This article has been updated since it was originally published to reflect the latest available free Disney Parks PhotoPass media.
If you’ve been missing the Disney Parks as much as the ITM team has, last night’s stream of the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular at Walt Disney World Resort probably made your week (or maybe your 2020, at this point!).
We loved seeing our beloved Disney fireworks show again. It’s been too long! Now, the team at Disney has bestowed an extra dose of magic on Disney World and Disneyland fans, no Magic Band scanning or PhotoPass photographer required.
If you have the Disneyland app or the WDW My Disney Experience app, you’re in for a treat. When you login and click “Photos,” you should see four complimentary PhotoPass pictures on both Disney Parks apps.
Both the Disney World app and Disneyland app have pop-up rules and regulations regarding the new free PhotoPass images.
The message states, “Disney PhotoPass Service is adding complimentary media to your photo gallery! Complimentary media will be available for you to view and download for 45 from the date it is added to your gallery. The Disney PhotoPass Terms & Conditions will apply to this complimentary media, although standard Expiration Policy referenced therein will not.”
The free Disneyland PhotoPass photos feature two images from Disneyland Park and two images from Disney California Adventure.
Disneyland app users will receive all of the professional Disney photos seen here including a gorgeous shot of Sleeping Beauty Castle at twilight, the Partners Statue at the end of DLR’s Main Street U.S.A., a photo of Mickey Mouse in his retro Hollywood newsboy outfit, and a stunning shot of a Pixar Pier sunset!
The PhotoPass section of the My Disney Experience app features four different pictures for Walt Disney World fans. All four showcase the Happily Ever After fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom.
The final image showcases the Partner Statue at the Florida Disney theme park. This statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse holding hands can be found at every Disney Park around the world.
On May 1, the Disneyland and My Disney Experience apps each received new Disney Parks images for fans to download! These are perfectly sized to serve as phone wallpapers and they’re sure to send a jolt of Disney magic through you every time you unlock your device.
The Disneyland app has four new downloadable images, including a nighttime view of Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land, a fun photo of the Pixar Pal Around Ferris wheel on Pixar Pier at Disney’s California Adventure, an eerily beautiful photo of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park, and a brightly colored bouquet of Disneyland Mickey Mouse ears balloons!
Disney World’s My Disney Experience app had eight new Disney Parks images pushed to the PhotoPass portal. Five of these new free downloadable Disney pictures feature Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which celebrates its 31st birthday today!
Fans of the glitz and glamour of DHS will enjoy a photo of the Tower of Terror’s Hollywood Tower Hotel and four photos of characters from The Incredibles, including Frozone, Edna Mode, and Elastigirl, and Mr. Incredible.
The other three images celebrate Disney World’s additional trio of parks. Cinderella Castle represents the Magic Kingdom, a close-up of Spaceship Earth represents Epcot, and the iconic Tree of Life represents Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Remember, like Walt said, “It all started with a mouse!” Which of these limited time complimentary PhotoPass images is going to be your phone wallpaper first?
We know how hard it is to wait to get back to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. The best way to beat the Disney closure blues is to start planning your next vacation!
