It is late so I am done after this. What does everyone think of purchasing the photopass(?) CD ? Does it include ride shots? How many magical shots is there? I know we will purchase ride shots. Worth it?

Photopass+ includes the ride (and certain dining) photos. It also includes BBB and PL photos. If you just do the regular Photopass, you would have to buy the ride photos separately. Magic shots are included in both, and there are lots of them available. just ask the photographer if they have any available. Not all of them have the ability to do them. Here is the preorder link for both Photopass options...

We have done the regular for years, but we will be doing the plus this time around. Can't wait!

River Country was cool water park - only Disney water park I've been to - alas, also extinct
I miss River Country too

great childhood memories.

I can't do it with Stitch. Just thinking about spitting makes me want to puke. Bummer, because Stitch is one of my favorite characters ever.

I didn't go to Disney a lot before moving to FL but when I was a child the thing I was fascinated by was 20,000 leagues under the sea... that sub going down was just amazing to me, I thought we were really going all the way down.

We're tossing the idea around. It's not an expense we calculated but there's time.

Usually we don't get photopass stuff; we just ask them to use our camera, which is not great but good enough.

But now with all the character meals, I'm tempted. Hey, maybe I'll even get in more than 1 or 2 shots!!! These character meals are like the icing on the cake for us and probably the thing we're most excited about because we never do them.

If they throw in ride photos, then that will tip me over the edge and I will do it. That would be awesome.

Okay, that sounds cool but I'm confused.

You pay for the PP+; photographers take your photo on that card (in front of landmarks, characters, some of the character meals, and you get some select ride photos).

And then you go home with your card/card# and you download your photos unlimited? Or do you get a CD included in that price or what? How does that work?

And do you know if it's good for MNSSHP during our stay? Or would those be separate?

Also curious about this-- we split up a lot in the parks. Does that mean only 1 of us can use the PP+ and the other can't, or can you get more than one card for the same family/account?

And what would happen if you lost the card mid-trip? Like lets say you lose it and have 5 more days to go... you have the # to go home with and look for photos, but does that mean you can't get anymore on your PP+ card because it's gone now? Or do they replace it, or give more than one and you can link it all to your acct like with regular PP card?

I know I ask a lot of questions... sorry. But anyone who can answer without wanting to throw me off the top of the Tower of Terror, you must have the patience of a saint.

You get a CD. It can be used for the MNSSHP. When you split up only one person will have the plus option. The other can get a regular photopass card and get pics taken, but only way to get ride photos on is to have them write down numbers of the photos when they get off the ride and go back later in the day with the plus card to have them added. You only get one PP+ card. If you take a photo of the back of it or write down the number somewhere, then you can recover your photos without the card. Not sure about them replacing a + card? I assume they would if you lost it.

Free Dining Sold out?

Is is possible that the general public free dining has sold out? We were online last night, looking specifically at PORiverside and the only options I was able to select were garden view and river view Royal rooms . . . had to stop as kids needed me and went back on this morning hoping to book. The only "special offer" I could find was for the current summer promotion for a room only up to mid August? Clicked on every "special offers" link I could find, and all of them showed only the current room only. could it be?!?!?!

Did I really miss the boat? I did not get the most recent pin, and would rather go in December, so hopefully THAT one will go public. I am really beginning to wonder I am afraid I might be getting priced out of bringing my family to Disney World. The first time we went it was less than 3,800 for an entire week, INCLUDING air fare...now I am lucky to come in under 5,000 before airfare. . . .those "good neighbor hotel" ads that keep popping up here on the DIS sure are looking better and better. . . $69 per night and walking distance to Downtown Disney? Onsite just can't compare anymore.

Something isn't right on their site. When I click special offers, it shows nothing but a phone number to call.

You should call them, I think their site is still acting up. I don't think they're sold out by a long shot.

Read the fine print when looking at some of those off site hotels. I know the Hilton charges something like $14 to park and another $20 dollars for resort fee....something along those lines. So that $69 can easily be double that once you tack on fees and taxes.

Room types may sell out. But there should be other rooms available. If a resort does sell out, try a different one. There will be rooms in each category (value, moderate, deluxe) available for some time. In years past, people were still booking free dining in July.

I also know the pin rooms are very limited as well. I priced a few out for myself and POR only had royal rooms and POFQ only had garden rooms.
