    Hi, what a great service this is!! I would like to know about the photopass service, do I purchase a disc before our March 2012 trip or after. Read about it on site but still confused about how it all works! Thanks! Love you guys!!

    Thanks, Stephanie!  Love right back atcha!  Disney's PhotoPass service allows guests to have their pictures taken at various hot spots in the parks.  One of the perks is that your whole family will appear in the photo together, rather than leaving someone out behind the lens.  As for purchasing the CD, it can be done either before or after your trip.  I would recommend pre-purchasing, though, because it will save you about fifty dollars.  Even better news is that it's a risk free purchase; you can get a full refund if you decide you don't like the pictures once you've returned home.  Win-win, right?  Follow the link I included above to pre-purchase your CD.  Once you're in the parks, just approach a PhotoPass photographer when you see one and ask that he or she take your photo.  He or she will give you a PhotoPass card that you can keep and reuse.  Each and every time you have your photo taken, present the card so that your pictures can be scanned onto it.  When you get home, go online and enter your card number and your photos will all be displayed.  You can just enter the unique code you got when you pre-purchased the CD and your disc will be shipped, with the digital versions of your photos loaded onto it.  Easy peasy! 

    I hope that clears things up for you.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
