    Our first Disney World vacation is fast approaching May 31 to June 8th. We are very excited to stay at Art of Animation. Has anyone purchase the Disney Photo Pass or Photo Pass Plus? Is it worth the extra cost? We usually take pictures ourselves.

    Hello there Canna,

    You and your family will be departing just as we arrive for our Walt Disney World vacation! Maybe we'll run into you at MCO?  I have used both the Photopass and Photopass+ products and I love them! In fact, I'm about to place my order for our CDs within the next week. I always use my own camera as well but the Photopass photographers are very nice and most take better pictures than I do. We always love to make funny faces during the thrill rides such as Rockin' Roller Coaster and Splash Mountain. With the Photopass+ we do not have to worry about buying the prints since they are included in the price. We went on way more rides last time just to see how many different pictures we could take!

    I think in the long run, rationalizing the cost comes down to whether you will take the time to add custom frames and enjoys seeing the special effects added in some shots. If you do not feel like you want to purchase the whole package, you can always pick up a card, take as many pictures as you want, and when you arrive at home view your pictures. If you like some of the pictures taken by the Photopass photographers, you can order them a-la-carte.

    Thank you so much for asking the Moms Panel ! If you have additional question, we are always here for you! Oh and remember, there is a special pre-arrival discount for Photopass available if you purchase the product 14 days prior to your trip.
