Also, due to space constraints, only fans who are in the photo or parents of fans in the photo are allowed in the photo op room.

Glasses will often glare and they also make it very difficult for the photographers to see if you blinked or not. If you do not mind removing them, we suggest you do.

Other important notes:

Please be courteous to the celebrity guests. Any inappropriate behavior will result in your immediate removal from the photo op room without refund. Also, please follow any specific instructions given to you by the photo op staff for a particular celebrity guest. Please do not assume you may hug and or kiss the celebrity guests.
