It looks as though Disney is trying out a new system regarding how you get your PhotoPass photos taken in certain areas of the park.

WDW News Today Reports that currently the trial is currently underway at Rapunzel’s Tower, where there isn’t normally a PhotoPass Photographer anyway, making it a bonus picture spot; and will be moving to The Sword in the Stone in Fantasyland in front of the Carousel in the next few days.

Guests activate the camera to take their photo themselves and the photos then link to your PhotoPass account/Memory Maker automatically, just as it normally would when you have your photo taken by a PhotoPass photographer. Cast members have been located near the cameras to assist guests who are willing to try it out, and as a thank you they’ve been receiving their photo download from the stationary camera for free.

As you can imagine, this new system would require permanent structures that contain the cameras to be installed, and could possibly eliminate the need for some PhotoPass photographers.


What do you think about the possibility of automated picture spots throughout the parks?
