Hey all - We have a trip tentatively planned for next November. I hope/plan to use Photopass Plus. But the trip is not set in stone, particularly the exact dates.

My question is - when you order the voucher, do you a) need to provide specific trip dates at that time and b) does the voucher ever expire?

No, you don't have to provide dates but the voucher does expire so don't pre-purchase it until your dates are more firm to ensure you can use it.

My voucher that I received in May 2012 does not have an expiration date. Once you exchange the voucher for the PP+ card, then an expiration date comes into play ... the PP+ card expires in 14 days.

Why don't they activate it for the dates you are going to be there?) I have read different things about getting your dinner photo packages before activation, but what is working lately? Can anyone help me figure this out?
Like what's been said earlier, buy the Photo Package and save your receipt. You'll get reimbursed the next day when you pick up your PP+ card.

And to your question about a voucher and pre-activating it for strict dates ... some people bought this deal when it came out to lock in the current price. PP+ cost can increase 20-30% in a single year, so it can be a wise decision to buy before your dates are firm.

When I pre-purchased earlier this year, my voucher had an expiration date at the end of Dec. I did pre-purchase using a special offer at the time.

Nope, I'm not there. It seemed like they knew what they were doing so I thought maybe it was just me. Do you think it was a mistake then?

Anyone else tell me what happened to you when you went to redeem your voucher. Was I supposed to just get a lanyard, not a whole new case with CD like they sent in the mail?

Got mine yesterday (well checked the mail yesterday but it probably came on Sat) and I didnt notice an expiration date on mine either.

I do wish we could get our PP+ card before entering the park so we dont have to waste park time to get it.

You were supposed to get a plus card on a lanyard so you could get any dining photos (at certain locations) and ride photos (certain locations) as digital downloads onto your plus card and a free photo package for the dining locations.

The special offer was likely the difference maker. What was the special offer?

I'm thinking the same thing. It sounds like the majority of people did not have an expiration date.

It just makes sense that the price will only go up (it's so wonderfully low right now, especially compared to WDW). So I am tempted to pull the trigger even without dates in place.

Thanks, all, for the responses.

No, you have to receive the voucher by mail, sorry!

Yes it was a mistake. Was your CM an older guy at the Disneyland photo shop? The CM that had many problems and confusions with my redemption was, and luckily there was another CM sort of shadowing him to help him. As soon as that guy saw my voucher he got a card and lanyard and was holding on to it, while sending me to the other CM for the "business".

The guy helping me was having problems understanding, wanted to charge me (didn't understand I had prepaid), wanted to get a CD out, etc. The shadowing guy helped him out and ultimately almost took over. It seemed that this had all happened before, from the way they interacted, and I wouldn't be surprised if the CM that was trying to help me still didn't get it.

Your CM was treating it like you hadn't prepaid; if you just went in and paid full price at the parks, that is when you would get the CD with the second voucher, etc. You should have just gotten the lanyard and PP+ card.
