The last few years have seen several changes to the PhotoPass service, most notably tying it into to My Disney Experience and MyMagic+. Theme Park Tourist is reporting on some new changes to the service. Three of them should be quite popular, though the fourth might cause some griping.
- Physical Prints and Digital Downloads are no longer seperate purchases. Buy the porint, get the download. This has been a pain point for a long time and its great to see Disney change the policy for this.
- An edit no longer counts as an entirely new picture to buy.
- My Disney Experience app now gives PhotoPass locations around the parks by picking the new PhotoPass option in the menu.
- Now lets talk about the change that's liable to irritate some people. Looking at Photos on the website now has a makor water mark on it, actually a repeating water mark that can make it hard to spot yourself on some attraction photos. This is to deter people from screenshoting the pic and not buying it which I can understand, but you could argue they got a little carried away here. Instead of say one watermark, they have the water mark repeat down the image 4-5 times.
