    SOOOOO confused about "what you get" when you purchase the photopass + and if its worth the 170 bucks. We do ride all the rides and have ADR at O'hana, Cinderella dinner @ 1900 & Tusker House. I ususally dont buy pics cuz I take my own. Help?

    Hello, Heather!

    We just got back from Walt Disney World, where we purchased our very first PhotoPass +; I think it was worth it.

    We never buy the attraction photos, although some of them are really fantastic. However, because of our PhotoPass +, we were able to have access to every frightened face this time. In addition, Disney's professional photographers are able to capture some wonderful moments that most Guests' cameras can't. For example, we got some lovely pics of my daughter and her friend during evening Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom; I could never perfect the use of flash in that setting at night, but the photographer did! We also had some great pics taken at Blizzard Beach at times when I would never have had a camera in hand. (They even captured some great shots of us as we plunged down Summit Plummit, as well as when we got to the bottom. Wow!)  Because we knew we were going to get every pic this time around, we stopped a little more often and had group pics taken, which is a great way to remember who was there, at what ages, etc.

    Your O'hana meal can include some great shots right in front of the restaurant, too, where a PhotoPass photographer is stationed. It's also really nice to have all of our photos in one place, too. I'm really happy with the outcome.

    If you're on Facebook, look for Disney's PhotoPass Service page (under travel / leisure) where you'll find lots of information and can read other Guests' experiences with PhotoPass +. If you decide to purchase this, be sure to take advantage of the pre-order discount, and allow at least 14 days for delivery.

    Have a wonderful trip! Send more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
