    Trying to figure out what would be the better way to go...get the photo pass+ or just buy the prints after we get home. How much do the prints cost if you are just buying them?

    Hi, Carrie! Thanks for visiting us again here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family always pre-orders Disney's PhotoPass Photo CD (using the pre-arrival discounted offer) because it's a really great value for us. We end up with loads of photos on our CD of our family at character dining locations and character meet-and-greets as well as in front of park icons and in Magic Shots!  

    I would recommend purchasing the Disney PhotoPass+ pre-arrival special offer package rather than buying individual prints - and here's why: 

    Using the pre-arrival discounted offer, the PhotoPass+ package would cost you $149. After you return home and receive your CD, you can choose which photos you'd like to have printed. You'll be able to get quality prints for a very reasonable price at your local Costco or Target (or other warehouse/discount department store).   

    If, however, you were to order prints from the PhotoPass website, the cost would be $14.95 for either two 4" x 6" OR two 5" x 7" prints. One 8" x 10" print is $16.95 and one 16" x 20" print is $24.95. Photo downloads are $14.95 each. This is fine if you're just interested in ordering a few prints, but if you're like me, you'll have many keepsake photos on your CD that you'll want to print - to display in your home, use in a vacation scrapbook, give as gifts to family and friends, or even make into holiday cards! 

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Carrie! Please don't hesitate to send me any other questions before your April trip. I'm here to help!
