    Hi! In mid-January, our family (me, my four children, my sister, her three children and my mom) will be making our first trip to WDW. First, how do we schedule a photopass session? Also, is it realisitc to do Epcot in just a day without a meltdown? Thanks!

    I recently got to some photos taken during a Disney PhotoPass professional session.  The pictures were amazing.  With your large group, you will have some great memories with theses pictures!

    Call 407-934-4004 to make your reservation with one of Disney's PhotoPass professional photographers.

    Scheduling just one day in Epcot is hard if you really want to see all of  Future World and all of  World Showcase.    Epcot is twice the size of Magic Kingdom, so you will be doing a LOT of walking.  In a perfect world, 2 days for Epcot is ideal.  However, if 1 day is all you can fit in, decide on what attractions you really want to see.  Use fast pass when available, and if your kids are small enough, have a stroller for them.  Your kids might enjoy Turtle Talk with Crush, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Journey Into Imagination with Figment, and if they're a bit older, Test Track and Soarin'.

    All of the countries in World Showcase are amazing.  Each offers its own restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.  My kids' favorite pavilion is Mexico, with a great counter service restaurant, The Three Caballeros boat ride, and the Plaza de los Amigos.

    Have a great time on your vacation, and I hope you enjoy your photo session!
