I know from the half last year there were both professional photographers and personal cameras around. The pros were all over...but I don't recall if they were at EVERY stop where there were charactors...a lot of runners have their own cameras built into their little devices.
However the 5k I don't know. This is my first Disney 5k..I am taking my own camera though, even though its a pita.
+1 on the great job running your first 5k

First, they will NOT have photo pass, at any of the races. What has occurred on the larger races and I would think the 5k is that Brightroom will send out folks to many of the character spots. Brightroom is the official photograph of the race weekend. In the 5k they will shoot an action photo with Spaceship Earth in the background and then one or two other locations.

What I would do is bring a small camera or phone and toss the camera to the character handler. Brightroom will snap a photo also while you are with the character. The reason for splitting the photo is that Brightroom's may not turn out, or even more common, your bib may not fully show. IF that is the case, your Brightroom photo heads to the orphaned pile. Also, Brightroom can be pricy. They have a digital package that works for me, as long as I find a few photos I like. In the event you do not like their pricing or you do not take a photo where they are located, having your camera is a great back up.

If there are professional photographers at the 5K (not sure if there are since this will be my first time running it) they are NOT Photopass...they are brightroom, a company that Disney hires to do sports photography. Just an FYI, there is a Goofy package available so you may be able to buy the photos from your husband's half and daughter's full as a combined package for $150 (instead of buying them separately for $100 apiece). On that note...much cheaper to bring your own camera rather than buy the photos.

I bring my own small point-and-shoot camera camera and it's really not a big deal to just carry it with me.

ETA: Oops, didn't realize that Coach already answered this one. Congrats on your first 5K, francie57!

I'll be doing the 5K, half and full marathon. Typically my friends and I wear costumes and nearly walk the entire race, however this year because of our race schedule we decided not to wear any costumes. If you decide to walk the race that is fine as long as you meet the require pace requirements.

So what was your time...for the half and the full?

My goal is to cross the finish line...I can only pray the balloon ladies don't take me away!
