    I would love if they offered the Disney Visa to Canadian, but alas they do not (as far as I know).
    The PhotoPass I think I will be using my next trip. I will be visiting Aug27-Sept5 with my fiance to plan our DISNEY WEDDING!!
    It will be the first trip we have taken just the two of us to Disney (previously going with family and friends). I definitely would want to capture the memories, especially the attraction photos! (woohoo splash mountain here we come). I always enjoy the photos from attractions but rarely purchase since I have to carry them the rest of the day, plus they are not the cheapest of souvenirs.
    Thanks for the always great news updates and live chat Lou. Until next week.

    We won’t be getting the Disney Visa…not a fan of Chase & we don’t need another credit card. We rarely use Photopass…we maybe get one photo per trip, if that. As for photo quality…I have been less than impressed with the quality of their photographers. As. For the evening EMH..never use them. We gomtomthe Morning EMH’s & they are great!

    Well I usually work the run events. I am on the SAG team and normally drive a bus for that event. I will also be working the Wine and Dine event.
