Smile Wristband Photopass they give at BB & TL is brillant

I saw a lady with a photopass with a wrist strap while waiting on line last week, I had never seen one and asked where she got that and she said Typhon Lagoon,, I thought this was brillant, and why don't they issue them for the parks too? how many times are you walking up to character greets trying to logisticize autograph books, camera, pens, backpack, child AND photopass,, having at least one thing secure on my wrist as we make our way sounds like a good idea to me!

I know! We got one at TL a few years ago when it was warmer during our trip. So much easier to keep track of than a card without the bracelet.

I just wear a lanyard and throw it in the plastic pouch facing outwards. That why you don't even need to take it out. The zap it threw the plastic.

I have a few of those that we got at TL last year. This year I attached one of them to a lanyard that my DD wore and attached the other one to the outside of my bag. They worked great!

I agree! This is why we do a WP our first full day.

I saw a tip on another thread somewhere to bring a hole punch and punch the photopass, being careful not to mess with the bar code on the back . I intend to try this on our next trip...I already have the wrist band

I don't know if people realize, but you can reuse your photopass cards from trip to trip. Once your cards are tied to your photopass account they are good indefinitely. The old pictures on the card expire, of course, but once you add new pictures they start on a new timeframe.

I think they should all be that way. The card is like a quarter the size which is great in itself, the onoy reason the other card needs to be big is so it doesnt get lost in your pocket. Perhaps next time i will take a pair of scissors, a hole punch and a rubber band and waterparkify my own card

I had no idea. This is a great tip. Will this activate my 30 days to order right away since the card has already been tied to my account from a previous trip?

Yes it will. That is why I get new photopass cards each year. With a two week trip, I'd only have 2 weeks to fininsh editing.

I really like the mini photopass cards at the waterparks. I heard you could get them at Pixie Hallow, but I didn't see any Photopass photographers with them.

Also at the water parks you can get Disney Gift Cards which are half normal size and with a wristband. They are valid where any other Disney Gift Card is valid.
