“A wilderness explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole!” – Russell, UP


Hi there! With our experience of living here for over 8 years, we know that capturing those memorable pictures here can take time, especially re-creating scenes right from Disney•Pixar’s UP movie, so, a reservation is required.  Please read below about taking pictures here, because this is our Home, we are not an amusement park. I’m sorry but we do not offer tours.

A couple quick selfies are fine from outside the fence, however,

a reservation is required with our UP House when:

  • You will be here LONGER THAN A COUPLE QUICK selfies OR taking photos of our home for MORE THAN A FEW MINUTES.
  • Taking photos for birthday/ anniversary/ engagement/ professional family portraits etc.
  • Proposals
  • You have balloon(s) and/or are dressed in an UP theme or costume

We schedule limited Photo Shoots throughout the year:

  • Outdoor, Indoor, Combo Outdoor-Indoor, & Proposals

If you’re interested in scheduling a reservation, please email me the following information below. Otherwise, we ask that you please respect us and our neighbors, and only spend less than 5 minutes taking a COUPLE QUICK pictures.


Thank you so much for understanding.
