New Service for Digital Cameras at WDW
Beginning January 3, 2005, a new service will be available to our guests visiting our Theme Parks. This new service for digital cameras will allow Guests to download their images and other media information from a digital media card to a CD.
Each of the camera centers in the four Theme Parks have been equipped with this new technology. In addition, this technology will be deployed in the Disney Resort properties over the next few months.
Due to the increase in digital camera usage during recent years, Guest demand for our on-property film processing services has decreased. As a result,film processing will no longer be available at the four Theme Parks or the Walt Disney WorldŽ resorts effective January 3, 2005.
This service has been around awhile.
My family visited WDW last May and I took over 1000 pics using my digital camera. Several times I took my memory cards to the Kodak store in MGM Studios and had them copy my pictures to CD.
Here are so glitches though. Each CD can only hold 70mb (approx. 25 3meg pictures) so it takes 2 cds to download 1 -128mb memory card. The second gotcha is that each cd costs $10.99 and includes a full color index card of your pictures so you know what is on each CD.
As you can imagine this can become pretty expensive quickly. FYI, you can also have your digital video camera tapes copied to DVD also! If I remember correctly the price was somewhere around $25. :mickeykid
