    Hi Kimberly L, Thank you so much for your really helpful answer re which photo pass to pre-order. If we view our photos at the photopass booths does that start our 30 day viewing time? If we have 2 cards do we have to 'join' them before we leave Disney?

    Hello again, Nicola! I'm so happy to hear that my answer was helpful - thank you for the lovely feedback! 

    You ask two excellent questions! The Photo Centers in the theme parks and at Downtown Disney (Marketplace) and the PhotoPass viewing stations at select Disney Deluxe Resorts (Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Beach Club, Animal Kingdom Lodge, and Wilderness Lodge) are not connected to the PhotoPass website, so there is no effect on the 30-day viewing window should you wish to have a look at your photos while still on Disney property. 

    I do actually recommend visiting one of the PhotoPass viewing stations or Photo Centers to confirm that all of your photos appear correctly and no photos are missing. In particular, you'll want to check that any pre-paid Photo Packages from select character dining locations (such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall) have been properly linked to your PhotoPass card. Once you're back home, it will be much more difficult to attempt to locate these photos if they have not already been associated with your PhotoPass card.  

    You do not need to link multiple PhotoPass cards before you leave Walt Disney World Resort. When you return home, you would simply log onto the Disney PhotoPass website to add the ID numbers from all of your cards to your account. It's really quite easy and convenient!

    Here is a link to the Disney PhotoPass website with more information on Disney's PhotoPass Service, including where to find photographers in the parks, Magic Shots, and tips and tricks for getting the most out of your PhotoPass package.  

    I hope your family have a wonderfully magical holiday, Nicola! Please write back with any other questions as you plan your trip.
