    Good morning, I am a professional photographer, and I am being hired to take photos for a clients sons first birthday. They just want some pretty photos of them in front of the castle and maybe on the tea cups. Nothing extensive at all. Wondering the rules

    Hi there, Courtney! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I LOVE that you came to us with your question about capturing such a precious milestone at The Most Magical Place On Earth this spring! I never tire of seeing the epic photos of guests making their dreams come true in front of Cinderella Castle.

    Yes, you can definitely take photos and videos while in the park with your clients, as long as it's not for commercial use. It's always a good idea to double-check the General Walt Disney World Property Rules when it comes to photography, just to be sure. Also, before your shoot, it's best to check in with park officials—you might need a photography permit.

    And Courtney, just remember to be mindful of other guests too. Avoid blocking walkways or attractions while you're getting those perfect shots. And there are some spots where photography isn't allowed, like backstage areas or certain attractions. Asking cast members for guidance as you go will help you stay on the right track.

    It was great chatting with you, Courtney. I'm always here to help and I'd love to see what adorable pictures you capture. Don't hesitate to keep me posted or reach out again if you have any more questions. Wishing you all the best!

    A Very Merry Unbirthday To You,
