    ? is, just about to preorder photo pass CD. I thought that I would receive a CD from the system. Do we have to upload the cards from home, and then receive a CD? Nervous, that I could end up with nothing but computer problems. Have you used? 39 days to go

    I'm not sure what you mean by "receive a CD from the system" but let me see if I can talk you through the process so it makes sense to you.

    1. Go to the parks and find a PhotoPass photographer (they're all over the place, this won't be hard). Ask him to take your picture. When he's done snapping you, he will hand you small plastic card that looks just like a thin credit card. This is your PhotoPass card. The card has a bunch of numbers on the back of it.

    2. Go have more pictures taken. Each time you do this, the photographer will either scan your PhotoPass card, or if you've forgotten it, he will give you a new one.

    3. Make sure you save all your PhotoPass cards. It doesn't hurt to write down the numbers on the card or take a photo of the numbers with your cell phone. It's really just the numbers you need.

    4. Go home and log on to It's very easy ... if you have enough computer savvy to submit a question to the Moms Panel, then you have enough to get the CD going.

    5. The site will ask you to type in the numbers on your PhotoPass cards into your account. There is no "uploading" involved on your part.

    6. All the pictures taken of you during your vacation will come up on the screen. You select the ones you want added to your CD and then a CD will be mailed to you.

    There is an even more detailed explanation of this on the independent website Look there for the "Definitive Guide" to PhotoPass.

    I have ordered the CD myself several times and have never had any computer problems with this at all.
