    I would like to book a photo shoot session for my daughters first birthday. I would like to know if it’s possible for Mickey and Minnie to be in it. Would it be an extra charge?

    Hello there, Carolina! Welcome to planDisney! I love your question! On behalf of my fellow planDisney panelists, first happy birthday to your daughter!

    Guests of the Walt Disney World Resort can schedule photoshoot sessions called “Capture Your Moment.” These sessions are available at either Disney’s Animal Kingdom or Magic Kingdom Park! Unfortunately, with Mickey and Minnie’s many hosting responsibilities throughout the parks and resorts, they are unable to be a part of the photo session.

    Capture Your Moment photo sessions can be booked on either the My Disney Experience app or on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Sessions are 20 minutes in length for a cost of $50. I scheduled a photoshoot as a surprise for my wife on our last visit! She loved it!

    Carolina, the best way to get some photos of Mickey and Minnie would be to book a Disney Dining reservation at a dining location where Mickey and Minnie are on hosting duty! This would include locations such as Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or Topolino’s Terrace (for breakfast) at Disney’s Riviera Resort! You do not have to be a Guest of the resort hotel to book dining at either location! The characters will come around to your dining area and pose in the background long enough for you to capture plenty of pictures!
