MM Photos at Christmas in Hotels

We are staying at the CBR for a week in December before Christmas.

As we have Memory Maker and we are on a special vacation (I know, everyone's vacations are special, but I'm just being particular), I am looking for ways to "optimize the action" and get some special photos if possible.

We just don't have tons of couple's photos (carrying around a tripod is not romantic). I was wondering if there were PPhotographers at the delux hotels around the Christmas trees and if we could get some photos taken with the Christmas atmosphere/surroundings at each one?

Has anyone been there at Christmas who has a feel for this and whether it is even something to keep in the back of my mind?

Anyone have photos they could show?

Hi again AK! Thought I would jump on over to answer your question. Yes! There are photographers at the deluxe resorts in front of the Christmas decorations. We had ours done at the WL, AKL and GF. I don't recall seeing a photographer at CR or Poly so we just took our own. AKL even had a magic shot where you could hold a "gift" with a special surprise in it. BC and YC have a beautiful gingerbread and chocolate carousel but no photographer next to it.

You will also find an abundance of photographers at the parks in front of the decorations. Tons at the entrance to Epcot and at the tree right before world showcase. A few more at the animal
Kingdom Christmas tree out front and lots at magic kingdom down main street.

I have tons of photos I can share but I will have to do that when I get home as I am on my phone tonight. Stay tuned, in the mean time maybe someone else will chime in with their experience.

This is our photos at our resort, the WL. My MIL and SIL wanted to add this little pixie dust border.



Here is a magic photo at the AKL.



Another AKL photo, this time normal. The photo pass photographer here was awesome! He even gave us a few tips of places at AK to get some great photos.


Here is DH and I at the GF.


And now the whole family at the GF

Thank you!!!!

Finally a reply! Thank you so much!

These are amazing! Just the response I was hoping for! Oh I hope we get your luck and such fabulous photos.

Based on the number of views but no responses, I think a number of people are curious about this.

So glad now that I am getting Memory Maker after all!

This is good information to know so I appreciate the question and answers. It sounds like a great opportunity for family pictures. Are the photopass photographers available for most of the day or are there specific times that one should plan?

That is a great question, Pirate, I just really do not know the answer!

I hope someone will jump in with Information. Perhaps I will ask on another thread and link the answer here.

APiratesLifeForMe2,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. I love them.

I will also be in Disney (BC) with my family this December. I purchased Memory Maker and am excited to get family photos. I don't know why, but it didn't occur to me that I could get pictures from a Disney photographer anywhere I go. Also, I usually take the pictures, so now I'll be part of the family photos. Money well spent.

They are pretty much there all day so you can stop in whenever. Sometimes there is a line but it usually moves quickly. If you like magic shots make sure you ask if they have any. AKL was the one that offered the magic shot and we never asked at any other resorts.
