    Are there Photopass opportunities at the Character dining venues?

    Hi Zane,

    There are photographers stationed at some of the character meals, but they are not PhotoPass photographers. At Chef Mickey's, Tusker House, Akershus, and often 1900 Park Fare, there will be a photographer stationed in the lobby with one of the characters. You are welcome to pose for a photo there. During your meal, a photographer's assistant will bring you prints of this photo and ask you if you want to purchase them. There is no obligation to do so. If you choose to buy the photo, you will need to do so at that time. Prices vary depending on which package you select, but you can expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $30.00. There are no PhotoPass photographers in the dining room. I STRONGLY encourage you to bring your own camera equipment to your character meal. You won't want to miss capturing those special moments.

    The photo situation is slightly different at Cinderella's Royal Table. There is a photographer in the lobby who will take your photo with Cinderella. This photo is included in the cost of your meal, you do not need to pay extra for it. When I have dined at CRT, I have sometimes been given a code which I could use to also add these pictures to a PhotoPass CD, but this has not happened every time I've been there. And again, there are no photographers in the dining room. You should plan to bring your own camera.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you need more help.
