Okay, I guess the next question is: What time is the parade DONE? Otherwise knowing when/where people already have areas booked is sorta moot.

According to the schedule on the DC app, the parade is scheduled from 10-11am. Not sure if it ever runs over though

Okay, that helps narrow down times. Looks like not much is offically scheduled around that time, so now onto locaitons. I went to this link and looked at various locations people have used in teh past. I know it sucks when all princessed up to get far afield, but these are the areas I thought might do well for a princess bit. PLEASE feel free to throw in your two cents!
Sheraton pool atrium
Marquis Tower 1 lobby staircase
marquis tower 2 lobby staircase
secret food court

Obviously the Marquis Tower(1 or 2) lobby staircases would be the fastest to get to, but I guess it'll depend if people want indoor or outdoor, and exactly how many people may show up. Those that are on the fb page feel free to poll around there for opinions!

Just a heads up, I noticed on Facebook Dragon*Con 2012 photoshoots group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/341362562585709/) that photos wouldn't be allowed at the Suntrust building. Other than that, this will be my first year so I have no idea on the other locations :P

"No shoots will be allowed at SunTrust. There will be armed guards all around the building...so even the cool shoots from the 'sides' will not be allowed.
Just a heads up to all wishing to shoot there, you need to find another spot which is really lame since Sun Trust is purrrrfect for so many shoots."

Off topic, but are there any more general Disney meets happening? Because I'm bringing Scar.

There is talk in a couple different locations about a disney shoot. Whether times/locations get worked out is still to be determined.
Here are the ones that I've found though:
-https://www.facebook.com/events/222725491126089/ (Saturday @ 3:00pm? - no location specified yet)
-https://www.facebook.com/groups/341362562585709/ (Hosted by Sherri Davis-Friday @ 2:00pm in the Hardy Ivy Park) You can find an excel schedule to download on the facebook page with all the shoot slots.

Much confusion trying to figure out what all is going on with Disney shoots @_@

FYI - Marquis tower is closed on the weekends. So if any of you are planning a Sat photo shoot there you can't get to the stairs location on Sat/Sun. Only Friday.

I'm so bummed, I can't get together on Saturday with everyone because I'm marching in the parade in a different costume.

Is anyone still up for Friday? Someone on FB proposed 2:00 - but I don't know if that works for any of the Friday people?

Too bad about the Marquis Tower unavailability! How about the Sheraton Pool Atrium for Saturday, then? I see the fb event suggests 3pm. I was personally hoping for something earlier and immediately after the parade, but it would be nice to accommodate as many people as possible. If there is a way to combine efforts, that'd be fantastic.

I'm going to try to make the Friday shoot at 2:00, it just depends on how long it takes us to get to our hotel from the airport, get checked in etc. on if I have time to get dressed in time.

I'm fine with 3pm, I'll be in Lotte all day, and pretty hard to miss. For those of us that aren't on the FB group maybe keep this area posted about any ideas they banter about?

Unfortunately, no one is saying anything in terms of a location or even a confirmation for 3p on Saturday. I'll update here when/if the organizers chime in. As of now, Friday is looking like the only confirmed shoot.
