    Its part of the job- one your first day of orientation, it is pretty much drilled into you that taking pictures for guests is part of creating a magical experience because the picture you take is likely to be their favorite one- the whole party is in it and no one is left out. They don't mind at all and I loved being asked when I was a CM. Sure, there are probablt some who would rather not be asked, but I looked forward to it.

    I Loved it! After I quit I had an AP and I would get so excited when someone asked me to take a pic. (we have already established I am a big dork) And we used to joke about it- people would come up to me constantly soon after I quit and ask me questions! My husband thought I must have some CM aura left around me! It eventually went away

    Thanks for asking the question. I was wondering the same thing as I wasn't sure if the CMs were allowed to do it and thank you to the former CMs that responded to this thread. You all are the best!!

    oh yeah! Character greeters do it all of the time for me. Granted, they don't always take the BEST photos.. but you just have to smile and hope for the best! I personally always try to offer to take pictures of groups when I can-- especially when I am alone. (They often will take a picture of you in return, guests). I did this for one family with a GREAT Minnie and got this picture taken for me by a guest and I love it!


    Hot places I take pictures is with characters (usually when it's not super CRAZY!), by the castle, by the water of TSI, and especially by IASW. I don't want to think about how many times I have snapped group photos of Japanese guests. crazy!

    Soon I'll be a CM and doing the same thing....

    My Fiance walks up to people and offers to take their pictures. Maybe we can all try this approach.

    My dad always does this. He figures he can get a better picture for them this way. (plus he's a great photographer). People are always a little hesitant, but then thank him profusely when they see the results.
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Even before I was a CM, I was always a magnet for foreign tourists thrusting a camera at me. They have no shame whatsoever when they want a picture taken. It was literally 10 times a day some trips. It led to a strange theory we had in high school that foreign tourists were trying to take over our country via the use of cameras. We hadn't figured out how exactly, but we were convinced it was true!
