    If you purchase the photo book keepsake, do you also have to purchase the photo pass?

    Hi Raquel,  

    Thanks for swimming by planDisney with your insightful question about the photography services and products onboard Disney Cruise Line! These are such incredible vacations, so naturally you want to preserve and display your magical moments through beautifully captured photographs. I’m happy to help you understand what’s available for your upcoming sailing.

    Photography services with Disney Cruise Line differ somewhat from the PhotoPass Service and products available at the Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. You can purchase an unlimited photo package for your cruise, but this is not required to enable the photography services throughout your vacation. You may choose to pose for photos throughout your cruise and then select which images and products to purchase at the end of your sailing. The PhotoBook Keepsake is a separate product from the unlimited or numbered photograph packages available to purchase.

    You may choose to purchase one or more of these products before your sailing to enjoy special savings, Raquel. Selecting these products in advance (available online when you reserve other cruise activities) will offer a discount from purchasing onboard, but of course you have the uncertainty of not seeing the images before you purchase. I can assure you there will be plenty of photography opportunities and you should have many wonderful images to choose from! You can pose as often as you’d like throughout your cruise and then ultimately select the exact images from that collection for your package of downloads or PhotoBook Keepsake book.

    We have a small family so there are only so many arrangements among us that we can pose in on our cruises and the Unlimited Package has too many photos for me. I purchase a 5- or 10-image package, depending on the length of our cruise, and always in advance to recognize that discount. It’s hard to get proper photographs of us all together without it being a selfie, so I appreciate the professional photography services offered onboard Disney Cruise Line and treasure these images from our past vacations. On the last evening of your cruise, you can visit Shutters Photography Shop onboard and select your images and products from a kiosk to easily finalize your order. If you select the PhotoBook Keepsake, you design this onboard and the final product will be shipped to your home. Friendly Cast Members are always on standby for assistance.

    Our vacation memories are precious, and I’m glad you’re thinking ahead of the right photography product for your family to savor these moments together. Please let us know how else we can help you plan for this special vacation.  

    Wishing you a magical cruise,
