    I read that Shutters Photography takes the pictures and does the pic CD's. This still true? What is the cost of all this and is it worth it? Do we set it up beforehand? 1st cruise. 1 wk Fantasy this Easter. Kids are 10, 8, 5. Thanks moms. :-)

    Welcome aboard, Jeannine! One thing is certain when you sail with Disney Cruise Line: You'll be making magical memories the whole time! We love that Disney's photographers are around the ship ready to capture our whole family on the trip. Since I'm our family's official photographer, without the Disney photographers snapping pictures of our whole family, you may not even know I was on the cruise when you look at my camera's pictures, since I'm always the one taking the pictures! Thank goodness for the Disney photographers who get great shots of my entire family together!

    These photos are available to purchase as individual prints or in photo packages that include prints or cd's or both. Check out My Cruise Photos for details, pricing, and pre-ordering. The first time we sailed with Disney, we ordered our full cruise photos cd and then made sure we took advantage of every photo opportunity possible, as they'd all be included. Now, we usually wait until one of the final nights of the cruise and view our favorite photos in Shutters before deciding which package to buy. Either way, you'll have lots of choices. The prices are currently the same whether you pre-order or purchase onboard. However on certain sailings, a limited number of cd's may be available, as it takes quite awhile to produce all of those for guests, so don't wait too long onboard to purchase if you do not pre-order the cd. Also, be aware that once you leave the ship, you will not have access to purchase photos online from home, so be sure you make any must-have photo purchases while onboard!

    Since this is your first cruise and your kids are young, you may consider the cd that includes all the images from your trip. Especially if you'll be meeting a lot of characters, you'll enjoy having every single image! I hope those details help as you plan for your Easter sailing, Jeannine!
