PHOTOS: On-Ride Photos Now Watermarked at Attraction Exits in the Magic Kingdom to Stop “Photo Theft” by Guests
While visiting Magic Kingdom today, we noticed that Disney PhotoPass watermarks have been added to the on-ride photos that can be seen along the walls at attraction exits to stop “photo theft” by guests.
The watermarks can be seen at the on-ride photo walls lining select attraction exits, such as seen above at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. These watermarks would show on guests photos when viewed in the app or online, so it may look familiar.
In the above photo of the same wall from last summer, the on-ride Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin photos do not contain any watermarks.

Splash Mountain also has new watermarks at its on-ride photos station at the attraction’s exit.
This action has been taken to stop guests from “stealing” on-ride photos as it was a common practice for guests to take pictures via cellphone of the previously unwatermarked photographs. Combined with PhotoPass photographers now allowing mask-less outdoor photos, this seems to be a big push for guests visiting Walt Disney World to purchase Memory Maker.
