Universal Photo ConnectUniversal Orlando: I'm looking for information, good or bad, about Universal's Photo Connect
From James KoehlI see that Universal Orlando has a photo service called Photo Connect, but I can't seem to find out anything about it. Is it like Disney's Photo Pass? Do they have photographers throughout the parks? Quality? Any information would be appreciated.

From Ashleigh NoadUnless it has changed recently, (haven't been in just over a year) I think its just when a photographer takes your picture, and gives you a small slip of paper, then you go and take a look at the end of your day in one or a few of the shops. Sorry that wasn't too helpful, but as far as I'm aware, it is just that..

Might have changed though!
From James KoehlThanks, Ashleigh. Something told me it wasn't too big of a thing, nothing like Disney's PhotoPass, but I thought it might be something to check out. We'll be there in June and might try to get more info.

From Terri PierceI always see photographers at point of entry but hardly ever see them later on the the park. They are usually there early in the mornings more so than afternoons.

From Andy StevensThe company behind Photo Connect, Amazing Photo show ride photos (Men in Black & Harry Potter). If your ride photos are automatically uploaded to Photo Connect that'll be great.

From James KoehlThanks for the info! I think we'll wait until we get there to sign up for anything. Hopefully customer relations can give us more information.

1. Buy a regular ride photo so that you're allowed to get the Photo Connect Card
From James KoehlThanks, Erin! Do you know what attractions have the photos available? Doesn't have to be a complete list, but I can't seem to find much about this anywhere. When we buy a picture, do we just ask for a card instead of the picture and carry the card around with us, and have them put any pics we want on the card for later retrieval?
