Disney PhotoPass has unveiled two new updates to its offerings today at Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

At the Haunted Mansion, the onboard photo now has a new look with a ghost to follow you home.

There are multiple versions of the image, so each time you ride you may get a different picture of your experience.

Images are automatically linked to your My Disney Experience account via a registered MagicBand, or via Bluetooth from your own device.

At Tower of Terror, a new PhotoPass lens is available with the purchase of Disney Genie+. To access the lens, head to Sunset Blvd and open up My Disney Experience to get started.

Along with these new offerings beginning today, Disney says more updates will be coming to other attraction's onboard photos soon.

This looks very cool.

There’s one guy in the photo who has no expression, doesn’t want to be there or perhaps….there’s room for one more…

Portrait Hall in beginning of ride…at the last portrait the buggy turns slightly and there is a crack of lightning…..the lightning is enough of a “flash” …. At least the assumption is there is only one photo….haven’t been for the newer version, but can tell you the old version didn’t always shop in MDE, especially if you Magic Band was older and in need of replacement

The photo in the examples are confusing because they are pretending the the picture they take in the portrait hall is actually at the end with the CGI hitchhikers. And to add even more confusion the hitchhikers they use are from just before the CGI segment and doesn't belong here either. Basically they are a mishmash of 3 separate scenes.

It should still be taken in the portrait hall before the library.

So is the HM photo taken at the end with the hitchhiking ghosts? What about the photo by the portraits at the front of the ride? Or maybe the photo is still taken by the portraits (while warning us not to use flashes because the ghosts are sensitive to bright lights. :rolleyes:) but the result is us in the buggy visited by a hitchhiking ghost.

Well, Genie+ might not get you on the ride, but, pay for it to get a nifty new 'Photo Pass Lens' !! :confused:
