    Oh Wow!!!!

    That looks like something for me and the family to do for our next trip!!!

    We have been to WDW so many times, we have stopped taking pictures because we want to enjoy the parks - now we will have a picture taking mission to accomplish - add a whole new twist to our trip!!

    Thanks for the info Lou - this is something we will definitely be investing in!!!!

    Looks like fun - except for the cost. Yikes!

    Started playing with it - uploaded a few pics from last trip, and it is easy to use. The "Beyond the Parks" chapter will ask what resort you stayed at and use footage from it. There is also a stock library of 40+ Disney photos to use if you need additional ones in your chapter.

    They limit the number of photos per chapter (MK, Epcot, Studios, AK, and Beyond the Parks are the chapters) from 7 to 16 pictures. You can upload up to 120 photos that will be used in a separate slide show, but only 68 can be used in the movie. You can also retrieve your Photopass photos through the movie site and use them in your movie!

    You can preview the movie you create online, though they warn that there will be additional special effects added that you won't see in the preview.

    Still not convinced it's worth the price they are asking, but it's a lot quicker than doing it myself, and they've got all the extras to make something pretty cool.

    I went to Wal-Mart when we got home and dumped all the photos on my memory card (417 to be exact) onto a CD for $2.98. Then we put them in the DVD player at home, projected it onto our 8 foot movie screen and viola, instant slide show for less than 3 bucks. Pop a Disney CD into the stereo and we are set to go.

    That being said, we will still do the Disney movie thing!

    Thanks Lou I think I might do this for this trip. I'm with Pat though this is a bit pricey but it would make a great gift for the kids for Christmas.

    This looks sooo cool! I can do slideshows myself, but I love all the special effects and the characters and stuff that Disney throws in. It is pricey, meaning I probably will never get to do it, but then again, what did you expect from Disney? They did their usual. Awesome stuff... outrageous price.
