I am uploading photos as I type this. We had 109 PhotoPass pics including our Luau photos. I have edited those and now have 300! I have uploaded a bunch of photos that we took with our camera. I have edited those to make another 200+ and with this new batch will most likely be over 700!

I can't wait to get the cd! Maggie

Photos that you upload and edit aren't on the CD are they? Has this changed? They have not been available on the CD before, but I know the Photopass website has changed.

You can upload your own pics? That sounds a little too good to be true? Can you access borders, sigs and special FX (tink, simba etc.) with your own pics? Can anyone confirm?

Timing Questions

I have looked through a lot of photopass posts and sites, but am still a not clear about the deadlines for certain actions. I would appreciate confirmation or correction on the following items if anyone has been able to find the answers (not looking for guesses):

1. When you order a CD, your order is good for 180 days. I assume that this means you must order your CD within 180 days (or does it mean you must have pictures taken within 180 days, and you then have 30 days to order, see below).

2. When you get one or more photopass cards, each is good for 30 days. I assume that this means each must be linked to an account within 30 days from the first (or last?) picture.

3. You have 30 days to make edits and order your CD. 30 days from when? Entering your first PP card? Or your last one?

Some posters recommend waiting until after your vacation to enter your PP cards to your account to increase the time you have to make edits. This increases the chance that you will lose the card numbers. I would feel safer adding the numbers at WDW as soon as I get the cards. I would like to be sure, however, that pictures taken after adding a card number would be included. I would also like to be able to delay the ordering deadline to 30 days after the last card is entered.

Photopass is a complex program. The verbal descriptions have fillled many pages. Some of them mention these deadlines in passing, but do not clearly define them.

Photopass and Character Dinners

I have got a bunch of character dinners planned and scheduled and want to make sure I am clear...

When you are at character dinners, you can use your own camera, right? Will the photpass photographer also use your camera in these events? I know that they will us our own camera out in the park (from what I have read) but I want to be sure that I can capture the magic on my own camera.

If yes (like I assume) then what is the real benefit of the PP photog? Can I not get the same great picture with the character with my own camera for "free".

I'm happy to spend my $100 on the PP CD and make that investment, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of speding upwards of $30 at each character dinner (we're doing 5)!

Would love some perspective on this.

I guess the same question would apply to character meet and greets in the park...

Thanks All

FTDD

I'm totally confused. I thought the photopass was free then you purchased whatever pictures you wanted!

Photopass

How long are your photos stored on the site once you get home? We've been home for 3 weeks and keep forgetting to look at them.

TIA

I believe it's 30 days from the first time you enter the photopass cards to your photopass account

If I remember correctly, that's true but you also have only 30 days to enter the photopass cards. So a maximum of 60 days from the time the last pic was taken? I wouldn't wait any longer Hidden Mickey.

OK, I just checked on this with my own account. Photos of your own that you upload can have some borders/icons added, but they're different than the regular ones available on the Disney Photopass photos. You can purchase a 4X6 of these photos for $1.49 - that is the only size available.

Photos you uploade will NOT be on the CD. I went to the screen to purchase the CD, and it gives the number of photos to be included on the CD, and the number does not included my uploaded photo.

It sounds like someone here spent some time editing their own uploaded photos expecting to get those on the CD, but they're going to be disappointed.

When going to CRT do I have to bring a photopass card with me or will they have them there?
