I bought the photo pass in 2011. We felt like it was worthit and we enjoyed the special effects like tinker bell in your hand. It let us have some family pictures, too. But I would suggest still taking your camera and taking your own pictures too, and not just relying on PhotoPass people, because we would have missed alot.

I did not realize untill it was to late about photo pass plus. I read that I had to order 14 days before I left on vacation or order in Walt Disney, but the price would be 200. Does anyone know if I can add it to a package cheaper or if when I get there the resort might give me a coupon or something. If not I guess I will be ordering just the photo pass this year.

Thanks!

No discounts upon arrival. Most people receive it in about 8 days. How soon is your trip?

For anyone else thinking of adding it to your package, just remember that if you do that, you will be charged about $8 extra in taxes. It is cheaper to order it on its own here...

It depends in where you live as to how quick you will get it. We live in North Georgia and I ordered ours on a Wednesday and it was in my mailbox on Friday. So that was way less than 14 days

Does any one if you can take a picture of the photo pass plus card on your smart phone and use it that way? I know the regular photo pass cards you can.

I think in the beginning it was a possibility, but I think they prefer you to have the actual card. Hopefully someone can chime in with recent experience.
