    Thumbs up Let The Memories Begin: Free Photopass pictures

    So I know most people aren't too hot on the "Let the Memories Begin" campaign... and I'm admittedly not a huge fan of it either. However, I do think the new show will be cool.
    But that's all beside the point.

    You all probably know that the main focus of the show is "you!" And to have guests star in the show, special Photopass photographers are placed in key "memorable" locations to capture photos to be used in the show.
    My girlfriend and I were in the parks on January 10th getting our traditional photo in front of the Partners statue for that visit, when a Photopass photographer approached us and asked if we want to have our photos in the new show debuting January 287th.
    Of course we said yes, because, why not?

    He then proceeded to take photos. He took a few of us in a traditional smiling pose, he then had us to a couple prince/princess poses.
    For the first one I flexed while my girlfriend did the princess thing (no idea what to call this).
    And for the second one he has us pose like Prince Philip and Princess Aurora do in parades.

    We then asked if we could look at these photos online, and they said that one of the perks of having our photos taken is that we get a special Photopass card to redeem online where we can download all of the photos we just took for free.
    Heck yeah, free photos!

    So I redeemed the code and a few days later I received an e-mail saying that I had a "gift" waiting for me. A link brought me to the website where I was able to download all 7 high-res photos of us, no strings attached.


    So here's 3 of the photos we got (the others were just multiple shots of the same poses):








    And then of course they gave us the whole "you could see your photos on Small World!" spiel... but what are the chances of that? As exciting as it would be to see our photos on Small World, I feel like the chances that our photos will actually be up there on the day we are are pretty slim.

    But anyway, after this experience I've found myself being much more excited about the "Let the Memories Begin" campaign than I was before. It was a fun little experience and I think it's extremely awesome that Disney is giving guests free copies of their photos as a "Thank You".


    Now, I'd like to assume that we aren't the only MiceChatters that got our photos taken for this campaign. So if you've gotten your photos taken as well, share your photos! If not, provide your input on how this potentially changes how you feel about LTMB.

    That's really cool. It's great that you took "Fun" poses. Love them.

    It's also great that you get them free. The funny part is that as I am reading your post, I am listening to the soundtrack from the new Let the Memories Begin show as it plays in Florida.

    The only good thing about the Photopass people is that (at least, I assume they still do this) they take pictures for free with your camera as well.

    The free pictures thing is nice, though. My opinion of this whole thing just went up half an inch. Of course, since it's about a mile down, that's not much.

    Thanks I went ahead and fixed it.


    Yeah I'm still remaining fairly skeptical about the whole thing. But I'm reserving my final judgment until I see the show this weekend. I'm a HUGE fan of the building projections thing they did during the World of Color roadshow, and if it's anything like that, then I'm in.

    I just hope we don't get the fugly Park entrance that WDW got.

    Can't put down FREE! People were not happy that after a couple of years of promotions that had free perks (the freebies handed out during year of a million dreams, getting in on your birthday, getting in for volunteering). This is not nearly as cool as the previous giveaways but it's SOMETHING. Glad to hear it.

    PS you two are adorable.

    MK got a decorative sign to promote the "Memories Campaign" which is really not necessary.

    You can see a pic of it in the WDW section, I kind of like it but it should be somewhere else.

    If we get that here, I hope it's hanging on the M&F Parking Structure or along the tram route.

    Re: Let The Memories Begin: Free Photopass pictures

    Thanks for the photo compliments, guys.

    I'm hoping more people get some of these photos to share as well so it becomes more of a sharing thread. It's always fun to see others' photos.

    Yeah it's not an extremely poorly-made banner. But it doesn't really fit at the entrance to the park. It's a bit of an eyesore.
