The idea behind this focuses on the already existing photo opportunities. There are some cases where you may not be allowed to take pictures. Such as if you are at the Highland Stables with the horse on display, the photographer will not allow your friend to take a picture of you with the horse. Also, there are some people who don't would prefer or get park pictures over taking their own.

For those who do already purchase prints in the park, this seems like a nice alternative to buying a photo in the park. You get to pay for a card that allows you have an unlimited amount of digital pictures to share and save.

This could be helpful for those who get tours and want their pictures this way instead of on a CD perhaps?

No, PhotoKey is the name of the purchase option. Instead of buying prints, you buy the digital copies that are given to you via the card.

So, I am going to step into the line of fire and say that I think this is something I would use. Not at BG, but possibly at SW and DC. Many of the animal interactions are hard to capture on film, because guests don't have access to the right vantage points. I'm thinking of things like the Dolphin and Sea Lion feedings at SW, and pretty much everything at DC.

There was one year that we were able to pay for unlimited digital pictures at SW and it was really great. They had taken a ton of pictures of us that we simply couldn't get ourselves (even with our underwater camera). I wouldn't have been interested in prints at all, and I certainly didn't want t buy all of them separately. But I had no problem paying the flat rate and getting all of my pics for the entire day digitally. I was disappointed they discontinued the offer, in fact.

So. Yeah. I think it is a great idea.

It's probably the perfect time to update the park's photo offerings.  I am unable to find it right now, but a recent article about the whole selfie phenomenon had some amazing statistics.  For example, something like 60% of the Millennial generation have background photos of themselves on their devices.  BTW, it really bugs me that a photo taken by someone else is now called a selfie!

Update: Found it!

So it's basically Disney's Photopass, except outside of the entrance gates and getting pictures with Clydesdale there's really nothing else in the park that gets a photographer.

While I don't mind the idea of it, in fact I kinda like it. I just don't see that many opportunities around the park to justify it. Not unless they're gonna start hiring more employees just to put photographers everywhere.

I never buy the ride photos but if these were included, it would be nice and make PhotoKey all the more interesting.

You forgot about ride photos. Also, Christmastown used to have a bunch of photo booths (I have one with my kids and a giant penguin wearing a multi-color scarf sitting right here on my desk). Maybe they'll be bringing them back?

Okay so add 5 or 6 more pictures to it, that still only gives you 7 or 8 pictures. Which still doesn't seem all that worth it imo.

I could maybe see it for CT. But even then, unless you're gonna hit up all the characters it just doesn't seem that worth it.

I agree with Nicole, this seems better suited for the Florida parks than up here.

I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet but has anyone looked at the Products section of the site? Guests can directly turn their photos into items such as mugs or laptop cases.

I had attempted to earlier but was thwarted. Now that it is fixed I will take a look.

I think it would depend on their price structure. If it were unlimited photo downloads for a flat fee for the entire year, including CT? You can get a nice album of how the kids grew over the course of the year at BG. Assuming we get a pass again next year, I would get it, if the price weren't too high.

From what I was told, the cards and pricing is dependent on the length of time you select.

Fro example, some card will expire after one day, while others expire after three days. There is an option being looked at for season passes so people can have one for the entire year.

It is one flat fee of unlimited photos for the time period paid for. So if you bought a card for the entire year for say $20, you can definitely get your money's worth.
