Hi!

We'll be going to WDW from 2/14-2/21/09. I'm looking for people who are going around the same time, and are interested in participating in sharing a Photo Pass. The photo pass will consist of Photopass CDs in jewel cases, and shipping.

I read other posts, and these directions looked good to me, so I "borrowed" them (as the PP had "borrowed" them from someone else, I figured it would be okay. :rotfl2: )

The Group Administrator will pre-order the CD so that it will cost $99.00. The Group Administrator will try to work with everyone as best as he/she can, but keep in mind they're only human. The Group Administrator will burn the CDs and ship them out as well.

Once the groups are finalized, The Group Administrator will ask that everyone in that group to pay via paypal (Price plus paypal fee) The price will include shipping as well (USPS Media Mail Estimate of $2.13). The Group Administrator will of course get your "confirmed" shipping address via paypal . The Group Administrator will let everyone know the price up front so that there are no "surprises" If the group is small enough and it won't take much time, The Group Administrator can try to separate the photos when they burn them to the CDs (No Promises).

Once The Group Administrator gets your information they will post your name on the board. After The Group Administrator figures out the price they will edit the post with the price and PM everyone. Once The Group Administrator has received the money they will post "Confirmed" by your name and PM you the Photopass account information.

We are looking to have at least 6 people join. In order to expedite the process, and to keep from having the share become unwieldy, there may be multiple share groups. Each group will have its own Administrator. Although I will oversee this Share, each Administrator will be responsible for his/her group.

Here is how a photopass share works: (Copied from multiple posts)

1) Get a photopass card from a photopass photographer when they take your pictures in the parks. Have fun and have lots of photopass photographers take your picture. Each photographer will scan your photopass card to add photos to your photopass card id number.

2) When you get home, DO NOT create your own Photopass Account on the Disney Photopass website, you will use a photopass account that has already been created. **Please do NOT create your own account! If you do, you will not be included in the group account that I set up.** You will receive an E-mail from me with the account information and the dates that will apply for our group.

3) All the people in your group will add their photopass card IDs to this same account (Username & Password provided upon receipt of funds) on the Disney Photopass website. You can edit your photos there (add borders, crop, etc) and then once everyone in the group has added their photos and edited their pictures, The Group Administrator will order the CD of pictures that cost $125 plus tax and shipping. ($99 on sale preorder right now) All the members split the cost evenly.

*Important*Again, make sure you add your photos to the GROUPíS account. If you create your own account, Disney will not allow you to add your pictures to the groupís account. You will be responsible for the total cost for "YOUR" new account. The cost of the CD - $125.00.

4) Everyone's pictures will be on this CD. The Group Administrator will order and will make copies for all other people in the group and mail them their copies. You can then take this CD to any photo place and get your photos developed as you wish because Disney sends a copyright release with the CD.

5) The cost will decrease with more members in the group.

6) There is NO LIMIT to how many pictures you can take. If a group has enough pictures to fill more than one CD, Disney will send as many additional CD's as it takes at no extra charge.

7) Sharing a CD means that strangers (the people within the group) will have a copy of your trip photos. Some people may not be comfortable with that.

IMPORTANT: Photopass is very strict about their time limits. We will have 30 days from the first entry of a photopass card to order the CD. PLEASE follow my dates as stated in any upcoming communications. You would not want to be the person who enters too early thus creating a problem for those traveling later in the month. We need to be considerate of each other for this to run smoothly. Thanks again for joining, and may your trip and pictures be magical.

HookdonWDW

jenny08 - you're in!

mcm_momma - yes, the share is definitely on. I didn't want to close it too soon, but we have a enough to do the share. I don't really want to go above 7-8 people in the share group... I think it gets to be too many pictures.

Any thoughts???

HookdonWDW-Thanks for your response...this will be my first share, so I'm new to how it all works.

I defer to your judgement about the number of players in the share. :) I just needed to know if we were a go, so that I could stop looking for a share to join.

If you decide you'd like to join, just let me know! It involves a little trust, and may not be for everyone, but it's a great way to get vacation photos, and not blow the budget!

Thanks! I went in to preterm labor with DS1 at 7.5 months so I'm sure my OB will not let me out of the county let alone 1200 miles away for WDW.

BTW DS1 was born H&H at 36 weeks and turned 1 today!:cake: :clown: party:

Sorry to be silent - I was out of town for the weekend. :thumbsup2

It looks like we have enough people to close out a group.

kwilliamsrn and dannyandkristi - I'm looking at your dates, and I'm not sure how well they would work with the current group of dates. Photo Pass only gives us a certain amount of time to get all of the pics in and edit them, and your dates might be pushing it...

If someone is interested in becoming the Administrator for a second Swap Group, we could work you into the dates...

Here is what we have right now:

GROUP 1
mcm_momma = February 1-7
borgthe = February 1 - 8
JDavis98 = February 1 - 15
jenny08 = February 3-12
mommyintn = February 6-13
wonderlandaddict = February 7-14
KoolCatShelby = February 11 - 19
HookdonWDW = February 14-21 - GROUP ADMINISTRATOR

Hi all! I live in Louisville, KY and we were affected by a windstorm as an after effect of Hurricane Ike. We were out of power for a week (and boy, do I feel for those who have to go through real hurricanes now), and I'm just now getting back to checking on this thread.

So if it's not too late, and more folks are interested in joining...I'd be willing to be an administrator for a second swap group. Plus, it would likely mean I wouldn't have to wait as long to see my pics. :goodvibes

Also, how far in advance of the first trip date is the photopass pre-purchased? You know, like, when can I expect to put up my share of the dough? ;)

Carrie,

I was going to start collecting so that I could purchase the photopass at the end of this month, but if you are interested in administering a second group, I'll hold off for a week or so, to see if we pick up more people (I don't want to collect from someone and end up having them move from one group to the other because of dates...)

mommyintn

I have a question about viewing the photos before eventually adding them to the group account. While I was reading about photopass it said you could view the pictures at certain camera centers in the parks or at guest relations at Downtown Disney etc. Doing this wouldn't require you to set up an account or anything would it? I would like to be able to see the pictures we've had taken but I don't want to do anything that will nullify my participation in the photopass share. Thanks!

I've never done it before as a group, but, personally, I'd wait until I got home just in case - I think some people carry two cards - one for the swap, and a personal card. Just ask the photographers to swipe BOTH cards when they take pics, and mark them so you know which is which... then you can view the pics on the 2nd card.:thumbsup2

8. Your Group Administrator will give you a time period to upload your photos to the group account. This should allow us to know where people's photos are on the disk(s), and keep the photos together by family. Therefore, it is very important that you upload your photos at that time. Photos can still be edited after your dates. Everyone's cooperation is needed in order for this to suceed. :goodvibes

Not a problem with either of you. I'll just note it so I remember when I assign dates. :thumbsup2

So, Group 1 has 8 participants, and Group 2 has 7 participants. More information will follow soon! ;)

Hi, I see that the list has been closed. But I also see someone has had to drop out. If you are looking for a replacement, I would love to join in. I was still trying to search through all the great things this site has to offer. This is AWESOME! Our trip is Feb 3 - 10th. If it doesn't work, no big deal. Thanks for reading!

HI ladies, just trying to check the status!
I had pm'ed about joining late and was told it would be possible but haven't heard any other details so I thought I would post here too.
We are going the 6-11th. If I am not down for a group and there is enough interest, maybe we should do another one. I see at least two more in our time frame interested!
thanks Katie

Hi all! It looks like we're all starting to feel some anticipation for our upcoming trips. :yay: I hope you all were able to save lots of money with the 4/3 deal!! I'm still on cloud 9 with what we were able to save. :cloud9:

Hopefully, HookedonWDW will check in soon. Personally, I'd like to get things under way with pre-purchasing the CD before the hectic-ness of the holidays kicks in.

Is there any chace of aditional folks being added to this OR is anyone here looking at possibly starting another swap? We will be at WDW 2/1-2/8. I'm pretty much a newb when it comes to all of these swap things though. I'm willing to do some of the footwork down the line if someone wants to do the initial setup.

Won't each group administrator handle the purchasing for their group? I'm pretty sure since she is the administrator of the 2nd group that she will collect from them and then purchase the CD for their group. So when your ready let us know! :)

Okay then. :) Group 1, get ready.

I see that we have 7 participants left in our group. I will calculate how much it will be to cover the photopass, cd's and mailing and post it and my paypal info to this thread by the end of the week.

As for the others asking about joining the share...if you're all still interested, there are 5 of you. Enough to start a new group I think, and Clorenzen has volunteered to lead a group if needed. I say go for it! :cheer2:

Hi everyone! I researched what supplies would cost and came up with the cost of the Photopass plus $5 per person. So that brings our cost per person to $19.28.

Mrs D = February 1 - 4
Ariel'07 = January 30 - February 6
mcm_momma = February 1-7 GROUP ADMINISTRATOR
borgthe = February 1 - 8
jenny08 = February 3-12

I'm going to PM everyone, please respond by sending me your email address so I can email you my paypal information.

Thanks!

I haven't heard from you regarding participating in Group 1 of this Photopass share. I'm afraid that my PM's aren't reaching you, so I thought I should post to the thread.

Please respond to the thread or by PM to me whether or not you are planning to participate in this share.

Hi there!!

I will also be travelling in February, the 5-12th, and would be interested in joining in a share if possible.

I did notice you marked the share closed, but maybe we can drum up enough support to start a 3rd group.

Here's to hoping. :D

Macntosh, the date of your trip makes me think that it wouldn't work so well with the other dates in group 1--we're all going in early Feb.

I'm not sure if Group 2 is still an active share or not...maybe someone in that group will post and let you know if they have a spot open.

:cool1: Wondering if Group 2 is still a go?

I have to admit that I've been wondering the same thing. I'm certainly not in any hurry, and there is plenty of time between now and our February trip. It's completely understandable if our group coordinator is busy with real life and holidary preparations, etc. But part of me has been wondering if the rest of the group had been communicating in some other format and I had missed the boat somehow. :confused3 I'll assume that everything's still working out ... but am not sure how long to wait? I'm definitely still interested in trying a photopass share... :thumbsup2

Hey Group 1 (we need a better name than this ;) )!

We're back to seven...thanks to Squidrific for joining our share. Everyone has paid, so I will be prepurchasing the CD over the weekend. I'll also come up with a tentative schedule for uploading that you guys can look over and let me know if you think it will work.


Ariel'07 = January 30 - February 6 PAID
mcm_momma = February 1-7 GROUP ADMINISTRATOR PAID
borgthe = February 1 - 8 PAID
Squidrific = February 4 - 10 PAID
tr-ray = February 5-12 PAID
mommyintn = February 6-13 PAID
wonderlandaddict = February 7-14 PAID

mcm_momma
12-07-2008, 07:56 PM
Group 1 Tentative Upload Dates

Ariel'07 = January 30 - February 6 = Upload Feb 9
mcm_momma = February 1-7 = Upload Feb 11
borgthe = February 1 - 8 = Upload Feb 13
Squidrific = February 4 - 10 = Upload Feb 15
tr-ray = February 5-12 = Upload Feb 17
mommyintn = February 6-13 = Upload Feb 19
wonderlandaddict = February 7-14 = Upload Feb 21

Look these dates over and let me know if they will work for you. I've read that the Photopass site can be slow, so I tried to have a balance between having time to upload and everyone having time to edit. I have the deadline for editing as March 7th...that gives me a couple of days cushion in which to order the CD in case the Photopass site is acting wonky. The very last day I can order the CD (based on the schedule above) is March 9th.

DH read the thread that you're talking about. He looked at me, cuz we are in group 1, and said something about not getting our CD...

I think in all of these situations, you go out on a limb to trust someone, and you just have to have faith in that person. Surely there are many more cases of people who have happily & successfully participated in a share. It is certainly unfortunate that it happened, but I think it is the exception and not the rule.

I hope that those of you in group 2 hear from your coordinator. Would any of you be willing to step in?

mcm_momma
12-22-2008, 11:33 AM
Hi all! I'm the leader for Group 1, and I just read the photopass share scam thread too. It was a scary read, and it made me glad I'm the leader of our share. ;) And I think tr-ray is absolutely right...it's one of those situations where you have to remind yourself that most shares go off without a hitch.

That being said, Group 1 members, let me know if there is anything I can do to set your minds at ease that our share is on the up and up. :)

Group 2, keeping my fingers crossed that it works out for you all. Again, I think tr-ray has a good suggestion--maybe one of you could lead the share if HookdonWDW doesn't respond soon.

Happy Holidays to all!

Group 1...

Mommyintn has had to reschedule her trip. :sad1: She has asked me to see if someone would like to step in and take her spot (but she also graciously agreed to still pay for her spot if no one does--but I'm going to try hard to make it so she doesn't have to).

So, we have a spot open in our share for anyone going to WDW in the first half of Feb. Since I can't edit the title of this thread and get the word out, I'm going to bump up the other thread I used to get us full before.

I will keep everyone up to date on the status of our share and how this may impact our upload dates.

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

M Roberts

I would offer to administer it, but our computer's CD burner has been malfunctioning and I don't have confidence that I could get it working in order to burn CDs for everyone. Sorry. As is probably the case for the rest of you, I don't know whether to just throw in the towel and forget about photopass for this trip, or to attempt looking for another share to join.... :rolleyes1

mcm_momma
12-29-2008, 09:23 PM
Hi all! koolcatshelby has joined our share, so we are once again full. :cool1:
So, here's what we look like now:

Ariel'07 = January 30 - February 6 = Upload Feb 9
mcm_momma = February 1-7 = Upload Feb 11
borgthe = February 1 - 8 = Upload Feb 13
Squidrific = February 4 - 10 = Upload Feb 15
tr-ray = February 5-12 = Upload Feb 17
wonderlandaddict = February 7-14 = Upload Feb 19
koolcatshelby = February 11-19 = Upload Feb 21


Wonderlandaddict...this means your update date has been bumped up by 2 days.

Koolcatshelby...this means you will will start uploading 2 days after then end of your trip.

Let me know if these dates won't work for you.

For those of you still wondering about Group 2, I suggest checking out this thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2031382. It's a mid-Feb share that's trying to get off the ground.

Just wondering if we're on schedule for uploads & reviewing.

If so, I was wondering if I could sneak in tomorrow and take care of my pix. I have class Tuesday and return to work, and I don't think I will have time to get to them then.

Let me know, and I hope everyone's had/having a great time in Disney!

As far as I can tell, we're on schedule. The photopass site is mixing all the pictures together which is making it a little hard for me to distinguish individual families.

As to your question, tr-ray, I think that it is up to Squidrific since you loading early would affect her time. (Sorry to put you on the spot Squidrific.) Hopefully, she'll respond and let you know if she's done.

Ahh, thanks Carrie! But, if we're doing 2 days each, I might be able to get it done in two days.

Of course, I have a class that meets Monday & Wednesday, and with the holiday this week, it meets Tuesday & Wednesday! Just what I need fresh back from vacation, lol.

You will still have time to edit your photos after your upload dates, so don't feel like you have to get it all done at once. The schedule for uploading is to make it easier for us to find our pictures on the site once we've entered our card numbers. If we were all entering at once I think it would be very confusing.

Just wanted to say I hope everyone had a great trip! I was supposed to be part of this share but we changed our dates and it's lucky we did because my 9 year old had appendicitis and had to have surgery. Everything works out for the best, I can't imagine being at Disney and him having to have surgery and then drive home!
