    I am planning a gender reveal at the Magic Kingdom and have Capture Your Moment booked. Is there a way to arrange having a character in the photo? Also, I reviewed the prohibited item list. Are color powder, confetti, and silly string permitted?

    Hi there, Brittany! Let me offer you a big welcome to planDisney and an even bigger congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your little one!

    Your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth is just around the riverbend, and that means that you're about to find out if you're having a little Mickey or a little Minnie! How exciting! Since you already have your Capture Your Moment session at Magic Kingdom Park booked, it sounds like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Now, let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your pixie-dusted countdown.

    When you arrive for your Capture Your Moment session, your photographer will let you know what locations are available for photos. While there is no way to guarantee that a character meet-and-greet location will be available during your session, and in my experience, characters are not involved in the sessions, I recommend discussing your wish list with your photographer when you first arrive. While it might not be possible to include a character in the photo, rest assured that your creative photographer will have plenty of ideas for the gender reveal of your dreams. 

    I spoke with a helpful Cast Member who informed me that unfortunately, colored powder, confetti and silly string are not permitted in the theme parks. But Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries." There are still plenty of ways to celebrate in either pink or blue! I recommend purchasing pink and blue Mickey balloons from a Cast Member on Main Street U.S.A., as well as some pink and blue cotton candy from Main Street Confectionery. Then, once the big reveal has been made, taking photos with the corresponding color will make the sweetest and most magical photos.

    Don't forget to pick up baby's first Mickey ears at Curtain Call Collectibles! You can even have them embroidered right on-site. I still cherish my little girl's adorable infant-sized, embroidered Mickey ears hat, and I'm so excited for you to make these magical memories oh-so-soon!

    I hope this was helpful, Britanny, and I can't wait to see you back here once you are planning your little one's first trip! I'm wishing you the most magical and memorable milestone trip, mama. Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. 

    Make it pink! Make it blue! Make it magical,
