August 19: PhotoPass Day at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts

Mark your calendars for August 19! That’s the day that Disney PhotoPass Day is returning to Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts!

What IS PhotoPass Day? Well, August 19 is actually World Photo Day, so PhotoPass Day is Disney’s way of celebrating that “holiday.” (Yes, we know, there’s a “day” for everything these days!)

During this event, Disney PhotoPass Service will offer a number of exclusive photo opportunities around its theme parks and other areas on both coasts. (Entertainment and photo opportunities are subject to change. Some locations could be affected by inclement weather.)
