    This past weekend's trip was to Universal and Islands of Adventure but Alysia has been begging to do the private photo pass session at Disney. We called and made reservations at the Poly and Grand Floridian (you can also do a session at Saratoga Springs). There has been lots of confusion about the sitting fee. We pre-ordered the photo pass and the Grand Floridian charged us $25. The Polynesian charged us the full $50.

    Anyway, Alysia and her BFF, Jordan, are in the photos. They recently got their hair cut alike and I have REPEATEDLY been telling people they are not twins and not even related. People then keep asking, "are you sure?" :slap: yep, I'm sure I would have known if I had twins.

    If you want to take a look at the pictures, here is the log in info

    Eeesh. I tried to look at them Johnie but the site is wicked slow and I never really got anywhere! Maybe too many folks are trying at the same time. I'll give it another try later.

    Thanks for sharing! :yes:

    They look really nice and gotta love to see smiles on teenagers' faces.

    And the great thing is you can add all your other park pictures to the photo pass as well. They did 180 pictures. I thought they turned out well and the girls are happy. Alysia has already spotted one she wants in her yearbook for the senior casual portraits.

    The sessions can be booked up to 30 days prior to arrival. The number to call is: 407-824-1700.

    I just saw that they've added the Beach Club as a location.

    Johnie....I read somewhere that you went along to see the photographer at a time prior to the actual photo shoot...is this true?
    If so, how long does this take?

    I did a photopass share on another board. I had seen the private shoot on the CD we shared.

    The private shoots are 30 minutes in length
