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! You can interact with themed effects that transform you and the world around you – all while snapping as many photos and videos as you’d like on your own device to save and share.

Today, I’m 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. Be sure to download the latest version of the My Disney Experience app to join in on the fun!

With the newest Lenses, you can embrace your 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 your sweet and salty sides!

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!


We thank our photographers for all that they do to make our guests’ visit to Walt Disney World Resort extra special.

A select sampling of lenses are complimentary through the Snapchat app.* One of these lenses is themed to “Lady and the Tramp.” Since you can access this lens at home, I invite you and your favorite furry friend to share a plate of spaghetti on a “Bella Notte.”  

Whether enjoying these lenses through the My Disney Experience app or the Snapchat app, share your favorite photos and videos with us on social media by tagging #DisneyPhotoPass for a chance to be featured on our pages.

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 45thday 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 DisneyPhotoPass photos or videos that were captured by photographers and onboard attractions.
