WONDERFUL news!!!!

I know that Disney was giving the families that stayed at GKTW free Photopasss CDs(how do you pluralize Photopass????). I'm not sure if they still do? How it works is you get a card (you can just ask the Photopass Photographers for one), like a credit card and there are Photopass Photographers stationed all around Disney. You walk up to them and ask them to take your picture, then hand them your card. After they take your pictures, they scan your card. You can then make an account online (at Disneyphotopass.com ) and you put the card number into the account and you can view all your pictures. With the CD, you will get all the pictures that the Photopass photographers take. You can also deocrate them online. The kids always like doing that. Make sure you take a picture of write down the Photopass number, incase you lose it. You can have more than one Photopass card too, just input all the card numbers you have on your account. So, if you happen to misplace the card you were using or some of your group splits up and they don't have one, just ask the Photographer for another one.

Hope that clears it up instead of making it more confusing!

AAA has a nice booklet you can get; you can get one at their office wherever you live. It's about 24 pages or so. If you can go to an Orlando tourist office and pick up brochures there.

Get postcards and try to get ones that are personal--rides or shows that you have done there. Get extra fast passes that you don't use or keep those you don't end up using. You will get a packet at check in and there will be items there that you can use.

I would absolutely do the Epcot passport. A cast member from each country will write something in their language and stamp your book. The Creative board here has free passports you can do and print at home. You can buy a Disney passport at Epcot if you want the official one.

The Creative Board has many items you can print for your scrapbook. Some of the creative geniuses on that board will even personalize items for you.

Fastpasses, your actual passes after your done with the trip. You could maybe use part of a Button if you get one?

You have to hand over your fastpasses when you use them.

I agree with the Epcot Passport. We have had 5 different teenaged foreign exchange students. Even they liked the Passports.

Some shops at WDW have scrapbooking supplies. I would not neccessarily get a whole scrapbook, but you can find some special stickers and items that show things like characters and icons for different attractions.
You can also make your own stickers by finding pictures on the Internet or taking your own pictures and then printing them on sticker paper.

You could also ask for menus at full service places you eat. The server normally collects them when taking your order, but would most likely let you keep them if you explain the reason you are collecting them.

Collect a bunch of maps from each park. That way, you can cut them up to scrapbook with them.

Here is another update everyone is doing great so that is good news
For the last couple of days i have been talking to amanda and she is our resident picture taker so i asked her what kind of pictures and how many does she think she will take on our trip. So she replies hundreds lol.
Then she said she wanted a scrapbook for each park.

I have been on the war path in every store trying to find disney items for scrapbooking it has been rough but i found a couple of things some stickers,some papers but they didn't have a large selection. I found a princess scrapbook and 3 picture frames. Not bad for quebec lol.

Well thats my news for today see you soon

Hello!

I found your report!


Yes - GKTW, as far as I know, is still giving a free Photopass to every wish family. I believe they give you a card - so definitely write down the number like teresajoy suggested. And if you lose that one, don't worry - you can get a new card every single day of your trip - but you need to write down all of the numbers.

I think it is a good idea, especially if your family ever splits up to do different rides, etc - so give each adult in your group a Photopass card so that they can capture any moments that happen while you are not with the rest of your group. We had an "issue" with this on Lauren's trip - where Lauren's Mom didn't realize we had pre-paid for a Photopass (Wish families could pre-buy them back in 2008) and we missed all the pics from her meal at Cinderella's Royal Table.

I actually take pictures of my Photopass cards so that I can reference that in case I lose the card AND where I wrote it down. Not that I would ever do that....


The only other thing I was thinking is that you shouldn't need any Fast Passes - your Wish button and Wish Trip GAC should be enough to get you through the lines fairly quickly (usually)...
