Photopass Pre-purchasing info needed!

Looking to save money and pre-order a Photopass CD-Rom. If I remember reading correctly there is now a Photopass Plus that allows us to get our photos from certain attractions and dining options on the CD. How do I pre-order the Photopass PLUS option? Is there a special code needed or anything to get a discount on this? Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. Thank You!!

That link is for the Disneyland photo pass. You certainly don't want to order that if you are going to WDW!

PP plus is also available for pre-order at a discount.

If you add the "plus" to your pre-purchased regular PP once you are there, you lose the discount, from what has been posted on the boards.

So I know I want the WDW Photopass plus because it includes some of the dining photos like at 'Ohana which is traditionally our best family photo and it includes some of the ride photos like Test Track (yes, I know it is currently shut down). So I pay the $169.95 and they send me a regular photopass card- where and when do I upgrade it to plus with the voucher they send with the photopass card? What if w take some photos on that card before we redeem our voucher to make it a plus card?? Any details that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!!

BUMP! Hoping someone can help to advise on the details of how to change the regular Photopass card they send by mail to the Plus option- where and when can this be done? Thanks very much!! :-)

They don't send you a photopass card. You get it from photopass photographers in the parks. You add the number from the card into your account when you get back home.

One word of advice - take a picture of the back of your photopass cards in case you lose them. If you lose the card you can get a new one but there isn't anyway to get the number of your d card. You can add multiple cards to your photopass account.

If you want the photopass plus deal I would preorder it from the link that was posted. That is your best deal

From the link that vicki_c posted you when you preorder the photopass+, you get a voucher that you exchange for your card at the parks.

I'm from Australia and we are taking the kids back to Disneyland in Nov. I always buy a photopass of our trip but was wondering if doing a prepurchase would give me anything extra? I've never done that before. Anyone done it in LA? Do you have to go in the park to redeem voucher? Would hate to miss the photos at the entrance... any ideas?

You do not get the photopass plus card from the photographers.

Here is the link for the plus preorder.
