    Disney Photobooks

    I looked at the photobooks on the Disney Photpass website. They are so cute, but $80. I can justify the book since I did the photoshare. I wanted to know if anyone knew of any other photobook website that I can have Disney pages for less $$ before I order from Photopass. Thank you

    I am not familiar with the Disney photopass photobooks, but I would think you could upload Dinsey clip art and incorporate them into any photobook from the variety of vendors out there.

    I'm not a fan of the Snapfish ones because they are all "Princess" or "Cars" and you can't mix and match themes.

    Here is one I made (with both photopass picutres and my own pictures) on Adorama: http://www.adoramapix.com/app/showbo...2013-Revision/

    Dependent on your skill level with desktop publishing programs, you can create any kind of book from scratch and then upload it to a variety of services, using .pdf.

    I've used Blurb to do this, and it works great. Pricing is competitive with other sites: http://www.blurb.com/pricing, and I think their paper and binding quality is slightly better than Snapfish.

    We used scrapbook paper for the characters to sign (http://www.amazon.com/Diecuts-View-P...n+a+time+paper); then I scanned the signed pages and uploaded them as jpg's.

    I am not skilled iwth desktop publishing programs, but I found the Adorma editor to be quite easy to use and powerful. I think most sites have a pretty good editor these days (I wasn't impressed one time with the Shutterfly editor I used when Ihad a coupon for a free photobook, but it still sufficed).

    I heard good things about Blurb in comparison with Adorama. Both places cost somewhat more than shutterfly/snapfish/etc. but also give you better quality. I also had a 35%-off coupon for Adorama which helped.

    Sadly, I don't actually have my photobook yet because of 2 transposed digits on the address. This has caused it to bounce around the US Postal system (including getting lost and then re-found) for the past 3 weeks. It's been entertaining/frustratin.

    I got this app for our iPad SignMyI, it looks like you can already have photos and autographs digitized. We'll see in Sept.

    I think this app looks much like it would be more clunky than just getting signatures and scanning them when you get home. Also, would the character hold your iPad to sign? Seems like it would be easy for them to drop unless they're a face character. Plus for furries, being able to see what they're doing is difficult, I don't know how well they're going to be able to see a screen, especially in direct sunlight.

    Kevin-great book! We were there at the same time, but sadly I've only gotten a single page done. That you're finished is impressive!

    Thanks for the compliments! My 35%-off coupon expired on 2/28, so I had some inventive to get things done. :)

    That book is amazing Kevin. Did you use your own pictures as the background?

    Most of the pictures are mine, but a few are not. The shot of Maurice's cottage was from the Photopass CD of stock pictures. the cover photos and the shot of Beast's castle at night were purchased from Tom Bricker (a terrific photographer who runs the disneytouristblog.com).

    I wanted a Disney themed photobook for our pics too and also couldn't find any other company that could do them well. I don't count Snapfish since you can't mix and match the characters and they don't have the Fab Five. So I bit the bullet and bought the Photopass one. It is a nice album...not really $80 nice but really pretty nice. The only other option I can think of would be to scrapbook it with Disney paper yourself but that is expensive and time consuming. For me, it was worth it to bite the bullet and get the Photopass photobook. I will say that the website itself is easy to use.

    This is a very useful topic. I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

    There are a lot of useful sites about a photo and photo editing, my favorite blog is http://fixthephoto.com/ for many years I have been using their manuals and always find interesting ideas for creativity there!

    I was told by a Disney Photpass rep that Shutterfly now has a contract with Disney and some similar pages available via photopass is also available within Shutterfly.

    Yes, Shutterfly does have a Disney themed photo book that is Fab Five I believe. At a minimum it's Mickey and Minnie. Not Princess. I started a photobook there. And that's all I can say about that. Hahaha!

    Yes they have for a few years. I had made a book each year for my kids. I used the icons and graphics they have then put pictures of us meeting the characters the previous years. It is always a big hit with the characters and the cast members. They love flipping through the books.

    I put the picture we take with Tinkerbell each year in as well to show my kids growth with the year under. (they wear the same style shirt in the meet) They all love seeing the pictures of them growing. Peter Pan even remembered us from the previous year due to our book and spent lots of time with my kids. Tinkerbell always does the same due to the book.
