Photo pass or not to photo pass that is the question? We will be visiting for the first time. We'll have 4-full days and half. We'll also be attending a Halloween party one of those evenings. Is it worth the expense? Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

Tough to say. All Photopass photographers will take pictures on your camera too. But I have loved having the PP on my AP. The pro pics are much better, especially the night shots. Does your family enjoy the character meet ups? How much is the mark up if you wait until after your trip? Maybe you just buy a few pics, rather than all of them?  - JenGwen323  2066.7 #85 6:50AM
You only save $20 with advance purchase, per website.  - JenGwen323  2066.7 #85 6:55AM
Do you have the WDW ANNUAL PASS??? If yes. The new pass option got the photopass downlod available... - otilegna  2805.9 #53 7:52AM
And like JenGwen323 said, photopass photos are better at night shots, as they got a tripod to stabilize and a better flash (as long as their setting is set right) - otilegna  2805.9 #53 7:56AM
I don't have an AP. It's $149 v. $169 later. I heard that if u purchase it in advance the photographers are more likely to take more pics. I'm leaning toward buying it. What the heck, right? Thanks for your input. I have yet to get a great night shot. - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  113.4 #3455 12:30PM

My poor baby boy isn't doing well..I hate that I'm 800 miles away from. He wasn't getting up for anything they were having to pick him to move him. My MIL took him to the vet two days ago, he is diabetic his blood sugar was almost 500 he has a UTI, but they find a tumor on this liver. I have to take him back in on Monday to talk about his blood test. I'm so scared. Please pray for my baby😒

I'm so sorry to hear this Lisa, you both are in my thoughts and I am sending tons of pixie dust for a good answer on Monday! ((HUGS)) - DizneyGirl  1104.2 #8 11:12AM

Good morning MELISSA beautiful picture of the girls. I do as well. I feel like that one commercial from awhile back where the kid is just hanging in a picture within his moms media saying hey get me out of here!! Then she gets some pictures printed and puts them on her wall. Yep that's me but I haven't got any out in a while. Lol. The thing is I have a scrapbook room with all the stuff to do it but haven't in years. I gotta get busy. My cousin has a scrap booking home party comp and says she'll come out and help me and she has weekend retreats to do pages or books, I just don't make the time for it but I do love doing it. Too bad we didn't live closer, we could do it together.Β  - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 5:10AM

Wahoo. Double digit time✨✨. So excited for you. Before you know it it will be fast pass time. We just got back so no count down for me yet and I'm not quit sure we normally go in March ( hubbie and I) and grandkids trip in aug but this trip threw us back some financially so I'm not sure. But I will be living through everyone's trips and pictures on here and dl side. Happy planning. What dinning have you chosen so far and where are you staying.  - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 6:59AM
Your trip looked like an absolute blast!!  We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside, and j got ADRs at Hollywood & Vine (Minnie's Holiday Dine Fantasmic! Package), BOG, Monseur Paul, Cinderella's Royal Table, and we have ticket for Mickey's Christmas Party with the dessert package!  This will be our first couple's trip (late honeymoon) and our first time at WDW so we are going all out!   - AngiMouse  155.2 #2720 9:42AM
That is so awesome. Congrats on the late honeymoon. Enjoy your time together. We went for the very first time last year in December and loved it. We have a very good time when we go for sure, the kids love it and we love seeing themEnjoy it as well. We had a few not so good things happen but all is well and I am grateful for that. The dessert party with the christmas party sounds so fun. Since it is your honeymoon, if you have an evening where you are not doing anything, I'm going to suggest the sleigh ride at  fort wilderness. It run @80. It lasts @ 1/2 hour and you ride through the camp grounds and some of the campers have their sites all lite up. Super cute. They also have carriage rides at port Orleans, don't know how much but I wanted to do that and never got a chance. Your trip will be amazing as well   - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 10:11AM
Thanks for the congrats!  We have never gone away by ourselves for so long and are very excited!  I definitely want to look into the sleigh rides!  What a romantic way to spend time together!  We will be there for 10 days so I'm sure we will have time.  - AngiMouse  155.2 #2720 2:32PM
10 days is perfect to be there. Yes you should be able to to a lot. Have fun.  - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 2:51PM

i love when we have 10 days. I do two parks then a down day which could be the pool or Disney springs or just going and visiting other resorts. During the holidays the resorts are decorated amazingly - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 7:48PM
I really want to try and take a down day, but I know myself and I think that I will just go, go, go the whole time.  LoL especially since t is my first. - AngiMouse  155.2 #2720 6:23AM
I know I say the same thing. But our down days really army "down" days because we are still going but we do other things like Disney springs( it's beautiful) and has a lot of new shopping and dinning. Or visiting the delux resorts. They all have something to offer are so beautifully decorated for the holidays. Animal kingdom has the savannah you can go out on and peek at a few animals like giraffes and zebras, they have an amazing fire pit outback you can sit at. Or you can do the monorail crawl which is to get on and stop at each of the resort stops so you can see the hotel and have a drink at their bar and hop back on to the other. Either way if you go go go or have a down day it will be amazing.  - mmddgp  1261.4 #6 7:31AM

We did all the night time festivities at animal kingdom. Loved the night safari, street fare all the lights lit throughout, the lighting of the tree and the jungle book show. The colors and the music of the show were great and the performers did awesome. The projections on the water were ok. I think it would held the kids attention more if there were characters they recognized on the stages. Still  More...

I too loved the nighttime safari and the Tree of Life. We didn't end up seeing the Jungle Book Show,  My Son Didn't Want to.  - disneygrandma1  837.1 #9 12:08AM
