    Don't Pass on Photopass!

    I LOVE Disney's Photopass! Talk about something that enhances and even extends your vacation. First of all, I took advantage of the pre-pay offer...they do offer a nice savings. Then, while we were down there, we had fun with the photographers everywhere. Since I'm the one who usually takes all the photos, according to the family photo albums, I haven't been seen in WDW since the 1970's! It was great being in all the shots. On top of that, we made a game of collecting all the magic shots. For those of you who aren't aware, the photographers will ask you to make a specific pose, and later on when you see the photo there will be a special effect inserted into the shot. There are a few magic shots for each park. Sometimes the photographers will tell you what the effect is, and sometimes they leave it as a surprise. I think we got most, if not all of them. I won't post what they are here so as not to spoil any surprises. You can ask the Photopass photographers where you can go to get them. Not all of the photographers are "certified" to take them.

    The fun doesn't end when you get home, though. I've spent the last few weeks making all kinds of cool edits to the shots. Not only does the cost of the CD include all the shots they took in the park, it also includes all your edited shots. Finally, making the photobook has been great fun! For the book, you can use any of the original and edited Photopass shots, your own photographs, and even stock photos Disney provides. You can customize the background, layout, and text on each page. All this has extended the fun of the vacation beyond our visit! I'm completely hooked on it.

    I would encourage everyone to try it out if they haven't already.

    I second that! I made the book, too, and gave one to each of our girls and my father-in-law for Christmas! I really enjoyed it. I made a Christmas ornament with one of the pics. It turned out very nice! We have a group of 11 going this year. I hope to make a surprise for them using photopass!!

    I love Photopass! I did several of the special add-in shots last summer, and I believe I have 4 to go to do them all. I hope to do the remaining ones when I go back in Aug.

    Re: Don't Pass on Photopass!

    As of today Photo Pass has had an apx. 15% price increase.

    $129.95 to $149.95
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
