There are photographers in all the parks. Anyone can have a photo taken. rather than buying individual photos they do a deal where you can buy a photopass which means you can have as many photos as you like taken for a set price. It is cheaper if you pre order.

It means you can get family shots and also they do fun shots like superimposing tinkerbell, balloons etc. You can add borders to your images.

They will also add bibbidi bobbidi boutique photoshoot pics at no extra cost (no need to get the expensive BBB package)

As Uk visitors tend to go for at least 14 days it is a good deal as it is a set price no matter how long the trip.

Photopass plus is new and also adds the photos from character meals and ride photos.

The photographers will take pics with your own camera but will usually do more if you have photopass.

We've used it before and have photopass plus this year. It costs approx £100 pre paid.

You get a cd and can print the photos you want - we tend to use photobox online to print them.

We had ours extended to cover our full stay. I didn't even ask. The CM asked how long were were here for and I told her 18 nights and she asked to see my KTTW card, verified the check out date and gave me the card back to cover our entire stay. The reason they are doing this is to stop 2 families or more from having stays within 30 days of each other all sharing one card so they are making sure that when it is activated for first use, it expires at the end of that guest's stay to avoid it being transferred. I wouldnt' have thought to ask and all I had asked was if they could activate it to start the following day so that we could use it for a full 14 days, since i collected ours around 9 pm on arrival night.

Is this worth the outlay? Just thinking it would be lovely to actually get a whole load of family photos with us all in for a change? How many photos do you end up with roughly? We'll be there for 2 weeks. May have to start saving x

Just a quickie, I think the answer is yes but I'm confused (need to stop working nights ) I discovered photopass and photopass plus too late for the upgrade, we leave in 9 days.

Can I walk up to a counter somewhere and buy photopass plus or is this only for those who pre-ordered prior to the 14 days?

Thanks

Very worth it, some people reported having 800+ photos. I plan for all of us to be in most of ours. Also the photographers often catch photos you couldn't .
