Photopass photographers in park before opening

I am just wondering if photopass photographers are in the parks before it opens to take pictures of those with ADRs ?
We have BBB at 845am at a day the park opens at 900am so am wanting to get some quick pictures of an empty main street and in front of castle...but would love family shot too.

Oooh good question! I have an 8am adr at the Castle and was looking forward to snapping some shots off ... didn't even think about there being a PP Photographer there!

Walk really fast

I have a beautiful picture of myself, DH and DD last April taken in front of the castle with no one else around, but it wasn't because we had an early ADR. MK was to open that day at 8, but with EMH it opened at 7. We were there at 6:45 and there were very few people there when they let us in, maybe 100 total. We walked quickly without running and had just enough time to get the picture taken by the Photopass photographer while we could see people still coming up Main Street. That is probably the best family photo I've ever had in front of the castle. The light was just right at that time of the morning, its sure pretty when its still quiet.

Have had many pictures taken in front of the castle before the park opens for early ADR's. Usually there are at least 4 of them standing around.

We had an appointment at BBB for 8:30am and got some beautiful pics of my kids in front of the castle without the crowds. The Photopass photographer was terrific! He took the most precious pics of them and did some "special effect" pics of them as well (tinkerbell in their hand). I just booked BBB for the same time for our next trip so I can get some more great shots!

we had several pictures without the crowds and the photographer did some with all of us, then just mom & dad, some with just the kids, and some with our own camera.
