Disney Photo Question
Sam Santilli, Photographer, Photo Editor
Philippi | WV | USA | Posted: 2:40 PM on 03.09.15
->> One of my best customers is heading to Disney in Florida in a month, and called me with a question about photos while there. I have never been to Disney, but here is her question:
Disney offers a photo image package where you can get all of your photos downloaded for free when you get back home. The cost is $169.00 for all of the images.
So...if you have gone to Disney, is that a good price? They are staying for 5 days and are staying in a Disney property. Thanks, Sam

->> I'm not sure about the price. I've never bought photos from them because the photographers from Disney will take photos with your camera right after they take photos with their camera...for free. If they have a camera other than a cell phone, there is no need to purchase photos at all.

->> How can photos be downloaded for "free" when you have to pay $169? Free is free; it is not free if you pay a fee.

As to the $169 being a good deal, how many photos is Disney guaranteeing? Are they high-res or low? A high-res 4x6 is not the same as a high-res 11x14. Is the photographer using flash fill? How does Disney know one family from another when everyone is going down the log flume in the same boat? Are the photos searchable by name or will your client have to go through thousands of images for the few of themselves? What is your client's definition of a good deal? Ten photos for the price or a thousand?

Too many factors to say yes or no.

->> I was just down at Disney in December. We did purchase photo pass package but wish we did more photos with photographers.

To answer some of Doug's questions:
- As far as our experience and reading the info, there is no limit. We have more than 200 photos after my trip.

- Photos taken by Disney people downloaded at 6000 x 4000px. The ride photos were smaller, ranging from 1500px longest dimension to 3000px.

-All the photographers used flash fill. Whether or not they were balancing the light correctly is another story...

- Disney knows who's photos are who by their Magic Bands. The rides scan the bands and get tagged to the person's Magic Band. They are all together at the end of the trip.

- The photos you see are the only ones tagged to your Magic Band. When you get a photographer in the parks to take your photo, they scan your Magic Band after to tag to it.

If you really get as many photos as you can in each park by their photographers, along with the ride photos, I think it would be a good deal. When we got back and looked at the photos, I wish we would have taken more photos with it so I could have left my camera in the hotel.

->> Andrew, thanks for your help! And thanks for making one of my customers love me more! Even at a cheap $5 per image rate, 200 pix comes to $1k of retail for $169.00.
I told her not to expect pro results. Her husband really does not want to haul a DSLR around, he just wants to ride rides,and not worry about their camera getting swiped or damaged on a week long trip to numerous parks and rides.

Even back then I knew that appearing to be a well dressed professional was the key to meeting pretty girls...

->> The photo pass is worth it and with the Magic Bands it is really easy to add the ride photos now, just touch the band to the reader under the photo when you get off the ride. And make sure that they take advantage of the photo pass photographers through out the parks and at character meet and greets. Not having tote any camera at all...priceless. and Hundreds of photos...
