Note that the photos that Guests can get digital downloads for have to have been taken in the Theme Park on the day of their purchase of Genie+. Guests can enjoy this service for attractions, including Space Mountain, Slinky Dog Dash, Test Track, Expedition Everest, and more.

Disneyland Resort Guests also get complimentary photos (both at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park) though their services began on February 4.

Disney Parks Blog took to their platform to share the announcement, also adding a few other updates to their previously announced additions of free parking for Disney Resort hotel Guests and the relaxed reservation requirements for Annual Passholders at the Disney Resort.

With all of the recent complaints about the Disney Genie service (typically consisting of Genie+ and Lightning Lane), we’re glad that Disney is taking note and alleviating some of those frustrations for Guests (even if not all). And from Disney’s end, this is certainly proof that they are, in fact, continuing to listen to fans’ feedback about their products and the Disney experience.
