    I'm confused about the photo pass and cd and what this is and what my options are. Can you help explain this to me so I can figure out if it is something we should do on our first family Disney trip.

    Hi Missy!

    You will be given a credit card sized PhotoPass card that you will keep with you throughout your vacation.  Anytime you see a PhotoPass Cast Member at any of the parks, hand of your card and they will take your photo.  They are especially helpful so all of the family can get in the shots.  They are mostly found in front of the big iconic locations like on Main Street in front of Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom, in front of Spaceship Earth at Epcot, in front of the Sorcerer's Hat at Hollywood Studios and in front of the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom.  They are also found at most of the character meet & greets.  When you get home from your vacation, you can view all of your photos on the PhotoPass website.  You can edit them however you'd like and even add some special effects to them!  You can purchase prints, gifts, or even digital prints so you get the rights to the photos and can print them yourself.  The best value in my opinion is to get the photo CD which includes every photo on your PhotoPass card INCLUDING the ones you edited.  You can take your photo CD to any printer and print them yourself.

    You have a couple of options with the PhotoPass CD.  You can purchase it when you get home from your vacation at the current price of $169.95 or you can pre-purchase the PhotoPass CD it before your vacation at a $50 savings.  

    Another brand new option is the PhotoPass+.  This will include all of your PhotoPass CD photos AND photos taken from select attractions and restaurants.  A new pre-purchase discount for PhotoPass+ was just released for this for $30 off the full price, making it $169.95.  

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
