Did Mickey Sign a Prenup?

Mickey and Minnie are headed for a divorce—from PhotoPass.

Disneyland’s Entertainment Division had merged its PhotoPass and Character departments in late 2009. The idea was to facilitate the photographers working even more closely with the characters—much to
the dismay of the increasingly-restricted performers, who referred to the union as a “shotgun wedding.”

Over the coming weeks, however, Characters and PhotoPass will once again become separate departments. According to one source, “The departments have expanded so much, the current number of managers cannot take care of all the cast members for the two departments at the same time.”

Needless to say, the characters have been ecstatic since learning the news in a special meeting about two weeks ago.

    Does that mean there won't be photopass photographers at the characters? Or just that the departments are separating?
    If there won't be photopass at the characters in will not be upgrading my AP next week!

    Just the departments are separating, so they will be under different managers.
    There will still be PhotoPass photographers throughout the park, including at Meet & Greets.
    Upgrade away.

    I thought PhotoPass should merge with Fastpass+ for everything is supposed to be linked, but the linkage should be at a higher level, not at the department level.
