Photopass Plus question

This may be a silly question but so when you go to a Character meet and greet, say Ariel in her grotto for example, is there a photographer at each character station in the parks that will take the professional photos and that's included in the over all price you paid for the PP+ ??

TIA

Most meet and greets do have PhotoPass photographers. They are included in what you get with PhotoPass+, however you don't need the plus to have meet and greet photos added. The plus is for adding ride and dining photos; if you're only interested in meet and greet photos, the regular PhotoPass CD is all you need.

Yes, the characters who do have PhotoPass Photographers with them at the meet and greets are included in both the PP and PP+. You just have to hand them your PP or PP+ card. They will swipe it after they take your photos.

As for the 'professional' part, I am not going to touch that. Some people, like me, have had great photos and were thrilled; others have not been happy.

Do the characters at MVMCP have photographers as well? My camera isn't too good at night.

The pictures are TOO cute!

I'm a huge supporter of PP+ as well. Going with just the two of us, it's great to have so many pictures with both of us in them. Most of the characters have PP photographers with them. The only ones I can think of that we met that didn't were Mary Poppins, the Fairy Godmother, and the Stepsisters.

If you do one character meal, the photo package pays for the extra cost for the "plus" option!

Thanks for the advice everyone! Awesome feedback

Now at meet and greets do the photographers snap away and get action shots also, say of the kids walking up to the character or chatting with the character, etc. or is it just the standard one pose and keep it moving??

Again thanks for all of this info!!

Some of my favorite pictures are of the characters hugging my kids before the posed on. I have one with mickey hugging ds and sully hugging dd to where you can barely see her.

Yes, I has some great photos of me hugging characters and talking to them while other photographers just snapped a photo of me posing with the character.

Okay good to know. So we could probably even ask them if they can snap away while coming up to our turn, if that's something we desire, since we would be paying for unlimited photos?


Aside this- I didn't think of looking into just the regular Photopass option. With paying that price for that option does that also include all of your photos that you can print once home like PP+ OR do you have to pick and choose and purchase them all separately??

Hope that made sense...

The regular PhotoPass CD is the same as the PhotoPass+ CD, except that with the plus you can have your ride and dining photos added without having to purchase them separately, plus you get a CD with stock photos with the plus.

Awesome thanks guys, with all of you advice I went ahead and purchased the photo pass plus.

My last question is- it stated that they are shipping something to me within 7-10 days. Is this my pp+ card and landyard? I was under the assumption I had to go pick up these things when I arrived in DW

I guess I should clarify that they are trained to do so.
