    I'm trying to decide which Photo Pass pkg to get. Are all the pics posed pics? At the character meals, how do they know you have the photo pass plus? Do they ever take non-posed pics? I like pics that are posed but also like some to be spontaneous type

    Howdy Sue! PhotoPass+ is fabulous and has become a must have item for our Walt Disney World vacations!  I would highly encourage you to select PhotoPass+!!! 
    I would also encourage you to take advantage of the current offer and order PhotoPass+ at least 14 days in advance of your vacation for $149. It's a great value!!

    During the Disney Character dining, you will be asked if you have PhotoPass+ and then you will present your card/magic band as appropriate.

    While several of the photographs are posed, you will find countless photos that the Photographers take as you/your child/children are walking up to the Characters or chatting with them before and after the posed picture.

    Some of my favorite photos have been captured as my kiddos talked with or gave hugs to Disney Characters throughout the theme parks.  Spontaneous and real and very very magical!!

    PhotoPass+ is worth every penny.  The ability to add many attraction photos is a bonus as well!!  You will love PhotoPass+!!

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information.  Have a magical day!!
