    Hello- I have a question about the photopass that you can purchase for $99. I understand that you get a CD with all of your pictures on it, but do you have to purchase prints you want from Disney, or does that CD allow you to print on your own at a store?

    Hi Nickie,

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel!

    I am a big fan of Disney's PhotoPass and often pre-purchase the PhotoCD before my trip.  Its a great way to save money and know I'm going to get some awesome shots of the whole family from our trip.

    You do not have to purchase the prints in addition to the PhotoCD.  The PhotoCD contains the separate photos and allows you to print your own. Images will be in .jpg format and are high resolution (300 dpi) so that you can obtain high-quality prints.

    When you return from your trip and upload your PhotoPass Cards, be sure to play around with the editing, signature and boarder options before you purchase the PhotoCD.  You can maintain the original print and come up with some really cute edited photos as well.  On my last trip, I got an awesome shot of my oldest son with his favorite princess Cinderella - yes - boys love princesses too.  At the bottom I chose the "Just Engaged" border.  So cute!

    Be sure to review all of the images in your account and make any edits to your photos prior to purchasing your PhotoCD to ensure your photos include the borders and signatures you desire. The price of the PhotoCD is the same regardless of the number of Disney's PhotoPass photos in your account. 

    Unedited image files on Disney's PhotoCD are in a 4" x 6" aspect ratio. Any photos you choose to make edits to will be saved in the aspect ratio size you choose. The default aspect ratio size for edited photos is 4" x 6". If you would like your edited photos to be in a 5" x 7" or 8” x 10” aspect ratio, select either "5” x 7” print” or “8” x 10” print” from the order prints box on the Enhance Photos tab. Then click "Save As Copy". 

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
