Having never done it, I don't know from experience, but I am almost certain you can do that. (we plan on putting pix from our entire trip on there too). You enter the photopass card numbers on the website after you get home and then order your cd so I don't know how they could keep you from putting other days on there. Now, I dont think you can add your portrait session pix to the same cd but I am not exactly sure how that works.

I've never gotten the Premium package but have gotten the Photopass cd many times. The last time we did do the pictures at the GF and it was all on the same cd no problem.

You can put them on the CD that you order from the Disney website after you come home and enter all your photopass card numbers.

However, you also get a CD of the images from the resort photo session that day after the session. That is a separate CD. However, we also got a photopass card in that CD case and then we were able to enter that code on the website and have those pictures included with the other pictures from the Park photopasses.

Hope that makes sense.

So when you do a portrait session you have to buy a separate cd but, you can also get a photopass to put the portrait pix on your regular disc, is that correct?

When you say "you can also get a photopass to put the portrait pix on your regular disc", if you mean you also get a photopass CARD, then yet. That is correct.

I think if you do the resort photosession and only get the print package (and not the CD), you might not get the photopass CARD that allows you to put those pictures on your PARKS photopass CD. I'm pretty sure that when I did this, the only way to be able to get your pictures on the Disney website to add the borders, etc. was to buy the CD.

I bought the resort photopass CD and I got the photopass card with that. Then when I got home I was able to add those pictures to the PARKS photopass CD that I had preordered. I was able to add the borders, etc. to them.

So in essence, I have 2 different CDs that have my resort photo pass pictures on them. One of them also has my PARKS photopass pictures.

Yes, the photopass card, that is what I meant. Thanks so much for the info, that is what I thought but I wasn't sure!

I just noticed on the Platinum plan it says you get pretrip planning coordination. I haven't seen a number or who to contact listed anywhere. Does anyone know about this?

Found my own answer. Funny what happens when you do a little research

So talked with the IPO at AKL. Gave her the things I wanted and general times. I wanted Le Celliers for lunch one day. She seemed a little hesitant. I thought it is because it is hard to get. She said something about it not being the best steak place on property. I told her I knew I just like the soup and bread and haven't been able to get a reservation in about 2 years. So she said ok if that's why. I said well if you can't get it then Coral Reef will be ok. She said it wouldn't be a problem. So do they get first priority? I hope so. Another reason to use Platinum every few years. Has anyone not been able to get any reservation they wanted using IPO?

Also reference the Wishes cruise, are you guaranteed a music boat? I forgot to ask her. Also how will you know if you are being put with others. I want to order some drinks and things for the boat and always share. I'd hate to over order, but I want enough to share with those on our boat.

I totally agree with the poster who suggested you change your plan to 1 nite and drop to a Premium pkg UNLESS Victoria & Albert's is a required.

By doing Premium, you would save $56 pp for the nite, and $220 pp per nite for the other 2 nights ($992). Even keeping Platinum, you would still save $220 pp per nite for the other 2 nights ($880).

Either way you STILL have 2 full days (you would get 4 days w/3 paid nites) for all activities (pkg is good on check-in day and through midnight of check-out day) so you could spread out your 3 meals pp to include 2 signature dinners and 1 signature breakfast (CRT) or lunch (HBD).

If you are not TOTALLY sold on staying deluxe, you can also stay ANYWHERE using Premium (we are doing POP since not much time will be spent in our room).

You still have to buy a 1 day ticket for each no matter where you stay. Since you already have an AP, you don't need to wait until the package begins to access parks, so choose room-only for the 1st & 3rd nights and you can ALWAYS go back and apply the 40% discount to those nights. All you need to do on the second PACKAGE day is go to the front desk and switch room keys.

Seriously, there are ways to do your trip for less $$$. Consider suggestions, confirm with your DD what she REALLY is interested in doing, look at the time available to do THOSE things, then make your choices. Otherwise, you will wear yourself down with all the indecision. Trust me since I just went through this! Once I decided, booked all activities and meal ADR's, then CANCELLED the ones I knew we won't need, I have felt a huge relief. Now all I have to do is get through the next 5 months until our trip.

Below are my personal thoughts on your schedule. By eliminating the things that may not bring you pleasure and including those that will, everything will fall in to place to help you decide. Have a great trip!

Sun: lunch somewhere $50 OOP CS
spa massage $150 only on Platinum
Victoria and Alberts $250 only on Platinum
Epcot cruise (I really am not counting the entire $300 towards this as i hear you can be put with other people. I have done it before and shared with people of my own choosing off this board so thinking maybe $50 a person for this) $100 only on Platinum - but can get reserved preferred viewing on Premium

Day 2 Breakfast: Boma or in room--depending on how late we sleep $50 OOP CS
Dolphins in Depth (Not really into this as we have swam with dolphins so many places--just thought a chance to do it that I likely would never pay for) $350 Skip
parasailing $135
Jiko $125 Do this as one of your 3 signature meals
I would love to do the Wayama Safari if allowed but I don't see that listed anywhere Use some of the money you save to pay for this?

Day 3 Breakfast in room $50 OOP CS
Coral Reef Lunch $60 Good use of LUNCH meal if you don't want to do HBD signature
Cirque 6pm (did this in Dec so not a necessity) $200 Always a good choice - the show is never the same, even though the entertainers are
Fultons 9pm $125 Good meal choice, we prefer Citrico's. Narccoossees, Cal Grill, Jiko, Artist's Point - all signature
Characters in Flight (not included anyway just want to do it) Again, use your 'saved' money for this


Day 4--check into Poly
Late breakfast at Akershus or CRT $100 Good breakfast choice, could do CRT for signature or 1900 PF since you are close
Aqua Tours 12:30--dd not so sure she wants to do this $280SKIP
Hoop De Review 7:15 $120 We have done this 2 x and it isn't really our favorite, but if you like it, this is a good opportunity to see it .
Carriage ride at Ft Wilderness 9:30 $45 Nice to do, may be harder to book depending on when you go.

Thanks for the great review of my plan 2ofus. I have until June 1 to decide what I want to do I believe. I gave IPO my list and I'm afraid I will be stuck with things Like Cirque tickets if I decide not to do it at all. I think everything else I can cancel. I am definitely set on Victoria and Alberts as that is my birthday. DD and I have wanted to go for several years, but I had a hard time justifying the cost. I could do like you said and do the Platinum plan on day 2 but I would need to switch my day 2 and day3 so cirque when be on my Platinum night but then Vic and Alberts isn't covered. I thought about canceling all together and paying out of pocket, dropping the Aqua Seas and The Dolphins but I didn't come out ahead. Decisions; decisions.

Water Activities

Question: The official website states that 30 minutes are added when you purchase a water activity. I was under the impression that all the water activities were free. Can someone tell me what the deal is?

They are all included. As a matter of fact, I have this confirmed with "Mike" at Sammy Duvall Watersport Center at Contemporary Resort. I made our full-day of water sport activities with Mike. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Did I tell you that we have 12 pp in our group??!! He basically blocked off 2 hours in the morning for our parasailings and another 2.5 hours after lunch for tubing, water ski and wakeboarding lessons. While some of us are on the ski boats(max. 6pp) he has reserved 4 units of "Personal Water Crafts (PWC) for the rest of the group.
Give Mike a call!! I got it done on my 180 days' mark.
