II. Digital Photos
Reserving Digital Photo Packages Pre-Cruise
You may reserve a digital photo package pre-cruise, and that digital photo package will be added to your folio during sailing. Your digital photo package will contain photos that include at least one member of the purchasing stateroom. Families traveling in more than one stateroom where the occupants are the children (20 and under) of the purchasing stateroom can be linked, however you must notify a crew member at Shutters Photography Shop once onboard. Orders will be ready and waiting for use on the photo kiosks located in Shutters Photography Shop or the Disney Cruise Line Photos website, where available, when the cruise starts. You should visit Shutters Photography Shop or the Disney Cruise Line Photos website, where available, at least a few times prior to the end of the cruise to view photos and ensure all images are all captured in your account. You may cancel pre-cruise orders online up to 3 days prior to the cruise departure or onboard before the end of your cruise, provided that such orders will be cancelled only if you have not downloaded any digital photos while onboard.
Purchasing and Use of Digital Photos Onboard
By purchasing a digital photo through a photo kiosk or the Disney Cruise Line Photos website, where available, and outside of a photo package, you are agreeing to purchase the digital photo, removing the security watermark from the digital photo and making the digital photo available through the Onboard Download website, on a photo kiosk or the Disney Cruise Line Photos website, in either case where available, for immediate download to your Internet-enabled device, as described below. Digital photos purchased for download cannot be cancelled, modified or returned; therefore sales are final and non-refundable.
Guests will not be able to purchase digital photos post-cruise.
Onboard Download Website, where available
On select ships, after you purchase a digital photo, you will be able to download that photo via the Onboard Download website. Digital photos can only be downloaded to an Internet-enabled portable device (laptop, tablet or smartphone) while you are onboard the ship. If digital photos are downloaded from the Onboard Download website, no refunds for the digital photo or digital photo package will be permitted. An access code is provided to each stateroom to use during the cruise so that you and your family members can access digital photos through the Onboard Download website. You and your family members with access to the photo kiosk should not share this access code with anyone else and are solely responsible for the security of the access codes provided.
Disney Cruise Line Photos Website, where available
On select ships, you will be able to review, purchase and download photos via the Disney Cruise Line Photos website. Digital photos can only be reviewed, purchased and downloaded to an Internet-enabled portable device (laptop, tablet, or smartphone) while you are onboard the ship and while on DCL-Guest WiFi. If digital photos are downloaded from the Disney Cruise Line Photos website, no refunds for the digital photo or digital photo package will be permitted.
Access to the Disney Cruise Line Photos website is granted to each stateroom guest upon verification of your personal cruise itinerary information, including your first name, last name, date of birth, and your stateroom number. Upon login, you will be able to access your photos to view and purchase. You may also purchase and redeem digital photo packages, or redeem pre-purchased package entitlements. Purchases require the creation and verification of a Purchase PIN. Guests under the age of 13 may not access the Disney Cruise Line Photos website.
Refunds Policy: Digital Photo “Unlock” Credits
Once purchased, all digital photo “unlock” credits cannot be refunded, even if only used in part. Once a photo has been unlocked it is available for download. For any further inquiries about your purchase please contact our support via email at email@example.com or open a ticket via Contact Us at disneycruise.disney.go.com/help/email/.
Downloading Your Purchased Photos Post-Cruise
Digital photos and digital photo packages purchased onboard can be downloaded, and pre-purchased package entitlements can be redeemed, post-cruise at disneycruise.disney.go.com/photos/. Online registration is required. For the avoidance of doubt, digital photos and digital photo packages are not available for purchase post-cruise.
You must claim your photos before they expire. Digital photos in your account will expire pursuant to the Photo Expiration Policy, below. Expired photos will no longer be available.
For any further inquiries about downloading your photos post-cruise, please contact our support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or open a ticket via Contact Us disneycruise.disney.go.com/help/email/.
Digital Photo Resolution
Digital photos are provided in resolutions that provide 300 dpi printing quality and with aspect ratios that are optimized to be printed as 4x6, 6x8 or 8x10 sizes depending on the location at which the photo is captured, as determined by Disney. Changing a digital photo to a different aspect ratio may cause cropping of borders and a loss of detail. Standard JPEG photo compression is used to minimize file sizes while keeping quality high. Digital photos may range in megabyte size from 1MB to 6MB depending on the photo event and color detail (e.g., backdrop, lighting) contained in the digital photo. Digital and printed photos include custom borders and artwork, which cannot be removed.
Checking your photos
If there you are aware of missing or damaged photos, please contact Guest Communication via email at email@example.com or open a ticket via Contact Us at disneycruise.disney.go.com/help/email/ within 30-days of disembarkation. If no contact is made to DCL Guest Communication within 30 days of debarkation, you will not be able to obtain a refund and photos from onboard the ship cannot be recovered.
III. Photo Prints
Photo Prints Onboard
Photo prints ordered through the onboard kiosks must be picked up no earlier than the time advised on screen at the time of purchase. Due to international customs regulations, physical prints will not be sent post-cruise if there is a failure to pick up the prints onboard. If contact is not made via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by opening a ticket via Contact Us at disneycruise.disney.go.com/help/email/ within 30 days of debarkation, any qualification for a full or partial refund is void and photos from onboard the ship cannot be recovered.
All photo prints picked up onboard must be inspected and proofed by the purchaser while onboard; and any concerns must be addressed while onboard with a crew member in Shutters Photography Shop. No post-cruise refunds are available for photo prints picked up onboard due to damages, defects, errors or quality concerns.
IV. Photo Gift Products (Including Photo Gift Products Delivered Post-Cruise)
With respect to photo gift products such as photo books or albums, specialty prints, gallery wraps, etc. offered directly by us, receipt of your order does not guarantee that we can supply the selected photo gift products to you.

We reserve the right to request proof of damage, defect, error or quality concern in the form of photos, return of photo gift products to us for inspection and/or other methods as we may direct in our sole discretion.
You must contact Guest Support for any photo gift product ordered onboard and intended for post-cruise delivery if you have not received that photo gift product within the timeframe provided at the time of your order; provided, however, that any such contact must be made no later than 3 months from the disembarkation date of the cruise in order for any refund to be considered for any lost or undelivered photo gift product. Please contact Guest Support via email at email@example.com or raising a ticket via Contact Us at disneycruise.disney.go.com/help/email/ within the timeframe referenced above in order for any lost or undelivered photo gift product claim to be evaluated.
