photopass question, to + or not???
 
Here is my question. We are planning a 4 day, pre-cruise trip to WDW. I pre-purchased the + last September for our 10 day trip and thought it was awesome. SO MANY photos! So, my question is this... Do the photographers really take more for those who have the + vs the regular? I know the main difference is the ride and restaurant photos being included in the +, but I have also heard that more photos are taken if you have the +. Is this just an "assumption" by others or does anyone have experience with it? We were thinking of saving the extra money and just buying the regular this time. Thanks!!

I think they did, and like you said it's nice for the ride photos, and dining photos, but if that doesn't really appeal to you this trip, I've heard you can tell them you preordered the cd, and they will spend more time with you ;)

Thanks for the info! I know if we pre purchase the difference is only $30 so maybe we will just do the +

Having done PP+ at both DLR and WDW and a half dozen photoCDs at WDW, I can't say I noticed any trend of getting more pics with PP+. Yes, a few did seem to take more pictures, but I still had plenty that did the 3 shots and done routine. I definitely notice more response from the photographers when you seem to be into it. Interacting with them, having a particular request, hamming it up for the camera, that type of thing always seems to get more pictures than just walking up, asking them for pics, and handing them the card. I've had some take 20-30 pictures in different poses and do multiple magic shots just because we asked them to do one pose we wanted, as we had plenty of the normal poses.

I've only used the photopass card and that was in 2010. It was great in that when we got home we got all sorts of pics. But I didn't buy that many due to price.

Would someone please explain to me what I would get for $199.00? And how it works for a family of 4? Last time I had to upload all the card numbers cuz we split up a few times.

Thanks In Advance for any assistance.

If you preorder it is, $119.95 for reg photopass, and 149 for photopass+

For that price, you get every picture that they take at the parks put on the cd, and if you get the pp+ you get all the pictures, all dining pictures and all ride pictures (so if you even get 1 dining photo package or 2 ride photos, it pays for the rest) With reg pp, you can have as many cards as you want and add them to the account, with pp+ you get 1 card for all ride and dining photos, and then you can also add the normal cards if you split up.

also if you do split up and someone goes on a ride but doesnt have the card, have them right down the photo number, and you can go back to the ride later that day and have it added to the card :) Hope that helps :cool1:

I would, if your planning on even doing chef mickeys or another dinner package that does photos, you pay for the photo and get all the rest free :)

Another Photo Pass + Question
 
I'm planning character dining at Garden Grille (dinner) and Tusker House (lunch). I noticed that there are no photos included in the dining packages. However, are there Photo Pass photographers there?

magictam2 06-16-2013 08:49 PM

Bertnie20, thanks for the info. We already have our reservations, for Chef Mickey so I think we will do the photopass+.

Because my kids ask at every ride to buy the photos and my answer is always no.....I will be getting the + so they can have those photos they want so badly. I was so happy when I learned about it because the ride photos are crazy expensive and with 4 kids there would be a lot of them.

Garden grill doesn't, tusker house does ;) they take a picture outside before you go in. The others are Ohana, chef mickeys, cinderellas royal table, akershus, 1900 park fare, hoop de hoop, mickeys BBQ and spirt of aloha

No character meal actually has photographers at the meal. The ones that participate in PP+ simply take a staged picture before hand. I believe CRT, Akershus, and Tusker House have a character for their picture, the others are just in front of backdrop before you enter.

Does the PP+ include everything even if you want to get a mug or ornaments?:flower1:

No those are special extra purchases.
