CELEBRITY PHOTO OPS
Have the ultimate FanXperience… Get a professional portrait with an individual star or a group of actors from your favorite fandoms. Each Photo Op Session includes one glossy 8″ x 10″ print and the option to purchase a digital copy.
Our first round of Photo Ops ARE ON SALE NOW!
NEW INFO! It pays to buy early! Groups are determined by how early you purchased your Photo Op. The earlier you buy Photo Ops with the Celebrity Guests you want, the quicker you will get your Photo Op experience. VIPs will also be placed in their groups according to when they purchased their Photo Op. However, VIP attendees will always have priority.
Once all VIP pass holders have been placed in their groups according to when they purchased, we will begin placing Gold, Multipass and single day pass holders in groups. Don’t wait! Purchase your Photo Op early.
All Celebrity Guest Autographs will be available for purchase in Celebrity Row in the Vendor Hall during the event. Cash only.
