    Are memory maker photographers located at the character meals? Do they take pictures during meal? What about Mickey's backyard bbq, are any photographers there?

    Hi Brenda,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family has had the opportunity to enjoy a lot of Character Dining Experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort! One of our favorites is breakfast at Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort; my youngest daughter met Mickey and Minnie for the first time while there. It's one of our most treasured memories, and we have some really special photos of her magical meeting! 

    Disney PhotoPass Photographers are only on hand to take entry photos before your meal at Mickey's Backyard BBQ, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare, and Cinderella's Royal Table. The photos will be scanned to your MagicBand or a Disney PhotoPass card. If you have purchased Memory Maker the photos will be included and available for download with all of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation photos. PhotoPass Photographers do not take photos as the Characters come to your table to meet you. Cast Members are available to assist you in taking photos with your own camera, but the photos are not included with your Memory Maker. At all other Character Dining locations, Disney PhotoPass Service is not available. 

    I hope this information helps. Please visit us again if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
