Photograph booth #1 takes the photo for you and provides the print out on the spot. The other photograph booths require you to have your own camera and no print out is provided.
Each person is able to get 1 item signed per autograph line.
This line is for kids 17 and younger. One item per kid can get signed. Parents are able to stand with the kids, but not able to seek autographs themselves.
You cannot reserve a spot in line for an autograph. Once you leave the line for any reason, you are not able to come back to your same spot.
Fans requiring the use of a wheelchair will be permitted to go to the front of the autograph line, as long as they are included in the first 225 number of fans in line according to the autograph policy.
