    is there anywhere at disney i can purchase photo souverniers taking by the photographes rather than waiting till i get home and paying shipping. if not the photopass runs out 30days after 1st or last photo loaded/taken we are moving to other resort non dis

    Hi Nicola!

    There are a couple of options for photo souvenirs. First, if you dine at any of the character dining experiences in which photos come with the package, such as Cinderella's Royal Table or Princess Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, then you receive your photo and commemorative frame that day. 

    Other locations, such as Ohana and Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House, take your photo and then bring it to the table and show it to you with the option to purchase. If you decide to purchase the photo, then you can take it home that day.

    You can also purchase photos taken at select attractions and receive them that same day.

    The photos taken by the PhotoPass photographers are not available to purchase in the park, rather you will use your PhotoPass card and view the photos once you arrive back home. The PhotoPass picture will expire 30 days after the first day you view them online, not 30 days after your vacation, so I highly suggest that you wait to view your pictures until you are ready to make the purchase. I have made the mistake of viewing my photos and then waiting to go back online to order and missing the 30 day window. You can purchase an extension if you know that you will need more time.

    Your other option for purchasing photo souvenirs right away and not paying for shipping is to use your own digital camera and then taking your memory card to a local photo center that processes 1-hour photo souvenirs, and then buying them there and bringing them home with you. They wouldn't be able to use the PhotoPass pictures though. only those taken with your own camera.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
