    About pre-buying the PhotoPass CD: How soon before should I purchase? How do the pics get from the card I get in the Parks to the CD I pre-ordered? Last vaca a CM added borders, etc to our pics while we were there, how can we get those after we are home?


    You can pre-purchase the PhotoPass CD the day before you leave if you'd like.  Just as long as it is paid before you begin your vacation you'll be all set.

    When you arrive at the first park and have your first picture taken, the PhotoPass photographer will give you a plastic credit card that tracks all of your pictures.  Safeguard this card!  If you lose it your pictures will be difficult or impossible to track down.  I strongly suggest writing down the card number, or snapping a digital picture of the card with your own phone or camera, so you have that as a backup.  Each time you have your picture take you'll show this card to the photographer so he/she can scan it. 

    When you get home from your vacation just go to the PhotoPass website and enter your card number and voila!  Your pictures will be ready and waiting for you.  You will be able to edit photos, crop, rotate, add borders, logos, and many more fun options when you get home.  Take your time editing the pictures - you have 30 days to get them just how you'd like.  Once you are satisfied, you'll be able to order the CD you've already paid for, and it will be delivered to your door about a week or so later.  Easy peasy!

    PhotoPass is a really great addition to your vacation, and I'm sure you will be happy you've ordered the CD.  We have never regretted it!
