    Hi!

    We'll be going to WDW from 2/14-2/21/09. I'm looking for people who are going around the same time, and are interested in participating in sharing a Photo Pass. The photo pass will consist of Photopass CDs in jewel cases, and shipping.

    I read other posts, and these directions looked good to me, so I "borrowed" them (as the PP had "borrowed" them from someone else, I figured it would be okay. :rotfl2: )

    The Group Administrator will pre-order the CD so that it will cost $99.00. The Group Administrator will try to work with everyone as best as he/she can, but keep in mind they're only human. The Group Administrator will burn the CDs and ship them out as well.

    Once the groups are finalized, The Group Administrator will ask that everyone in that group to pay via paypal (Price plus paypal fee) The price will include shipping as well (USPS Media Mail Estimate of $2.13). The Group Administrator will of course get your "confirmed" shipping address via paypal . The Group Administrator will let everyone know the price up front so that there are no "surprises" If the group is small enough and it won't take much time, The Group Administrator can try to separate the photos when they burn them to the CDs (No Promises).

    Once The Group Administrator gets your information they will post your name on the board. After The Group Administrator figures out the price they will edit the post with the price and PM everyone. Once The Group Administrator has received the money they will post "Confirmed" by your name and PM you the Photopass account information.

    We are looking to have at least 6 people join. In order to expedite the process, and to keep from having the share become unwieldy, there may be multiple share groups. Each group will have its own Administrator. Although I will oversee this Share, each Administrator will be responsible for his/her group.

    Here is how a photopass share works: (Copied from multiple posts)

    1) Get a photopass card from a photopass photographer when they take your pictures in the parks. Have fun and have lots of photopass photographers take your picture. Each photographer will scan your photopass card to add photos to your photopass card id number.

    2) When you get home, DO NOT create your own Photopass Account on the Disney Photopass website, you will use a photopass account that has already been created. **Please do NOT create your own account! If you do, you will not be included in the group account that I set up.** You will receive an E-mail from me with the account information and the dates that will apply for our group.

    3) All the people in your group will add their photopass card IDs to this same account (Username & Password provided upon receipt of funds) on the Disney Photopass website. You can edit your photos there (add borders, crop, etc) and then once everyone in the group has added their photos and edited their pictures, The Group Administrator will order the CD of pictures that cost $125 plus tax and shipping. ($99 on sale preorder right now) All the members split the cost evenly.

    *Important*Again, make sure you add your photos to the GROUP’S account. If you create your own account, Disney will not allow you to add your pictures to the group’s account. You will be responsible for the total cost for "YOUR" new account. The cost of the CD - $125.00.

    4) Everyone's pictures will be on this CD. The Group Administrator will order and will make copies for all other people in the group and mail them their copies. You can then take this CD to any photo place and get your photos developed as you wish because Disney sends a copyright release with the CD.

    5) The cost will decrease with more members in the group.

    6) There is NO LIMIT to how many pictures you can take. If a group has enough pictures to fill more than one CD, Disney will send as many additional CD's as it takes at no extra charge.

    7) Sharing a CD means that strangers (the people within the group) will have a copy of your trip photos. Some people may not be comfortable with that.

    IMPORTANT: Photopass is very strict about their time limits. We will have 30 days from the first entry of a photopass card to order the CD. PLEASE follow my dates as stated in any upcoming communications. You would not want to be the person who enters too early thus creating a problem for those traveling later in the month. We need to be considerate of each other for this to run smoothly. Thanks again for joining, and may your trip and pictures be magical.

    Great Website for information on Photopass http://stitchkingdom.com/photopass/

    **Please keep in mind that Uploaded pictures will NOT be included in the CDs**

    jenny08 - you're in!

    mcm_momma - yes, the share is definitely on. I didn't want to close it too soon, but we have a enough to do the share. I don't really want to go above 7-8 people in the share group... I think it gets to be too many pictures.

    Any thoughts???

    FYI - Smidgen21 has had to drop out of the Photo Share... somehow, she has decided that giving birth takes precedence over a trip to WDW!:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    Congrats, and best of luck Shawn!! :wizard:

    Congrats, Smidgen21!!!

    HookdonWDW-Thanks for your response...this will be my first share, so I'm new to how it all works.

    I defer to your judgement about the number of players in the share. :) I just needed to know if we were a go, so that I could stop looking for a share to join.

    Hey, Thinking of joining. We are going Feb 11-19. A little apprehensive as I have never done this. Sounds ideal though.

    The shares are great. This will be my 3rd one. They save so much money and everyone gets beautiful pics.
