Disposable camera developing past 'expiration' date...

This is my first visit to this forum...we're going through renovations and just unearthed (from the depths of a cabinet) a bag of used disposable cameras. My now-5-year-old daughter went through a phase around age 3 and 4 of carrying one of those everywhere and taking pictures of who-knows-what. I obviously stashed them away one day and forgot about them. Most of them say "process by" a date in 2007. Any chance they'd actually develop (in which case I'll take them to BJs or such), or are they definitely duds now? (My daughter now uses our snap-and-shoot digital camera, and takes pretty good pictures! So there's a chance that some cute stuff is on these...probably some from right after we brought her baby brother home.)

You'll never know until you develop them.
Try one roll to start.
I've developed 8 year old exposed film and
got good results.

Yeah, I've developed years-old exposed film and disposable cameras ("Where'd this come from??") with no problem.
