    we are going back to Disney World in a few weeks, our 2nd time in 5 months!! we didn't take advantage of the photo pass as much as we wanted last time. How do you pre purchase the photo CD? is that chepaer than buying it after you come back from the trip?

    Hi Hsiao,

    Love that you are visiting Disney World for the 2nd time in 5 months! How awesome is that?!

    I am a big fan of Disney's PhotoPass & often pre-purchase the PhotoCD before my trip. Its a great way to save money & know I'm going to get some awesome shots of the whole family from our trip. 

    To pre-order the PhotoCD, go to They sometimes have special offers to save money when you pre-order.  If you go to, there is a link for $50.00 off if you pre-order the PhotoCD prior to your trip.  That's a big savings!  Keep in mind that you must pre-purchase before your first picture is taken.

    When you return from your trip & upload your PhotoPass Cards, be sure to play around with the editing, signature & border options before you purchase the CD. You can maintain the original print & come up with some really cute edited photos as well. On my last trip, I got an awesome shot of my oldest son with his favorite princess Cinderella - yes - boys love the princesses too. At the bottom I chose the "Just Engaged" border. So cute!

    Be sure to review all of the images in your account and make any edits to your photos prior to purchasing your PhotoCD to ensure your photos include the borders and signatures you desire. The price of the PhotoCD is the same regardless of the number of Disney's PhotoPass photos in your account.

    Make sure you stop for pictures when you see a PhotoPass Photographer. They are great at getting awesome shots from some amazing PictureSpots. Be sure to see you park Guide Maps for some of the locations.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
