    Im thinking about purchasing one of those photopass + before we leave but im a bit confused. I think it costs $149 but im not sure what im paying for - I know its unlimited pictures and some ride pictures and pictures around of the parks but does it include prints?
    I know you can have your picture taken with using the disney photographers for free but the ride pictures cost extra.
    Is it worth the money?

    I've NEVER been clear on this. Never quite known how much and what is free exactly

    Hope someone can clarify for us

    well this is what you get ..


    Unlimited PhotoPass photos in your account
    The ability to customize your photos with fun Disney borders
    Magic Shot photos
    Photos from select dining locations
    Photos from select attractions
    Photos from other Disney experiences
    Your Disney PhotoPass+ card for Photographers to recognize

    the Disney site doesn't state which select dining and attractions that are included nor what the other disney experiences are. I also believe there is a time limit on it of 14 days

    There are 2 types of Photopass CD now, the original which is $119.95 if you pre-pay and Photopass + which is $149.00 which you also have to pre-pay.

    The difference between the two is that the Photopass CD includes unlimited PhotoPass photos, you can customize your photos with Disney borders and also Magic Shot photos. The card is good for the length of your stay.

    The Photopass + includes unlimited Photopass Photos, you can customize your photos with Disney borders, Magic Shot photos and a Lanyard. It also includes photos from select dining locations, select attractions and from other Disney experiences. The card is only valid for 14 days.

    To give you an idea, these are the attractions etc that you can add the other photos from:

    Attractions

    Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest, and Dinosaur.

    Dining

    1900 Park Fare, 'Ohana (breakfast only), Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Chef Mickey’s, Cinderella’s Royal Table, Tusker House (breakfast only), Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue, and Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.

    You will also have a red lanyard which will let the Photopass Photographers know that you have pre-paid, so there is a chance that they will spend longer with you if there is no line

    The photographers are available in all the parks and at DTD.

    Thank you :)
    Im guessing the value is with the ride photos and the fact you get the pictures on a cd plus the general park photos as well.
    Hmmmm decisions decisions

    I think it works out that if you buy more than 3 ride photos, you are better off with the Photopass + so if you plan on riding the majority of the rides listed then if it was me I would buy the Photopass + especially if you have any of the character meals included as well :)

    Did you know that you can go to DTD and have your photos taken in the area that they use for the BBB photos. It is a formal type of photo, with a proper portrait background, not a themed one. You might have to wait if there are lots of little princesses though as they will get priority :)

    Ah thank you wendy. Looking at the ride list we will def be going on tot, buzz and splash mountain, and possibly space mountain and everest. So looks like it will be worth the money.
    Shame we wont be going to those restaurants though, they should have garden grill on there lol

    hmmm interesting! we do all the dinner shows but always find the photo prices a bit silly. I guess if we bought a $149 for one trip though and got photos included it may be worth it

    The 14 day limit is a bit of a pain for those of us going for longer than that, as we are. I got in touch with the photo pass people and they said if I were to go to see the photo pass manager at MK they sometimes extend it, but that is at their discression.

    Well that's worth knowing Vikki, my Dad always said "it doesn't hurt to ask, if they say no, you haven't lost anything" I think 14 days is too short a time, like you say a lot of people from the UK go for longer and it means that they lose out on the offer really.

    We don't tend to go on many rides so it doesn't pay for us.
