Step 1: Purchase your photo op.
Step 2: Print your QR code from your purchase, add it to your Apple wallet, attach to your RFID wrist band or screen cap on your smartphone. Pro Tip: Having a backup is never a bad idea, so combinations like RFID and printed, RFID and smartphone, etc are always a good plan!.
Step 3. Double-check the photo op schedule on either the FanX app or the FanX website for your photo op day and session time that is listed in your ticket title. Pro Tip: Photo op scheduled times are subject to change based on the celebrity guest's schedule. Be sure to check back as the event approaches and even at the event itself!
Step 4: Pat yourself on the back because you're doing great!
Step 5: Showtime! Arrive at the photo op queue entrance 15 minutes prior to your scheduled photo op time. Pro tip: If you attempt to arrive too early, it just means you are adding to your wait time needlessly. It also congests the photo op queue entrance which inhibits the photo op staff from getting fans queued. The sessions are set up to limit your time in the queue lines for your photo op. In other words, go check out the awesome vendors, grab a bite, take a seat and watch a panel or two, or get some sweet autographs!
Step 6: Look at the monitor at the queue entrance for photo ops. Find your photo op on the list and you will see the queue line number listed when it's open. If you are VIP, make sure you have your photo op QR ready and head into the VIP queue shown. If you are not VIP, make sure you have your photo op QR ready and proceed to the line number listed for GA (General Admission). The queue line numbers can be clearly seen on the floor in front of the corresponding queue line.
Step 7. As your queue line starts moving forward towards the photo op booth, make sure you have any items (backpacks, bags, purses, lanyards, etc) you do not want to hold or have on your person during your photo op and ready to place into the bins at the booth entrance. Anything that is in your hands as you enter the photo op booth will have to remain in your hands during your photo. There is nowhere inside the booth to place these items.
Step 8. As you near the booth, you will have your QR scanned in. Be sure and have it ready for the photo op attendant.
Step 9: Drop your items off at the bin near the booth entrance (your bin will be waiting for you by the booth exit).
Step 10: It's time for your photo! Listen for prompts given to you by the attendant in the booth as well as the photographer and they will direct you through the process inside the booth. Pro Tip: Photo ops are a fast process so please be sure to be ready as you enter the booth. The photo op booth can be loud (some of the celebrities really like fairly loud music while doing their ops!) so the staff may speak loudly to you. This is not to be rude but just to keep your attention so you get the best photo possible!
Step 11: Once your photo has been taken, proceed out of the booth and you will find your items in a bin waiting for you. Grab them then follow the yellow stripe you will see on the floor, it will take you to the print pickup area.
Step 12: Grab your new glossy 8x10 of your photo op! Do a happy dance! Pro Tip: The print pickup area is also where you can purchase a hard sleeve for your photo op or a second printed copy of your photo op.
