Woo! Im excited for January trip! I wonder what "limited" theme they're going to start off with! So exciting! (Ill be there for three weeks so HOPEFULLY that'll mean three different pixie dust experiences! )

I almost backed out of my january trip due to budget concerns...but my mother reassured me and declared I worry too much!

This will be an extremely budgeted trip, which is fine by me because ill be going all out when I return in March!

I've never done it, but from what I've read Photopass photo share works like this:

- Someone decides to buy a Photopass CD but thinks it is too expensive for a single family
- Proposes a group of people that are going around the same time to share that CD and split the costs
- As a Photopass CD doesn't have any limits of pictures (just of the time you have to see/edit them) and only needs the Photopass card number to be added to a single account, several people can get photos taken with their cards.
- The group manager adds the number for everyone's cards into his/her Photopass account
- All pictures are then chosen to go on the CD
- Manager receives the full CDs, copies them and sends a copy to each participant.

We'll also be there for 3 weeks (though will just enter parks on 2 of those weeks)!

It reminds me of a Year of a Million Dreams when anywhere, anytime someone could show up with special dream stuff for you like Mickey Ears or Dream Fastpasses (I'll never forget getting Dream Fastpasses as we were heading leaving the pre-show of ToT! )

Kennethsrib -- I hope that the stuff you have going on goes smoothly for you from now on.

DenaRox -- What part of Canada are you from? I live in Brampton, just outside of Toronto.
Yay!! So glad you figured it all out!

This si a good overview. The only things I would add are that you can go in and edit your photos -- zoom, crop, add Disney borders, b+w, etc to them. You do pay the organizer prior to seeing your photos (or lack thereof, if you don't get many) so you need to commit to stopping to get photos to make it worth it.)

Wow -- that is wonderful!! I love the Poly!

We looked into changing resorts but DH and I are really looking forward to the AoA. Since we normally stay on our DVC points, this trip is an exception and may be our only chance to stay at AoA. So we're staying with it. So excited!!

Love that we are all (nearly) in double digits!! Woo Hoo!!

My DH has been leaving me little notes each day since 100 Days to WDW. It's pretty cool! This is totally NOT like him so I think he is getting really excited, too (1st time to cruise, 1st time at AoA and 1st time at BLT with Lake View + 1st time for FLE)

thank you for the detailed description. I have purchased the photo pass + already, it was my present to myself to ensure that I am included in some pics instead of always being behind the camera lol. considering sharing my pass to help with the cost too. lol
