    Can we get a Disney Photo Session outside the park(I see the grand Floridian, although it has nowhere to click to book.)

    Hi Greta and welcome to planDisney!

    I treasure every photo we have taken while on vacation at Walt Disney World.  We had a photo session at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort years ago, but the service that was offered by Disney Fine Art Photography is only available now for weddings and vow renewals.  Currently, Disney offers Capture Your Moment photo sessions at all four theme parks, but not at the Resort hotels.  

    The Capture Your Moment photo sessions give you 20 minutes with a Disney PhotoPass photographer around the park of your choosing and if you have Memory Maker or the Disney PhotoPass Download Option added to your annual pass, all of the photos taken are included.  We did a similar PhotoPass session at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa and you would be surprised with how many photos you can get in 20 minutes!  I plan on booking the Capture Your Moment: Magic Kingdom session for an upcoming family celebration.  

    I see you'll be visiting in September!  That's such a great time of year for a Walt Disney World vacation.  One thing to note is that if you are interested in the Magic Kingdom session, there will be lots of Halloween decorations all around Main Street U.S.A.  Depending on the vibe you're going for, that may or may not be of interest to you.  EPCOT makes for a stunning backdrop for photos.  We were married in Italy at EPCOT and our wedding photos were beautiful.  The Italy Pavilion just happens to be one of the Capture Your Moment: EPCOT location options!

    As an alternative if you have your heart set on photos outside a park, you can hire an independent photographer.  We had our wedding photographer take our 10th anniversary photos around Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa a few years ago.  You can Google for "Disney area photographer" and find lots of recommendations and reviews.  

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
