What photo products have you purchased from Disneys Photopass website?

I had preordered the photopass plus, so I just finished editing my pics to order the cd, but of course I had to peak at the other products they offer and now my cart has almost $200 worth of other stuff in there.

Anyone order their mugs, ornaments, magnets or photo panels? How's the quality?

What have you ordered from them? And did you love it??

I have a mug from a 2009 trip we took for our 25th anniversary. It's my favorite mug so it's been through the dishwasher many, many times and still looks new.

Also at that time I think I got some luggage tags and maybe some keychains, but they were gifts so I don't know how well they held up.

We bought some luggage tags in the past, they were pretty nice.

We've ordered the photobook a couple of times and really like them but they sure do add up.

Those who have ordered the photo books....are they superior to say a Shutterfly photo book? Not sure if I should order one?

So far I am getting:

the cd (preordered, so that's paid for)
2 mugs (one will be a Xmas present for my father)
3 ornaments (one will be a Xmas present for my mom)
2 photo display thingies
1 magnet

This is adding up fast, but it was our honeymoon/my sons first trip so I figured I'm allowed to spend a lot on this stuff! :-)

I ordered a photo book, I was very pleased with, mine appears to be better quality than regular books I order with a good choice of mickey theming plus professional WDW photo access as well as photo pass shots plus the option to upload and include your own photos. I would do it again !

I've ordered quite a few diffeent items from Photopass over the years and for the most park I am happy with all of them.

I've ordered photobooks..Just got mine from my trip in Aug. and I really like it. I think the editing features are much better this year than when did one a few years back.

I ordered 2 ceramic coffee mugs this year and really like the quality of the pictures and mugs.

My every year favorite is the photo calendar. I think it's a great way to get a keepsake of your Photpass photos without having to spend as much as it would cost to make a book or get prints. I have calendars for the past 5 years and love to look at them during the year and them keep as keepsakes. I also make photo calendars as gifts for my parents (a version with them and my son - from photos I upload).

I ordered ornaments a few years back and they are my least favorite. The photo prints small in my opinion and they are not as nice as other products.

I got the photo disc 2 years back when we had ALOT of photpass photos taken..I think it's only worth the money if you have alot of shots that you like.

I did Christmas cards a few yearsback...they're OK and if you have a coupon code or something then the price isn't bad. But unless you have the PERFECT disney picture to go with them I find there are more design choices and better price deals on other sites.

I did some mousepads and they came out very nice. I find some of the products to be nice gifts for grandparents, etc.

Some of the items do seem a bit expensive, but so far in my experiecne the quality is good. As I said before, I think the best value and product is the Photo Calendar.

I did a photobook for my Mom after her first visit. The quality was amazing.

I also got a calendar after every visit for the next year, but they don't have those anymore. That was my favorite souvenir.

I bought a mouse pad and it really did not hold up well. The photo got faded and dark looking over time.

I made and ordered a photo book after our last trip in February and I was very impressed! The company that makes the Disney photo book is Jostens. The paper is thick and the photos are bright and crisp. I would say the quality is slightly better than what I have gotten from Shutterfly. Despite the steep pricetag, I ended up making our photo book with Disney because I really liked their Disney specific backgrounds and clip art. So overall I was very happy with the book and plan on doing others for our future trips!
