Are you familiar with Disney’s PhotoPass+? On our last Walt Disney World trip my family stepped it up and tried out the new PhotoPass+ option. What did we think? PhotoPass+ is a great addition to our Disney trips and worth every penny! There are a ton of benefits of adding PhotoPass+ to your upcoming Disney vacation. Some of the benefits included in Disney’s PhotoPass+ are:
- Preorder the PhotoPass+ package 14 days prior to your trip for $149 versus the $199.95 price tag in the parks! (Plus tax where applicable.)
- Disney PhotoPass+ card and lanyard
Chances are that if you are like myself and the other writers here at Chip and Co., you are a Disney Addict. We have yet to find a cure, but the symptoms of this condition are rather obvious. Most likely your own friends and family have pointed them out to you or questioned your sanity a time or two. Still not sure?
Check out my 10 Ways to Know If You’re an Disney Addict: Part 2! If you missed Part 1 check it out here.
1. You can navigate the Disney parks better than you can your own hometown.
2. You are known to randomly break into a Disney song without warning.
3. Visits to other theme parks are just disappointing.

One of the best things about vacationing at Walt Disney World is souvenir shopping – they have so many stores with so many different items that it can be hard to pick just a select few to bring home with you. So if you aren’t sure what kind of souvenirs you should buy, then here are a few questions you should ask yourself:
Will you actually use it at home? Many things seem cool when at the Parks, but be practical – think hard and be realistic about if it will be useful once you get home
Is it too big? size is a factor when purchasing souvenirs, and while those giant stuffed animals or balloons are fun, they may not fit too well into your suitcase. Size is especially important to consider when flying, as you may have to pay a fee for an extra bag or overweight luggage
Is it worth the cost? This kind of goes along with “will you use it at home”, an item is ‘worth it’ if it’s useful, practical, or even if you just love it. Some of the items sold at WDW can be pretty pricey, and if you are like me, you set a souvenir budget, so if one item is going to blow your whole budget, you will definitely want to consider if it’s worth it to you, cost wise
If you are anything like me the answer is a resounding NO! In fact I don’t need any more credit cards! That doesn’t stop every credit card company on earth from sending me a pre-approved credit application once a week. Even Disney Rewards Visa was relentless. The photo of Mickey on the card, designed to draw any Disney Addict in. Oh wait, I can choose from multiple designs? I can even pick a Tinkerbell card! Nope, don’t need it. They can’t make me, I’ve paid off all my cards. I will not repeat the mistakes of my early 20′s.
I remained firm for a year. Shredding every application that came. Mickey’s smiling face cut into a thousand pieces. UNTIL…What? A $50 Disney gift card if I sign up? How did they know I had a trip planned in 3 months? That will come in handy for sure. I will use it towards my trip. That did it, I was done. Magic words…Disney Gift Card. Now I had to open the envelope and see what was involved. Within a few minutes I had my card design picked out (Where Dreams Come True) and the card was on its way. My husband won’t care, at least it’s not the Tink card. I’ll get rid of the Gymboree card, that’s the plan.
Why did I give in? The Disney Rewards Visa has great perks and no annual fee. Here’s the scoop:
