Robb Hannen started this petition to The Walt Disney Company

For many years, one of the great joys of a vacation to a Disney theme park has been having your picture taken by a professional photographer while meeting various characters throughout the parks.  Their knowledge of the proper settings for the lighting and environment regularly results in incredible memories captured perfectly.  Furthermore, Disney has based an entire product (Disney's Memory Maker) on the promise that individuals and families will be able to have "everyone in the picture" as opposed to a family member having to take your own pictures and missing out on the memories themselves.  While children are getting their autographs, parents can sit back and enjoy the happiness they are experiencing all the while the photographer is clicking away capturing candid moments that become cherished memories.  

Recently Disney has changed this process.  This week (week of 11/12/2018) Disney has begun trying out a system where they have a stationary camera taking pictures from one angle at set intervals.  This elimination of personnel creates a less inviting, more stagnant process to the entire meet and greet.  Now individuals and families that want these candid pictures taken will have to try to capture all of this on their own camera, preventing them from being able to fully enjoy the experience.  

The goal of this petition is to encourage The Walt Disney Corporation to reverse this action and bring back the PhotoPass photographers to all of the character meet and greet areas.  These individuals have been incredibly helpful for families for many years, whether it was taking candid photographs of the entire character interaction, taking pictures with a guests camera, or simply suggesting a pose that makes sure everyone in the picture is in the right place.  They are incredible ambassadors of the Disney brand, and are another shining example of the phenomenal customer service that Disney is well known for around the world.
