It's in innovations west. Near the Segway area...you'll see people standing against the wall waiting in line. They will give you a voucher doe a free photo. You go to the photo shop and they'll print it for you.

In Innoventions West, right near the "where's the fire" exhibit. Any CM in Innoventions could direct you. You get your pictures taken there then go to the camera center later to pick up the print. If you are exiting the park, the camera center is in the front of the park, on the left side of Spaceship Earth.

Okay, out of the loop here. Could someone explain this to me? Do you need a VISA? What is the picture, or who with?
THanks

You need not just any Visa, but the Disney Visa. If you are a cardholder, you get access to a special M&G area that no one else has access to. Not sure about the details beyond that (since I'm not a cardholder).

Disney Visa

Yes, you will need the Disney Visa card, it's a perk of the card. You never know who will show up but we have gone several times and it has always been Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy.

You can get one free picture a day per card number. Great perk!

We do this every trip.....and mostly get photos with Mickey, Minnie and Pluto. Sometimes we see Goofy, Donald and Daisy. Once years ago we had Goofy and Max.

One year the attendant asked if we had a Rewards card with us. She gave us 2 free photo vouchers! One for the Visa card and one for the Rewards card!

Be sure to pick up your free photo at Epcot that day, because the photo pass locations in other parks WILL NOT print out the free photo for you. Also, the only free photo you can get is from the M&G. Other photos taken during the day do not qualify for the free picture.

Sometimes the line looks long, but remember the whole family group goes in at once, and spend maybe 1-2 minutes on average. They are only open for this a short time in the afternoon.

I don't remember exactly but believe it is something like 1pm-4pm. We usually head over right after lunch...

We have had the entire fab 4, and we have had just a single character. Just don't go with any expectations.

I also find that the lighting in there is awful and the pictures don't come out great, however it's a free perk, so we still do it.
