    Yay Columbus, IN!!! Are photopass photographers available during extra magic hours or before park opening (character breakfasts)? Want to get "the picture" of the fam in front of the castle without other people in background. Indiana rocks! Thank


    Go Bulldogs (or Olympians, as the case may be!)!

    You will definitely find PhotoPass photographers available during Extra Magic Hours at the parks. Now they can be a bit scarce if you are arriving to dine at a park restaurant before official opening time, butĀ ask one of the Cast Members on site, they may be able to help scrounge one up!

    You should also know that PhotoPass photographers are available for scheduled photo shoots as well! You can arrange for one of their talented photographers to meet you at a designated resort location and take photographs in any of a variety of settings. Recently I saw them taking a family's portraits in the lobby of the Grand Floridian. I don't think they were even staying at that resort-they just loved the look of the place! To make a reservation, call 407.934.4004 or check it our at

    Now you do have to purchase special packages to do this (understandably), but they are very reasonable, and there is no sitting fee. And what a great way to get your next family's holiday card picture!

    And thanks for the shout-out from Columbus! I love my hometown!

    Have a magical vacation!
