    sailing on Fantasy March 23-30. I am planning on purchasing a photo package. I'm trying to decide whether it is better to preorder a package before we sail or wait until we are onboard and use my Disney Visa card. What would you recommend?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jerri!
    I am glad that you have cruised back with your photo package question.  I am so excited for you and your pirate crew to be setting sail with Captain Mickey next month!  I hope you were able to decide on a great Port Adventure for Tortola.  With all the magic in store for you, I can understand wanting to capture it all on film to remember for years to come!

    I love using the photography services onboard.  It is great to have professional pictures taken during your vacation and the best part is that EVERYONE is in the picture!  I would highly recommend you pre-purchase your package prior to your sailing.  Photo packages offered through Disney Cruise Line are always discounted and offered at their best price prior to sailing.  You will still be able to pay with your Disney Visa card.  Be sure to order your photography package at least 24 hours prior to 12:00 AM on your embarkation day.

    Review your Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to check for locations and times of character meet and greets as well as other great photo opportunities to build a variety of moments for your photo package.  Professional photographers will also be around on select nights during dinner to capture dining events like Pirate Night as well.  There is a wonderful photo opportunity as you board the ship on embarkation day.  This is our favorite spot to show off the family in their matching t-shirts!  I would recommend checking in at Shutter's (Deck 4, Midship) to review your photos and identify your favorites periodically throughout your cruise to ensure you have captured your favorite moments.

    Have fun making magical memories!  Bon voyage!  Angie
