    Hello "moms"! I am coming to WDW on 8/12-16 for a convention, then a family vacation 8/16-23. I am confused about the photopass CD & plus offers. If I were to buy the plus, when & where should I do so? Can I buy it at the hotel for th

    Hello, April!

    We recently purchased the new Disney PhotoPass + when we were on our early July trip to Walt Disney World and we just love it!

    While you could have taken advantage of a pre-order special on either the PhotoCD or the PhotoPass +, I wouldn't recommend that you do so now, since you don't have at least 14 days before you depart. Not to worry, they are still a great deal since they still entitle you to fabulous professional-quality photos from your trip to WDW.

    When you first head to a WDW park or Downtown Disney, go directly to a PhotoPass viewing area where you'll be able to make your purchase right away. If you'd like to purchase the PhotoPass +, buying early will ensure that all of your attraction photos will be placed into your account (that's a really great reason to purchase PhotoPass +, and enabled my family to capture some hilarious moments on attractions that we would not have purchased otherwise.) Otherwise, you can add PhotoPasses to your account from your trip, but those attraction photos will not be among them.

    Select hotels are equipped with PhotoPass Viewing Stations, such as Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resorts, so if you happen to be visiting one of those, stop in and pick up your PhotoCD or PhotoPass + right then and there. If you purchase PhotoPass +, be sure to keep the Card with you at all times; you never know when a great photo opportunity is going to present itself!
