    Hi! We are going to Disneyland in Anaheim for the first time. We are from the Philippines and planning to rope drop. Once you enter the park, are photo pass photographers available as early as 7am to take photos?

    Hi there, Philip, and welcome to planDisney - but more importantly, welcome (soon!) to the Disneyland Resort! I'm thrilled to hear you'll be visiting for the first time.

    Visiting PhotoPass photographers at park opening is such a smart move! I can confirm that they are typically available at park opening. In fact, my family and I did the exact same thing on one of our recent visits and had a PhotoPass photographer take our pictures in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and they are some of our absolute favorites - the lightning was perfect at that time in the morning!

    If you're staying in one of the hotels of the Disneyland Resort and taking advantage of Early Entry, you can often find PhotoPass photographers then as well - this is what my family and I did, and there was no line to wait in. 

    If you haven't already, I'd highly encourage purchasing the Disney Genie+ service when you arrive for your trip. This is a must-have for my family and me when we visit because - not only do we get access to Lightning Lane selections, but also unlimited digital downloads of our PhotoPass photos. We then make it a point to visit as many PhotoPass photographers as we can, so that each trip has a photo album of professionally-shot photos!

    Thank you again for your question, Philip! Make sure to come back and visit us here at planDisney as you continue to plan your trip - we'd love to help you make it your best trip ever!

    Have a Magical Day,
