    Hi....confused on how to get a photo CD not just pass....also is it a CD I can take to say CVS and make prints from? how do people get 200 or more photos on the CD when it is just at certain places to pose at? and are the all posed photos or candids too??

    Hi Charlene.   I have ordered the Photo CD twice in the past so I can help you here.    I suggest that you consider pre-ordering the Photo CD so you can save 20%.     You simply order prior to your vacation and upon your return you enter your Photpass number(s) which will combine any pictures taken into you on-line account.  

    You will be surprised how many pictures you can collect if you try.   My family attempts to have pictures taken at all the major attractions and should you visit for a few days, you will collect quite a few.   Our last trip we hade over 125 pictures to start.   What I really like about the PhotoCD is that when you return home you can take these pictures and add a wide array of Disney Signatures and Borders.   These really make the pictures extra special.   With this, we did wind up nearly 250 professional looking pictures.   When complete, Disney will send you a CD which you can take to any photo shop for printing or load to your own computer.

    As for posed versus candid pictures, we try to mix things up by trying to have fun in our photos.   Another suggestion is to consider having a personal photo session taken at one of the Disney resorts.  We stopped by the Grand Floridian to have our family photographed throughout the resort for some of the best pictures you could imagine.   You can find out more about this on the last page of this PhotoPass tip list.    Hope this helps!
