    Are there photographers stationed around the route who will be taking race photos & if so, are the photos linked to the bib number? Is there a cost for photos? Are there photographers with characters? Do not want to run 19.3 miles with a camera!

    Hi, Rita! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for sending me your great question! 

    MarathonFoto photographers will be on hand to capture your most magical race moments. Whether you're frolicking through Sleeping Beauty Castle or rounding third base at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, you can be assured of some great photos to treasure. However, there may not be photographers stationed at every on-course character stop; so if character shots are important, plan on bringing a camera. 

    Within a few days of the race you should receive a direct email from MarathonFoto letting you know your Dumbo Double Dare photos are ready for viewing. At that time, you will login to their website and begin making selections. Prices will vary depending on the photo package you choose. If cost is a concern, as it can get rather expensive, that could be another reason to bring your own camera device. 

    In my opinion, you won't be sorry you brought your own camera, especially if those in-park photos are important. Disneyland® Cast Members are all along the course just waiting to take photos for you.

    Here are some tips for getting great professional shots:
    • Make sure your bib number is visible
    • Run along the sides of the course and not down the middle, as photographers will be stationed on the sides and at major curves  
    • Don't forget to smile near major theme park icons, Angel Stadium of Anaheim and the finish line 
    • Stop by the MarathonFoto booth at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo and ask for a course map of photographer locations. And don't forget to ask about any specials they may be offering for pre-purchasing a photo package at the Expo

    I hope these tips are helpful, Rita! Please do not hesitate to ask any additional questions you may have. 

    See you next week!
