New Disney PhotoPass Augmented Reality Lenses Now Available at the Walt Disney World Resort

Have you had a chance to try the new Disney PhotoPass lenses at the Walt Disney World Resort yet? These fun, augmented reality lenses make for some entertaining selfies, photos, and quick videos all around the Walt Disney World Resort, and the Disney Parks Blog just shared the news that even more designs and lenses are now available!

The lenses can be used for photos taken on your own phone so you can save and share them however you like. You do need Disney Genie+ service (which comes with an added fee) included in your My Disney Experience app to access the lenses, but you may find the lenses plus the other components of Disney Genie+ to be worth the additional cost. If you do not see the options for Disney PhotoPass lenses when you launch the My Disney Experience app, be sure to try updating your app to the latest version.

The newly available lenses include a wide range of Disney characters like Elsa from ‘Frozen,’ and Timon from ‘The Lion King,’ and even lenses based on Disney parks attractions like a snowy scene referencing the Yeti of Expedition Everest: Legend of the Forbidden Mountain in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Select lenses are also available through Snapchat, including some themed to “Lady and the Tramp,” (so you can reenact the classic spaghetti scene during “Belle Notte!” We can’t wait to dive into Disney Genie+ during our next visit to see what else we can try out now for augmented reality lenses.
