Today is Walt Disney's birthday, so what a better way then to be at a Disney Mommyblogger event. I am here to hear about their holiday celebrations. Below are some notes from the presentation, there is lots more to talk about, but for now here are some liveblog notes. Updates to follow, along with adding the names of those that spoke.....
Danielle Dubois is one half of the Disneyland Resort Ambassador Team.
She is talking about the Disney's PhotoPass Service
(DisneyPhotoPass.com). It is a new service a Disney that provides photographers around the park that will take family pictures at all the major spots - then the pictures can be redeemed online.
What is the service? The first step is to take a picture with the
photographers and get a PhotoPass cards. They have photographers in all
sort of locations around the park. They take pictures then associate
with that card. Guests have 30 days to claim photos online. Then you
have 30 days to decide what you want to order - and share with friends
and family. You can edit photos by adding borders (zoom, rotate or
adjust). You can purchase prints or order .jpgs.
You can also use your own pictures for the PhotoPass service. Some of
the products are holiday cards, cups, paper weights. All can be found
How to sign up? On the top right corner login (to DisneyPhotoPass.com) or create a new account
with your email. Your card will have a " 16 digit code" that you enter
in. Once you pull up your photos you have three different types of
photo to look at: Photo's the photographer took, photo's you took or
photos from the Disney gallery.
Once you choose which photo is your favorite, you can edit your photo
(zoom, adjust, rotate, add borders). At the bottom is the slide chooser
so you can choose which photo's you want to edit. You can log in
anytime during that period to see your photo album. Photo products tab
on the site will show the products available, including the newest
which is a calender (you start your calender on any month and control
the calender layout). There are also photo greeting cards and
You can name products with a "project name". The checkout is secured
shopping and they accept any credit cards. If there are special offers,
it will be applied at checkout.
Ride photos like splash mountain are not included in the ProjectPass card yet.
Disney said, don't be shy - go up to the PhotoPass photographer and ask
them to take a picture. And ask them what "magic" they can put in the
picture. PhotoPass cards can be used at Disneyland or DisneyWorld
(they are on one system). You can combine pictures on other families
You can send a free "snowglobe" and will show up on the
recipient's screen (with snow and magical music). Bloggers can link to
it in their blog posts. You can also send a Disneyland Resort e-card to friends and family for the holiday.
