My Universal Photos - PinterestThere's nothing like making precious memories on vacation! However, we know the hassle all too well when it comes to capturing those memories — either someone in your party gets left out of a Kodak moment ... or you have to ask a stranger to get a shot with everyone in it. Luckily, Universal Orlando Resort has the perfect solution. My Universal Photos allows you to capture picture-perfect moments during your vacation, view them for months to come and share those epic experiences with your friends and family back home. Sound intriguing? Keep reading! Here's everything you need to know about My Universal Photos.

Our Ultimate Guide to My Universal Photos

Purchase Your Preferred Package

Whether you're screaming your face off on a rip-roaring, high-speed coaster or coming face-to-face with beloved cinematic icons, there are three different packages to choose from that help you bring the memories and magic of your vacation home with you:

  • 1-Day Photo Package: This package gives you one full day of photos at Universal Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida and Universal Volcano Bay with exclusive pricing on park photo prints and unlimited digital downloads. It also includes a My Universal Photos-themed lanyard and card and discounts on My Universal Photos photo products both in-park and online. You can save $20 off the in-park price when you purchase this package online and in advance.
  • 3-Day Photo Package: This option allows up to three consecutive days of photos in all three parks beginning on the day you pick up your My Universal Photos lanyard and card. With this package, you can purchase a $10 5x7 or 8x10 and $2 4x6 prints at participating My Universal Photos locations. This package also includes unlimited digital downloads of your photos, a My Universal Photos-themed lanyard and card and discounts on My Universal Photos photo products both in-park or online. When purchasing this package online and in advance, you save $20 versus purchasing it in-park.
  • 1-Day Photo Package at Volcano Bay: If you’re just looking for a slice of Waturi paradise, this package is for you. With your one day of photos at Universal Volcano Bay, you get unlimited digital downloads at participating locations. When purchasing this package online and in advance, you save $10 versus purchasing it in-park.

You can still purchase photos individually but that can quickly get expensive. The photo packages are absolutely worth it for the options and discounts they offer!

Have a Frogtastic Day

Once you've ordered your package, bring your confirmation email to either a will-call window at the front gate, On Location at Universal Studios in Production Central, DeFoto's Expedition Photography at Islands of Adventure in the Port of Entry or Waturi Marketplace or Krakatoa Katy's at Volcano Bay. A team member will distribute your lanyard and photo card and explain where all of the participating photo locations are in the respective park. For reference, the locations at Universal Studios are:

Photo locations at Islands of Adventure are:

My Universal Photos - Spider-Man

Photo locations at Volcano Bay are:

Whenever you see a professional photographer, just hand them your photo card and they'll scan it. If you want to keep a ride photo, after the team member pulls up your photo or when you locate it at a kiosk, scan your card to save it. If you're at a selfie station, scan your card, stand where directed and smile!

Does each family member have to purchase the $89 package? Parents and children?

Hi Mary!

No, each person in the group does not need to purchase the package.

Hoppy planning!

Sorry in the previous comment I meant $20 dollars off online advanced price.

How do you get the $20 online advanced price. I’m still seeing 1 day price as $89.99 when check out? Is there a code?

Hi Lynn!

The online price is $89.99 and the in-park price is $109.99, so you should see the $89.99 price at checkout online!

Hoppy planning!

We are traveling in a group of 9 family members. Can we have enough cards for our whole group?? We will be on the same hotel reservation. But, will be splitting up for rides and such at different points.

Hi Molly!

Typically, two cards are given per package, but you can try asking for additional photo cards.

Hi Jackie!

You can extend your photo package while you're at the park for a slightly reduced price.

How do we get our photo from Hagrid's using My Universal Photos card, is there a kiosk?

Reply

Hi Wendy!

As you exit from the ride, there will be a kiosk for ride photos on your right before you re-enter Hogsmeade, and a team member will scan your card.

Hoppy planning!

Is there anyway to purchase pictures days after?

Hi Linda!

You would need to purchase individual photos or a photo package while you're at the park. Photos are not kept unless they're tied to a My Universal Photos account.

Hoppy planning!

When looking to purchase the photo pass at universal, it says that the price is per card. Is there a way to get additional cards for the same account without purchasing additional packages? Is there a fee for additional cards on the same package?

Reply
Jan 24, 2023 at 8:31 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Michelle!

Yes, when you go to activate your account at the park, you can request additional cards at no extra cost for the same account. (If you're wanting photos on separate accounts, that's when you would need to purchase an additional package.)

Hoppy planning!

Hi there,

Planning a 5 day trip to Universal but only visiting parks for 3 days. Will the 3-day photo package be enough for the three days we're visiting parks (if we don't visit on consecutive days)?

Reply
Jan 3, 2023 at 2:11 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Valerie!

The 3-day photo package only covers up to three consecutive days, so if you aren't visiting on consecutive days, then it may not cover all three days of your visit.

Hoppy planning!

Question - if we buy a three day package and our family splits up in the park, can we collect temporary photo cards when we take pictures with the characters and then add those to our account later (enabling us to get ride photos from part of our group while the little kids go get character pics the way you would with a disney photopass)

Thanks

Hi Lauren!

There are no temporary cards at each photo location, but when you activate the photo package, you can request multiple cards to carry around if your group is planning to split up!

Hoppy planning!

Where do you activate the online photo passes and where do you ask for extra photo pass card for your group?

Hi Mo!

Once you've ordered your package, bring your confirmation email to either a will-call window at the front gate, On Location at Universal Studios Florida, DeFoto's Expedition Photography at Islands of Adventure, or Waturi Marketplace or Krakatoa Katy's at Volcano Bay. A team member will distribute your lanyard and photo card, and if you need additional cards, this is where you'd request them.

Hey! I'm going to Universal Orlando here in a few weeks, and I plan on proposing to my girlfriend. Will there be a photographer near the "The Adventure Begins..." sign at Islands of Adventure? Or maybe near the castle?

Hi Trae!

First of all, congratulations in advance! Generally, there is a photographer stationed right at the entrance near the "The Adventure Begins" archway. As for Hogwarts Castle, we occasionally see a photographer there, but it's not always guaranteed.

Hoppy planning!

Got a 14 day ticket. Is there a pass that might cover photos for this duration or even 7 days? We are planning to go at least 4 or 5 times (not doing Disney this time).

Reply

Hi Ian!

The longest option is the 3-Day package, so for covering your longer visit, we'd recommend a 3-Day + 1-Day package (if you only want it for four days) or two 3-Day packages (to cover six days).

Hoppy planning!
