    Are there rules the character handlers must abide by while children are with the characters? for example: someone not the parent/guardian taking pictures (another person in line). Could a guest get a picture of just the character between kids visits?

    The character handlers are there to keep the line in order and look out for the character's general safety. They are not there to police who is taking pictures of whom. From the character handler's perspective, it might not even be obviously which family goes with which child. With so many cameras at Walt Disney World*, it's nearly inevitable that you'll end up in someone else's family photos and other people will end up in your photos, there's not much any character handler can do about that.

    You are welcome to wait in a character greeting line just to take a picture of a character. There is no requirement that there be a guest in the photo.

    *There's a fun independent website called disneybythenumbers.com. They've posted the statistic that 4% of all amateur photography in the US takes place at Walt Disney World. I believe it.
