Photopass+

Hi!

I'm going on my second trip to DL, this time solo. I would like some photopass pictures so I will be in some pictures. I will not be doing any character meals, because Club 33 is taking most of my dining budget! (But that's ok, it's totally worth it!) I don't always buy my ride photos because I'm usually just grinning from ear to ear, but I do occasionally buy some.

Which rides are added to photopass+? I am assuming that Club 33 doesn't take your photo, but I might be mistaken, as I've never been there!

I didn't see too many photopass photographers last time, but this time I'll hunt them down to make sure to get some pictures, especially the magic shots.

Those of you who bought it, have you been happy with what you got from photopass+?

Yes - we did it on our 7 day trip in Nov and the pictures were great! Nice compliment to the picutres I took -- esp cause we got the entire family in the pictures taken by the photographer!!

Thinking about buying it again for our 3 day trip this May!

I have never seen a PP photographer at Club 33 but the staff are happy to take pictures of your party with your camera or phone.

Disneyland Participating Attractions:
■Space Mountain
■Splash Mountain
■The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™
■California Screamin’
■Radiator Springs Racers



We found it was worth it but that was for a 6 day trip. Don't know that it would be worth it for a quick trip.

For a trip like yours I would heavily consider just doing the normal photopass CD, not the Plus. Unless you're going to do lots of the picture rides, multiple times, so that the digital images of them (you do not get the print packages of ride photos with Plus) are worth the difference, it *might* not be worth the upcharge from the normal CD.

If you preoder the PP+, it's the same price as ordering the regular CD after the fact. The only time that there is a price difference is if you buy it in the park.

Thanks everyone! I think I will order it for that price. I'm travelling solo, so it would be nice to get some pictures of me. And I think I'll try to do some silly poses on some rides, especially since I've usually just got the same goofy happy to be in Disney grin on my face.

I took photos on my annual pass on Apr 21 (yesterday) and plan to go again a few times including May 21 (a 5th birthday!) where we have reservations for Goofy's kitchen.

I want to buy the whole CD and get lots of photos on it. Does the 30 days start apr 21? Or the day I go look at them? Right now Photopass says I dont have any photos because I havent put in my AP number yet.

Bascially I want one CD for April21-May21 photos.

Can it be done?

(sorry for the hijack! I didnt want to start yet another photopass thread!)

I don't mind if you hijack! I hope someone can answer your question for you though. I have only used photopass at WDW and I'm not sure if they are the same or not.

I have a question: I am a little under the 2 week pre-order period, but went ahead and ordered the PP+ anyways...how long did it take you to receive your voucher? And do they arrive UPS/Fedex or regular USPS?

I ordered on a Tuesday evening and received it in Washington state on the following Monday, less than a week after ordering! It arrived in my USPS mailbox. A very happy box to receive!

Quick question about pre-ordering the PhotoPass+ voucher:

Does it matter when I use it? For example, could I order it now in May and use it in September? P.S. Thank God for The DIS or I wouldn't have known anything about this. The PhotoPass site was very uninformative.

As long as you order it in enough time to get it before you leave - mine did not have an expiry date, but if you are planning to not use it until next year I'd call to double check. September would be fine.

Thanks! I'm putting it on my To Do list for June.

Where do you turn in your voucher to get your photo pass + card? Is there anywhere in Downtown Disney to get it?? I would really like to have it before we entered the park.
