OMW! MOTOXPRINCESS99, how did you get those group pictures in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle? That is exactly what I want but the last time I was there for four days in December 2006, we never saw a Photopass Photographer. Please tell me you weren't just lucky...I'm never lucky! Thanks!

I've always seen a photo pass person in front of the castle. :confused3 This was taken first thing in the morning on a Saturday.

There's usually at least one PP photog in front of the castle, unless there is an event going in at the castle. During the summer as they start blocking things off for the fireworks, they will disappear.

If you are at DL and don't see a photographer around (like in front of the castle) go to the PP store at the end of Main Street and ask when one will be there. They have the schedules. Sometimes you might just be unlucky enough to be there while they are on break. My 2 favorite photogs work M-F, usually like 8-5 so if it's after 4:45 or on the weekend, they are gone. Seems to me that some of the better ones work on the weekdays.

There is almost always one at the hub, unless they are on break. This is where we usually can find Dave.

Here's one of our family taken earlier this year in front of SL Castle.




With the size of MotoPrincess's group, I wouldn't be surprised if they set up some of their photo ops.

    I have to say that I, too, have always seen PhotoPass photographers in front of the Castle and have gotten numerous Castle photos over the years (including nighttime Winter castle, daytime Winter Castle, Charlie's Angels pose, Rockettes kick pose, etc.).

    But, I wonder - in which year did PhotoPass begin at Disneyland/California Adventure? I know that WDW had it before DLR had it. The first month/year I became aware of PhotoPass was September 2007, but I didn't go to the parks in 2006 to know if PP was there at that point.

    Is it possible that the reason lurpee didn't see any PP photographers in front of the Castle in 12/2006 is because either PhotoPass had not started in DLR yet, or because they hadn't yet fully settled on their permanent 'stations' around DLR?

    At a quick glance, I couldn't find the year that PhotoPass began at Disneyland Resort, but I think it had already started well before December 2006, when lurpee was there and didn't see any photographers in front of the Castle.

    I am thinking that maybe PP was still 'new' enough at that point (12/2006) to where they hadn't become fully staffed with photographers and hadn't quite gotten enough people settled in various posts around the parks yet, but who knows??:confused3 Maybe they had fewer CM's available to man the different stations and therefore some of the photo spots were left unattended for longer periods of time?

    We went in December 2006 not knowing anything really besides that we wanted to do the rides (even though it was my fourth visit I think). We did the Photopass but didn't see anyone in front of the castle. I will be watching for it for sure this time! I look forward to this! Thanks!

    We actually just all met in front of the castle at a certain time and told the PP person we wanted a group shot.

    These ladies are all DIS members by the way. Each year we do a Ladies Only Trip. No kids, no husbands...it's a blast!

    We are in planning for our 5th annual Trip (February 23-27, 2012), come stop by the thread...http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2754704

    Bumping up a little. I will have new ones to post but not until early Dec.

    Quick note for those of you who combine WDW and DLR PP CD in one order and pay the DLR price, $59.95. This is no longer allowed. If you have any WDW photos in your account, you will be charged the WDW price, $149.95, or $99.95 if you prebuy before any photos are taken. I just received an email from PP after I inquired about the pricing on my recent WDW and DLR trips. This is a recent change as I did the same thing back in late June/early July and only paid $59.95.

    Thought you might like to know. Wish I had before our recent WDW trip in October. :sad2:

    Just ordered my CD with photos from WDW (Oct) and DLR (Oct-first of Dec.) so I will have some new photos to post.

    Got some great ones with my favorite Santa in DCA as well as the one with Stitch coming out of the present.

    I should have my CD in 10-14 days. (hopefully sooner)

    Got my CD Saturday with pix from WDW in October up thru DLR first of December


    Here's a few of the DLR ones. These are mostly from DCA Meet 'n Greet with Santa.



    This is in the Duffy area. If Duffy's not there you can get photos with you and the background.


    Used this one as our Christmas card. It was Santa's idea for the shot.






    Santa "I remember when you were only this tall!"

    And a few from Disneyland








    Finally got the Stitch with Christmas present. Missed this one 2 years ago




    "When 2 holidays collide!"


    Tried to include a selection of the holiday borders so you can see what's available.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

    Great pictures, Dizneydaz! I really love the picture of your daughter with Santa - the one in color, in which he has his arm around her. That's adorable. She is a very photogenic young lady!

    The 'Stitch popping out of the present' picture was actually from 2008 (remember, I was the only one from the DIS who seemed to have gotten it, for some odd reason??:rotfl:)! They were no longer doing that PhotoPass pose as of 2009 because the Christmas tree was moved to a different spot and for whatever reason it didn't work as well or they were not allowed to do it. It was only this current (about to end) holiday season that they brought the photo op back, from what the photographer I was chatting with told me.

    Although, to be honest, I liked the old 2008 location for the Stitch/present picture better. This current one does not allow the photographer to get as close up, for some reason, and when I was looking at my PhotoPass pictures from my trip a few weeks ago I realized I liked the closer vantage point of the 2008 version of the Stitch picture much better than the version I got in 2011. Oh well, what can you do? I guess it's better that they have the photo op than to not have it at all.

    I can only hope that DLR comes up with some nifty new PhotoPass poses, locations and magic shots once DCA's work is totally finished later this year.

    Oh! And I love love love the fact that PhotoPass is now giving us the 'bonus' stock Disney character photos on our CD's! That was a delightful surprise to me (maybe I missed some discussion on it?) when I went on to view my photos. It only increases the value of the CD all the more. I especially love the pictures around the Partners statue, and the one of Mickey and Minnie by the train.

    Thanks Sherry! Was it really 3 years ago? Wow how time flies!:goodvibes I thought it was only 2 years.

    New PP opportunities would be great. I too love the stock photos you get. Pretty cool. ;) And you can even enhance them. :thumbsup2

    Funny thing about the Stitch photo-the first time we were waiting for Santa the PP photog offered to take our picture in front of the tree. She didn't offer the Stitch one but I spied the present sitting off the side.;) I asked her if they were doing the Stitch one again. She said they were and I told her we wanted to get it. Once we took our photo I noticed that she did offer for the guests in line after us. I'm glad I saw the present.;) We were able to do it 3 different times while waiting for Santa.

    I noticed I really haven't posted much from Halloweentime-so here are a few more from the villian meet 'n greet. We just missed out on Dr. Faciler from Princess & the Frog. Missed him by just 2 people. :sad2:











    I think Cruella is one of my favorite characters. She is so in character all the time.:wizard:

    More fun with characters. My DNephew (3 on Christmas Eve) still hasn't warmed up to meeting characters. He swears he will talk and dance with Pluto but when the time comes he suddenly gets shy. Here's a series of photos taken with Pluto when he finally touched his nose. Pluto was great and even did the "Hot Diggity Dog" dance with my DD12 to try and get DNephew in to it. It didn't work!










    Finally-contact!






    They were so in-sync it was almost like they had practiced.:goodvibes One of those spontaneous moments I love Disney for. :)

    Funny thing is that DD was always good with characters. Always!

    Here are some where we had fun with the photog in front of the castle.



    Notice that we had DD hold her hand up for tink where it is black behind her so she wouldn't get lost in the pumpkin on her shirt.




    I like this shot.:goodvibes

    Here are some pictures with the new 2012 boarders from the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend.

    They are not too clear because I don't have the CD yet.
