This will be our second time using the pre-paid service. I find the pre-order$100 price a good deal for all the extra Disney pics we get beyond our own shots. Our kids are still young and I want to capture all the extra pics of the BBB and the Pirate’s League and all the Characters etc, without always being behind the camera. I like being able to add all the boarders on, and then I can print the photos from our local store very inexpensively and use the pics for gifts for family etc.
You can also add [U]some[/U] of the ride photos and some of the dining photos (Cinderella’s Royal Table) to your disk for the ability to print additional copies later.
When I have the pre-order service, we make sure to take advantage of every photo opportunity that we can during our stay. Last year, after adding borders to some pics, I ended up with 500 shots on my pre-paid disk.
In previous years I’ve ordered only a few shots and paid up to $50, so for us, I find this a bargain.
If our kids were older and not into as many Character visits, or if it were just my husband and I, then I probably wouldn’t bother with it.
