About the Photo Op Schedule:
Closer to the event, we will post the schedule on our website. Don’t panic! Arrive 15 minutes before your Photo Op time — no earlier, no later. Arriving on time will help keep the Photo Op Area clear of unnecessary congestion.
We do our best on scheduling, but sometimes there is overlap with other Photo Op Sessions, Panels, or other events you’re interested in.

Guest Cancellation Refunds or exchanges:
Celebrity appearances and schedules are all subject to change or cancellation. All Photo Op Sessions are subject to change or cancellation. Make sure to check for updates on this page, on the App (when it’s available), our online schedule (when it’s available), and our social media pages regularly. We will post updates on social media as we get them. In the event this happens, you can email staff@bayareatoyexpo.com in the event your celebrity guest cancels to exchange or request a refund.

What is a Photo Op? It is a professional portrait taken with an individual star or a group of actors from your favorite TV show or movie. Each Photo Op includes a glossy 8″ x 10″ print and the option to purchase a digital copy.

What do I need to get a Photo Op? First, you need a valid admission ticket. Second, you’ll need to pre-purchase a Photo Op on our website or purchase a Photo Op session at the ToyXpo Photo Ops area on the Vendor Hall floor during the event.

Learn how the Photo Op process works, below:

    1. You are allowed up to two attendees per Photo Op Session. No exceptions.
    2. If you wish to have more than 2 people in your session, you must purchase an additional Photo Op prior to your session (up to a total of 4 people for 2 photo ops). Otherwise, those additional people will be turned away at Photo Op Check-In. Babies under one year do not count.
    3. Have your QR code on your ticket for your Photo Op Sessions ready to go. You can either print your QR code, take a screenshot on your phone, This will keep lines moving quickly. QR codes will be verified at the Photo Op Check-In and will be scanned in the Photo Op Staging Area prior to your Photo Op Moment.
    4. Once you arrive at Photo Op Check-In, volunteers will guide you through the following process:
Photo Op Process
  1. Step 1: Photo Op Check-In – QR code is verified for correct Photo Op session and number of people in your group.
    Step 2: Photo Op Waiting Area – Where attendees will wait for their Photo Op session to begin.
    Step 3: Photo Op Staging Area – Your QR Code ticket will be scanned at this time.
    Step 4: Photo Op Moment – Step right up! This is your moment with your favorite celebrity. Don’t forget to smile! This usually is a quick process with little time for conversation. Visit the guest at their booth in Celebrity Row for more one-on-one time.
    Step 5: After your Photo Op Moment, you will pick up your Print. A ToyXpo employee must scan / check your Print and QR code before you leave the Photo Op Area. This is also where you can purchase digital prints and plastic sleeves.
