Preordering Photo Pass Plus From Australia?

Is this possible and have any of you had experience doing this?

I ordered mine last night! I will let you know when it arrives, but others on the boards will probably be able to tell you more

I ordered mine a few months ago for our upcoming trip in Nov/Dec. From memory it took about a week and a half to arrive.

I ordered mine a few months ago and am using it right now!!! Totally worth the money, there are photographers everywhere to take Pictures with characters IRS at certain spots around the park. W also have got pictures from Ariels grotto and Goofys kitchen and ride pictures from splash, space, and a few others I can't think of off hand, paid for itself and when they see you have a plus card they go nuts with the pics!

I ordered one last month and it only took 8 days to get to us in New Zealand. Came by courier too. Can't wait to use it in January

When you go on the rides, how does it work using the Photoplus card???? Do you give it to them after the ride to scan?

I'm not sure whether this is a good purchase for us or not so I apologise for the questions.

After you ve been on the ride, you go down look at your picture and then go to where they sell them and they scan your card and it'll be waiting on your account when you log in. With the character dining they scan your card, but you also get the actual print out in a nice folder! We have had Soooo many pictures with it. Today alone we had family pictures in front of the Castle, family picure with Mickey mouse and the girsl with Rapunzle and Flynn rider. Not just one pic either 3-4 each time!

I ordered ours but it got lost and after a month I emailed them and called UPS, it was found within 4 days and in my hot little hands.
I think it's worth it, but we go next week.

I am definitely wanting to get both the PP+ when I got to WDW AND the PP+ when I go to DLR but wanted to know if it was possible to get them sent in Australia. Thanks for all the answers

Okay so is this Photopass Plus really just the new photo pass with ride shots and character dining added?

We are only character dining at CRT on their list and since we are the "fraidy" family we will likely only do 1 or 2 of the rides they list.

Does anyone know what the just plain Photopass purchase options are?

There is a discount for ordering the regular photo pass before hand too - http://www.disneyphotopass.com/previsitoffer.aspx

Thanks Dabecs.

ExcitedSam - do you think you are getting more photos and more attention because you are Photopass Plus?????

Pretty pleased with the service from Disney. I preordered mine Sunday 1pm (aus time) 12 hours later Disney has already shipped it. I wasn't expecting it to be shipped on a weekend especially not at 9am (us time).

It's up to fed ex now (I'm assuming that is who it will be sent via). So pleased, as we are cutting it pretty fine with only 3 weeks exactly to go.

Photopass plus seems like a great deal with the ride photos included. We only have one character dining experience booked, but I'm sure for families this would add huge value as well.
