I have been trying to decide if I want to get the photopass, is it really worth it?? And if you have got it before do you still bring your own camera with you? I just can't decide due to the cost... (sorry if this ended up in some peoples comments my ipod went crazy trying to post this!)

Oh don't get me wrong, the photopass teams are horribly trained. 90% of the photos will turn out as garbage. But hey it's you're free choice to use it. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 2:23PM
Well folks like I said. You all have the FREEdom to research things online about PHOTOPASS. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 12:40PM
Always take your own camera. !!! - totfav  8.9 #273 9:48AM
You should do some freedom research for Photopass. And no, there is not an autocorrect in this. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 10:43AM
I looked it up but just can't decide if I want to buy it or not... - ccmom  187.5 #47 11:12AM
I think that is what you meant lol...just look it up and read up on right??? - ccmom  187.5 #47 11:13AM
Personally, I think it's worth it! And yes, we also bring our camera ... Keep in mind that I don't have a high end camera. - JessiBelle22  78.4 #83 10:53AM
http://allears.net/tp/ppass.htm Maybe this link will help. PP does offer photos from attractions, and whatever restaurant you go to and they take your pictures, you'll get those as well. As for quality, I think it's great. Depends on where you take your cd. I take mine to Walgreens, and they all come out beautiful. I think. Hope this helps? :) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #83 12:09PM
the photopass plus - JessiBelle22  78.4 #83 12:10PM
Not worth it, take your own camera, have them take pix for you. Plus what indy says - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 10:54AM
I like the fact that I could actually be in a pic but the price is high lol! I was kind of hoping with the photopass that all the rides that take pictures were thrown in, that is one thing that is now deferring me from buying it... - ccmom  187.5 #47 11:19AM
The photo pass photographers will take a picture of your entire family, including you, for you, with your camera. I know a lot if people love PP, but our pictures are never great quality. - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 11:26AM
We have had them every trip and have the time we loose them. - 5disneylovers  1160.9 #6 11:22AM
Is this something new you have to pay for it up front? We take our cameras and we use photo pass then when we come home we decide if there are any that we want. There almost always is a discount of some sort when I get home. - mmddgp  1069.1 #7 11:56AM
This is what I do also. I bring my own camera and use my photopass. When I get home I decide if and what I want to buy from photpass. I usually get a calendar and it has a lot of my pics for a lot less price. - BodinFabFive  26.3 #147 12:33PM
I understand the cost is high, but I am a fan of PP!! :) - mrsincredible  1318.4 #4 12:29PM
We always get the photopass CD-ROM and take our own camera also. We have never had a bad experience. - Ariel42  262.9 #35 12:35PM
We split the pass with my brother in laws family and we took tons of pics but sometimes we had to force the photographers to snap away. Like Indy said, look into this a bit! I actually enjoy taking my own photos and am not limited to photopass spots. A DSLR camera is a good investment if you like taking good quality pics yourself. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #24 1:01PM
Okay thanks all for your input! I appreciate it, I will try what Indy says since I finally understand it lol, even though I have a hard time searching for things sometimes ( me and comp arent the greatest of friends!) I am going to discuss all of these pros over with te hubs an also look at the plus one!! Thank again!! - ccmom  187.5 #47 2:10PM
We do both Photopass and our own camera.  In the past I’ve bought a few of the pictures, but this last time, I made a calendar through Photopass.  What’s great is that you can upload your pictures as well to be included in the calendar. - TheGrumpies  288.6 #1020 3:07PM
Okay that's pretty cool!! I think that might be the route I take. - ccmom  187.5 #47 5:58PM
OK, Indy..  you're gonna have to give me some more clues, cuz I can't decipher this code talk.  LOL - mrsincredible  1318.4 #4 6:37PM
Are you saying you can actually get PP for free somehow? And, there's a site that tells you how? If not, I am WAY off base, and still can't find it when I google it. haha - mrsincredible  1318.4 #4 6:42PM
I can email you the details of what you are seeking ;) - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 7:02PM
Check your email :) - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 7:08PM
I'm confused to - nodell111  166.4 #54 7:10PM
This is what happens when I watch too much Doctor Who. Um. OK. Google. Photopass. Free. Put those into a complete sentence and you'll be there. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 7:12PM
Ok thanks - nodell111  166.4 #54 7:28PM
Huh, I'm not sure what I think about that. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1450.4 #3 7:47PM
If we get decide to go with the photopass we buy it before our trip and get the discount. Then we get as many pics as possible. Last trip (after editing) we had over 1,000) photos. What will we do with 1,000 photos you ask? I have no idea, but we wanted to get our money's worth. There is a way to download the photos for "free" if you search the Internet. - toogrumpy  142.4 #61 7:09PM
Okay I will have to become one with my computer to try and just do that then... - ccmom  187.5 #47 7:24PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  155.8 #2682 3:57PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105893 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6447.1 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127530 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3567 1:02PM
Ours is blank too with no plans anytime soon. That's why I come to ☺️☺️☺️ - DisneyMom13  312.5 #868 7:30PM
