    You can arrange for private 30 minute photo sessions with a Disney's PhotoPass photographer at the Grand Floridian, Beach Club, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, Animal Kingdom Lodge or Saratoga Springs Resort.

    I'm not very familiar with the resorts and their grounds....which location would you choose?

    Interesting to see that they added some new places. Alysia and Jordan did theirs last July at the Polynesian and Grand Floridian. They turned out great.

    I'd definitely go for the white sandy beaches of the GF and that lovely staircase.

    How far in advance do you have to book these things and what number do you call?

    I'm not one for having my photo taken and thats why I like being at the other side of the camera :taunt: but I think DW would like having a set of photos from our beloved wilderness lodge

    StitchKingdom is a great source for info about Photopass. From there:

    Disney Resorts Private Photo Shoot - You can arrange for private 30 minute photo sessions with a Disney's PhotoPass photographer at the Grand Floridian, Beach Club, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge or Animal Kingdom Lodge (Please note that Saratoga Springs is no longer offered. It's expected to be moved to the Contemporary Resort but no time line has been offered at this time). The sessions includes around 40 photos (limited only by time) taken around the picturesque resorts and their beaches. Please note that as of September 1, 2008, Portrait sessions at the resorts are a separate entity from the Disney's PhotoPass system in the theme parks. While both Parks and Portraits use the same system for their photos, they are separate products. There is also a new pricing structure in place, which is as follows:

    Disney's PhotoPass Portrait Session Photo Package - For a price of $49.95, you will get your choice of one of the following packages: (A) 8x10 (2), 5x7 (3); (B) 5x7 (2), 4x6 (4 sets of 2); (C) 5x7 (7). You will be able to choose the pose for each print, so you can have up to 5 different poses for Package A, up to 6 different poses for Package B and up to 7 different poses for Package C

    Disney's PhotoPass Portrait Session PhotoCD - For a price of $99.95, you will get your choice of photo package as explained above plus all of the photos on a PhotoCD.

    For guests who have either pre-purchased Disney's PhotoPass PhotoCD or have purchased the PhotoCD in the parks, the session will be available for $70.

    Reports from guests who have participated in the photo sessions are overwhelmingly positive. Available times are seasonal, starting daily at 8 am until 7 pm or sunset, whichever comes first. Call 407-824-1700 to make reservations up to 30 days in advance or for additional information.

    whew...and the price went up a lot! I'm glad the girls did it last July. I did post some photos last summer. Let me see if I can find some for you

    Does the $99.95 include the price of the actual shoot or do you pay for the photographer on top of the photo CD? :unsure:
    Do you pay when you prebook by phone or on the actual day of the shoot?

    As far as I can tell the $99.95 is for the photoshoot a set of photos (from the options available) + all the photos taken on a cd.

    I would think you pay at time of booking with the usual 48 hour cancellation window.

    The bit that confuses me is the discounts if you have pre-ordered a photopass cd for the parks!

    I know that you can book sessions 30 days in advance, but is that 30 days from the date of the photoshoot or 30 days from the beginning of your holiday reservation??
