photopass plus...... worth the $150? little bit of background: two families, 8 people... 5 days at disney parks...

Nope. You pay that money now. You find out later that 75 percent of the photos are garbage. You should never, I don't care who the company is, you should never prepay for photos. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 8:49AM
Its worth it if you have character dining. Those are not cheap! Or you want pics on rides...again not cheap. Either pay 150 for 7one time photos or get a disc where you can keep then forever and otont from home. Photopass has more pros than cons. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 9:19AM
Considering my way. I'd still say no. But I'll give you the character dining point. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 9:25AM
I agree Indy. We are gonna pass on it this time I think. - amajam  20.8 #169 10:19AM
I've never gotten it. We just take our own photos, but of course they are not nearly as nice as a professional. When I see Indy's, photos, I always wonder why I even bother trying! However, we catch lots of candid shots with the grandchildren if we have cameras. - ally  509.0 #18 12:55PM
Well remember, I take time to set up a shot. That's why a lot of times I go when Marion is working. I can take my time. Fireworks not included I think the longest I waited for a shot (setup included) was about 20 minutes at potc. Might have been at thunder. Can't remember which attraction. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 1:24PM
Yes, I you have to have lots of skill and patience to do what you do! - ally  509.0 #18 3:19PM
If you get the CD with the digital copies then YES it will be worth it! We spent 120 for 4 pics and character dining is like 30 bucks a pop. So its worth it! Plus EVERYONE can be in the pics.*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 7:33AM
We were gonna do the plus so we could get ride photos - amajam  20.8 #169 11:44AM
I say do it and split the cost. There are more pros than cons. Honestly. Prices for ride photos add up very quickly! Heck, you'd probably spend more on just getting ride photos. Might as well go all in and have those and other photos that you can personalize and print whenever you want. That 150 is a one time cost. It just more sense. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 12:46PM
It's a great option to get everyone in the photo, but the CMs will take a photo for you with your camera. I haven't had good luck with the PhotoPass like everyone else does. Most of my photos aren't good enough to pay $150 for, I tried it twice and was disappointed both times. Most of my photos were too dark and many didn't even try to get both girls to look at the camera, so one of them if not both always looked bad :( I'm glad everyone else has had good luck though. - DizneyGirl  959.8 #8 9:55AM
If you are doing alot of character dining and plan to ride all the rides with photo opps, its TOTALLY worth the price!! **The fact that I am disagreeing with Chris for the second time tonight is completely besides the point! ๐Ÿ˜œ - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 5:59PM
I'm cracking up so hard right now. My back hurts. Hahahaha - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 6:01PM
Hahahaha!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - mrsincredible  1316.0 #4 6:28PM
I like that the big ride photos are included! - amajam  20.8 #169 7:45AM
I am glad you asked...hubby REALLY wants to do this, and I feel like its alot of money for a cd of pictures you have to go print on your own. - ncjal  291.6 #28 7:47AM
Trust me. If you plan on character dining and or lots of pics...this way is worth it. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 8:10AM
we aren't doing character dining, but I would probably want to buy the ride photos. - ncjal  291.6 #28 8:29AM
Me and my family always photopass because you can print the photos as many times as you want your not limited to one an you an put boreders on them on the site. - cooldisgrl_CM  156.8 #2653 8:13AM
We just used it for the first time in June and loved it! Yes it's worth it! First time we actually got family pics with me in them! It seems expensive but when u can have 500 pics or more with boarders if u choose, with everyone in the pics, can print all or none and keep them forever, yea it's worth it! - happygma2  78.9 #81 8:20AM
Try disneyphotopass.com It's where many families share one Photopass CD and split the cost of it. I use it every time i go to disney and only pay around 20 dollars for the pics. Check out the site on the details. - athica  12.9 #220 8:48AM
We have the regular one. It's up to you - 5disneylovers  1158.8 #6 9:42AM
we get it every trip and are always happy with our pictures. - Ariel42  262.9 #35 9:50AM
We have character dining, but I really haven't noticed photographers around except near the entrances. How do you find them? - ally  509.0 #18 12:57PM
And how many photos do you usually get? - ally  509.0 #18 12:57PM
If you go for Character Dining every day, go at least 10rides with photos, then the PhotopassPlus is worthy! - otilegna  2692.3 #54 1:29PM
Were gone for the disc 68 photos weve got cant wait to post them on here its gona take me forever. - weslfc  5.2 #417 1:30PM
We did it last year-it was totally worth the money. My husband cannot take any decent pictures so until last year I wasn't in any of our pictures unless they were done by photo pass photographers. I also loved the ride photos and character dining photos. To me it's well worth the money and I'm purchasing one for my trip this year too. - leveretttltl  89.6 #78 4:18PM
Are all the rides that have photo options available for the photopass or just selected rides? We've always got them in DIsneyland and had no problems but getting ride pics sounds quite good because you think of the amount of rides you ride during your holiday and multiply by the amount= savings and unforgettable memories - bubbaschoice  57.8 #100 4:55AM
I agree with Indy, the photos are junk. You can do better with an iPhone; just ask someone to take the group pictures for you. I you want the Photopass people to take shots just look at them later and maybe one or two will be worth buying. - MsMode  30.6 #137 5:12AM
My Photopass Plus pics were awesome! Many shots I would have never gotten myself. Very cute magic shots of my girls, all the ride pics. So nice not having to pay for a pic after every ride. They are very expensive. You just have to try it once and see if its worth it to your family, if not don't use it again. Every family is different - happygma2  78.9 #81 6:19AM
Guess I should mention you can get the photos for free as well (With the exception of ride photos and I believe character dining). But hey, to each their own. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #5 6:43AM
do you mean you can take the pics yourself and therefore they are free? I totally agree!! - ncjal  291.6 #28 9:09AM
No. Chris means that you can use the free photo pass and download the normal pics they take. However, this method excludes rides and character dining. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 9:21AM
OH! Now I understand! Thanks for the clarification! They don't charge for the regular photo pass? - ncjal  291.6 #28 10:15AM
Not the one they give you at check in or at the park =) Once you register it you only have 30 days to purchase photos but Chris knows how to download them to your PC for free =) - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #45 10:28AM
AWESOME...THANK YOU for all the advice and tips...I TRULY appreciate it!! You guys are the best!! - ncjal  291.6 #28 10:51AM
Thank you guys for your advice/suggestions! - amajam  20.8 #169 8:47PM

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 theย android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.ย 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.ย Thanks for reading ย and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127106 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  5755.3 #21 8:10PM
