Question Should we purchase photos package prior to cruise

Looking into purchasing picture package prior to sailing is it worth it. This is our first Disney cruise and going with our 4 year old son. Do they have one that will also combine my disney trip prior to cruise.

No you can't combine WDW and cruise pics. The cruise pics are an outside company. We planned on purchasing the photo CD and decided we would see how many pics we got the first few days. You can view your pics all cruise long. We ended up getting the CD and probably had close to 100 pics so it was worth it to us.

Is there an advantage to buying them in advance? We're doing 7 days on the Fantasy. To buy all the pictures on a disk in advance it is $349.95, does it cost more if you do it on the cruise?

I do not think there is an advantage of purchasing your photos in advance. I usually wait until towards the end of my cruise to compare my own photos with those taken by Shutters. Sometimes I need to just purchase four or five photos but other times I need to purchase the CD.

This was kind of my plan also. I had seen people toss the price around of $399, but I'm now assuming that is for the disk and for the prints. If there is no advance discount then I see no reason to advance purchase.

If you have the extra photos taken that are more traditional family photo type photography and not just the character or dining shots, are they also on the disk? Does this other photography cost extra, is it a separate purchase?

It is the same cost onboard. $350 for the disc and $50 for all printed pictures.

If you set up a special session (sitting) with the Shutters photographers, yes, it costs extra and no, it's not included on the CD.

If you have your picture taken (family picture) at one of the pre-set locations (generally on formal nights), those are included in the CD at no additional cost.
