Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi MP! Trying to decide on PhotoPass+ or CD. Taking 2.5 DS, he can't go on most of the rides included. Planning to do 3 character dining @ TH, CP, and GG. Are these all included? Or would the restaurants be on the CD but not the rides? Thanks you guys rock

- Hi Holly,
Thanks for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am happy to hear that you are looking at using Disney's PhotoPass options. For my family, the deciding factor always comes down to the extra photo opportunities available at dining locations and attractions. Attraction and Dining Photos are available at select locations, however if you aren't planning on taking advantage of these experiences, Disney's PhotoPass Archive Disc may be your best choice (as opposed to Disney's PhotoPass+). Attraction and Photo Imaging Packages from dining locations photos will be added to your PhotoPass Account if you have Disney's PhotoPass+ or if you purchase the individual Photo Imaging Packages. So in other words if you do not have Disney's PhotoPass+ you must purchase the Photo Imaging Package from the Dining Location in order for those photos to be added to your PhotoPass Account. From your three Character Dining experiences, the only location that offers a Photo Imaging Package is Tusker House Restaurant, provided your reservations is for lunch or dinner.
If it were me, I would personally pre-order the Disney PhotoPass Archive Disc instead of the PhotoPass+. If you have your heart set on the Photo Imaging Package from Tusker House, you could always purchase this photo, or even ask the PhotoPass Photographer to take the photo with your personal camera as well.
I hope my answer helped Holly. Please let me know if you have any other questions concerning Disney's PhotoPass options, or anything else as you continue to plan. I would love to hear from you again.
