If you stop by Shutters the first day (or early in the cruise) I believe they have a way to tag the additional child to be on your CD. But don't expect all photos from the 3rd room - most likely just those with your child. It's done by facial recognition.

Enjoy your cruise!

We just have 2 many kids for one stateroom....LOL
I'd love to hear how this works out... Disney & big families don't always go together well. :s

Our experience on the March 16 Western was different than what others described.

We had friends also on our cruise in a stateroom no where near ours. They were linked to our dining.

When we would have photos done at the backgrounds/staircase/etc the CM would ask for our KTTW card. We would do US, then US with the other family, and then the other family.

They were also at our table for dinner. CM would ask someone for a KTTW card and my DH would hand over his.

On our CD were the Photos of us and the group together, but not the ones of just their family. But the dinner photos we had them all in our CD. They were not in their CD at all.

There were a few photos of their kids and my kids together that were not on our "file" so we went and asked to have those put on our CD, and it was.

Basically, if you want your whole groups photos, just have everyone in the photo or at least one person from each, or ask to have a particular photo moved to your set.

We were not trying to "take advantage" of anything. Our friends bought a 20 image release CD, we bought the full deal plus the prints. This was $400 for a 7 night cruise. Because we rarely get professional photos taken as a family, I consider it money well spent.

I agree...we use our cruise photos in our home...no blah school photos. So the cost isn't our issue either...I just don't want a hassle getting my kids on my CD since they are in rooms with me, in my DH room and in my sisters room... I guess I will just have to keep track daily what they have taken and check every night!!

The easiest way is to just give them your KTTW card when having the photos taken. They use facial recognition to do photos when they are not given the card, but the card will tell them which room the photo belongs under. Its not as big a deal as people make it out to be.

My tip would be do the photos AFTER dinner, we were late every single time we tried to go before.

Any photos taken with that KTTW card that do not have at least one person associated with the immediate family attached to that card (meaning parents and minor-age children) will be removed from the KTTW picture account by the facial recognition software by the end of the cruise.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to keep up with the pictures each night to be sure to get them all on your CD. Friends we cruised with had pictures put in or folder often during the week. Both our boys have short blonde hair so I think the photo recognition mixed them up. When we found these we had to take them to the desk and tell the CM which room to add them to since they ordered the CD. They then put the pictures in their folder. There were pictures they found not on the CD and some they didn't get prints of. They had to get the CMs to take care of both each night.
