    Exclamation Space Mountain Adds New On-Ride Photo Options: PhotoPass Download & USB Drive

    The Walt Disney World Resort has announced the following:

    Beginning on June 28, 2010, Guests will have new options for their photos from the Space Mountain® Attraction. The three product options available to the Guests are:
    • Purchase their photo as a print. A variety of print sizes and packages are available. These prints will be made directly by the systems inside the Space Mountain Merchandise Shop.
    • Purchase their photo as a digital download from the DisneyPhotoPass.com website
    • Purchase their photo as a digital file and combined with other bonus digital content on a Disney-themed USB drive.


    Guests will also get a Space Mountain themed PhotoPass card which can later be used at any other PhotoPass location.

    The USB Drive will include the Guest's ride photo plus 7 extra professional stock photos of the Space Mountain attraction.

    The original charge for the USB Drive and the first ride photo is $24.95. Additional photos can be added to the same USB drive as part of the same transaction for $9.95 per photo. All regular Merchandise discounts apply.

    As interesting as this sounds, having the USB option PLUS PhotoPass card(s) sounds really expensive.

    Until they equip ALL rides/attractions that have associated photos with the USB option - and allow photos to be added to your thumbnail drive at a reasonable price ($9.95 per photo is NOT a reasonable price for a digital transfer to a USB drive - Maybe $9.95 for a package of your ride photo PLUS 7 stock photos??) I will reserve judgment and save my money.

    Just allow photos from all rides/attractions to be added to a new, or existing, PhotoPass - like Test Track currently does. Paying for the PhotoPass CD should be enough $$$ for the pics they take!!!!

    Seems pretty pricey to me for A file. It costs them next to nothing to transfer a file to a thumb drive. I certainly wouldn't pay $10 for it!

    I wouldn't purchase the USB drive (at least until its a better value) but I am excited that it looks like they are moving more toward adding the pics to photopass cards like on Test Track.

    I agree. It would be great to be able to have all the ride pics on the photopass card!
