Disney PhotoPass Service Joins Forces with runDisney

Runners from galaxies near and far, far away have been preparing to run on Darth Vader's turf during the inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side at Walt Disney World® Resort April 14-17. Meanwhile, an elite team of Disney PhotoPass Photographers has been training to capture every moment of the race!

We are excited to announce that Disney PhotoPass Photographers will now be capturing your runDisney memories – from the spectacular races to the character experiences along the course.

Here are some details:

  • Disney PhotoPass Photographers will be on the course, at character and backdrop locations, and at the finish line taking your photos during your race.
  • To keep things running, all photos taken by photographers during runDisney events will be linked to your bib number—no need to stop to collect PhotoPass Cards or associate to MagicBands! Photo linking instructions will be included in race event guides and on the runDisney Results page.
  • You'll be able to view and purchase your photos at or on the My Disney Experience app within 24 hours of the event.
  • Want all your race photos and your Walt Disney World vacation memories for one price? Purchase Memory Maker and you'll receive unlimited digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass memories from your visit to Walt Disney World Resort—including all your runDisney photos and your Park memories*. Buy Memory Maker three days or more before your visit and save $20 off of the regular price of $169.
  • Have a Walt Disney World Disney Premier Passport or Disney Platinum Plus, Disney Platinum or Disney Gold Annual Pass? Your runDisney photos are included as part of your Annual Pass benefit*!
  • During the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side event, Disney PhotoPass Photographers will be at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo to answer your questions. If you follow runDisney on Instagram, stop by the Disney PhotoPass booth to receive a complimentary download of your photo with an exclusive Star Wars backdrop available at the Expo.

May the Force be with you!
