    Hi! I'm super excited for the option of the new Magic Shots at sea! I'm paid in full but unable to finalize the purchase of the unlimited photo package. Do I need to wait until the 15 day online check-in in order to purchase before sailing?

    Ahoy again, Vanessa!

    So happy that you charted a course back to planDisney! Sailing with Captain Minnie is an amazing way to explore various destinations all while enjoying fabulous food, exceptional service, Broadway-quality shows, and special memory making moments with favorite Disney characters. 

    I had to wait one day to answer your question...because my booking window for our upcoming cruise opened today! So that enabled me to follow the steps and see what I encountered during the same process. After logging in to My Reservations on the Disney Cruise Line website, I selected the first day of our cruise (but really any of the days would have worked) and then chose Onboard Fun. The first option available was the “Photo: Unlimited Package.” You will then click beside the members of your party and then it will give you the option to choose a time (the only one available for me was 8:00 A.M.) It then added the package to my account at the discounted rate since I pre-booked prior to my cruise. You should not have to wait until 15 days before your cruise to add the photo package; it should be available when your onboard booking window opened (since you already said that your cruise was paid in full). If you continue to have more problems, feel free to contact Disney Cruise Line for tech support.

    Oh boy, were you as excited as I was to hEAR about these Magic Shots that will now be available on a Disney cruise? I may have to ask for them all with such fun characters to choose from, including Tinker Bell, Captain Mickey, Captain Minnie, Sailor Pluto, Chip & Dale, Sailor Goofy, Cruise Director Daisy, and Sailor Donald. This photo-enhancing feature does not end onboard, but is also offered on Castaway Cay with the likes of Sebastian, Hei Hei and Flounder making magical photo appearances. I would ask the individual Disney Cruise Line photographers about adding in these features to your photos as some may have them available and others may not. Bonus: when you order the unlimited digital photo package, these unique Magic Shots are also included! PLUS the package is bookable in advance for a 15% discount. I call that a win-win!

    “Say cheese” to planDisney at any time if you have more questions. We would be happy to FOCUS on the answer for you. Vanessa, sending you all the pixie dust I can muster for a magical voyage with Captain Mickey!

    SEA ya real soon!
