Photos and Photo Packages

Photos and Photo Packages

We typically get the all inclusive photo package which includes all the prints and digital files and most of the time walk away with over $6000 in pictures for under $400 on a 7-night cruise. If you are doing a back-to-back, you will have to buy the photo package for each cruise, but you get a significant discount on the second leg.

Here is the link to the My Cruise Photos webpage, which explains the different packages you can purchase and may answer any questions you still have. My Cruise Photos Webpage for DCL.

Disney photographers are really contracted photographers and not hired through Disney, but nonetheless, they are amazing people with great personalities whose purpose is to make memories for you and your family that will last a lifetime! We have made so many friends through the photography department. Many of them are on repeat cruises and remember us! To me, that's incredible considering how many people they see each year.

They are staffed in the catwalk to the ship to take your pre-cruise picture, in the atrium at all the photo studios, and in the dining rooms in the evenings. From time to time, you might see them in other areas of the ship. One of my favorite photos is on the deck during Club Pirate on Pirate Night.

If you do not see one of your photos in your folder, let the staff at Shutters know and they will find it for you. Sometimes, the photos get placed in the wrong folder. Disney uses facial recognition so sometimes a child might look like your's, which is what happened on our last cruise. They also place thousands of photos into the photo folders each day. They are human and make mistakes. Be gentle! They work so hard!

Do not take photos of your photos. Nothing is more annoying than seeing people trying to steal photos. Either bring your own camera (the photographers do not have an issue using your camera) or buy the photos/photo package.
