    Hello! I am planning to do a Capture Your Moment session at Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland for my daughter’s 1st birthday. I’d love to do it around the Mad Tea Party (ONEderland!). Is there a time of day you recommend to do the session around that area?

    Hi there, Lindsay!  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Pennsylvanian here at planDisney!

    You must be so excited to celebrate your little one's first birthday at Walt Disney World Resort!  As you get ready to travel to The Most Magical Place on Earth with your little princess, be sure to check out our planDisney Video Library.  My fellow panelists, Leslie and LeAndra recently filmed a wonderfully informative series of videos on visiting Walt Disney World Resort with young children.

    I'm so happy to hear that you're planning to book a Capture Your Moment photo session to commemorate your daughter's first birthday!  I actually did a Capture Your Moment photo shoot on my own birthday a few months ago, and it was such a fun experience!  I'm sure that you'll look back on your photos for years to come and remember this special time with your little one.  I think pictures make the best vacation souvenirs!

    When you book the Capture Your Moment: Magic Kingdom Park - Fantasyland & Cinderella Castle option, you'll be able to select your photo spots from various locations around Cinderella Castle, Fantasyland, and Liberty Square.  When you first meet your Disney PhotoPass photographer, you can let them know what you had in mind as far as a setting for your pictures.  Locations for Capture Your Moment photo shoots are subject to change based on weather and park operations.  So while I cannot guarantee that you'll be able to use the Mad Tea Party as your photo backdrop, I can tell you that your photographer will certainly work with you to incorporate your ideas and create a magical experience.

    While the theme parks tend to be less busy early in the mornings, I don't really recommend any specific time of day over another for your photo shoot.  When I did my Capture Your Moment photo session, I was so impressed with the way my photographer was able to work around the other Guests on a busy park day.  During Capture Your Moment photo sessions, Disney PhotoPass photographers often work in teams of two to help keep the area clear of other Guests.  My best advice to you is to book your photo session at a time that works best with your daughter's schedule.  

    If you don't have a Walt Disney World Annual Pass with a Disney PhotoPass benefit, then I highly recommend purchasing Memory Maker for your trip.  Your Memory Maker purchase will allow you to download all of the pictures from your Capture Your Moment photo session, as well as all of the other Disney PhotoPass pictures from your visit at one fixed price.  

    Lindsay, if you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  Wishing your daughter a very happy first birthday and your entire family a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
