    Hi we are a family group of 28 people. It's the first time of most of them and we are also celebrating 2 birthdays. What would be the best way to get a picture with Mickey and Minnie? All the kids have been looking forward too is taking pictures

    Greetings Margarita!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am really delighted to see that you will be experiencing the Disneyland Resort with such a large group of relatives. When you first arrive to Disneyland Park, make sure to stop by City Hall to pick up complimentary buttons such as a "1st Visit" or Birthday button for members of your party. It's a fun way to start your trip with a little bit of pixie dust.

    If meeting Mickey and Minnie are priorities on your trip, there are a few ways you can accomplish this. First, make sure to download the Disneyland app before you arrive. You will be able to check wait times for attractions as well as the times and locations of various Character Experiences right from the app.

    One way to meet these special pals is by checking out Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland Park and visiting Mickey's House and Minnie's House. You can say hello, get an autograph, and of course take pictures with them right in the comfort of their homes! They can also be found wondering around Town Square of Disneyland Park or Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park. Be sure to check the Disneyland app for these meeting times and locations. 

    Since pictures with your family and Disney Characters sound like a priority, you will definitely want to look into Disney PhotoPass products to decide which is best for your family. This service will not only provide you with professional photos throughout the parks, but also options to download these images to cherish these family memories forever.

    Hope that helps!
