    My daughter with special needs is wanting a PrePark Photo experience for her quinceneara pictures, what is the best park and spots at the park.

    Howdy fellow Texan, Alfredo!

    I want to wish your daughter a very happy birthday! A quinceañera is such an incredible reason to celebrate, and it sounds like the most wonderful idea to have her pictures taken at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I believe the best place for the birthday princess to be at is the Magic Kingdom Park; after all, that's where Cinderella Castle is! The Park is never empty, but I would suggest getting there early enough to be at the gates a bit before Magic Kingdom Park opens because that is when I find it the least crowded. Your daughter will look like a princess right in front, beside, behind (the castle has no bad angles!) of the castle. The Hub Grass area, a spot with picturesque grass and a water fountain in front of Cinderella Castle makes for a beautiful photo spot. I also suggest pictures at Rapunzel's Tower in Fantasyland. It sits near The Haunted Mansion and even its area in front of the restroom is beautiful with the lanterns hung overhead amongst a cottage. At the entrance of Tomorrowland, just down the ramp from Tomorrowland Terrace, you will find what many Instagram users refer to as the "Purple Wall." It rose to fame as one of the "best spots" for pictures due to its purple pigment; and I must admit, I've taken a few pictures here myself!

    Part of the fun is accessorizing, so be sure to grab a Mickey Pretzel, DOLE Whip, or a Mickey Premium Bar to take pictures with!

    Now that we've talked about the perfect locations for your daughter's pictures, let's talk about who will be taking the pictures! There are talented Disney PhotoPass Photographers at several areas of the Park to capture all her magical moments. I would advise you get the Memory Maker; it is the most convenient way to download and share your Disney PhotoPass memories!

    Since you are looking into something special, there is also a Disney PhotoPass Service Studio located in Disney Springs Marketplace. They provide portraits with your choice of background and setting, so there is not as much walking around in fancy shoes! There is also a more formal option, Disney Fine Art Photography which allows you to book a photo shoot with your choice of locations, including the Magic Kingdom Park! 

    Whichever option you choose, one thing is for sure: your princess is going to look royally beautiful!
