It depends - all up to the share leader. As few as 2-3 and as many as 10 sometimes. It won't really make much of a difference to you - except that everyone in your share can see your photos and vice versa. Many leaders take the extra effort to manually sort through the pics and split up the photos by family so when you get your CD, only your family's pics will be on it. That's what I will do.

Photopass+ shares are hard because you HAVE to take all pics within a 14 day window. On top of that, you are only given ONE master card which must be presented at meals and rides for your +pics to be added. So if you have a share, you must coordinate with the other members to pass the card around based on your itineraries and who needs the card on which day. When you have people in different parks and different resorts at different times, arranging the card hand-off at the right times is difficult.

It is made slightly easier that WDW officially allows you to return to the attraction within 48 hours with your ride numbers to add your photos to the card. Also, reports are that if you take a cellphone pic of your master card, you will be allowed to use that in place of the physical card. Because this info is new and not verified by enough people, I am reluctant to trust in it and have prepared to not be allowed to do it.

On the good side, Photopass+ shares can be done in conjunction with a regular photopass share. In my group, I have folks only doing a regular photopass (at which point a 4-6 week window is manageable) as well as those doing the photopass+ upgrade.

Hope this makes it a bit clearer

If you want to join a share, do it through the FB group as Photopass shares are not allowed on the Dis.

While we are on the subject of photopasses I have a few questions.

You can do the photopass thing but then decide not to get any of your photos right?
Also it says you can view and 'share' your photos for free, so you can put them on facebook right? or am I reading that wrong?

If the above are true I may do both my camera and the photopass thing then just share all the pics I like and then if I really like one or two get a print of those (i can always scan them later), but if I share them on facebook that's good enough for me.

I know even if you pre-order the regular photopass, there is a long window of time to cancel for a full refund...even after you have taken the pics. (No refunds if you pre-order Photopass+ though)

As for your "sharing" on FB suggestion...that could well work. It's new and honestly I didn't research it much other than take vague note of it as I wanted the CD - I use it for making photobooks of our trip.

Glad to see people making their way over to the facebook group but as chatty as we are I'll probably run my phone battery dead before 2pm every day checking all the notifications.

I'm glad I have something to keep my entertained while I'm home all weekend instead of going down the shore.
