    I've heard that there are some new effects available for the photopass photos. Mikey or Minnie sitting next to you on a bench.....photo of yourself with hand in the air and it turns into you holding a bunch of Mickey balloons.

    Anyone got these yet?

    Before the photopass, they would do this at the camera center when you paid for your pics..

    but now, from what I read you pose , and then you can edit your pics online and choose borders, characters and other stuff!....

    We've had a couple of photopass cards where we edit online...adding borders, character signatures etc but never an actual character before.
    I've had a hunt about and it seems that you now get these done in the parks....a bit like the Simba, Stitch, Hook etc photos.

    We've had a few of these! I think we had one at the magic kingdom in front of the castle where we had to hold our hands out and when we got the photo, stitch was sitting there :lol:

    We used the Photopass services on our trip in June. Unfortunately, I don't think our photographers were all that great. I have two pictures that actually showed an added character or image. One with my granddaughter holding balloons and one with my son holding Tinkerbell. I was very disappointed.

    This could be because this was our very first visit and perhaps I should have asked? Anyway, in the long run the pictures were with it for use on the Photopass site and adding borders.

    I would like to caution everyone to ask for what they want and be sure to have any photo packages you purchase be added to your photopass cards. I didn't know that we could add our Cinderella breakfast images, etc. to the Photopass cards...again, I was very disappointed.

    Any place that you can have pictures taken or purchased, be sure to have them added.

    I've just seen another new one too...made to look like you are jumping in the air in front of the hat at DHS.

    I think you really have to know what to ask for and try to get the photos taken when it's not too crowded. We've never had luck with 'special' pics right in front of the castle but over by the Crystal Palace (in between there and Main St) we've had the Tink ones.

    I think it depends on the photog.

    I'll be on the lookout for some of the newer ones though!
