We just got back from our Twincess granddaughters first trip to Disney World. Since this was going to be a special vacation, I ordered Disney’s PhotoPass+.
If you’ve been to Disney World, no doubt you’ve seen photographers throughout the parks who take your photo at prime locations as well as at the character meet and greets. Then there are the attractions where your photo is taken as well as the character meals which offer a souvenir photo package. With the PhotoPass+, every single picture is included.
All of the photos will be accessible to you online and, at the character meals, you’re given the initial group shot they take prior to dining. At the end of our vacation, we had 4 souvenir folders of photos to take with us as well as 122 photos on the PhotoPass.
Once you’re online, you can have some fun with the pictures. There are borders, character autographs, different colorations, etc. that you can add. I put my daughter-in-law in charge and, since each addition creates a new photo as well as keeping the original image, we now have over 200 photos on our CD. It also includes a ton of stock images that you can add to your memories.
Even for a proud Grandma, that’s a lot of pictures. Since the PhotoPass+ includes a release that allows you to get them printed anywhere, I’ll be choosing my favorites to display.
The best part, by ordering ahead of time it was $149 instead of the $199.95 it would cost had we waited until we arrived. (You have to order it a minimum of 2 weeks prior to arrival.) It’s only $30 more than the regular PhotoPass CD.
While at first glance it may seem $$$, between what the out of pocket cost at just the character meals and attractions would have been, it’s a bargain. Only last year I paid around $20 for just two 4×6 photos of one pose.
Another bonus is that everyone is in the picture!! No one has to be behind the camera. That was our family joke for years. I was never in a photo and my husband was never in the videos.
There isn’t a souvenir that’s better than a picture that captures each amazing moment. Just ask your Travel On A Dream agent to order the PhotoPass+ and you’ll be on your way.
