    Hi Mom's! I am having a hard time deciding on the Photo Pass purchase. We prob won't be riding the rides that take pics. We are planning a character breakfast and Princess Tea Party though. Do you think it's worth the price for these few things?

    Hi Rhonda!

    That is a really difficult question to answer as it is really guest dependent.  If you think you will be purchasing a lot of PhotoPass photos then it makes sense to pre-order the PhotoPass CD and if you do that then it's not really that much more to go to PhotoPass +.

    So the first question is probably how many photos do you think you want to get from PhotoPass.  There are PhotoPass photographers located throughout the theme parks and water parks.  Finding one usually isn't a problem, though you might have to wait to get your photo taken especially if it is just "out on the street" and not at an official Character Meet and Greet.  Some guests loving getting as many PhotoPass pictures as possible and in that case, it makes sense to pre-order the PhotoPass CD and probably PhotoPass +.  Other guests only get a photo or two from PhotoPass and then it usually doesn't make the most economical sense.

    I should point out that you can get a PhotoPass photographer to take a photo with your own camera!  Just ask the photographer and he or she will be happy to do it.  That's something else to consider.

    Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
