The Dolphin (aka the Fish) is such a beautiful resort. I loved touring it. I hope you have a great stay!

The best spot these days to find a share is on FB: http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/78167743594/ . That`s what I use to organize my share.

It takes a bit of trust - so feel out potential leaders. Talk and ask lots of questions. I had a fabulous experience in my last share and ended up spending half my trip with my leader because we really hit it off. I do always consider worst case scenarios just to determine if I`m willing to accpt the level of risk. When I first decided to try a share, I was nervous but at the end I figured the worst that could happen was I would be out $30. I wouldn`t have paid the crazy photo prices anyway.

When you have a card, you`ll magically see PP CM`s everywhere. For magic shots, you should ask for them. Some will say no, some will say yes. Not all are trained to do them. Also, if a photographer has a tripod, chances are - they CANNOT take magic shots. So we hunt down those without tripods.

I just love PP because you can now tell I`m part of the vacation too.

Thanks!
Can`t believe I didn`t even think of that - esp since I know your resort dates!

Lauren, I was worried in the beginning too. Photopass+ shares are really hard though - dates and itineraries really have to match up. And be prepared to spend some time working out logistics. Frankly, it`s challenging and quite time-consuming unlike the relative ease of a regular PP share. Still, I`m thrilled I managed to work it out for my share

I think we could swing that! haha! But even if we banked our points and went every other year, I would be okay with that. I think it is worth it just for the space- and I totally want to stay in the Treehouse Villas at some point!

The share I was considering is just one other family do still pricey but less ppl to have my families pics. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out. Not much time to get to know leaders, I have 2 weeks.
I've had a card before, still never saw many CM.

I'm interested in joining a photopass + share too - can anyone tell me more about it or what makes this new + so much more challenging?

The Stitch one is hilarious. Thanks for sharing!

Not sure what we're doing yet. Since I have a nice camera i will probably just have them use ours.

Hello Fellow August Disney Lovers!!

I am finally heading back to the world that i love. It's been about 4yrs since i've been so i'm really looking forward to this trip. Due to finances we had to take a break from going to Disney twice a year. Anyways, I can't wait and we will be at the ASMU from Aug 13-17th. Here is my park list:

Aug 13- DHS
Aug 14- Epcot
Aug 15- A.K.
Aug 16- Disney Quest/D.D
Aug 17- M.K.


Our ADR's:

Aug 13- 50's PTC 9:05pm
Aug 14- Cape May Cafe 7:45 pm
Aug 15- Ohana 9:40 pm
Aug 16- Chef Mickey's 8:40 am
Aug 17- Kona Cafe 10:40 am

We are celebrating my DD 12th Bday so I have a custom cake planned for her when we eat at Ohana's since Aug 15th is her Bday. I can't wait to see it. I will definetly post pics when we return. I'm considering ordering her a white chocolate minnie mouse with some balloons saying happy bday to be delivered to our room the day of. If I decide to do so i will definetly include pics of that as well!! Hope to see some of my fellow diser's at WDW in August!!!
