UPDATE: Disney’s PhotoPass PhotoCD Pre-Order Offer No Longer Available to Public

The big PhotoPass news keeps on coming and this one is sure to disappoint even more people than the last item we reported about the extension fees.

A Stitch Kingdom reader has made us aware that the link to pre-order PhotoPass is no longer working. Sure enough, the page now automatically gets re-directed to this page which specifically affirms the already established policy that the offer is meant solely for those who are invited to participate by email.

On one hand, we do hope that Disney’s PhotoPass reconsiders this popular option, but on the other hand, the policy has officially always been limited to those who were invited, so it was only a matter of time before the next step was taken to prevent the public at large from accessing the offer.  Afterall, it really did make no sense for PhotoPass to offer the PhotoCD at the regular price (let alone increase it) while continuously allowing anyone to order at the discounted rate as well. This is also not the first time PhotoPass has attempted to restrict the offer from the public: initially the page was able to be indexed by search engines such as Google, but the page was eventually modified to prevent that from occurring.

UPDATE: It appears that the offer is being extended to anyone with a Walt Disney World vacation package. Guests are reporting getting a link in email to pre-order the PhotoCD at a discounted rate or receiving a special PhotoPass card along with their mailed package materials. It appears the discounted rate is now approximately $120 for pre-ordering.

  1. Brad, thanks for the update. Sadly it appears the offer is NOT being offered to anyone with a WDW vacation package. I have been communicating via email and phone calls to the Photopass Support Team. They had advised me that in spite of having a confirmed reservation and package booked through WDW central reservations, if I do not receive an email from Disney Destinations with the offer then I cannot pre-order the CD. Disappointed, yes but I guess I just saved myself $99. Judging by the many threads on various Disney fan boards, there are a lot of unhappy people out there over the pre-order issue.

  2. First, as a 'few' things have changed since this was first posted, I
    advise anyone reading this to visit
    http://stitchkingdom.com/disneysphotopass for the full details on
    the pre-purchase offer.

    Second,all I can do is promise that the offer has not been rescinded. I
    can only suggest that you call back and ask again. If you still have
    problems, you can use the contact link at the top of this site and I'll
    see what I can do to facilitate.

    People are definitely upset and with good reason, but it's just an
    unfortunate misunderstanding. All we can do is try to spread the word
    that the offer is still there for those who are staying on site.

  5. Disney photo pass preorder: I also had a problem getting to order but I got on the pre order site, signed in and then went to shopping cart and the offer was there for 99.95. See if this helps anyone staying on the resort.
