Photopass CD and Photopass Plus

Hi Guys,

travelling in october got a question... never used photopass cd before as never really thought of buying many pictures however as this is our honeymoon trip i thought we would be having alot more piccys done with the photopass photographers so the cd will be worth the money.

but my questions are:-

do you need to preorder this? ive heard people preordering it, will their be plenty in the park to obtain one?

do i buy the cd on the first day or once i have collected all the pics throughout the stay?

if you have any links to more info on the photopass cd that would be amazing as im prettry in the dark about it.

does the photopass cd include all pics you have taken by photopass CM i know it excludes ride photos and dining meals pictures so im contemplating paying for the plus to make sure i can get everything

any info would be great, thanks guys

if you have any links to more info on the photopass cd that would be amazing as im prettry in the dark about it.

the advantage of pre-order is a discount. However, I"m not sure there is still a discount on the PhotoPass Plus. I've bought the photopass several times...this year I pre-ordered the photopass plus, just because of the ride photos and restaurants....it will actually save us money.

There is still the Plus Pre order discount, as well as the regular PP Pre order discount.

Is there such a thing as ordering too soon?

I am thinking of getting the photo pass + for my trip in late February 2013. Is it too soon to preorder? Does the voucher have an expiration date?

I wish I had known to pre-order-it is much pricier after and if you take lots of photos like we did you will want the whole CD. Each monday though the photopass site does post new discounts. I am hoping that this coming Monday they post another $15 off photopass CD. I saw it when I first got home and didn't realize the discounts on the site change weekly (each monday morning (I just called) they post new discounts)

As far as I know, there is no expiration. When we got ours for our August trip, we could have used it for our December trip.

Also, to the OP, if you're thinking of getting it preorder it. You'll save money and you won't regret having all those pics.

I am planning on getting photopass+ for my next trip but was kinda bummed hat you only get 1 card. I found this tip on thmouseforless....has anyone tried this or heard of it working?

"Take a picture of your PhotoPass+ number with your phone. If you lose your card, Disney will still able to scan the number right off your phone! If your party has multiple phones, keep a scan of the card on each phone as PhotoPass readers can read these scans. If your party splits up, each person with a phone will have and can use the PhotoPass+ card individually. It's like having more than one card to use for your entire party!"

A PP cast member posted here and said that was not to be done. It was a thread citing that same Mouse forLess item. Some people argued and said the PP people (on the phone I think) told them it was ok. So I don't know the answer, but the photographer that posted here was quite adamant about it not being allowed from what I recall.

Thanks. I must have missed that post. I thought there ws a good chance it was a no-no. You wouldn't want it too easy to share accounts.
