    We have two upcoming WDW trips- for MNSSHP in Oct and for the 10K in Jan. Want to get photo pass+ for one trip only. Which would you recommend? We have Chef Mickey's reservations in Jan but want to get the magic shots from MNSSHP. Thanks!

    Hi, Kim! Two upcoming trips to Walt Disney World Resort? Lucky you! I also happen to be heading to the Most Magical Place on Earth at the end of October for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (along with several other fun scheduled and not-so-scheduled activities!). I'm a big fan of Disney's PhotoPass Service and my family loves having Magic Shots taken in the parks, but our favorite special shots are hands-down the ones offered during the Halloween Party. There's just something very cool about a ghost hearse driver and his horse and a famous trio of hitchhiking ghosts appearing next to you in some spooky photos! We also like to have our photo taken in front of Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach and then add the special Halloween Party border to the photo. 

    I would definitely recommend pre-purchasing PhotoPass+ for your October visit and here's why:
    You'll have the option to dine at Chef Mickey's again on a future visit and either choose to pay out-of-pocket for the print character photo package or use PhotoPass+, but you can only get those super cool ghostly shots at the Halloween Party (which, as you surely know, is a separate ticketed event). Chef Mickey's is open year-round but the Halloween Party only happens on select nights in September and October (and sometimes extends until November, such as this year with the last party night scheduled on Friday, November 1st). Also, the way I look at it, on either (or both) your October and January visits, you'll have several opportunities to have photos taken with Mickey and friends in the parks or even at other character dining locations if you choose (Tusker House, The Garden Grill, Mickey's Backyard BBQ, etc.).

    I hope this helps! Please come visit us again here at the Moms Panel with any other questions as you continue to plan your upcoming trips.
