Just wanted to throw my 2cents into this. . .

We got back a week ago. LOVED the photo pass plus! Exchanged our voucher in the camera shop at DCA. CMs were great. Knew just what to do. Reminded me to take a pic of the card as soon as I got it.

Agree with those that mentioned the card falls off the lanyard easily. Mine did. Never lost it fortunately, but be aware.

LOVED having the ride photos! I always wanted those photos, but would never spend the monies on them before. That alone made it worth the investment! Additionally the Surf's Up photo was nice. Only one pose, kind of bummer. Glad I have it, but NEVER would've spent the money on the package by itself. Again a nice "plus."

In the end, VERY glad I purchased the PPP. Would definitely do it again. Unfortunately my next trip is to WDW. Still debating if the added cost there is going to be "worth" it.

One extra tip - PP Photographers seem to be at a minimum on Sundays in the parks. At first I teased my kids thinking they were distracting me from noticing the photographers (it was our 4th/last day and I feared they were tired of posing). They laughed at me, but assured me they were not put out and that they also noticed fewer photographers around. So if your day includes a Sunday - and you want photos, you'll have to seek and find!

No, they didn't make me pay first. They all seemed very familiar with the PhotoPass+ and knew that we weren't supposed to pay for it.

Questions

We are going with my brothers family. Can we share
A photo pass or do we each need our own?


Do they only give you one card or is it possible
To have 2 cards so you each have one to scan.

Thanks do much!

You only get one card. And the card holder has to be present. All though you can add addition photo cards to the photopass plus acct to add too the cd. But as far as ride photos you'd have to write down the photo # and the card holder go back w/in 24 hrs to have it added. At least that's my understanding.

That's correct. You can only get one plus card, but you can get as many regular photopass cards as you want. So the photos around the parks would be no problem. The ride photos and character meals would be the things that would be a problem. You don't need any ID to use the plus card so you can hand it off as needed for the ride photos. It would be a bit of a hassle to go back and add ride photos, but I think I would share rather than spend another $70.

We just got back and LOVED having this card. Had no trouble with it falling off at all. We just made sure whoever went on a ride had the special pass then put other photos on my AP if needed for PhotoPass pictures when we all weren't together. A little surprise. I had the lanyard on when we took grandkids on Maters and when we got off a PP photographer asked to scan my card as he had taken pictures of us on the ride. Nice!
Aslo..they have BOATLOADS of PP photographers around. I've never seen this many out and about.

How fun. I hope they will do that for us. Good reason to wear your lanyard that way they can pick you out of the crowd.

Where is the camera shop at DCA now? It used to be right across from Soar'n. Is it still?

This was our experience as well. We kept running into photographers who were more than happy to take photos. For the four to five days we were in DLR, we ended up with nearly 180 photos taken by staff photographers.

Pre-paid PP+ was the best deal of our trip!

We went mid October and there were quite a few Photopass photographers in DCA, although I wouldn't say tons, but they were pretty scarce in DL. It sounds like others are having different experiences but I just wanted to share mine so people aren't counting on having tons of photographers around. Maybe we just hit a bad couple of days but I really had to hunt down the photographers in DL.

180 photos on the PPP for $69? Seems like a nice deal.

We were there in August and DCA had lots of photographers. We had several pictures taken around Buena Vista Blvd. Also Carsland, by Little Mermaid, on the wharf and Hollywood Backlot. Not as many in Disneyland.

It's to the right at the very front of Buena Vista Street, next to the bathrooms there.

I can't remember the name, but it is right at the front, to the right hand side, by the lockers. Julius Katz? don't recall...
