    I am not getting the photopass, if I go to a character greet, will a CM take a picture for me with my phone? I need me a picture with a certain Wookie ;)

    They will almost always take a picture with your own device. They will also take the PhotoPass picture, and you can look a them online later with no obligation to purchase. I've never had a problem with a CM using my phone to take a picture.

    Yep! I do that all the time! Sometime the photo taken by the CM is better than the Photopass photo!

    Absolutely, and with their camera as well. There is always a photographer there as well as a handler(who will usually be the one to take photos with your phone). I did this at the end April for Chewie. Wish I had my Han & Chewie magicband on that day.

    Yep! We use them all the time so my husband and I can get pictures together. Both your camera and theirs if they have one. Heck, my husband and I have tried to take a selfie together in random locations and had CMs who happened to be walking past snap a pic for us.

    I have had CM's kindly take photos for us, but if there is no CM around, I am sure someone nearby would be happy to take a photo for you, and even return the favour if they want one!

    Yes, and they will happily do so. You do not have to buy Memory Maker at $199. The only thing you won't get is Magic Shots.

    It was fun. I made sure Groot wasn't going to push the buttons. LOL
