Photopass+ arrived today

I'm so excited, ordered it really early I know but couldn't wait. Have to wait for the wife to get home from work though before I open it.... AAAARRGGHH!

It's never too early! I might sort ours out soon.

I admire your will power, I'd have opened it by now and would have blamed the opened package on the postman!

My memory photo via quidco has 25% cash back on all sales and an additional 10% off if you buy a voucher for a product valid for 12 months.

Might be worth looking at to get a cheaply voucher ready for a photo book to print your Disney Images into.

Not that I'm a little too excited about having the photo pass or anything!!!

Looked through the photos now! There are some incredible ones. Wish there wasn't so long still to go... Really feels like its getting closer though.

We hadn't planned to. Always considered it more for younger kids (not big kids like us!). Might take a look though, would you recommend it then, for two adults?

Absolutely !!.... we had a blast with the characters. As our 2 kids are "big kids" we all had some really fun interactions going on with Lotso and The Mad Hatter and it's the ONLY time you get to have a meet and greet you photo taken with ALL 7 dwarfs

It does sound more tempting as I think about it. Do you have to dress up? How much does it usually cost?

No you don't have to dress up, although having said that LOTS of people do, adults as well as kids. We decided to compromise as none of us wanted to go the whole hog but we definitely wanted to enter into the spirit of the event. We ended up wearing Jack Skellington pajama bottoms and t-shirts. You can see in the right hand sig pic

sorry I forgot to answer your other question It was about $60 but the price varies depending on the night you go i.e. Halloween is more expensive than the earlier nights.

It is quite a bit but I see it as a one-off experience and IMHO it was certainly worth the extra $$$ just for the character meet and greets

Same for us. We don't have any kids yet and we still had a brilliant time. Infact last year we enjoyed it that much we decided to do it again that trip. Meeting the 7 dwarves is always fun! I love looking at other peoples costumes, some people are so creative.

P.S Just realised that we're all going at more it less the same time! Nice to have others to count down with! x
