Now I will be off to research that info.
I'm not sure of the height of your kids, but here are the restrictions to the attractions included in PP+ (ordered by minimum height):

Buzz Lightyear SRS: no height restriction (so I believe you can do at least this one!)
Splash Mtn: 40"
Dinosaur: 40"
Tower of Terror: 40""
Space Mtn: 44"
Expedition Everest: 44"
Rock n' Roller Coaster: 48"

We just pre-ordered our Photopass + for our upcoming trip. I think this is such a great price for everything we'll get because we are doing 4 of the character meals that you get print packages, and we LOVE rides (and ride photos), not to mntion the zillions of character greetings we always do, so we will definitely get our money's worth.

OMG - I am so excited!! We've never planned a trip so far out before, and now we're only a little more than a month away!! We've paid the balance on the trip (using "6 months interest free" on rewards card, so not technically paid off, but still...), bought our photopass + voucher, finished our touring plans, and have started getting our t-shirts for the trip (we get a Disney shirt for each child for each day of our trip).

Only a little more than a month to go before our longest Disney vacation ever - I can't wait!!

So far he hasn't got any info on when the pool work will begin.
I'm guessing you meant to post this on another thread since this doesn't have anything to do with PhotoPass +.

We were in Disney April 2012 and were there for the first full week that Photopass+ was out. Everywhere we went people and CMs asked us about it and how we were liking it. Our little version on Disney Celebrity, I guess. And it was fun! The photopass people were so incredible to us and took WAY more pictures than they did of my friends who were there just before us. Maybe it was because it started a convo with them and then once you get people talking they are so much more interested/invested in you... But whatever it was it made our trip so special!! And having all the pics at the end of all the rides and character meals was awesome. I felt it was VERY worth the $$.

We are booked to go back this April and I am totally getting it again. My question is, do you see a lot people walking around with the lanyards now? Does everyone get the + or is it just us DISers who are so into it?

I'm really sorry and call me lazy but I got 3 pages in and got more confused than before I started so I'll just post my queries. I apologise if these have been answered already.

I live in the uk (not that it makes a difference but still) I'm 20 and am taking a 14 day trip in oct/nov (doing both Halloween and Xmas parties) with my mum. Just the 2 of us. I also own a canon DSLR camera (similar to the pp at Disney) and will be taking it to the parks. We plan on doing a breakfast at park fair.

All that in account, is it worth is purchasing the pp+? For me the pictures are the best part of the trip to take home.

Also, if I pay the one off $$$ will I need to pay any more money to get my photos? or is everything included in that price (inc shipping) and will I be able to rip all the pics from this CD to my computer once I get home?

I'm so confused, dumbed down version please!!
(not new to the pp system just the buying them part)

I do not know about the shipping to the UK; however, I can tell you the rest.

For the $, you get a CD, which has a release form on it that allows you to print the photos, post them online and copy the CDs, so long as you are not doing o for commercial purposes.

With PhotoPass+, the only prints that are included are the character meals, otherwise, you would need to either have Disney print them (expensive) or print them yourself or use somewhere like Walmart, Target or other Photo Processing centers (not sure what they might be there) to print them.

Trying to decide whether to pay the extra or the photo pass plus or just do the regular one. Last year, when we dined at CRT and Akershus, we received a complimentary photo packet - at CRT it was pics with Cinderella and at Akershus, it was pics with Belle. Does Disney still do this - or has it changed with the introduction of photo pass plus?

I just returned from WDW and had a great time. While there we enjoyed the PhotoPass+ card. It was awesome and well worth the price. I have seen mentioned many places the concern that only one card is issued, and that even though you can use the regular PhotoPass cards in conjunction, only the red card can be used on rides and other special events. This is a problem, because if members of your group separate for some time, not everyone has the card. Well, early in our week, without even asking, a photographer shared some very important information. He said that if the people in your party take pictures of the card, with cellphones for example, the PhotoPass camera readers are able to read the code. This way groups can split up and still take advantage of the Photopass+ card.
Interesting...will have to remember that!!

Does anyone know if it takes longer to send it to the UK? Tia!

Well, technically, they weren't complimentary, they were included in the price of the meal. So, no, that hasn't changed.
