My Thoughts on Disney’s Use of Automated PhotoPass Cameras

So I have noticed at least at Walt Disney World (WDW) that in a cost cutting measure Disney has decided to replace PhotoPass cast members with automated machines. In my opinion I think this is a horrible idea and I am one for usually supporting technology replacing people in certain jobs.

In this case, a machine does not capture the same Disney Magic as a castmember would. A castmember would give people the options to do different angles and poses and have fun interactions. A machine just makes the whole experience feel so sterile and boring in my opinion.

How do you guys feel about the inclusion of automated PhotoPass technology? I think they should remove them ASAP, but comment your thoughts and feelings below on this cost cutting measure!
