How fun! We didn't use photopass last trip. We were so busy running around from ride to ride. I also know our teen boys would never have posed for it. I love the little characters they add. Do you ask them for that? How does that work?

I have yet to try Photopass - but that will happen in just over two weeks! I must say to Judy, and the others who have posted your pictures on this thread so far, that everybody looks GREAT in them! It seems to me that I have seen some other Photopass pictures in different places, and, while the background setting or theme is nice, the people don't always look as happy or as photogenic. But all of the photos posted on this thread that I have seen so far are GREAT! You can tell that all of you are having a really great time - the families look happy too! Now I will be paranoid that my inaugural Photopass sessions will not come out as nicely! I know the photographers will do a nice job, but I don't know how my friends and I will look in them!

Sherry E, don't worry! You will get some great photos! Just take advantage of the Photopass photographers every chance you get. We did have some photos that were not as good as others but they have always looked at them to make sure everyone's eyes are open, etc and will take more photos if the first one is not good.

Sad to say, but our Disneyland photos are the only "family portraits" we have taken over the last several years. (We just never get around to going to the photographers.) BUT, you are right, everyone looks happy so I guess they make a pretty good family photo after all!

This year I have got to look for some of the photo spots where they add the characters! They are soooo cute!

Yes, your family looks like they are having a lot of fun! Sometimes in pictures - of families or friends - you can see that most folks are having fun, but there is always that one who is forcing a smile, or not even trying to smile! Not so in these Photopass pictures! Everyody looks happy to be there! I am a big goofball with pictures from way back. I was always the one with the camera as a teenager, snapping all kinds of silly, candid pictures or making people pose and my friends would want to throttle me. Now, of course, they all want copies! I will get in any silly pose, I will get in a picture with any character - even if I don't recognize the character - and I will ham it up, even if I loook terrible doing it! I am kicking myself that I didn't pursue the Photopass option last year. I had two opportunities in two separate trips last year, and December would have been the best, because I had the right group of friends together at one time - and it is not easy to get that specific group together in one place - and I would have loved to get some really nice pictures of all of us. We had a waitress at RFC take a picture, and not only was it too dark, but she didn't center it, so we are all off to one side. That was the only group photo taken. I think I was just uneducated about the whole Photopass system. I probbaly assumed there were fees required for each picture, or I assumed it wasn't necessary because we all had our own cameras. Now, I know better, and I am educated, but I will not have the right people together again! Oh well. I will take advantage of every Photopass photographer I see because it really seems like they do a great job with the pictures. I like the idea of the one in Pirate's Lair, where it loks like you are battling Captain Hook or somebody. Or maybe you are battling Jack Sparrow? Hmm...Oh well, it's a cute idea. And I love the idea of the Haunted Mansion entrance, with the hitchhiking ghosts and all that.

Kelmac, love, Love LOVE your photos! First of all, it makes me so excited to get to DLR in two weeks and stand in front of that big pumpkin. Last year, when we wanted lots of pumpkin pics, it was pouring rain! I love the two little girls hugging - that is adorable! And I LOVE the picture by the Grand Californian tree - oh, yes, I recognize it because my friend and I staked out a seat right next to that tree for a couple of hours and listened to carolers and watched people sit in that exact same chair to pose where you are posing! We even took some pictures of people in the chairs. I love that hotel and that tree! Anyway, your picture is so wonderful because it truly SAYS 'Christmas.' It epitomizes the season in color and wardrobe and location and mood of the picture and everything. Just wanted to tell you that! I can't wait to get back to DLR for Halloween stuff and for Christmas!

I love everyone's photos! Thanks for sharing. This is one of my favorite Photopass pics. We had no idea the photographer was framing DH's head in the Mickey head on the coaster until we got home and looked at the pics on our card. DH is a real character, so the photographer really nailed him on this shot.

Your husband looks too funny and hip, with the very different images of the Beatles shirt and the Mickey ears happening. I want to get a photo taken in that exact spot, and I am slightly taller than my friends so I had better be the one with the ears!

Thanks Sherry. We had a LOT of fun on those two trips last year. The halloween trip we went to Mickey's Halloween Treat and had a blast! We had done the DW version and had a GREAT time. In fact the shirts dh and I are wearing in our pic are from the DW version. It rained the night we went but we still had a good time and it was SO much fun. The girls spent HOURS back in Woody's roundup with all the pumpkins and decorating cookies etc. It was just a blast!

And then we went back that first week of December for Candelight Procession and it was just incredible. Can you tell that the Disney Store is my fav? LOL. We own a LOT of Disney attire! ;) Some people think we are geeks I am sure for wearing the matching clothes but I especially wanted to do it that night to get some neat Christmas photos and we took a LOT that trip. We got some great shots with the castle during the day AND night with all the decorations. It was truly a magical trip.

We got some great shots with the castle during the day AND night with all the decorations. It was truly a magical trip.

I have truly loved everyone's photos on this thread so far (and believe me, I wouldn't say it if I didn't!), but I really think yours seem to convey the magic in a special way. Many people have magical trips to DLR but it doesn't always translate well in photos, and so people looking at the photos might not get an accurate sense of how magical the experience was. In the pumpkin picture (and those shirts are tie-dyed, right? Very cool!), the colors are so crisp and clear, and, as I said before, the girls hugging is precious, and it is so sunny and bright. And, again, that picture by the GCH tree in the lobby just really stirs my own memories of being there, two feet from where you are posing in it, listening to the carolers and people-watching. It looks like you could have easily taken that photo in a cozy cabin somewhere, or someone's home. It just looks really warm and Christmasy. And I do love the picture with the Castle backdrop at night. We didn't get a good one of the Castle but it was stunning to look at!

I know what you mean about people thinking you are a geek because of all the Disney clothes and what not. For many years, I was on a tear, buying all kinds of shirts and nightshirts and pants and socks and everything Disney at the stores and at the DLR stores. When I went to Disneyland in the old days, I wore my Mickey earrings, had my Mickey purse, wore a Mickey shirt - everything was Disney. And I know my friends thought I was ridiculous. Over time, I ran out of money but also, the styles seemed to change and I didn't like the stuff that I saw - like even now, at DLR, I couldn't find one single black t-shirt that I could agree with - and I just lost the urge to buy the clothes. But I am loving the whole tie-dyed renaissance that is happening, and I love the festive holiday sweaters!

Anyway, I will be back in DLR and I intend to hunt down the Photopass photographers by the pumpkin and everywhere else, but I really HOPE I can get back there to the GCH for Christmas! Your picture makes me want to get back there to stake out a place by the tree again! Keep posting more photos!

This isn't photopass but I had to post this one. You talk about magic and I thought this was so awesome. We were just walking out getting ready to leave to go home and Mickey just walked up behind my dh and grabbed his hand. I am sure he thought it was me but he just went with it and they started walking hand in had for a bit. It was the cutest thing ever. And then Mickey led him over to a spot and then we took a group family photo.

But I just HAD to take a picture.

Anyway just thought I would share cuz it was too cute not too.

It is adorable, and I especially like the vantage point you have, taking the picture of their backsides! - it adds a different kind of whimsical feel to it, I think! It seems much more childlike and innocent shot from behind than if you had snapped it from the front. It reminds me of something you would see in a DLR brochure advertising Halloweentime at the two parks!

I am glad you resurrected this thread, Kaler - I realized, when looking at the pictures again today, what a happy thread it is! All the pictures came out so clearly and so great of everyone and they are very festive! Hopefully, if we just keep this thread active (or maybe it can be made into a sticky?), people will start posting a lot through the holiday season.:) :goodvibes

I see that quite a few of us are using PhotoPass these days, so just wondering if anyone has anything new to share. I may post a couple from the October trip, but the colors are kind of drab and dreary in a lot of them, so I have to try to pick the best or the cheesiest of the bunch!

I was hoping you would catch this thread, Disneydaz - I partially resurrected it so you and a few of the other recent PP users would post some things! And you have TONS to choose from, with different holiday effects and all! Can't wait to see them. I don't know why mine seem so drab and colorless and lifeless! They don't look as fun and peppy as the other ones on here do! Maybe during the holidays, they will look better!

DLR in March '09

When you go to DLR look for the Disney PP Photographers. They are located in different areas of the park. They will take pictures of you and some of them can add "magic" to the shots. Tink, Hook, Stitch, Mickey, Minnie, Soarin', etc. You'll get a card from the first PP photog and then everytime you get more just have them scan your card. ( you can have more than one card, and more than one family) Then you can buy/view them in the parks. But the best deal is to do the pictures online and buy the CD, with enhancements, for $59.95 plus $7 shipping. There are several threads one the boards showing shots you can get.

You have 30 days from the date the first pix is taken to upload them and then you have another 30 days to add your enhancements.

Make sure to take a picture of the numbers on your card(s) in case you lose it. Also, write your phone number on it with a black sharpie. Just in case.

There is no cost to have PP take your picture, but they do charge if you want prints, or the CD, (or many other options) Also, PP photogs will gladly take pix of you with your own camera. Just ask. Of course, no magical enhancements. :rotfl2:

Thanks Sherry! This year I decided to smile more in our pix and have fun with our pictures. I'm so much happier with our pix this year. Now all I have to do is wait for all those CDs to come. I wonder how many I'll end up with? :confused3

These new photos from everyone are great! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Lady and the Tramp topiary bushes in one of Judy's pictures! You don't see too much Lady and the Tramp stuff and those bushes are too cute! The people who create them - landscape artists, I guess they would be? - are so talented!

Courtney, you and your boyfriend (Jesus, right?) seem like you are having so much fun! I love the men who can go with the flow and have fun at DLR like that - just let loose and 'play.' Some of them are too worried about being macho and not wanting to come off as acting like a kid, and they won't be silly! By the way, you are so pretty - you like you could be a model!!

So if I buy the CD, can I print my own pictures for the people that travelled with me? We will be a group of 5 people from 4 different families. Also, is the photo pass good for multiple days? If that's how it works, this might be a fantastic plan!

Thanks.

I have no clue how large these pictures are going to show up here. It seems whenever I think a photo is going to be large, it ends up being small, and vice versa! In any case, here is one:

The Queen of Hearts grabbed my hair with her (his) left hand and was stroking it diabolically with the right, which startled me, in an 'Off with her head!' kind of way! I am in the Mickey t-shirt and that is my friend Shawn in the peachy-orange shirt:

Sherry, those are cute pics of you and your friends! I want to try photopass sometime but DH thinks it's too expensive and I'm not sure i want to do a photopass share so I'm dodging that snowball, at least for the moment. :laughing:

Thank you!:goodvibes

Avoid the Snowball at all costs! As you said in the other thread ABOUT the Snowball, right now, a lot of your ideas are just in your brain and not being acted upon. Keep it that way! Resist the force, LavenderPeach! Be strong for all of us!

Strangely, of all the outrageously expensive DLR items/hotels/meals, etc., it seems the PhotoPass CD is a great deal for the money ($66.95 total, including shipping). I had 58 photos to start with (I was lucky in that I wasn't missing any pictures, as seems to be the case with other people recently) and I turned them into 112 or something like that, by editing and adding frames and effects and things. Of course, I could have done more and made it 500 instead of 112, but I got bored! The individual photo prices are crazy, but the CD is a bargain. Actually, after Bumbershoot explained to me all the logistics of it, I was sold and knew I wanted to try it! Plus, it worked out well because my friend Shawn didn't have her real camera with her and had to use disposable, and the 35 mm camera I had with me was probably 200 years old and dying rapidly. It was good to have the PhotoPass back-up pictures!

Not that I am trying to encourage/enable you or anything....:laughing:

So if I buy the CD, can I print my own pictures for the people that travelled with me? We will be a group of 5 people from 4 different families. Also, is the photo pass good for multiple days? If that's how it works, this might be a fantastic plan!

Thanks.

Yes, once you buy the CD you can get as many prints as you want. :goodvibes Along with your pictures on the CD(s) you will also receive a copyright agreement from Disney giving you the right to make copies of the photos for your personal use. You should print this out to show wherever you have your pictures printed, or you'll need to send it to a site if you do your processing online (Shutterfly, WM, etc.) What you can also do is, once you receive your CD(s) is burn copies for your family/friends. That's what I'm going to do with 2 families that went to WDW at the same time we did as well as our famliy/friends that we got pictures with at DLR. That way they can print their own pictures.

And yes, it is a great deal-especially if you are going to DLR. DLR cd is only $59.95 which is a great deal when you consider 1 5x7 is $12.95. You'll want to buy your CD online, not in the parks. The CD you purchase in the park will not include any added enhancements (except the "magical" ones added by the photographer direct).

So once you go to DLR, go the PP website (disneyphotopass.com) and upload your card(s) You can upload as many cards as you want. You can continue to add cards to your account as well. When you upload your pictures, it will show an expiration date 30 days from your upload date. That is the date your pictures expire. You'll have to order your CD (or anything else) by that date or those pictures will disappear. You'll want to make sure that you get all the cards from your group and enter them on only one account. That way you'll only need to order one CD. (Depending on how many picutres you end up with, you'll actually receive multiple CDs-the is no limit on how many pictures you have on one (or more) CDs. I expect that I'll get 10-20 CDs with my recent order.

Luckily for me, Disney offered a deal to give you 30 extra days to do your pictures. I was able to take advantage of that and got 2 months worth of pix on my CD.

The PP cards, themselves, don't expire. You can continue to use them until they (Disney) comes out with a new system, if they do. I used my PP card from last year, this year at WDW and it caused a small problem. I wasn't able to upload those picture since they belonged to another PP account, already set up (A CD share group I was in last year). Luckily, I contacted Guest Services and they were able to transfer my photos to my new account. :goodvibes

Hope this helps, if you have any more questions, either post here or send me a PM. I'll do my best to answer you.

I also have hints, experiences, etc. that I plan on posting once I get my CDs so I can post pictures with it. I'll put a link in my siggy once I do.

Here's one quick tip-upload your pix as soon as you can. During certain times of the year, Disney adds more enhancements to the site. When they add some, they take some away. When we first returned from WDW in Sept (9-12) there were a lot of Halloween frames. Then as they added more enhancements (Pixie Hollow, WDW F&W, etc.) they started taking off the Halloween ones. Now that they have 12 Christmas season frames there are only 2 Halloween frames, 1 Fall frame, and 1 Thanksgiving frame left. So if you just got back from a recent Halloween trip to WDW or DLR you'll now have less frames to choose from. I'm surprised they took the HW frames off so soon, it was less than 2 weeks ago. I would be nice if special event frames would stay on the site at least 30 days from it happening. Are you listening Disney? I've got other suggests too! :rotfl2:

Sherry I see you resurrected this thread! Love your pics!! Too cute!

And thanks Jacksparrow for the compliement! I loved that pic too.

I am off to DW in just a few days and I know I will probably have a TON of new pics then so I will have to post some then! I will probably buy the CD. Plus I am going on the girls trip in March and am doing the CD share then too so I will have some from then as well!

LOVE all the pics!! :)

Yep, it was not my thread to begin with, but I saw that quite a few others of us on DISboards have been using PP lately, so I dug the thread out of the murky depths, and I hope people keep posting! I still really enjoy your photos from Christmas season, because they just really conjure up that holiday feeling for me! The colors in yours seem to be better. I guess I could play with the colors in mine, but I didn't bother yet. (It was kind of odd weather when we went anyway, so overcast and gray for part of the time.) I am dying to get back to DLR in December and take some pictures in front of the blue-purple, glowy, icicle-dripping Castle (like you have in your signature) at night!!!

Yes, by all means, post lots of WDW pictures when you return. I love what they do for the holidays at WDW in the four different parks and in all the hotels in terms of decorations - and I have only seen it on TV and in photos! Can't imagine what it would be like to see it in person! Have a great time!!!:goodvibes

Thanks! I so loved seeing the SB castle with the icicle lights last Christmas and we are SO excited to see DW's version!! We only get to go once every 3 years and we are so happy that it conincides with when they are doing this. Last year we got to see our first Candlelight Procession and it was amazing!! We didn't do the dinning package but we got dreamed in a sense because we walked up and were standing back by the ropes and then at the last minute a CM motioned for the kids to come sit in the empty chairs at the back and of course we were able to join in as well! It was incredible!!

So now we are going next Thursday and have plans to see CP and Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party and luckily will get to see the Osborne Lights as well. So LOTS of good photo op possibilities. I plan to have a VERY full photo pass card indeed! :)

I splurged and bought the CD last time we went to DL and I KNOW I will probably buy it at DW because after being there close to two weeks I am sure it will be the better deal!

I will DEF share all our pics! :)

You can get one from any PP photog. After you get your first pictures taken tell the photog that you need a card. That's all it takes.

So, say you're going to DL first. As soon as you enter the turnstiles you'll see at least one PP photographer in front of the Mickey landscaping (with Tink) with the train station behind. That's a great place to get your first pix taken. After he/she is done, just get your PP card from him/her. Then you're all set! Just hand the card to each PP photog you see, and they'll scan the card once they take your pictures. If you tell them you are buying the CD and they can take as many pix as they want, most of them will comply.

We had one photog who I recognized from Triton's Carousel at DCA last year who was at the hub this year. I asked her if she used to take PP there (carousel) and she said she did. I told her that she got a few great shots of DD on the ride. I told her we were buying the CD again, and take all the pix she wanted. After she took ones of us in front of the Walt/Mickey staute, she took us around the hub and took more pictures of us with some of the character pumpkins. She was great! Sadly, we did not see any PP photogs this year at the carousel. I looked every time.

Just out of curiosity, was PP an option back in 2006? I did buy 4 5X7s of us holding tinkerbell. That alone makes me want to do the whole PP thing! Do the photographers mention it if we don't?

Thank you, Judy! :thumbsup2 :goodvibes I love my Crocs! I have them in gray too!!


Courtney, you and your boyfriend (Jesus, right?) seem like you are having so much fun! I love the men who can go with the flow and have fun at DLR like that - just let loose and 'play.' Some of them are too worried about being macho and not wanting to come off as acting like a kid, and they won't be silly! By the way, you are so pretty - you like you could be a model!!

Thank you soo much, Sherry! Your compliments are too sweet! :hug:

I love your pictures!!! I like how he's playing with your hair!! Tooo too funny!!!!

Jesus looks like he is a good blend of macho and silly-playful, which is important! It is not good to have them be all one way or all the other!!

I look at the Queen of Hearts in a whole new way now that I know she is a HE!:rotfl: At first I was annoyed that the PhotoPass photgrapher didn't get at least one picture with the Queen, etc. where I was looking at the camera (she was rushing because there was a long line for those characters), but the more I look at that picture, it grows on me because it is funny! It is something a little wacky beyond just the standard PhotoPass poses! Kind of like a candid PhotoPass shot, but accidental!

And you notice I had to get a picture with Woody and his enormous head!!!:rotfl: His head is just so disproportionately large...the poor guy!

We got a deal on our CD but we bought it in the park and it seems to me to get the deal we weren't able to get all the cool backgrounds and such. If we wanted that we would have had to pay more. If we bought the CD there in the park we had to take it as is with no extras but it was cheaper.

My question is I was thinking about making christmas cards out of my pics from DW but if I end up doing another deal like I did before and getting the CD WHILE I am at DW I supposed getting Christmas cards would be out of the question. But I guess I could just take one of the pics and use it to make some from Longs or something at home but I was really wanting to have some made from photopass. Anyone know the answer?

I'm a little confused-yes you can have Christmas cards made from any pix on your CD. And as you discovered, the CD you buy in the parks doesn't inc. enhancements-except for the ones the PP photogs add on for you (Tink, Hook, Soarin', Stitch, Ghosts, Mickey, Minnie, Darth, etc.) ( I guess they don't want you standing there forever doing edits-I totally understand that!:rotfl2: ) Or you can order Christmas Cards from your PP taken on the PP website, with or without addded enhancements.

Does that answer your question? Hope so.:goodvibes

See they told us if we bought the CD in the park it would be 50 but if we waited till we got home it would cost more off the site like 99 or something. That was the difference. They told us if we bought it IN the park it would be a lot cheaper then if we waited till we got home. That was the only reason we bought it there. Obviously if it was the same price I would have waited till I got home. :)

I was just afraid if I did the same thing in Florida that once I purchased it I would no longer be able to purchase the christmas cards. I wonder though if I could possibly order Christmas cards of a particular photo AT the park and then just get the rest on a CD IF they even HAVE that special offer there like they do at DL.

Kelly, it just occurred to me to put in a request - if you can, try to get some photos of the different elaborate edible holiday displays in the hotels when you go to WDW. I don't know how many of the hotels down there you will actually stroll through, but on one of the Travel Channel specials I watched, it said that every WDW hotel has its own edible display. That is something that is sorely lacking over here in DLR. Not only do we not have all those hotels, but they don't put edible displays in the ones we do have! I have seen what some of them look like, but they may change every year in each hotel. Anyway, I have a feeling it is something we would all like to see pictures of! I think all those hotels and Epcot would be worth going to WDW around the holidays alone, not to mention the Osborne Family's lights and all that (which also looks amazing!). Plus, the picture that I saw of the AK Christmas tree looked really cool.

The gingerbread shop in the GF looked amazing from what I could tell. And they sell mini versions of it there, which is awesome! One of the hotels had an edible amusement park edible display, with mini rides and mini Santas, and mini characters on the rides, but I cannot recall which hotel it was. The Animal Kingdom Lodge had a magnificent display! I don't know why they won't do anything like that down here in any of the three hotels! They could find room to do that somewhere!:mad:

Hee hee. It is all part of my evil plan!:rotfl: Well having the pictures taken and getting the PP card won't hurt or cost anything. It is only after the trip that you can choose to pay or not. But PP even lets you share the photos with other people before you have bought the CD, so everyone can get a good look at them when you send the e-mail share invitation. Then, if you don't want to buy the CD, PinkBudgie or MIL can buy it. Or you all can get a good look at the photos and then let them expire, no expense paid. I think it is a good option to have as a back-up! And 85% of the photos come out really good.

He is macho AND silly! Which is a good mix! Heís a keeper!! :)

I know! That is SO funny! Itís a guy!! Haha! No wonder why she (he!) doesnít walk very feminine, you know what I mean? :rotfl:

Yes, the Queen of Hearts kind of lumbers along with a heavy step. She isn't very dainty and feminine!!:rotfl: .... I bet that whoever the CM's are in the Woody costumes do suffer from neck pain and other things like that. They have to keep their neck firm - stiff, really - all day long, trying to prop that thing up! All the costumes are heavy - and hot - but that long head on Woody must want to naturally give into gravitational pull and tip over because it is so long! I do hope the people in these costumes get paid well, because they are definitely suffering for our enjoyment!:lmao: :laughing: :rotfl:

That's cool! We don't have a Hard Rock Hotel out here in L.A. - just the restaurant.:mad: Otherwise, I would be going over there to check out their gingerbread display! I have always loved looking at gingerbread houses, and especially the ones that are really detailed or ornate - like mini villages, almost!

I think some of the holiday displays in the WDW hotels might feature a mix of edible ingredients - probably some marzipan and candied fruits along with gingerbread too? I am just guessing based on what many of them looked like in the shows I saw. Also, they use that super hard sugar that DLR uses to make the Mickey Pumpkins stuck in the muffins, and the sail on the Flying Dutchman at the BB. Now, that may technically be edible because it is made from food products, but I bet those displays are not very tasty once they are all put together!

Oh goody! Yay!:banana: Thanks, Judy!:cool1: The Travel Channel/Food Network shows that I saw only seemed to feature maybe three or four of the displays, but said they were in every WDW hotel, so I can't wait to see what they all look like since it appears we are not getting any of those at DLR any time soon! Darn it! Thanks again!

Here we are in Candy Corn Acres with Heimlich, who seems to have taken a bite out of the prize-winning confection. Now you see him...

I like the PhotoPass photographers because they can get my friends to pose in goofy ways and act silly, whereas if I asked them to do wacky stuff in photos, they would toss me over a railing somewhere! For some reason, when it is a CM requesting that they "look scared" or "pretend you are sleeping," they will oblige. I would just be met with eye-rolling and loud protests and snarls of disgust! So if the Disney folks can help bring out the fun in people and get them to 'play' a little, then I am all for it!!!!:cool1: There is no sense in going to DLR if you can't let the inner child out to play for a while!:goodvibes

Hee hee. Thanks! I always get giant, dark sunglasses! These in the photos are actually kind of new, and even larger than the ones I used to wear! I get sunburnt really fast - like in five minutes, on an overcast day, I start to burn. So I always get the darkest lenses/glasses I can find - and they are prescription, because I am blind as a bat otherwise - to protect my eyes, and then I get really giant lenses/frames to cover as much of my face as possible! Pretty soon, I will be able to find glasses that stretch down to my chin, and my face will be one big, dark lens!

You're right! I had forgotten all about that role, but now that you mention it, she sure was in that movie! She has been in a bunch of movies in the last few decades and most people recognize her face, but I know there have been one or two movies that Lesley Ann Warren was in that are more well-known to a broader audience - and, of course, not one single title comes to mind at the moment!!!

One thing I DO know about her is that she was one of the many girlfriends of Scott Baio long ago! That doesn't seem to be a very exclusive club, though!:rotfl:

Kelly, when was that trip where the price at the parks was so much different than online?

If you're talking DLR, read on. :)

It was likely last year, or at the very beginning of this year, yes? Since January they have been changing their prices and messing with the value of the whole thing, and it's all totally different at DLR than it was last year.

Last year there was the unenhanced CD you got at the parks for cheapie, and then there was the more expensive, enhance-able CD you could get online. Then they started moving the prices around, and I found that the price online and at the parks was the same, but they bumped up the relative value of the one at the parks by throwing in a few 5x7s (which could be enhanced, unlike the other pix on your CD). So now it's all at the 59 price point, but the one at the parks still has a couple photo prints.

When I ordered my CD last December online I still could have ordered things from online. And I'm certain you could order any cards while in the park and still order the CD online when you get home. They want you to buy buy buy, and the pix don't expire when you get the CD, they expire with time. And actually if you ordered cards online, it would then extend the time you have to enhance pix for the CD, which could then be ordered a little later.



Of course now that I've said all that, the photopass gods will hear and will change things around again. That's what they did when I was all Definitive-Girl about photopass last December and early January! Messed me up and the Dis didn't have the "find all posts by username" then so I couldn't go find all of my posts where I gave old information (definitively) so it messed up other people, too! :headache:

There's some rumor or information that Jack Sparrow won't be around much longer, but just in case that's an awful awful and wrong rumor, this is what happened automatically when a photopass photog took a Jack picture. You can't take the borders off, which is aggravating, though it is a very cool border. Just not on 30+ pictures (our photogs snapped a million shots of E with Jack, but most of them have ME in them in the background, not realizing I was in the pix, and I look MOST icky! must get photoshop to paint myself out of them!)...

Hubby will HATE me for this and would want to make sure I told you he's lost some weight since then, but this is the scared look in front of TOT they have you make. And then I added first the DCA logo and then the Tinkerbell b/c I thought it was amusing.

Those were from September '07, when I was part of a "share". I really didn't think much about editing the pictures, though I don't know why. I was really sparing with the edits. By the time December rolled around, I realized that even if I didn't like an edit/border then, my tastes might change over time, and it would be good to do the border now than wish I'd done it later on. So I threw every border that worked with a pic (sometimes the borders, like Tinkerbell flying, have words that would cut off Eamon when he was in the stroller, so that didn't work) onto every picture. Even the Jack Sparrow pictures, LOL.

December pictures to come.

If you're ever on the Triton carousel and you see a photopass person, grab them! His pics (while we were moving!) were much better than the ones hubby took before he saw the photog. And look at that little red-haired girl, she's so cute. I wanted E to meet her, to grow up knowing her, to marry her and have lots of little "recessively gened" kids (the tall, deep-voiced pirate guy called E "my recessively gened lad", LOL). :)

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b8df25b3127ccec35c669bc35900000010O08CZMmjFq1bA9 vPhg/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/


And then, just b/c I could, I cropped out hubby from the TOT picture to get a nice shot of the top of the hotel. Now why does the resolution on that crop look better than the rest of my uncropped pix?

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b8df25b3127ccec35c5e98427600000010O08CZMmjFq1bA9 vPhg/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/


In December we went through Mickey's House, not knowing that when it's not pouring rain outside (as it was in September when we did MTTMM and the characters were spread throughout the house in the hallways instead of outside) that Mickey hung out taking photos after the movie room, and got a cute series. This border is one of the options that showed up while editing...

During the Santa photos, E was NOT enthused. He'd already met Santa, but the photog's camera wasn't working. While we waited for Santa to come back from his break (we'd been the last pre-break) E was playing and fell, and was complaining about his fall. He was NOT into talking about anything else, and Santa got more and more desperate, LOL. For some reason this is the only shot I put the special border that showed up for this pictures.

And now the Belle pictures. :) This was E's first princess (he wanted to see them, and willingly waited about an HOUR in the line at the Princess Fantasy Fair while hubby and I desperately wished we didn't have such a rounded-interest kid). She wanted him to sit next to her, so he did, but sat waaaaay far away on the floor. She urged him to sit on her gown, right next to her, and he was extremely hesitant to do so. She practically told me to butt out, in a nice princessy way, when I was trying to think about the long line behind us and hurry him up (most parent surge their children to spend scads of time with the characters, but I was doing the opposite and she didn't like it!), and finally got him to sit there. He was NOT enthused.

And then he got bored. When I saw this, the book had just come out that's sort of the new version of The Rules but written by a man, and I called it the "Sorry Belle, He's Just Not That Into You" picture.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b8df25b3127ccec35de069629400000010O08CZMmjFq1bA9 vPhg/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/


But then he met Pocahontas (who he thought was Sacajawea b/c we'd been watching Night at the Museum repeatedly before the visit...he only just watched Pocahontas last week!) and he looooooved her. Pic with her to show another little doodad border they had last year (I must assume they have things like that each year).

And then he saw his fave, Princess Minnie. He was warmed up to the idea of the princesses by then, and he really does love Mickey and Minnie (sometimes I'm just not sure he's mine, as I HATED the characters as a kid!!!! hated!). So a couple of borders for princess Minnie:

Kelly, have you checked out stitchkingdom.com and the photopass info there? It's the Dis's bradk's site, and it's very WDW focused.

The one thing that's been a question is if WDW even has the unenhanced, buy at the park, CD. But with WDW you do want to do the pre-purchase of the CD, if you're going to get the editable one. Though from the experience of others, you do not, actually, have to PRE purchase it...just maybe buy it before you enter numbers onto your account. :)

I'm not going to give you the link to pre-purchase it for WDW, because I don't want to possibly confuse matters for DLR, but it's all over the Theme Park and Budget forums. And it's on stitchkingdom, I do believe.

I have no clue how large these pictures are going to show up here. It seems whenever I think a photo is going to be large, it ends up being small, and vice versa! In any case, here is one:

The Queen of Hearts grabbed my hair with her (his) left hand and was stroking it diabolically with the right, which startled me, in an 'Off with her head!' kind of way! I am in the Mickey t-shirt and that is my friend Shawn in the peachy-orange shirt:

Oh my gosh, when were you there??

Kelly, have you checked out stitchkingdom.com and the photopass info there? It's the Dis's bradk's site, and it's very WDW focused.

The one thing that's been a question is if WDW even has the unenhanced, buy at the park, CD. But with WDW you do want to do the pre-purchase of the CD, if you're going to get the editable one. Though from the experience of others, you do not, actually, have to PRE purchase it...just maybe buy it before you enter numbers onto your account. :)

I'm not going to give you the link to pre-purchase it for WDW, because I don't want to possibly confuse matters for DLR, but it's all over the Theme Park and Budget forums. And it's on stitchkingdom, I do believe.

Thanks for the info. I will check it out.

Oh goodness gracious, where was my brain? Thank you so much, and that's a funny way of letting me know. :rotfl: I love it when people can correct gently! It SHOULD be fixed. Though maybe I changed all the pictures to pictures of Oregon or West Virginia or something like that...even though my WV pictures are all film pictures not online, given the errors I've made in this thread today, I wouldn't be surprised!

Looks good now, not at all like WV or OR! :thumbsup2

Oh my gosh, when were you there?? These look recent, was just curious, I believe that picture of you with the Queen is awesome, the character on the right, I can't think of his name, I think is rare, when and where did you see them??? I am flipping out, hope they are out next year at Halloween. Thanks.:goodvibes

Oh, I almost didn't check this thread again tonight! I am glad I did - I didn't know there was a question for me!:cool1:

Okay, let's see - we were there from Oct. 2 - 5 this year - you are correct, it is recent - but we only had the PhotoPass pictures taken on the 3rd and 4th.

I must admit - the Queen was the only one whose name I knew offhand! I couldn't remember the names of the other guys either! Isn't that awful? I have seen the animated movies, goodness knows, but I blanked out on the names! (In my case, it is just age that is the excuse!) I was excited to see the Queen and so I jumped in the line for pictures! We saw them - and also the villain from Hunchback, who I have in another photo - in DCA, over in the Hollywood area. We were told to go there by a PhotoPass photographer over in the Grizzly Peak area. She said that many of the "evil people" would be making special appearances in the Hollywood area for the Halloween season only! Sully was also out, but by the time we saw him to get in line for pictures, he had to go inside to cool off, as it was a warm day! And the picture with Woody was taken in DCA at the TOTP on the night of the 3rd.

Thanks for the nice compliment! I am glad you like the pictures!:goodvibes I just wish I could remember the name of those characters in DCA who I took pictures with - usually, if I see a character, I just jump on in, whoever it is!!!

And here is one of those attractive shots that we women LOVE to have of ourselves - where our eyes are almost closed in a photo, at the end of a nice, long day! Eeesh... Well, even though I am half asleep in the picture, the background is pretty!:

Oh Sherry! The other 2 villains in your picture are: the guy in the middle is from Pocahontas. His name is Governor Ratcliffe. He is really ugly.

The guy on the right is from the Disney Channel show Tale Spin and his name is Don Karnage. The show came out when I was a kid and it was a spin off of the Jungle Book. I think it's super strange they brought him out during Halloween. It was a popular show, but it came out such a long time ago (1990) I'm sure a lot of people in the park didn't know who he was. I had to think about which Disney Channel show he was from.

Thank you both for answering my questions. Don Karnage, that is right, thank you. I think he is pretty rare. I so wish I would have checked out more of CA that night, but I was so tired from the flight out. Does anyone know if that is something they will continue for the next few years?? That would be so awesome, it really looks like they had a good many characters out. We even walked back by the Hollywood way and didn't see any, maybe it was just too early in the evening. Does anyone think they will continue this?? Hoping for the best. I wonder what the park will look like next year for Halloween. Also I love your picture with Woody and the green army men by Toy Story Mania, very awesome!!! Hoping for that much luck next year at Halloween.:goodvibes

Thank you, Courtney! Oh, goodness! Ratcliffe! I was trying to think of his name while I was at DLR and could not remember it! When I see Meeko out somewhere, I know Meeko is from Pocahantas, and I thought Ratcliffe was from that movie but his name totally escaped me! (Clearly I like the furry characters more than the human ones!) What is funny is that I could have easily just watched Pocahantas to get his name - or even look it up on the Internet if I was too impatient to watch the movie - but I didn't! So thank you for solving that mystery for me!:goodvibes

I guess some of the Disney villains are instantly recognizable and memorable to everybody, and everyone pretty much knows their names - like, say, Cruella, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts and Maleficent, and probably even Ursula and Jafar. Other villains you sort of look at and go..."Well, I know he/she is a villain, but I can't recall the name..."

As for Don Karnage, I was not sure where he was from, and I am pretty sure that my friend thought he was someone else!!:rotfl: I think she may have been confusing him with another wolf/fox - type character in Disney movies (back in the '90s, we used to see the Big Bad Wolf here and there around DLR), and didn't realize that he was from the Jungle Book spin off on Tale Spin! You are right - not many people would know who he was, and IF they did, they probably mistook him for another Disney character, like my friend did!

When you reminded me of Tale Spin and Don Karnage, I was looking at some of my DLR pictures from the '90s to see if he was in any of them. I didn't see him, but it is interesting to see the characters who were around back then and are not around now. In the early to mid-'90s, you would see Roger Rabbit out every day. A lot of the Tale Spin characters were out. The Three Little Pigs/Bid Bad Wolf were out. Jafar was always out. You rarely see any of those characters now, and sometimes, some of the ones you DO see are so perplexing, you think, "Why did they drag HIM/HER out of the vault and put him on Main Street?" And yet, characters who, I think, are extremely popular, i.e., Jack Sparrow, are being yanked from the park!!!:mad: :headache:

I assume they will continue to do up the Halloween decorations in both parks over the years, since that is turning out to be very popular, and I think they will keep doing the TOTP. I would also imagine they would continue to bring out different, rare villains for the Halloween season. I think it is a cool idea, and then it is also fun to kind of mix and match them, so you are not only getting the Queen of Hearts in a photo but Don Karnage too (???:confused3 )!!!! If the one PhotoPass photographer had not directed us to the Hollywood area to see the "evil people," during the daytime, we may not have found them. My friend was bored with that area and didn't want to go back that way at first. And at night, there were many more villains out for the TOTP, of course, but then there were lines and lines of people waiting for them, so we didn't get all the photos we would have wanted. We waited in a long line for Jack Sparrow (I am glad we did now!) and then we hopped into the line to get a picture of Jessie from Toy Story with the Green Army Men. I was not that thrilled with her, but I wanted something with someone from a Toy Story movie - or even just a Pixar film, at that point (since we had just missed Sully earlier in the day)! So, as we stood in the line for her picture, Woody came out and Jessie left! The CM who was coordinating the whole thing had to make an announcement to everybody that "Woody will now be joining us for pictures," in case any diehard Jessie fans wanted to get out of the line, I suppose! However, everyone was much happier to have Woody, I think, and we cheered! So that was a happy accident!

I think a really great photo would be to have Woody and Buzz together. I bet they did that in the old days, when Toy Story had first come out, but now Woody's and Buzz's heads are too big (Woody's is, literally and figuratively!!!:rotfl: ) to be in the same picture together! :lmao:

I love those, Tofubeast!!! You guys are a lot of fun! I love the one with your husband and Darth Vader. I would love to get one of those for myself (even if I have to battle Darth), but I hear they are very hard to come by! Also, I love the one of you guys looking scared (or scary) with the Matterhorn in the background. Everywhere we were told to "look scared" or "look scary" was in DCA, I think, or with the Castle in the background. We never saw any PP photographers anywhere near the Matterhorn, and it would be nice to have a change of background scenery. I am hoping I have better luck with more inventive backgrounds in December!!! We were told that some PP people were over at Woody's Halloween Round-Up in DL, but we never saw any!

I can tell you that some of those pics were taken mid-day or so. We had a touring plan that allowed for us to have "free time" in the middle of the day. We just stopped to smell the roses and kept finding PP photogs. Just keep your eyes open!! :thumbsup2

If you're ever on the Triton carousel and you see a photopass person, grab them! His pics (while we were moving!) were much better than the ones hubby took before he saw the photog. And look at that little red-haired girl, she's so cute. I wanted E to meet her, to grow up knowing her, to marry her and have lots of little "recessively gened" kids (the tall, deep-voiced pirate guy called E "my recessively gened lad", LOL). :)

Great pix and I totally agree-if there's a PP there, have them take alot of pix. I did last year and this is one of my favs. :cloud9: Oh, and I just noticed, it's the same animal, small world huh?:goodvibes

http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w158/ter623/1905DanielleoncarouselsealTINK6x4.jpg

Sad thing was this year even though we went to DLR around 10x's from Sept. to early Nov. I never did see a PP photog at the carousel. And I looked! I did see the photog who took the pix last year in the hub of DL this year and she took some great shots of us at the statue and around the hub. I mentioned to her that she had taken some great shots of DD at the carousel last year. She said she remembered DD, but I think they always say that. :rotfl2:

Just a few more days and I should have my PP from this year. :thumbsup2

I love those, Tofubeast!!! You guys are a lot of fun! I love the one with your husband and Darth Vader. I would love to get one of those for myself (even if I have to battle Darth), but I hear they are very hard to come by!

I am hoping I have better luck with more inventive backgrounds in December!!! We were told that some PP people were over at Woody's Halloween Round-Up in DL, but we never saw any

Darth was hard to come by, after many trips to DL without seeing him (sort of) I finally asked at Photo Services. They were very accomodating and told me when I could get the shot, and where, but if I came at a certain time and no one was there, the CM I spoke to would be there and take some for us. We were, and she did. :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

We ran into a photog once at Woodys. She took some interior shots (us playing poker, with the madame, etc.) and then offered to take more of DD outside. There wasn't anyone else around. So she took come great outside shots with the pumpkins, etc. Unfortunately her flash didn't seem to be working right and the inside shots are a little dark but I think I can correct them with Photoshop.

Last year one of the photogs at the hub took DD and I over to the right side and took some pix of us with Matterhorn in the background. This year there was a wall up for Pixie Hollow so they didn't take any that direction. However, I did finally run across one of the PP guys I recognized in front of the castle and asked if he could take some pix over on the right side and in front of Snow's grotto. He did, and they came out nice.

Sorry, you'll just have to wait until I get my CDs. popcorn::

If anything, they will probably have those same villains and more next year. I didn't see Jafar anywhere but I am sure he was around with Cruella and Maleficent somewhere at night during the TOTP. The Wicked Stepmother and Stepsisters from Cinderella were out at night, too, and they are quite rare!

I think they are mostly all the same now. DLR has almost all the same ones as WDW does now. I've gotten Tink, Stitch, Soarin', Hook, Darth, Mickey, Minnie, and the Ghosts (I think that's all) at DLR. I've actually gotten more at DLR since we spend more time at DL than at MK.

One of the ones you won't get at DLR is Simba. Too bad, as he's really cute. :simba:

Thanks so much!!! I was very lucky in March, I had been reading up on the different ones they offered and was lucky enough to see most of them all in one day, it was sweet. That one with the bird on my head was over by Nemo, I think it was something new they were starting but then it never worked out. The other shot they were doing, put you like inside a submarine, I have a few of those and will try and post them after work tonight. I am still a huge character lover, that is what I do, so really hoping for the best of luck next Halloween, and hoping I can save enough to do the trip. I think I spend most of my trip looking for characters and photopass photographers, but hey, that is what I enjoy. Oh and eating too!!!:rotfl:

Here are two shots of the other Nemo pose they were doing in March, I don't think they worked out real well. They are kind of cheesey, but fun.

Those are hilarious! You definitely have some good ones that not everyone else has! I wish they were still offering the Nemo PhotoPass options just because it is something a little unique, a little more colorful and playful, but, alas, those PhotoPass options are gone. And the Haunted Mansion ghosts come and go. Sometimes they have them, sometimes they don't!

I am kind of hoping that we will begin to hear back from people, as they start visiting DLR over this holiday season, about new, limited edition PhotoPass effects/poses just for the holidays (other than just Santa). So far, there is no word of such a thing, but it is still early yet! It appears that the Santa's Beach Blast PhotoPass set-up in DCA is not there this year, so I only know of Santa in the GCH and in DL at the Reindeer Round-up. As far as any other holiday PhotoPass locations, we have to wait and see!

Thank You!!! I am hoping that we hear back from people too as they are visiting during the Christmas season, I was kind of torn as to what time of year to go next year, Halloween or Christmas, but I think Halloween is winning out. I really need to find all those villians. I am still so shocked you saw them during the day. I can't wait!!! Hoping the trick or treat party next year is even bigger. :goodvibes

Jasmine, I just now saw your post! I had already shut down my PC for the night when you asked this question!

Do you mean will the Santa photo ops be available the last weekend, or did you mean will the Haunted Mansion ghosts be available as an effect? I know Santa and the PhotoPass people are GONE from the GCH immediately after Christmas is over. I asked Guest Services because IF my own trip happens (still not sure if it is), I wasn't sure if I would get to see Santa and the Carolers. They said the Carolers will still be around the weekend after Christmas, singing by the big tree in the GCH lobby but Santa is gone completely. So I assume that means he is gone from the Reindeer Roundup, too. Santa wastes no time in heading back to the North Pole, apparently!

As for the hitchhiking ghosts, seeing that they were not available when we went in early October, and then suddenly became available after that, I assume they will still be available as effects when you get to DLR. I hope!!! :goodvibes

My goodness! Your boys couldn't be any cuter! They were even cute while looking unhappy in the photos with Santa you posted on the other thread!!

I can see what you mean about the ghost picture not being completely framed and timed right, so that your arm isn't blocked and what not. But I still like it, and I wish I had gotten one! Those darn ghosts were not available when I went!:headache: And normally, the PhotoPass people seem to be more concerned about taking the best photos possible, but sometimes, when they are in a very congested area of the park, or there is a long line waiting for photos, they get careless and hurry along (that is my photo - posted earlier in this thread - of the Queen of Hearts pulling my hair came to fruition; I turned my head to see what she/he was doing and the photographer just snapped two pictures while my head was turned because there was a long line waiting). I know that area right around the entrance to HM is rarely empty, so it is a tricky spot to take a photo and they probably rushed. But it is still cute!!!

That happens too! We seemed to get a wide variety of photographers who really took their work seriously and wanted to frame everything right and get the best shots, but others were not as concerned, or maybe not as skilled at knowing how to get the best shots! But I still think your ghost picture looks fine! I don't see anything really wrong with it other than your arm/hand is blocked. I think it's cute!

I wish I had some pix to post but still waiting on my CDs to arrive. :confused3 Ordered on 11/11, standard shipping and haven't gotten them yet. I think they tried to deliver them late yesterday by UPS but we were at DL and they didn't leave them. Done know why as the slip doesn't say needs to be signed for and we see our UPS guy a couple times a week. He always comes between 5-6 p.m. but now won't be back until Monday. Too late to use my PP pix for my free Snapfish album:confused3 . I think the failed delivery was from Disney, not sure as all it says on the slip is PCS or PSC.

So, if it was my CDs yesterday, than standard delivery is 10 days, or 9 business days. Once I get them, I'll post some.

It was good. We got there about noon and it wasn't too crowded until the 2nd parade at 6:30. From then on it was packed. :crowded: Really hard to move down Main St. Luckily we watched the 3:30 parade and it wasn't bad at all. My Nephew did a great job as a reindeer-we were all so proud!

http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w158/ter623/102_0072.jpg

The castle looks amazing! So pretty. From a distance, IASW looks good to-we didn't get close. Sorry, I don't know about the gingerbread. I can find out next time we go.-Where do they sell them?

The tree at DL looks really good too-even up close it's hard to believe it's fake. I thought at night though the tree could have been brighter. Though I was told that when they light it at night snowflakes (of light) appear on the tree itself.

We only rode 4 rides. We left before the fireworks but watched them from the parking structure. We needed to get home at a decent time since DD had a softball tournament today. Fireworks were great! Got home at 10:30.

Yeah, and she might help pay for the CD too! (I know, I'm being bad. :rolleyes1 ) We'll have to see if DS is willing to put up with stopping for pictures. We might have a bunch of shots of him getting upset or trying to get away! I figure if we do stop and get pictures, we don't have to buy the CD if they we don't like them, so there's really nothing to lose. I just have to actually get the pictures taken!

Disneydaz, is that picture of the Castle from last night in your post above? It's gorgeous! That is exactly the sort of thing we have been waiting for over on a couple of different threads, where we have been asking for up to date photos and details of all the new lighting and decorations in DLR. The Castle looks gorgeous. I had heard that it had the same sparkly icicles that light up at night as it did last year, but with some extra oomph! Your picture seems to confirm that - it has the sparkly, illuminated icicles as well as some extra purple color that ti didn't have last year! Beautiful!

And yes, that IASWH exterior is stunning to look at! The colors are so bright that when you stand in front of it, it just sort of seems to hypnotize people for a minute! It really is gorgeous!

Oh, and over on the "Merry Eats" thread, a CM posted a list of all the places the gingerbread cookies with Mickey ears are sold (they also sell them in the candy shops around DTD, too). They are adorable!

Hey, times are tough and if you can get someone to chip in with you on the CD, that would be a wise thing to do!:thumbsup2 And you are absolutely correct - you won't lose anything by having the photos taken. You can even share them with people through the PhotoPass share/invitation e-mails before anything is ever purchased. So if MIL has e-mail and can receive the invitation to view the photos, she may decide she loves them and must have them at once! (That would be funny if all the photos showed your son trying to make a quick getaway! It could become a running theme in all your photos!) If not, no harm, no foul. No one has to spend any money if the photos don't come out great! And I must admit, some people's PhotoPass pictures seem to come out better than others, and I think that is due to the photographers!

Okay! I will post a few more ultra-hokey pictures just to keep the thread active!

Here are three examples of the standard "look scared" pose. As I indicated in an earlier post, I like to get into my 'role' as a scared person. My friends don't get that you are supposed to look scared and not try to smile!

My friend (in the peachy-orange-ish color) is trying to smile through looking scared, while I am really making an idiot of myself looking scared...or at least, startled!;)

It is hard to get my friends to even pose goofily now. In the old days, I used to take all kinds of ridiculously silly pictures of them, but now that we are older, they feel that they can't let go and just be zany - even at DLR! So if I try to ask them to pose that way, I will get dirty looks and derisive laughter, but if a PhotoPass person asks it, they will obey! Of course, they can't fully let go and feel they have to smile in everything, but it is a step in the right direction!!! My friend Jackie, as you can see in the third photo, just kind of abandoned looking scared. The thumb in the ear pose is more of a halfhearted wacky pose!! But yes, these pictures are cheesy, that is for sure!!!!:thumbsup2

Wish I had some. :confused3 I'm still waiting for my CDs to arrive. :scared1: I thought they attempted to deliver them on Friday but it was something else. I ordered on 11/11, they shipped on 11/12 standard shipping and if they don't arrive today that will be 10 business days (13 days).

I sent an email to PP Guest Services today as I'm now starting to get worried. I know all my pix are still in my account (even though some were supposed to exp on 11/11). I know the stickers I ordered only took a few days to arrive. Anyone else wait this long for delivery?

Wow! They are taking a long time with your CD! Mine arrived in 7 days from when they said they shipped it! Well, have faith. It will show up.:goodvibes Maybe the CD took the 'scenic route' to get to you! Anyway, you have already posted some great photos on here, so at least we got to see some of your PhotoPass pictures! We will anxiously await some from the batch you are expecting!:)

I just saw your post, I hope your CD arrives safely, I don't blame you for starting to worry. I have been anxiously awaiting to see your photos, as I know you always get some really great shots, it gives me ideas for my upcoming trips.

Thank you!:goodvibes I am a goofball - always have been - and I will attempt to take pictures of people sleeping, people eating, people talking, posing with inanimate objects acting silly, anything where I can get a good cheesy shot. So PhotoPass is a good tool to bring out the cheesy side in people! Yes, it was pretty fun in October, though not the MOST fun DLR trip I have had. I just posted a couple of old holiday photos over on the holiday photo thread, and as I was choosing the two pictures to post, I realized THAT trip in 1992 was REALLY fun! They had some cool Christmas stuff at DLR back then, like Candy Cane Lane. Now I am inspired to get out other older DLR holiday pictures and post them somewhere!!

Yakety76, that picture is so cute. I love the look on your daughter's face. I can just picture her thinking "um....are you crazy? What are you looking at? There's nothing there!"


Thanks! I think she gets it now that we have the actual picture, but at the time she definitely thought I was crazy.

That is too funny! She really does look as though she is thinking, "What is WRONG with you?" :lmao: So cute!

I wonder how many times I get that look in a day without realizing it. :laughing:

This is priceless, thanks for sharing!!! I love it, made me smile this morning before I am off to work!!!:goodvibes

Sherry E, You and your friends sure managed to get a lot of photopass pictures taken during your October trip. Good for you!!

After ordering the CD for our past October trip, I think I will now have to order one each time we go. It is so nice to have pictures of the whole family together and the photographers did such a nice job.

Well, I kind of just announced to my friends that we were doing PhotoPass to try it out, and forced them into the photos, and eventually they began to see it was a good idea!!:lmao: They even said, "This was a good idea." I actually wish I had done it last December instead, when we had extra folks with us, but I didn't know too much about PP at that point.

We had 58 photos in the initial account - that even seemed like more than I thought we had taken over two days. But after editing and all that, I turned 58 photos into 112 by adding the effects and all that. So I think the CD is a really good deal because you can get hundreds of photos for the same $66.95 (including shipping) price. And it is really good to have as a back-up in case someone's camera dies or just to have everyone in all the photos. Plus, it is nice to be able to add the Disney borders to some of them. So, yes! You should get a PhotoPass CD for every trip!:thumbsup2 I think everyone should. It can't hurt. Having the pictures taken is free and sharing them is free. No one has to spend any money beyond that, but I think it is a great bargain - by Disneyland standards, that is!!!

Oh my gosh, I just totally love your older Holiday photos, you so need to dig out more of them to share, I love it!!! You look like so much fun to be at Disney with, you might have to come over for a mini-meet with me on one of my trips next year, DL alone is ok, but it is so much more fun with another person sharing the Disney love!!!:goodvibes

Thank you so much for the nice words! I hope I am fun to be at DLR with, though my friends who have known me for 100 years are probably sick of me!:rotfl: So maybe I will seem fun to new people! I will attempt to dig out some more older DLR holiday pictures from the old albums and scan/upload/post!:santa: Some of my old photo albums will not let go of the pictures without a fight (it is the old, sticky glue on the pages), and I have to be careful not to tear anything, and some of the albums seem to let the pictures out very easily. So I just have to see what I can get out of the albums without any ripping!

Yes, we definitely will have to have a mini-meet on one of your trips! I am sure we could actually round up several DIS-ers in enough time to meet when you go! There are quite a few people from here who I have to meet so we should all have a big pow wow with one big cheesy group PhotoPass picture! I have not yet done a solo DLR trip, though I will eventually - probably sooner than later - but I am interested to see if it will be more productive for me, or if I will feel really weird! I think I would enjoy rides better with friends than alone, but the shopping and other stuff might not be too weird alone. Do you have any DLR-loving people near you in PA who are itching to visit the Mouse? It is always better to go with people who really share the same love of DLR.:goodvibes

Thats the thing, all my friends around here, well lets just say they think I am totally crazy for my love of Disney. So most of my trips are solo, which it really does kind of get lonely. It would be so cool to do a mini meet and meet fellow DISers. I would love that. My trips for next year, I am planning early but they are Oct. 15-19 and Dec. 9-14. I wish I could go before that, but money won't allow, plus I just really want to visit the parks at this time of year, so I have to be patient but I would love to plan a mini meet, that would be cool. I can't wait to see what other photos you have, I know what you mean about the older photo albums. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I posted a few more photos - not on the Holiday Photo thread but on the Favorite Character Photo thread this time. I am still plowing through the old albums, practically performing surgery to get the pictures loose!

So I just have to see what I can get out of the albums without any ripping!


Sherry, those albums (we now know) ruin pictures. So it's a good idea to get all that you can out of there and put them in an album that won't destroy the pictures. I had to take all the family photos, after I inherited them, out of those "magnetic" albums (why on earth they were called that I don't know...shoulda been called "sticky-back will kill your pictures" albums), and I have a few where I'm going to have to razor blade them out (though my Creative Memories future-consultant (haven't bought from her yet) says they have a tool for just such work) or cut the page in two the difficult way b/c there are pix on both sides, or sacrifice one side...not sure what I'll do yet, but it's on the horizon.

Good luck in getting them out of the books! I now have all my family pix in envelopes, waiting until I can find the "perfect" and safe album for all of them. They are all also the small 70s/early 80s print sizes, not even 3x5 for some of them, so the new 4x6 albums will dwarf the prints. :headache:

Ooooo, Lordy, I don't know what made me think those "magnetic" albums were a good idea way back when! There always seemed to be a good sale on them, so that must be why I kept buying them. Out of all my photo albums, I only have two or three which have pockets for pictures instead of those darn sticky pages! What I did today to remove a few of them was use a skinny metal nail file and that worked. I mean, they still came off the page a little curly at the ends and with some sticky residue on the back, but they came out without tearing. Ideally, I would like to get all these poor old photos in the "perfect and safe album," as you said and also have everything put onto CDs as back-up. It is always a good idea to have back up copies of photos in some version or another, but that is a costly endeavor when you have tons of photos! If I attempted to remove every single picture I have from every album and scan each one and then upload them somewhere, I would be scanning for the rest of my life, not to mention my computer would crash before I was done!

Good luck finding the perfect albums for your family pictures! I know what you mean about those older phots being smaller (and oddly sized). You are right - they were not even 3x5. Some of them were more square than that.

I wish I had some pix to post but still waiting on my CDs to arrive. :confused3 Ordered on 11/11, standard shipping and haven't gotten them yet. I think they tried to deliver them late yesterday by UPS but we were at DL and they didn't leave them. Done know why as the slip doesn't say needs to be signed for and we see our UPS guy a couple times a week. He always comes between 5-6 p.m. but now won't be back until Monday. Too late to use my PP pix for my free Snapfish album:confused3 . I think the failed delivery was from Disney, not sure as all it says on the slip is PCS or PSC.

So, if it was my CDs yesterday, than standard delivery is 10 days, or 9 business days. Once I get them, I'll post some.


Hey There, just wanted to check and see how you were making out with your CD, sure hope it has arrived, can't wait to see your photos. :goodvibes

Hey There, just wanted to check and see how you were making out with your CD, sure hope it has arrived, can't wait to see your photos. :goodvibes

I'm still waiting. :confused3 I got a email from UPS (after I sent PP my email) saying that they may, or may not have, received my package (11/26) for delivery-est. date delivered 12/5. With the holiday I haven't been able to get any updated info on the shipment but I'm hoping to do so tomorrow. Seems, according to UPS, that the hold up was receiving billing information from Disney--What the *&$#((%*! Disney said they shipped it on 11/12 and UPS said they didn't get the right info from Disney until 11/26. Has anyone else had this problem?

This has really annoyed me since I was planning on using some of the PP for Christmas gifts. I didn't get it in time to use in the free book from Snapfish and now I'm not going to get them in time to order calendars from Snapfish at 20% off. :confused3 Now I have to decide if I'm going to wait to get the CDs to make up my calendars. I'm probably going to make up my gift ones for DM, DSis's, DG, etc. and hold off on mine to use PP pix. It'll cost me more but I really want some PP pix on my calendar.

I know I could order calendars from Disney but they're about $10 more each, and with ordering 6, that's a big difference. Plus, who knows if they'll be received in time. :confused3

Thanks for thinking of me, hopefully I'll have pix to post this weekend. I also need to burn copies for our friends who joined us at DLR, and BB. I keep telling them the CDs are coming!:scared1: They're probably thinking yeah, and so is Christmas!:laughing:

UPDATE

Okay, I just received a call back from Disney Photo Imaging. :goodvibes They had emailed me their phone number and I left a message with all my info about 1/2 hour or so ago. A very nice CM called me back and said she was very sorry about the delay, and no it's not normal. She also said that since she couldn't verify the 2nd shipment with UPS she was going to resubmit it again. Also, since there was a 2nd shipment made, they no longer can track the first shipment (sent 11-11). Looks like I'll end up with 2, or 3, CD orders. And she's going to try to put through a partial refund for all the trouble. :flower3:

So, things as progressing, maybe I'll even get my 3rd order before Friday. They are sending it Express this time.:woohoo:

They came! I was waiting for the UPS man to come last night and he finally brought them at about 6 p.m.! :woohoo: (Side note-I'm glad PP agreed to send another sent Next Day since the set that was due on 12/5 has now been backed up to 12/8)

I was surprised to see only 3 CD boxes in the box since I have 2180 pix but no worries, this year they have 2 CDs in each box. I ended up with 5 total CDs. Looks like they can fit 490 pix per CD.

So, I've got some (real) work-the stuff that pays the bills, and I've made myself a promise that I won't do anything with my PP pix until I finish, but here's a preview of a few ours. More to come....

Yeah, that tends to happen...sometimes you have to keep a thread active and on the first page for a long time before people get around to seeing it. I know that I have 'just discovered' some threads that have been around for ages! But I know there are plenty of PhotoPass users out there, so I am sure we just have to coax them out of hiding!

jnjusoioa,

I know you like to look at everyone's pictures (of all kinds), so I just loaded a bunch of them into my trip report (link to TR is in my signature below), in the beginning sections and on the last page too. When I first wrote the TR a while back, I didn't have any pictures loaded or ready to insert. I am STILL not done and I have more to add, but for now I added PhotoPass, cell phone pictures, 35 mm, digital, ancient Kodak Disc photos, all kinds of things. Some you have seen before, some you haven't. But I have lots more to scan and or upload and insert, and it takes a long time so I can only do a chunk at a time! Anyway, check 'em out!:goodvibes

Hey there Sherry, just went through and checked out all the picturs you added, oh my gosh!!!! They are all so amazing, it is so awesome to see the recent ones and the older ones, wish I lived out in CA, I would love to be able to visit DLR often. Maybe someday, thank you for sharing those photos and I sure can't wait to hear about your upcoming trip too!!!:goodvibes

Ooooohhh..that IS an unusual picture, Judy! You don't normally see that setting for PhotoPass pictures - at least not on this thread. I like it because it does seem to be more 'rare' and it is a good concept with the reflection in the mirror and all. That ranks right up there with jnjusoioa's Nemo-related pictures (including the seagull on the head!)! It is something different that we don't see every day!

However, I must admit I STILL get a kick out of all the 'typical' poses that we have to do, and which we see regularly - such as looking scared or pointing at Stitch - because I like to see everyone's different interpretations of the same idea! Everyone has their own way of executing the poses and expressions!

Thank you!:goodvibes Did you see how bored I looked in my Buzz Lightyear picture? Yikes! And I LOVE that ride! I think I am going to try to scan some more older (and silly) ones and post them in my TR later today, so check back periodically. I really should get ALL my pictures scanned (even the non-Disney ones) just as a precaution, so this gives me an excuse to do a few at a time!

You can imagine how hard it was to NOT be able to visit DLR for many years (money issues) after I had been going there all my life! But, even if I have to go into DLR hibernation again for a little while, at least I have gotten a few good trips squeezed in in 2007/2008 - and some good pictures - before that happens. I am hoping this holiday trip in 2 weeks will be merry and festive, and that I will have gotten everything accomplished that I usually don't have time for when I'm there! I, of course, plan to be taking many more PhotoPass pictures, so you can definitely expect to see me pointing at Stitch in front of a Christmas tree or somewhere similar very soon!

I took a quick peak at your TR pics and I loved the Buzz Lightyear one! Too funny! :rotfl: We have a picture from California Screaming taken several years ago with myself, DH and my MIL and it still cracks me up. DH and I are both screaming (like you would expect to see) and my MIL looks so bored. In fact, she looks like she is sleeping! And she wasn't trying to pose like that like i know some people do, she just looked that way naturally. I ususally don't buy ride photos ($$$) but I had to buy that one because it was too good to pass up!

I just added a bunch more photos to the TR!! I go for two months with that TR up and NO pictures. NOW, I am a picture-inserting machine! I can't be stopped! I am on a roll!

Yeah, the on-ride photos are $$$, but some of them are so classic you just have to get them! I wonder how your MIL managed to look sleepy-bored (even though she didn't try to) on Caliornia Screaming. I didn't think that was physically possible! I assumed the sheer force of the ride would plant some sort of expression on one's face! It is weird how those things just kind of happen, but they make for great pictures! A lot of the best ones are the candid, un-posed photos!

Wow, you're a photo posting maniac! :rotfl: I love how you're not shy about getting in the pictures, just pushing everyone else aside. :rotfl: You're friend is probably posting a TR on some other board with captions like "here's my pushy friend Sherry who always has to steal the limelight. That's me behind her elbow." :lmao:

I have no idea how my MIL can look bored/sleeping on CS but she did. Maybe one of these days i'll scan it in a post it.

LOL!!!!:rotfl: :lmao: Actually, if you knew the friend in question, you would know she is the biggest limelight stealer around - so that is why, when I got those old pictures developed back in the '90s and saw how they appeared, I thought it was hilarious - but unplanned!!:laughing: :lmao: In the one picture, the blue character is totally ignoring Mandy (she is in a lot of the pictures in the last two pages of my TR), but I didn't see that until I got it developed! And in the other picture, when Chip came over to kiss my hand, I am usually very aware of banging into people or invading their space, so I am guessing that somehow my friend's proximity to me didn't seem as close in person as it appears in the picture, because I know I wouldn't have intentionally put my elbow in her face, and I am sure Chip wouldn't have instigated that, either! Mischievous chipmunk! But it LOOKS very funny!

But I noticed something when going back and looking at old pictures as opposed to photos from now. No one is having as good a time in the ones taken now as they did 'back then.' My friends used to be more willing to do goofy things like pose with statues and make funny faces and really act wacky in photos years ago - and people would look at the pictures and say, "Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!" Now, I look at the current pictures, and I just see serious 'older' people standing and smiling. There is no fun or joy coming across, really! I try to bring out the 'wacky' in people, but they let their age set in, I think! It is no longer allowable to be silly!

That is why PhotoPass helps a lot - the photographers encourage the subjects to be ridiculous, and my friends (sort of) go along with it! So let's see some more cheesy pictures, people!! Come on, Disneydaz, I know you are out there with more pictures for us!!!

Yes, LavenderPeach, you must scan and post the MIL on California Screaming picture when you can! I am anxious to see the sleepy-bored look! I bet it is hilarious!:goodvibes

Sorry for the delay, life interrupted, now back to the show.. from Disneyland (not all are cheesy, some are just too cute!)

These first ones are from a group of shots that my fav PP Photog took one day of my extended family-he took 39 shots in all, just around NOS! :grouphug: These were all from one day-I have many others since we went to DLR about 7 times during the time frame for these shots. :goodvibes

Those ARE great, Disneydaz! Worth waiting all that time for! I especially like the very first Hook picture and the group shot of everyone. And I like how there are different dueling poses with Hook. Of course, I love the double Stitch! I am going to demand those darn PhotoPass people put us in the Soarin' pose, because we would have a blast doing that one and they never had us do it!

See what happens? You don't post photos for a while, then become a photo-posting maniac! I am going through the same thing over in my TR! I am a picture-postin' fool (nothing so far today, though)! We can't be stopped!!:lmao: We are on a roll!

Now, somebody else out there HAS to have more PhotoPass pictures - past or present - to post! How about some with the current holiday decorations/PhotoPass Set-ups at DLR or WDW? I know you all are lurking out there. Come forth...join us!

Hey, Disneydaz - this picture of the kids where they are doing the Mickey ears has the Catalina Island/Avalon Casino on the mural in the background. That caught my attention right away, because Avalon/Catalina is my other favorite SoCal spot besides DLR! Where was that taken? I assume it would have to be in DCA, because what is now Ariel's used to be Avalon Cove restaurant, which was based on/themed around Catalina. We spent a lot of time in DCA in October around Ariel's, taking pictures, but I never saw that mural! Do you recall where exactly it is? I want to get a picture of it in two weeks!!

I know exactly where it is and be sure to get some pictures of it, and all the murals there, as it's part of what will be torn down when they change the entrance to DCA.:sad2: The murals are on both sides as you enter DCA, just past the entrance. The one with the Casino in Avalon (Catalina) is on your left. (near Guest Services) There's some great mosiacs inc. San Fran on the right side-I like the one with the otter. So cute. :goodvibes Most people just walk on by them as they rush in. :rotfl2:

The day we went with one of DD's friends family we ran into may fav. PP photog and I volunteered to take some pix of them by the murals. He also took ones of them "surfing" in front of surfer mural-I can post that later (now I'm on downstairs computer and I don't have PP Cds with me).

When are you going in Dec.? Sounds like you're going to be there during our block out days. Too bad as we could have arranged to meet up one day. Our passes are blocked from 12/19 to 1/4. I'm thinking of upgraded to next AP to pick up Sunday 1/4 as well as next Sunday 12/14, so we can see my Nephew, as a Reindeer, a few more times. We are going this Wed. since DD has a min. day and I'm just going to let her skip it. :goodvibes (And maybe we'll go to see the fireworks and snow on 12/12 or 12/18?:confused3 ) We haven't seen the snow yet. :santa:

The last few times we've gone I've made sure to take pix of more of the mosiacs. I just think they are so nice, and soon, they'll be gone. :sad2: And of course I want to do another batch of PP pix. Looks like they are now good for 60 days which works out great as DD is off track all of January and we'll be going a few times (at least) that month. I can get my Dec. and Jan. pix on one PP account (hoping to get 2 of DD's friends families to pitch in this time as well :goodvibes )

Oh, my group is guilty of the same thing - we walked right on by those murals at least twice! I guess I recall seeing them out of my peripheral vision, but didn't turn to really look at them. The Casino would have caught my attention right away! And then another time we went into DCA through the GCH entrance so we didn't see the murals at all! I most definitely WILL take some pictures because, you are right, by the next time I get to DLR (after this December trip), all of that will be gone forever!

I definitely want to see the 'surfing' pictures. It seems like you got quite a few different poses or some of the different effects that the rest of us have been deprived of, sadly!

Yep, if all goes as planned, I will be at DLR on the 19th - 22nd. Initially, the plan was for the 26th - 29th, which I didn't like. I found out I could save money by switching to the week earlier, so I did, and the 19th is the arrival date, though I think we probably won't get there until late afternoon and may not go in the park that day. I mean, I could go in because I have my AP, but I don't want to leave my friend who I rarely see in the hotel while I go cavorting in DLR by myself, so we will probably go in on the 20th, meet up with other friends, and then we will go in on the 21st. I will have the second part of the 21st to myself (evening), and then part of the day on the 22nd to myself, and then my friend is supposed to join me again before we head home. So it sounds like you are definitely blocked out with your AP. It would have been really fun to meet up! I have to start meeting some of the great people on DISboards - soon!!!

I saw the pictures you posted of your nephew as a reindeer! You said you got teary-eyed, right? That was sweet! The 'snow' is funny to the people from states where it snows all the time! But to those of us who don't see snow every day, it is kind of a cool effect to have in DLR! Even though the snow is more like bubbles, really!

Did you happen to see Disney Dreams' thread about the 2.5 Hour trip to Disneyland? Disney Dreams caught some great pictures of the snow falling in front of IASW!!

And let me bump this again - I KNOW there have to be people out there with more PhotoPass pictures who are being shy. A whole bunch of folks just went to DLR around the holidays. Anyone? They don't have to be cheesy, though those are the most fun - just have to be PhotoPass!

Maybe they're still working on them.

Here's another one of mine. I don't think I've posted it before.

The front of the park is going to look so odd when they get rid of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was iffy about having a fake GGB in DCA to begin with, but now that I am used to seeing it at the entrance, it will be so weird to NOT see it.

Anyway, another cute picture, Disneydaz! You have a whole treasure trove of photos to use just to keep this thread alive (what was it again? Over 2000?)! Anyway, my new PP CD should be arriving in two days, so I can start posting (that is, unless the CD gets delayed in the mail...and you know how that is!).

Okay, here we go! Y'all asked for it; you got it! Well....actually, no one asked for it, but I am giving it to you anyway!: PhotoPass pictures!! I will add some here and then add some others over on my existing Trip Report a little later (there are a lot of them), so everyone come check out the TR (link in signature) when you have time in the next couple of days. There are already lots of pictures in it. So, these PP pictures were taken at DLR this past December, the weekend before Christmas. You will recognize my friend Shawn, who was in the last series of PP pictures from October, and my friend Jackie, who also appeared in a few back in October. I am the one in the Blue Mickey shirt with the giant sunglasses on.

This was the very first PP picture from the trip. You're never too old to visit with Santa (at the GCH). Of course, I had to practically twist my friend's arm to get in the picture, but we will forget about that nasty little scene!;)...

A really cute French PP photographer took this picture. I wanted to ask him if maybe DLP sent him over to DLR, but I didn't.

Here I am, dueling with Captain Hook...except Hook is missing!!! (SO, by default, since I was the only one in the battle, that means I WON!!!:cool1: (And a totally different French hottie took this picture - where did all the French people come from all of a sudden?)

The PP photographer who took this picture was new, and we were her first photos in this location (on Main Street)...

Okay, let me just say that the PP photographer who took these next pictures made us laugh so much. He was my favorite. He was so funny. Blond hair and glasses - look for him when you go, everyone. He is great. Just tell him you are willing to do crazy stuff. He had us pretending we were getting run over by a train....which might have made more of an impact in the photo if there weren't people casually walking by in front of the train like they didn't have a care in the world!!: Kinda ruins that 'your life is in danger' feeling!!

Again, I am trying to be Miss Method Actress, like, "OH NO! I am really getting trampled by a train! I am going to die!!" Shawn can never fully get into her role, so she almost looks like she is doing a little dance, as if to say, "Hey, everyone, here I am getting run over by this train! Yee haw!":rotfl2:

And here I am, acting silly all my myself in front of IASW Holiday. There were other people waiting for PhotoPass shots too, but we ALL had to wait because someone in the line had a big Mickey balloon that was obstructing the view and nobody wanted the balloon in their picture. So there was a whole group of us waiting a long time for the person with the balloon in the line to move so we could get a clear shot. Never mind the hundreds of people standing in the line who got in the shot...but definitely no balloons allowed!!!

Sherry, great pictures! The ones of you and your friend looking up at the hang gliders came out really good and I love the one with Stitch popping up out of the present. I've never seen that one before. Usually Stitch is just coming up out of the ground.

Thanks!:goodvibes I got the feeling that not everyone knew about the Stitch/Present picture. We were clued into it by one nice PP photographer at one location, and he told us to go to the DCA tree and ask the PP guys to do the present picture. We didn't see anyone else picking up the present box, so I don't think many folks knew about it! I thought this was a particularly festive bunch of pictures because they are nice and Christmasy and colorful - more so than the Halloween batch! As I said before, I will add some different ones (and some of the same) to my TR, so be sure to check over there!!

Oh, and I meant to say, Lavender Peach, that the PP photographers never seem to know exactly how to position people for the Soarin' shots. We saw them do this with other folks and then with us. They want us to point up to the sky, which is fine, but sometimes they get us in awkward positions or have us facing each other and pointing up or looking at the camera and pointing and it just looks wrong when the picture comes out. The best way to pose for that type of character enhancement picture is to actually point and/or look up to the sky - not look at each other or face each other or look at the camera. Because when we are looking at each other or at the camera and pointing, we never seem to be pointing at the right thing! I posted the better ones here because I thought our other poses for the Soarin' shots looked stupid! Maybe I will post the stupid ones on the TR!

Thank you!:goodvibes You know I am a fan of your work too, Courtney!:grouphug: Yes, it seems that, unless some other lurking DIS'ers start posting their DLR holiday pictures here to show their Stitch pictures, the Stitch popping out of the present is not common. I don't know why the photographers don't tell more people about it. We wouldn't have known if we hadn't been tipped off, and we had to ask the guy to do it. But I didn't see anyone else doing it.

Hey, I love that one of you guys with Stitch and his ice cream mouth!! That's great! I didn't know they had that, or I would have asked for it! Darn! Those sneaky PhotoPass people never let everyone in on the selection they have!

See, you guys are posing the 'right way' in your Soarin' photo. I swear, the photographers we had didn't know how to pose people to make it look right.

Judy is right - I am glad that I (and you, as well as many others here) got lots of photos in front of the Golden Gate Bridge since it's coming down soon! It will be weird to not see it there anymore.

Sherry, great pix! :goodvibes Looks like you guys had a fun trip! I bummed out that I didn't know about the Stitch/present picture. We took pictures holding the present by the tree but the PP photog didn't mention Stitch. Once I buy that CD I think I can copy in Stitch from another photo though. It's worth a try.

Thank you, Dizneydaz!!:goodvibes I take that as a high compliment coming from a PhotoPass guru such as yourself!!:goodvibes It was a fun time. And as I said, I will post more PP pictures over in the TR thread, and maybe a couple of different ones here a bit later.

Yes, blame those sneaky PP photographers who didn't let anyone know about Stitch in the present. The funny thing is, they had you holding the present, so why didn't they do the Stitch overlay in it? I wonder if it was a technical glitch of some kind, like with my Captain Hook/dueling picture. As you said, you can always try to copy Stitch and put him in your present and see what happens. It is worth a try. Once we were given the tip and told to go the DCA tree, I specifically asked the PP guy by that tree, "I hear you have a picture where we are holding a present and Stitch pops out? Another photographer told us to ask you." And he nodded and shoved the present at us. But we didn't see anyone else at the tree even holding the present, almost like the PP people were keeping it low key! Maybe they have a lot of technical problems with that image.

Oh, and I should point out that my nighttime pictures in front of IASW Holiday not only had to wait until the person with the giant balloon in line moved out of the way (the PP guy said they were blocking the shot), but one of the other folks waiting to have their picture taken too asked our photographer why DLR didn't have him set up in a better location so he could get a vantage point without all of those people in line so close up in the picture. You see how many folks there are in the line behind me, and because they are all level with us, they are right there in our photos. It is very cluttered-looking. So the person waiting asked why the PP folks couldn't take a pictures from a slightly higher-up location like a platform or one where the people in line weren't so obvious. Being right in front of the line kind of takes away form the beauty of the IASW Holiday exterior. The PP guy said in a vague way that "Disney has a bit of a problem with PhotoPass, and they don't always feel we should be at the spots where we want to take pictures, but they want us to be at other places that aren't as great for different reasons...and sometimes we don't have the best picture-taking angles." He also said that they (DLR, I guess?) didn't really want anyone (PP people) out at the IASW Holiday location (not sure why), and the previous evening they hadn't sent any photographers out there at all, even though lots of guests want their pictures taken in front of the beautiful IASW facade. So I am not sure what's up with that, and why "they" wouldn't want the PP people at the IASW Holiday location - maybe because it IS such a congested, crowded area? In any case, our guy was out there, trying to do the best he could, hundreds of people, giant balloons and all.:rotfl2:

Thanks Sherry and Judy. We were so excited that they came out good. It was kind of weird looking at something that wasn't there. But end result came out great. And I agree with you I already have them framed and up on the wall because bridge and the sun won't be there much longer. I have a couple others we had taken in recent years over at the castle by the wishing well that came out nicely I will find them and post them for you guys they came out awesome. Again I love all the pictures they are so good.

I was so mad, because JUST as I got up to the Castle and found the PhotoPass guy, at that very moment, the sparkly lights in the icicles turned off. You know how they go on and off through the evening, and the icicles light up and glow, then go off, then light up, then go off? Well, what great timing. I wanted a shot with the icicles glowing, and instead I got this....Pretty, but not what I wanted. IN fact, the Castle kind of fades into the night and the crowds of people.

You're welcome - and thank you!!:goodvibes I figured you would want to know because this thread tends to lie dormant for chunks of time, and disappears into the murky depths of the board (wish we could get into Sticky-land). So when someone finally does post, you may not be looking for it. And Daisy had also posted her cool pictures, too, by the Wishing Well and such, which can give you an idea of another photo op when you get to DLR later this year! (By the way, I never saw any PP people by the Well in either October or December, so they must only go there from time to time.) Even though I hate hot weather, now that I have had these shots taken during Halloweentime and Christmastime, I would be curious to see what PhotoPass pictures I could get during the summer or during other holiday periods, like Valentine's Day or Easter, etc. I really prefer the holiday ones out of the ones I have done, just because they are more colorful and peppy. And I am very glad I got Stitch and the present, because in December they may not be offering that choice again. You never know with sneaky Disney!

Remember, you got those great Nemo-inspired shots that we all covet, in the sub and with the seagull, etc.!! So you have a rare treasure in those! You will get to DLR for the holidays. You have to! It's so beautiful and magical during that time. You have to see it at least once!!!:goodvibes And they probably will have added some new PhotoPass enhancements by then, so something to look forward to!

While we were all posting our recent PhotoPass additions to this thread - holiday and otherwise - I was thinking to myself that any picture thread just isn't the same without contributions from Jasmine! And here you are! So even if you haven't gotten a lot of PhotoPass pictures taken, it is good to see you pop in here from time to time!:goodvibes

Your pictures are really cute, and I looked for a PP person over in that section of DCA, but didn't see any when I passed through. I actually don't think the quality is too bad, though! As it is, not ALL of the PP photographers can take good pictures, and some of theirs come out too dark, too light, too distant or blurry (you can see all of those examples in my PhotoPass holiday pictures that I posted last week!!:rotfl2: ). Thank goodness we have the Edit feature to use in this day and age!!! I think my Stitch-coming-out-of-the-Christmas-present picture was the clearest, brightest one!

I love the picture of Shyboy and the car alone. TOOOOOOOOOOO funny!:rotfl2: You guys are a hoot!!

Awww :) Thanks Sherry! we really didn't have enough time to keep stopping at photopass spots and take any pictures and when we did, the picture they took with my camera was more than sufficient. I agree with you on the pictures that they take. If you notice the one with Eric hugging Lightning McQueen, the colors are completely blown out by the flash. I JUST learned a trick from my photography teacher this semester (we just started last week). He said if you put a napkin over the flash, it diffuses it (he even said using two would work too!). I reallllly wanna try it. Almost all of your pictures turned out fantastic!

I agree with you on the pictures that they take. If you notice the one with Eric hugging Lightning McQueen, the colors are completely blown out by the flash. I JUST learned a trick from my photography teacher this semester (we just started last week). He said if you put a napkin over the flash, it diffuses it (he even said using two would work too!). I reallllly wanna try it. Almost all of your pictures turned out fantastic!

Thanks!:goodvibes Except those darn PP photographers keep snapping me when my eyes are closed or in the process of closing. Somehow, we are not getting our timing right, and I keep blinking at the moment they are snapping!

Hmmm...that napkin trick sounds interesting to diffuse the flash. I love hearing about all those little inside photography tricks. It could be something you would never think of using or doing that makes a photo a undred times better. Yes, I bet that the PP photographers could all take much more than sufficient pictures with your camera - since we have all seen what your camera can do! Then again, it's your natural abilities and your photographer's eye that counts for at least 50% of why your photos come out so great. Probably more like 70%! The equipment you use is the other important part of it.

It seems to me that I recall reading some info about PhotoPass on some website. Maybe it was www.Stitchkingdom.com? Not sure. In any case, I think the PP photographers use their own cameras, not cameras issued by Disney. I could be wrong, but I think that's what I read. And I know I read that not all of the PP photographers are professionals. Some of them may be, but others are photography students and some are not even students. Some may just have an interest in photography! So really, almost anyone could get out there and start snapping!!! Some of them probably get cameras that are not as great as others and if you combine that with someone who is just kind of learning to take a decent picture and doesn't really know a lot of the tricks, then you come out with the blurry, the whitewashed, the overly dark, the poorly framed, the too-far-away shots, etc.

Even if some of the shots don't come out great (at least in the ones I take), I still think the whole PhotoPass process of taking pictures is a lot of fun, and as I said before, if it gets my uptight friends to loosen up and act silly and free, then it's worth it - because they won't act that way if I pull out a camera and ask them to. But they will do it for the 'official' PP photographers! I wish we could get this thread moved into Sticky status. It would be so much easier for newer people who are taking PP pictures to see the thread and post them on here. Otherwise, it fades into the archives and a lot of new PhotoPass people don't even know it exists!

Me too! If I think my eyes are closed I ask them to take it again. Recently on some of our pix I have cut and pasted in open eyes on ones where someone's eyes are shut. Since they usually take 2-3 pix rapidly I can usually get at all of us with open eyes that way.

There is definitely a difference in quality-some PP photogs are much better. I know of 2-3 who take great pix most of the time. I've had several recently we should have used flash fill and didn't. (in the shade, light directly behind us, etc.) Pictures came out dark-I'm hoping I can fix them with Photoshop. From now on when we get our pix taken in shadow or dappled shadow I'm going to ask them to use their flash. We'll see what happens. BTW the cameras are all the same, Disney issue, they do however each have names (John Smith, Capt. Jack, etc.) so the photogs can grab the right one.

The pix I have the most problem with are the night shots. So often the icon (castle, etc.) behind us in focus while we are blurry-and that's even if we don't move. :confused3

I agree it's fun. :cheer2: I've even taken some of the PP ideas and used them myself. Pix come out great! I too wish this thread was made stickly.

I will have some more PP to post in mid Feb. Got some great shots again (my fav. photog:goodvibes did it again)

Here's one I took of DD9 using an idea I saw of ones take behind a lamp posts. I think it came out cute. I'm taking as man pix of possible in DCA of the things that will be leaving soon.

That picture IS cute, Dizneydaz! She looks so cute in her little glasses!

Oh, and you are right about the cameras they use. I just checked the Stitchkingdom website again, and maybe they changed their info since when I looked at it a while back, or maybe I just didn't see this part of the text, but it says the PhotoPass people all use the Nikon D70, and they are attempting to phase in the D80. So it is a quality camera - and we have all seen the amazing, awesome pictures Jasmine has taken with her D40 and posted around the DIS. But Jasmine knows what she is doing and how to get the best picture from her camera. Some of the PP people have the right equipment but don't know how to get the best shots, I guess!

Yes, I don't know what it is with the PP pictures and why they keep snapping me when I am in mid-blink. The photographers don't see to notice it, and I guess I am not realizing that they snap when my eyes are closing, so I end up looking like I either have very squinty eyes or like one eye is squinty and the other one isn't!!:rotfl2: But when I walk around in daily life and look in the mirror, I don't see squinty eyes or one squinty eye or whatever!! My eyes look normal! Somehow this seems to be a PhotoPass-specific phenomenon that occurs for me!!! But I don't mind posting the ones where I or my friends look silly or have weird eyes - it adds to the funny factor of the pictures!!

Hi all, I got my new PP CD yesterday so I have more to post from Dec./Jan/Feb. Here's a few:

Standard Stitch shot but I didn't know (until I saw it on this thread) that you could get him by the waterfall. I just noticed I put the wrong year on this one-guess I'll have to fix with Photoshop.

DD9, DM, and me. Our last visit before the holidays.--------------Unlike Sherry, we didn't get the Stitch in the box, but I did use the picture the PP took with my own camera for our Christmas card. :goodvibes

Just one of the photos taken on one of our best days-Jan. 7th, first visit after the holidays. Our favorite PP photog was in Town Square and got some great, and different shots. ;)

That's adorable! Perfect for Valentine's Day! (I wonder if PhotoPass has guests do any extra cute things in pictures on Valentine's Day??) However, I must admit, I am so used to seeing a giant pumpkin or a giant Christmas tree in that spot where you guys are standing that I feel the need to put something tall there! I have to keep reminding myself that this is the way DL looks the entire rest of the year, when it's not Halloween or Christmas. I feel like I want to stick a great big heart there tomorrow, and then a great big bunny or egg or basket around Easter, and a giant 4-leaf clover on St. Patrick's Day!

This is me with my sister and nephew. He wasn't feeling the posing groove and was there not by his choosing.

But after taking a couple photos he started hamming it up and star in his own show.

You're lucky - at least in your Small World Holiday pictures, you didn't have tooooo many people in the shot behind you. If you look at my version of that same photo from a page or two back, you will notice my situation was much different. You almost got a clear shot with no people. I didn't have such luck. And we had to wait for someone with their giant, honkin' Mickey balloon to move out of the way so that it didn't obstruct the view! Meanwhile, there were already 1000 people in the picture, obstructing the view!

The only "staged" photopass picture I have....all the rest were just nice family poses.
