    Travelling on the Disney Wonder, and would like some tips and advice on purchasing a photography package. Secondly, will the photoghraphers take pictures with my personal camera?

    Welcome aboard, Joel! Your Alaskan cruise on the beautiful Disney Wonder is just around the corner! I can't wait for your family to experience the magnificent sights of the Last Frontier as you sail! Be sure to have your own camera out and ready all the time! You won't want to miss a single magical memory!

    If you think you'll want to purchase quite a few photographs onboard and plan to take advantage of many of the character photo opportunities as well as the other background settings onboard each day, purchasing a photo package can be a great savings for you as opposed to buying individual photos. The very first time my family and I sailed, we were so happy we had that photo package, as we met with almost every character we could onboard and had lots of family photos each night too! Check out the Photography Services page of Disney Cruise Line's website for more details, and for the link to My Cruise Photos, where you can pre-purchase a photo package, saving you a bit over purchasing the same package onboard. Simply purchasing pictures onboard is an option too! Just remember that once you leave the ship, you won't have access to any photos taken onboard unless you've purchased them as part of a package or individually, so make any final choices by the last night onboard!

    Photographers onboard will not use your camera, however, most of the time the Cast Members who are with the characters are happy to take your picture with your camera for you. If the characters or a certain setting doesn't have anyone there but the photographer, you can always ask the next person in line to snap one with your camera, and then return the favor for them. We do that all the time!

    Have such a magical trip, Joel!
