PhotoPass Plus

Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked before but is there a time limit to use the PhotoPAss Plus after arrival. We have a week at WDW, then a week cruise, then another 4days after the cruise at WDW. So we will need around 18days validity (I realise it cannot be used on the cruise). I read somewhere that they are only valid for 14 days however when I go to pre order it online there is nothing to say this. Can anyone please clarify this for me...thanks

Yes it is 14 days from cashing in your coupon that you receive in the post.
I have the same problem as you this year in August.

I thought you could add photopass pics to your account/CD for 30 days? When did this change? That stinks!

You can, but when you get a "plus" card, the card is only valid for 14 days of actual use. You still have 30 days to enter it online.

Also, it is only the plus card that is affected, so you can use the regular Photopass cards for the second part of the trip and get those pics on your cd.

And the only thing that you will miss out on are the ride pictures and character meals the second half of your trip since those can only be added to PP+ card, which you need to present at the ride or meal.

discounts

Does anyone know where I can get a discount for the photo plus- in addition to the pre-buy? I will be "going home" on Jluy 13th for a week at Animal Kingdom Lodge with my family of 10. Every little bit of savings helps!

As far as I know, the preorder is the best price you will find.

someone mentioned that they told the CMs when they were picking up their PP+ card that they need to extend the time since they were coming for week then meeting friends at the beach then coming back & they got it extended without paying extra - now if this is something that happens alot or they just lucked out - I don't know but someone else chimed in & said they extended for them too.

it wouldn't hurt to ask

Is it too early to buy for November? I didn't know if there was a time period that you had to use the prepurchased photopass+. I was going to buy now in case they would decide to raise the price. And I can buy a gift card at Kroger and get 4x fuel points before Easter and buy the photopass+ with the giftcard. I would end up saving $9 on gas with the fuel points from the giftcard.
