    Hi Cathy, I noticed you liked do I. Hope you can answer a couple ?? about archive CD. Do I need to pre order archive CD to upload personal pictures at the parks? Is there a limited number of times you can upload? How can I find my pic

    Hi, April!   I do love to scrapbook and I have countless pictures of my kids in just about every location in Walt Disney World!   But, I honestly have never used the Personal Photo Archive CD in Disney.  I get my pictures 2 ways:   I take them on my own camera (I have my memory card cleared off so I can take about 500 pictures - way more than I have ever needed).  The second way is I use the free PhotoPass service and purchase a picture or 2 that a professional PhotoPass photographer takes. 

    But back to your question!  I did some research and you will need to purchase the Photo Archive CD to upload your pictures.   Click HERE for more details.   I did not see any restrictions on the number of photos or number of times you download.

    Make sure to read THIS.  It explains the Express upload service.  What I found very important is the pictures that you upload have the same 30 day expiration as the rest of your PhotoPass pictures.   I guess what this means is make sure to get the pictures from the upload over to the Archive CD in a timely manner!

    Once your pictures are uploaded, developed, and ready to scrap, you are going to want some great materials, so make sure to check out all the fun scrapbook supplies available in many gifts shops around property.  

    I really hope this helps and I hope you get some amazing pictures of your family as you Let the Memories Begin on your magical Walt Disney World vacation!
