We are going on the DVC Members Only Cruise in September for the first time. It's also our first Disney Cruise. I saw that you can pre-purchase photo credits. I was wondering how much the photos are if you don't pre-purchase. Thanks!!

Welcome home! I love hearing from fellow Disney Vacation Club members, especially those that are about to set sail on a Disney Cruise!
Although there is not a discount for pre-purchasing, the "Photos Your Way" packages are a super convenient way allocate your photo budget ahead of time, without any risk because they are fully refundable. The savings comes by purchasing larger quantities of "credits". Currently a 8x10 photo would require 2 credits, whereas the 6x8 photos require 1 credit. During my last sailing the package rates were:
- Select (40 Credits) $249
- Premium (30 Credits) $199
- Choice (20 Credits) $149
- Value (10 Credits) $89
You save money by purchasing a package, as opposed to just picking up a photo and paying for them as you go. Without a package the rates are currently:
- 6x8 = $12.95 per print
- 8x10 = $19.95 per print
- 5x7 = two for $19.95
The nice thing about this is that if, for instance, you purchase the Choice package, but then determine you have more photos that you love than credits available, you can simply upgrade to a larger package. Likewise, should you find that you don't have as many photos as you allocated for, they can downgrade your package (or refund altogether if that makes more sense).
Hope this helps!
