    Any chance of being able to pay/book for private photosessions prior to park opening?

    Hey there Megan,

    Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so glad you came back to see us and that I get to join my other panelist pals in helping you plan your next trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    While there is not currently a private photo session opportunity at the Disneyland Resort, I do have some tips and tricks to share that will make it feel like you have one!

    When I visit the parks with my family, we typically like to stay at the Disneyland Hotel. When staying at one of the hotels of the Disneyland Resort, you get access to Early Entry, which allows you to enter the parks 30 minutes before the official opening. 

    While most people use this time to fit in a few of the more popular attractions (which I do highly recommend), there are also Disney PhotoPass Photographers out at this time at a few of the most iconic spots. My family and I will often use some of this early entry time to have the PhotoPass photographers capture some shots of us and, in our experience, there hasn't ever been a line. 

    When we've done this, we've felt much less rushed and the photographers are often very open to snapping an extra photo or two as well. Our favorite spot for this is in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle!

    Additionally, we've run into a few characters around the parks right around this Early Entry time and just after park opening. This is such a great time to interact because, again, most people are focused on attractions. Our favorite spot for this has been Avengers Campus where, on a recent visit, we got to have longer conversations with Dr. Strange and Loki and I was able to take lots of pictures. It was so fun for our little guy!

    I hope that's helpful information, Megan! Thanks again for your question, and I hope you have a fantastic trip to the Disneyland Resort.

    Have a Magical Day,
