    Hello! Are you still required to make an appointment for the Caricature drawings at Disneyland? If so where do I make that reservation? Also, is the Silhouette studio closed?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you found us hEAR and I'm excited to be your planEAR today!

    There's no better way to remember your Disneyland day than with a special souvenEAR. I like to sometimes get a piece of art that will remind me of the fun for years to come. Or sometimes I'll have something personalized, like a monogram on an ear hat. But the best part of having a caricature or silhouette made is that's it's all of the above! At the time of this answer, the Silhouette Studio is still closed. However, I'm very happy to share that the Caricature spots have reopened. I know the one in New Orleans Square is ready for business and I think there might also be one in the Downtown Disney District as well. These locations don't need advance reservations, like the way that you'd book a Disney Dining Reservation up to 60 days in advance of your visit. However, they might have a waitlist for the day depending on how busy they are and when you'd like to have your drawing done. The best bet is to stop by these areas first thing in the morning to ask if they have a waitlist yet or see if you can put your name down if you'd like to have your drawing done at a specific time.

    Pro Tip: Did you know that you can add people to these portraits who aren't in the parks with you? If you bring a photo (or can pull one up from your phone) you can add a loved one or even your pet to your drawing. (For the silhouette it helps if the photo is in the profile view.)

    If you want to capture more picture-perfect memories of your Disney Day, Stephanie, look into purchasing the Disney PhotoPass service. PhotoPass grants you the digital rights to download your on-ride and posed photos from your Disneyland Mobile App, usually within an hour of them being taken, to share them anywhere you'd like. And best of all, the Disneyland PhotoPass is included in your Disney Genie+ add-on purchase for the day!

    I hope that this helped to plan your upcoming visit to The Happiest Place on Earth, Stephanie! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
