I just wanted to add that for families that only want ride photos and don't care about meal or other photopass photos, you can purchase Attractions+. It is available for purchase at the park only (no pre-purchase) and costs $44.95. So, for the price of 3 ride photos, you can get all of them.

Last time I was at Chef Mickeys they didn't take your picture, the characters came around to your table and you had to take the pictures, what have they changed?

When we have gone, you check in, then get in line to have your picture taken with the Mickey statue, then you are seated. There are no photographers in the restaurant. They bring your photo package to your table while you are eating. If you don't have pp+, you decide whether or not you want to purchase it. If you have pp+ they just give it to you.

If you don't want the photo, you can also bypass the line to be seated, same at Tusker House. We haven't had PP+ before, but would probably do these when we do. With the two options coming closer in price, and our kids doing more rides, the plus makes a lot more sense.

This is good advice, we hadn't consider this before. My wife is very friendly and chatty, so most of our photo pass cm experiences are good, but there are some that just won't click that many pictures at all. Not sure this will help those, but we'll have to remember to give it a shot.

You really must have missed it, because they've been doing this for many years. It's not a picture with Mickey, just with a big plate. But usually the host directs you right to that line after you check in, and after that, you sit and wait for your table.

Regardless of the picture or lack of, what all does the Chef Mickey dinner entail? Do you see Mickey and other characters? I donít mind taking my own pictures, but if Iím traveling to the Contemporary I hope itís worth it.
TIA

Yes, Donald too. There are 5 characters dressed like chefs.

Here is one of our pics:

Your suppose to get print ( for the ones you take pic before meal) & then you need to tell them you'd also like it on CD..

In the past, our photo or receipt had a number on it, and you just added that to our PP account online (just like if it was a PP card number) and then those photos were added to your account.

My understanding is that you can let them know when they bring the hard copy pic that you want the digital copy as well..
