Want to relive the time you rode the Hulk? Do you want to forever keep the moment you posed with a dinosaur? My family and I still love looking at our photos from Universal and reliving our fabulous memories there.  I am so glad I purchased the My Universal Photos photo package and you will be too! Here’s what you need to know:

What is My Universal Photos?  My Universal Photos is a package you can purchase ahead of time or in the parks.  It gives guests the advantage of unlimited downloads for a specified time of the photos taken in the park with characters, on rides, or fun family photos with the big park icons.  Not only are the photos better quality, but having these photos gets the whole family in the photo without the hassle of carrying around a camera all day.

Where do we purchase My Universal Photos? There are a few different ways to purchase My Universal Photos. The best way to do this is to add it with your purchase of a resort or ticket package.  You will save some money and a lot of hassle so be sure to tell your Me and the Mouse Specialist.   If you forget to add it early, there are several kiosks located throughout Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure that will add the photo package. Once purchased, you will receive a lanyard and a card that will be scanned at all photo locations to save your images

Where can we have our photos taken? Universal photographers and photo stations are located through Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay. Character Meet and Greets like Transformers, Spider Man, the Simpsons, and Shrek are all photo locations, as well as the Raptor meet and greet in Islands of Adventure. There are also several areas within the parks with a timed, automated camera. I loved the ones at Volcano Bay! However, my absolute favorite moments are the ones you can’t capture yourself. The on-ride photos at Rip Ride Rockit, Hulk and Harry Potter, and the Forbidden Journey were a family favorite for us.

How much is it to add the photo package? There are a few different options: a one-day pass is priced at $69.99 plus tax and the three-day pass is priced at $89.99 plus tax if purchased ahead of time. You can also purchase a 1-day package at Volcano Bay for $39.99 plus tax.   With the package, you get unlimited downloads of all of your photos, view and share through the Amazing Photos app, 1 free 4×6 and 5×7 printed photos, as well as discounts on any other prints or photo products.  If you are traveling in a large party, keep in mind that you can share this package.

As someone who loves my photos for years, the My Universal Photos package is a great value and wonderful add-on for your Universal vacation.  Contact your Me and the Mouse Specialist for more information or to add this option to your Universal vacation.
