5) Not just the one person with the card.

EXAMPLE: A group of 100 people each can get a card and be on the same PP+ plan.
Are you sure everyone can get the + stuff? We have 4 rooms and 14 people. It would be great if that were true. We will be together most of the time but not always.

Boy, I was really wrong with my ''it might only be a name change'' haha!

This sound like a great update for Photopass!!!

My Mickey Mail is due to ship in the next two weeks, wonder if I will get new stuff or old stuff?

The more I think about not having to carry the card and run back and forth if we are not on the same rides, the more I am loving this!

If you ordered PP+ on the pre purchase link they would have already sent you the voucher ahead of time. I'm a bit unclear whether this MM+ extra is going to be for PP+, for just regular PP or for all guests/onsite guests.

A side note on having PP added to your magic band rather than using the card, I'd personally not be rushing to do that just yet if the card is still an option. Several folk who have had their pics added by scanning the band instead of the card have reported photos 'gone for good' and mixed up pics from other parties on their account. It sounds like there are still glitches with the PP system functioning on the MB's. I have not had personal experience of this and am only relaying reports from the boards, so take it as you will, but read up and see how you feel about it first

Have a great trip

Our group of 9 in 3 different rooms just returned this week. We had PP+ and Magic Bands and used the MAgic Bands for photopass instead of photopass cards. We had to use the PP+ card for ride photos but all other photos but 2 were linked using one of the many magic bands. We got a card from one photographer whose Magic Band scanner was not working. All of our photos are accessible through MDE's Photopass link which sounds like it will change to Magic Memories. There is one set of 3 photos that was taken on the bridge in EPCOT going into France missing. I have a trace on it. Everyone in the group is linked into my reservation either directly or as a "friend". Most of the photos showed up in the evening they were taken. I entered the PP+ card id into my MDE photopass at the end of the first day. Once I did the ride photos from that day showed up. One oddity, I needed to enter the number a second time because photos taken after the first day didn't show up until I did. When we returned home I added boarders to many of the photos and could download the ride photos. I had to "order" the CD as a download and enter the promotion code from the PP pre-order to download all of the photos. All in all it worked pretty well. It will be great if the PP+ ride card is linked to Magic Bands.

Oh, I had the PP+ attached to my package, so I have not received anything yet. It is either going to come with my Mickey Mail or be waiting for me at check-in.

As for the lost photos, I keep hoping that will be fixed in five weeks. I have had problems in the past (used a really old card that would not scan), so I am sure DH will insist on back-up media.

I forgot you could now attach it to your package - that explains it. I didn't mean to play the scaremonger. Just wanted to make sure you made an informed choice. I think everyone is hoping they sort out as many of the issues as possible asap! It can only bet better

No problem - I appreciate you looking out for me! I did not know I could attach it until I called to change something and the CM offered to do it.

And yep, improving is the only option.

We were there last week. We used the card at the recommendation of the cm who gave it to us who said they were still having some glitches with the bands. Didn't help. I've had a group of lost photos here and there, but this time I had at least 6 groups of lost photos, and also had photos of 5 other families. It is a mess. We've used photopass every year for the last 6 years and I've never had so many issues.

Are there any rumours that the price will increase with the changes? I was going to wait to decide if we should purchase PP+ this year, but maybe I should order it sooner.
