass Lenses is subject to the Terms and Conditions. Subject to restrictions and change without notice.

**Message, data and roaming rates may apply. Availability subject to handset limitations and features may vary by handset, service provider or otherwise. Coverage and app stores not available everywhere. If you’re under 18, get your parents’ permission first.
