Confession time: I had thought about doing “What D23 announcement are you most excited about?” but by Saturday night, I knew that there was no way to fit all possible options in a week’s worth of polls! Instead, I thought it best to go with something completely different.

On the Disney Cruise Line ships, a private photography company handles the professional photographs on board. From the “Just take my picture so I can get on the ship” embarkation photo to the “Wow, we all clean up good” formal night pictures and everything in between, it is possible to get a variety of pictures taken during your cruise. One drawback is that these photos don’t come cheap. A single photo can run you $15-20, and packages can run several hundred dollars. Yet photos do provide a great way to keep memories for future years.

This week we’re asking:

When you take a Disney Cruise, do you buy the professional photos taken on board?

  • No photos for me (46%, 95 Votes)
  • Maybe a couple pics (38%, 79 Votes)
  • I'll take a whole package! (16%, 33 Votes)

Total Voters: 207

The poll is open here and on Twitter, and we’ll have your results on the blog next week.


  1. On our last Disney cruise in March, I pre-purchased the photo package, and I definitely got my money’s worth. We got more than 150 photos taken, both portraits and candids, so we ended up getting all those digitally, which breaks down to less than $1 per photo. I was also able to print any of my photos I wanted on board for only $5, while other people on board who wanted even just one photo had to pay $20. I made a photo book and a calendar with our photos and it is nice to be able to share them all on social media. To me, it is well worth it. I think photos are the best souvenir.

  2. Why have their been so many Ask It posts focused on DCL? The minutiae of cruises (even Disney cruises) is getting a little ridiculous. Are you guys at Ask It all just really huge fans? Did you just go on a DCL cruise? What am I missing?

    • Thanks for the question! If I’m counting correctly, since Ask It started, there have been 15 surveys about WDW, 5 “miscellaneous surveys” (Pin Trading, trip to Universal, How often you vacation, how much on souvenirs, whether preferred rooms are worth it), and 4 about DCL. So about 17% of the Ask It questions have been about DCL.

      But yes, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a big DCL fan — and I did cruise recently. ๐Ÿ™‚
