    We are going on a 3 night cruise. I am wondering if the cruise photo packages are worth it for just a 3 night cruise? What are the different photo opportunities on the cruise? Also, will they take your pictures if you haven't pre-purchased?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Eee! Your upcoming Disney Cruise to paradise will be here before you know it! One of my favorite cruise memories with my son was photographed by an onboard photographer! The photo captured the look of pure joy on my son's face when Minnie Mouse met him and gave him a hug. I will never forget that moment and am so thankful I have a framed picture of it!

    You will have so many photo opportunities throughout your three-night voyage on the high seas! Actually, you will get an opportunity to have a group photo taken even prior to boarding the ship! Professional photographers will be ready to snap your picture in the Cruise Terminal on embarkation day. You will also find photographers at the different Character Experiences, in the Lobby Atrium before dinner where you can choose from a selection of beautiful backdrops, on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay and even during dinner in the Main Dining Restaurants. If you plan on taking advantage of the many photo opportunities offered, then I think purchasing a photo package through My Cruise Photos will be worth it!

    Even if you don't purchase a photo package prior to setting sail, the onboard photographers will absolutely still take your picture! You will be able to view and purchase your photos onboard by visiting Shutters: The Onboard Photography Shop.

    Jennifer, I hope every magical moment is captured by the onboard photographers during your upcoming Disney Cruise!
