We once had a stroller taken while at Disneyland. We went about our day and while waiting for the parade a family walked by with our stroller! Luckily I slipped my business card in the handle.

I told the CM about the card and the family promptly gave it back.ย  - fvbmermaid   237.8 #1608 8-31-15 3:08PM Like  Reply

At WDW last week, the visa rep in the photo pass shop told me the meet and greet in Epcot was extended to 1-7pm. I would never have gone over there if she hadn't! We got 2 characters, goofy and...I don't remember. ๐Ÿ˜œ Here, I've been able to get prints of any photo pass picture, not just the chase one, but that may depend on the cm. - bluefairy   643.8 #356 3-16-13 2:24PM Like  Reply
When I did this I could only get a print of the Chase day so it must depend on the CM. Thanks for the tip! - LilSterner  5828.4 #25 3-16-13 2:42PM
I was explicity told that I could only get my Chase pic printed last week (all my pics were on the same Photopass). However, they were nice enough to let me print 2 Chase pics from 2 different days, since I forgot to do it the week before and still had the voucher. - JustCantWait  1148.5 #178 3-16-13 2:57PM
If you are a cardholder can you bring the other guests in your party in with you aswell even if they are not cardholders? - lohofosho   785.0 #278 3-16-13 3:00PM Like  Reply
Yes. Only one member needs to be a card holder. - LilSterner  5828.4 #25 3-16-13 3:04PM
