I haven't done a character meal in years. I'm assuming there are not photopass photographers that come are with the characters to your table correct? The only place there is a photographer is with the character you meet when you come in right (ie Donald at Tusker House)?
I won't do a Disney trip without it. The one con I have is that I don't think they have enough photopass photographers. But here is a reason why I would never go without. I just don't have the skills to capture moments like this.
I LOVE PhotoPass. My daughter and I went 9/20-9/27 for a Mommy / Daughter trip. I bought the Photopass +. We ended up with over 800 pictures on our CD. Some of the pictures are just amazing. This is one of my favorites!
I have never bought the cd all these years but have purchased pictures from photopass. After looking at some of these pix I think I'm going for it next May!
We have been very happy with photo pass. You just have to make a conscious effort t stop at every photographer you see!
Get it! Worth every penny. Photos are high quality and really capture the moment!
Yes! And the effort to edit your pictures when you get home to get the most for your money! I like to get as many different boarders for each one that it looks good on.
We always preorder photopass before every trip. We usually end up with 300 to 600 pictures on our cd after editing so it's a no brainer for us. We did photopass + last trip and are planning to do it again. It's worth it if you are eating at the restaurants that are a part of the + . We are eating at 5 of the restaurants that have the photo packages included with the photopass+ so once again it will be worth it for us. Many of our favorite photos have come from our photopass.
We are thinking of getting the Photopass+ for our trip. I am little confused. If I pay for the Photopass+, do I also pay for the cd or does it come with it?
Hi, This thread is great as I am in the same situation and trying to persuade my hubby to get the photopass plus. So I just wanted to confirm some things I've seen on here and others that I've read elsewhere.
1. Can it definately be returned if it's not been opened?
2. Does it include a lanyard like the pin trading ones, so my hubby could use that for his pins rather than buying a pin trading lanyard (trying to use it as an arguement that it saves us a bit of money )
3. We are eating at, 1900 park fare, 'Ohana- breakfast and dinner, chef mickeys. Plus doing BBB basic package. Would all these pictures be included?, I read on one webpage that there is a table side photo purchase fee for restaurant pictures . and if yes are they all just digital copy or hard copy pictures?
4. Know some ride pics are included are these only one from each ride or as many times as you want and what do you need to do to add them to your pass.
5. Are there photographers at the water parks?
6. I've also been told that at some resorts there is a formal photo shoot you can get, does this cost extra and can you have pictures from that added to you photopass? Which resorts do this?
Think that's all my questions, lot's I know, sorry. Hope someone can confirm for me.
What you're paying for is to get all your pictures on a CD, which saves you money over buying each picture separately, so yes, the cost does include the CD.
1. I haven't heard about anyone trying to get a refund on the PhotoPass +, so I'm honestly not sure, especially since it does say on the pre-order site that all sales are final.
2. It does come with a lanyard, but I don't know if it's sturdy enough to support pins, however, the pin-trading lanyards aren't that expensive, so I don't know that I'd use that as argument for getting PhotoPass +.
3. Yes, all those pictures can be added to your CD for no charge. The + part of PhotoPass + is being able to get ride and dining photos added to your CD without having to pay for them separately.
4. You can add as many ride photos as you want. To get them added, just go to where they display the ride pictures, and write down the number of your picture, then go to the counter where you would normally pay to get the picture, but in this case you would just ask them to add the picture to your card.
5. The only place I've seen photographers at the water park is along the lazy river, but I haven't been to a water park in a long time.
6. I'm not sure if they do those anymore.
I think I will definitely get it, since it might be the only time my mom goes wiith us.
DH and I did not purchase any of the photos from ours during our September vacation. The reason, they just weren't that good. We looked fine, it was just the angles and backgrounds that didn't work. I can tell they were NOT professional photographers. This was the first year we had encountered such bad photography. We had chosen to take our small compact camera with us so we had a few decent ones from there, but we will definitely be taking our good one next year during our family vacation.
Have only used photopass sparingly. If I buy the + can my kids, who are old enough to go out on their own, get cards and then add all photos to one cd at the end? I'm guessing yes but where would you do that? Thanks
I must be weird....I have a hard time getting my family to stop for pictures, they hate the PP pic poses! in a week,I can get them to stop a few times,then it becomes pure torture....I would love it if they would cooperate!
Help me here. I pay 169.00 and get all the good pictures. Do I get the actual print pictures also at the rides ?? Also I need to print many pictures after I get home. 300 pics probaly cost another 75.00 ? Is it still worth it ?
Yes, this was us. Our boys were three, were often in their stroller, and honestly the pictures were nothing to write home about. I'm glad simply because it's rare to get all four of us in a picture, but as for it being worth 100+ dollars? Not so much.
Not only that, but I had a hard time even spotting photographers other than on Main Street in Disney World, and even when I did there was sometimes a line, and crowds, and, well, you get the idea. When you're trying to keep to some sort of ride schedule to peat the crowds in the morning, you really don't want to be stopping for 10-15min. on your walk from ride to ride.
I'm thinking that it would be worth it more for people with older kids who can actually take direction with a smile on their faces, etc..
Luckily I brought my big camera, my little P&S and my iPhone!
This pic brings tears to my eyes! Thanks for sharing, it is just too precious!
