    I recently celebrated my 50th birthday, and I'm looking forward to celebrating WDW's 50th birthday during my visit in December. Are there any special places in the park that you would recommend for a special 50th birthday photo?

    Hello Sarah! First, on behalf of my fellow planDisney panelists, happy 50th birthday! You share a special birthday year with The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    There are so many fantastic photo spots throughout the Walt Disney World Resort parks and hotels! However, given that this is your 50th birthday, as well as the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend that you head over to Magic Kingdom Park and have your photo taken on Main Street, U.S.A. with Cinderella Castle in the background! The huge, newly-installed, “50” medallion on the front of the castle will serve as the perfect backdrop for your photo. I want to share an important and helpful tip...When arriving on Main Street, U.S.A. you’ll find that there are photographers set up at intervals along the street. I recommend that you go to the photographer at the end of the street, closest to Cinderella Castle! Doing so will guarantee that the big “50” medallion shows up perfectly in your pictures!

    Sarah, I also want to recommend that you consider a “Capture Your Moment” photo session. This is a 20-minute photo session that is available in both Magic Kingdom Park, as well as Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I recommend, again, that you stick with Magic Kingdom Park for your photoshoot due to your common celebration! The “Capture Your Moment” photo session costs about $50 and can be booked either online on the Walt Disney World Resort website or on your My Disney Experience app! I booked a session as a surprise for my wife during our last visit! She loved it!

    Happy 50th birthday, Sarah! Hakuna Matata!  Jonathan
