    Hi Again! Can you tell me what is the difference between the PhotoPass+ $149 & the PhotoPass CD $120 advance purchase? Do I have to buy both in order to get the CD & where/when do I get the CD? And any borders/edits I make will they remain on the C

    Hi Sharon, 

    Both Disney PhotoPass options are a great value, it depends what you are planning to experience during your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation.  

    Disney's PhotoPass+ option is ideal for families who are going to do several character dining experiences that offer photo imaging packages, The Pirates League, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or if you plan on riding many of the attractions with photo imaging options as well.  This option does have a special pre-order price, but must be pre-ordered at least 14 days prior to arrival.  It also includes a Disney Photo Gallery CD (stock photos) that will be sent with your package before leaving for your vacation.  

    Disney's PhotoPass option only includes photos taken by PhotoPass photographers and do not include any of the extra dining photos or attraction photos.  This option does have a pre-order special, but can be ordered anytime.  

    With the purchase of either PhotoPass products, Disney's PhotoCD with all of your photos taken during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort is included in the purchase price.  You do not need to purchase both options.  When you arrive home, you can go to the Disney PhotoPass Website, to add all of your photos, add borders and edit as you would like.  When you are finished editing your photos all you have to do is add the Disney PhotoCD to your cart and a credit will be applied to your account.  If you have purchased the PhotoPass+ you will need to add the code found on your voucher that came in your package.  You will then be given the option to download your Photos or have them shipped to you.  If you choose to have your PhotoCD shipped, you will also be responsible for shipping costs.  

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.  I would be happy to help.
