  • Now that I look at it, I actually recognize someone there who works for Disneyland Concierge Operations in that shot. And yes, @Robert, there are less photographers in parks lately. The app does tell you exactly where they are (which is awesome!) but there are many times that they are curiously absent. Outside the Royal Hall should have one for the meet-and-greet there as well as a few on Main Street for Mickey and friends that hang around. Beyond that, having someone at the end of some of the dark rides in Fantasyland would be amazing. Taking a quick picture and the very end of Snow White, Pinocchio, Mr. Toad and Peter Pan would be absolutely perfect. The photographers they employ are actually fantastic and getting pictures is our favorite part of coming to the parks with our 9-month old. All our family photos have come the parks so I hope there will be more opportunities like this in the future. ?

  • My guess is that the Mission:Breakout picture was from a Cast Preview, and those people in suits were from the offices at the Disney resort. Which is why they can post it here legally.

    My problem is that finding a Photopass cast member has gotten much harder. There seems to be less of them around, and some places that use to always have one never do anymore. People queue up to take pictures with characters or key photo spots, only to need to ask another guest in line to take the picture with their phone (at the non-structured meet-and-greets).

  • @John: Disney Executives ?

  • We love Photopass, but were bummed when they couldn’t figure out the Baby Groot magic shot when we were there. It was new when we were there. 🙁 But we did take a pic with Groot Bread in front our our kids’ faces. That was pretty hilarious! Not to mention, the jalapeno “I Am Bread” was delicious!

  • Haha! I like the staged photo of Mission: Breakout. Who wears long sleeves and ties to theme parks… 😉
