    Excuse me whilst I rant things don't make me mad very often but photopass sharing really annoys me. I know that people photopass share, ok if it is two families that are there together I can see the point, but honestly there is a group on another site that has 14 people sharing one photopass in July/August!

    It's people like this that are going to ruin this for everyone else, I am fully expecting Disney to go down the route of the photopass+ so that only one card can be used per account, which will cause problems for families that split up at the parks. Also, if there is a time limit on them people like us that go for 3 weeks or so are going to completely lose out.

    What do you think about it, do you think it's wrong, or don't you see anything wrong with it I'd just be interested to see what others think, or if it is just me









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......

    It's been happening for years. I've shared a photo pass on several occasions. I actually participated on a large share with strangers back when it was first introduced. I have no guilt about it.

    Do you mean many families sharing one card?

    Yes Vikki, 14 families. I think it's disgusting

    I think its wrong for that many people to share it.
    We'll be sharing ours with my brother and his family but they are going to 1 disney park so not worth buying a photo pass.

    You are different Sue, its family. I think the photo pass is good value but I guess there are always the ones that want something for very little or nothing at all

    It's fraud/theft and absolutely don't agree with it.

    From a personal point of view, people who abuse schemes like this end up costing us all money. Disney won't lose out, they'll work out how much it's costing them, how much they charged and will raise their charges accordingly. That's another problem quite apart from the moral one, it's such a short sighted thing to do because we all end up paying more in the end.

    Whether we work producing a "thing" or providing a service, we wouldn't want someone to scam us by taking 14 times what they've paid for so it boggles my mind why people would try it on like that. If the $99 or whatever it was is too much in their opinion then they should a) not buy it b) tell disney why.

    I *CAN* see the joint holiday thing though where the families are always together. The right thing to do would still be to buy two cards but every time would need two swipes and so on so I get why those folks do it.

    I don't think it's stealing. There are typically only 2 people in my vacation party. I have purchased a photo pass when it was 5 of my family together. But, every other photo pass share that I have done has been with friends who happen to be there at the same time. I don't think it's wrong nor do I consider that stealing.

    Disney obviously doesn't think it's stealing. Where does it say that only 1 family can use it? And how would you prove others aren't in your family? Disney is also a huge place for family reunions.

    The thing is ive heard somewhere that the official disney photographers will take pictures with your own camera. Im sure when we went a few years ago we had photos with all of us but on my camera.
    If not im sure youll always be able to find someone in the public that would take one - that costs nothing!
