In line alone to meet Minnie, Mickey... at Epcot.

I'm going to do the meet and greet at Epcot at rope drop. DH does not want to do this. Instead he's going to get fast passes for Soarin'. If I am in line alone do I ask the person behind me to take my photo?

I would think the Fastpass photographer would help you out by taking a shot with your camera!

Usually you can just ask someone to do it. DH and I get asked all the time...we must look harmless.

If you're talking about the Character Connection at Epcot, there will be a Photopass photographer there that will take your photo (using their camera) and if you ask, they will also take a photo with your camera.

FYI
The CM with the Character will take photos too! (This is helpful when you find Characters without a photopass photographer.) HTH

In line alone

I have done this twice now and it is fun and easy to do. The CMs will take pictures using your camera. The first time I was in line they kept thinking I was with a mother and obnoxious child behind me. This last time there were only three families in line and it went just fine.
I assume that you are referring to the Character spot.

These were all taken with my camera by a CM

If that is your hubbie in the picture in your sig, then I would ask him too. He just has a really nice look about him.

For some reason people never ask me. Can't really understand why.

Actually, it is part of the character attendants job to take a photo with the guests camera not the photopass CM's job.
