We are doing + again on our upcoming trip. It is well worth it, especially if you do any of the meal locations.

For meal photos with plus, you get digital copies and prints. For ride photos, you get just digital copies.

Another difference is that for plus, you must order at least 14 days before your trip, because they snail mail a voucher that must be redeemed for the plus card.
Thank you both for the wonderful information... I had no idea!

I think with UK you get your agent to book it to your room where you pick up your voucher when you check in.

PLUS is only good for 14 days. and you get ONLY one card-- so its not good for a Group of more then one family to share unless you are going to be in the same park each day

Ah - thank you for the info - we don't use an agent - we do everything ourselves We may have to just suffer the full cost on the arrival night when we pick up and activate all our passes etc. We're also there for 3 weeks so I wonder if there will be something manual that a CM will do as we'll need more than 14 days. It's just the 2 of us so one card is no issue - but we do take a LOT of Photopass pictures on our trips

I have seen posts from people outside the US getting it. I believe the only limitation is that while the price of photopass plus includes domestic shipping, it does not include international shipping.

Yeah, I bought it a few months ago and I live in England. It arrived in about 10 days. The cd with the voucher.

You DO NOT have to order PhotoPass+ if you still want it and you're only a day or two away from your trip. I purchased mine over the phone a day before I left. Soon as I got to the Magic Kingdom I went and spoke to someone about it, and they were able to look-up my info on my account. I didn't have a CD or voucher. I had just called a Disney agent the night before about something related to my online checkin, and she asked me if I wanted to purchase it. Don't worry about the stuff not coming in the mail if it doesn't. As long as it's attached to your Disney account they can look it up and give you the CD and PhotoPass card with lanyard at the MK.

I'm based in the UK and have purchased it twice now. Give it plenty of time to ship, just in case of Royal Mail being sketchy, but you can purchase.

I would highly recommend it. Thanks to PP+ I have multiple pictures from the rides, where we would normally buy one or two a trip. We must have 10 shots from ToT alone. Any ride where they take a picture you can have added to your card.

We are big fans of Tusker House, and getting the picture there (electronically and hard copy) was a great bonus. We would have bought it regardless, so it really did save us money.

There are only the 2 of us so having us both in the shot is great. We ended up with 603+ pictures including the multiple frames etc. Great value!

Sorry if this sounds dumb, but is there any way to see what the pictures look like first and then order the photopass+? I like how with the regular photopass I can see if any of the pictures look good before I order them. I dont want to spend all of this money if the pictures come out bad. But seeing that they put the pictures from the rides makes me want it.

Regular photopass is refundable if you don't like/want the photos.

Photopass Plus is not refundable.

If you don't pre purchase a photopass CD and then decide you want it, you have to pay full price.

I have seen mention in the last few days that prints at meals are no longer part of photo pass plus, only digital copies. I already bought it for my November trip before they made the change. Does anyone have more info on this? Will they honor what they sold me or am I just out of luck?

Redeeming Voucher

I ordered my PP+ the other day. I did not realize there was a voucher that needed to be redeemed until now. We will arrive early evening and have an ADR at Chef Mickey's. We will not be going to a park that day. Where would be the best place to redeem it? I am assuming we would need to do so before the dinner in order to get the pictures.

Oh, and that's a bummer if the prints are no longer included.

Thanks,

I have not heard or read that, although there have been a lot of changes recently. Hopefully someone who knows for sure will come along soon.

You can get the photopass Plus card at Chef Mickey's.
This is just another addition to the question on where you can get your photopass+ card...Can we pick them up at the resorts??
