We’ve known about this for a few days now and were awaiting official word from Disney’s PhotoPass but as word is getting out (and we have been receiving multiple emails from our readers — for which we graciously thank you), we feel it’s only fair to share the news with all our readers.
For at least the second time in PhotoPass history, PhotoMovie is no longer available for purchase. The last time it was not made available was when PhotoCD and PhotoMovie were the only products and the online presence was going through a major overhaul. With the product removed completely from the products list and the help section listing the product as being discontinued, it doesn’t appear as though the PhotoMovie is destined to return any time soon.
For the most complete guide anywhere to Disney’s PhotoPass, bar-none, see our Definitive Guide.
Disney’s PhotoPass is the premiere photo service when it comes to capturing memories at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, allowing you to bring home memories of the magic for years to come and there’s no better time of year to make new memories than the holidays.
We are thrilled to be able to offer five of our fans a special holiday gift pack from Disney’s PhotoPass, each consisting of a PhotoOrnament and a 20-pack of Standard PhotoCards and just to make it that much more special, free standard shipping*.
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.
The official storage policy for Disney’s PhotoPass photos is that they will be available online for editing and ordering for at least 30 days after being added to one’s account. Afterwards, deletions were sure to occur (although the occasional rogue photos may have managed to escape their fate a la Logan’s Run). From the very beginning, many users had struggled to complete all of the editing within the 30 day timeframe and with additional enhancements to both the website and the actual PhotoPass system itself over the years, the 30 day period has proven to become increasingly difficult for many customers.
Disneyland Resort now offers Summer Nightastic! branded PhotoPass cards that include a discount for either either $10 off the PhotoCD when purchased online, or free shipping.
(and if anyone can send me a decent scan of one, I’d greatly appreciate it!)
Due to extremely popular demand and hoping to fill some of the voids found with the Disney PhotoPass PhotoCD, Disney’s PhotoPass is introducing a couple of options including a CD that includes all of the stock photos you will find available for use in products other than the PhotoCD on disneyphotopass.com is now available for purchase.
For an unbelievably low price of just $39.95, you can own over 300 hi-res images of Walt Disney World stock photos including many not available on the site.
Purchasing the Photo Gallery CD grants you a license to unlimited personal use of the images, but unlike traditional Disney’s PhotoPass photos, you are prohibited from distributing the photos.
The Definitive Guide to Disney’s PhotoPass is long overdue for a facelift and I’m shamelessly asking for your support – especially if you’ve found the site to be helpful to you in the past.
I’d like to replace the current magic shot samples with larger, unmasked versions. So if anyone can contribute their magic shot photos to the site, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’m even welcoming the same magic shot multiple times from different families as I will be able to display varying examples in a couple of different ways. If you are willing to help, please email them directly to [email protected]. Please make sure these are the full size images however and not copies directly off the PhotoPass website. Also preferably without any additional borders added (but any are welcome).
