    I tried to search for this, but didn't come up with it! So, are there packages I can get? How much is an individual shot? Can I pre-pay for a package? (I seem to remember reading a trip report somewhere where the person had a certain number of pictures they could buy which led me to think there was a package.) Or, do I need to pay on board?

    Thanks!

    On good tip to keep in mind that you can always upgrade/downgrade a package. If you buy pics individually and then later see you had enough for a package, they will not let you transfer your individual purchases into a package. So it's really best to buy a package, and if you don't use all the pics in the package, you can have them "downgrade" your purchase.

    Awesome! Thanks. Can I purchase this ahead of time? I'd like to have all of these kinds of things done before I board so that I can spend as much time having fun as possible!

    You are welcome! You won't be able to purchase in advance, but you won't notice any more time involved with you making the initial purchase from any subsequent purchases. Each time you go to get pictures, you have to go to the Shutters counter.

    You can also swap out pictures in your package...so if you find a better picture later on, you can trade it out with one you are willing to part with.

    Or you can have too many pics, even for the biggest package, and need to buy 1 more 8x10 before you go home :rolleyes1 .

    Somewhere I read that the posed pics with characters and backdrops were not included in the packages. Is that correct?

    Nope, all pictures are included, this information is incorrect.

    Nope- all pictures taken by the photographers are included. You'll have character meets, posed characters, posed family portraits, beach portraits- just all kinds! We have small kids and took advantage of most of the opportunities and I would say we had probably 50 or so pictures to choose from. I just weeded out the bad ones (closed eyes, no smile, etc) first and started narrowing it down from there.

    It can get busy in Shutters right before dinner time though. If you wait until that particular dinner has started, it clears out some. I also went while DH and DS headed to one of the shows and got it taken care of and only missed 5 min of the show- Shutters was empty.
