    Can I take engagement pictures at the Grand Floridian resort or any other resort with my private photographer?

    Hiya, Yolanda! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney. Thank you so much for stopping by with your question for us!

    I think it's incredibly magical that you're planning on having your engagement pictures taken at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This picturesque and sophisticated Victorian era inspired Resort will make for a picture-perfect and romantic setting for that moment, which will surely become one of the most precious memories of your life.

    Yolanda, as per the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, photography, videotaping, or recording of any kind, or otherwise engaging in any activity for unapproved commercial purposes are all considered to be prohibited activities. With that in mind, and as long as you're not planning on selling or using the resulting pictures for commercial advantage, you and your private photographer are welcome to take as many pictures as you'd like. Please keep in mind that drones are not permitted anywhere within the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I would also like to take this moment to recommend that you book a private photography session with Disney Fine Art Photography & Video. This incredible group of photographers is super knowledgeable, and they have been through meticulous training all around the Walt Disney World Resort. This essentially means that they'll know exactly where to go in order to capture beautiful pictures of you and your fiancé... score! If you would like to book a session with them, you'll need to send them an email at with your name, preferred date and location, and a phone number where they can reach you.

    I know that your engagement session will be a truly magical moment that you'll treasure forever, and I hope that your wedding is enchanting as well! Please don't hesitate to come back and ask us any other questions you might have.

    Have courage and be kind,

    Ana Paula
