    We have reserved several character dinning experiences when we visit in August with my 5 year old. Are there picture opportunities during these dinning experiences? Memory Maker photographers?

    Hi Meredith,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please tell your 5-year old that all of the characters are anxiously awaiting your arrival in August!

    It sounds like you have purchased Memory Maker. Since we started purchasing Memory Maker a few years ago, we have captured some magical photos. There are PhotoPass photographers at select Character Meals. Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Chef Mickey's, and 1900 Park Fare, for example, all have an official photographer there to capture a photo prior to your dining experience. Guests can also take an official photo with the Beast after dinner at Be Our Guest restaurant. 

    Given that character experiences can change, I advise guests to double-check upon arrival. We have enjoyed wonderful character meals, so I no longer worry. Take your own camera, however. The Photopass photographers are not typically taking photos of each character at each table during the dining experience. They take one photo before or after your meal. 

    Your Memory Maker will also include photos and videos on select rides. These are absolutely priceless!

    I hope you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. It is the only way we can keep up with all of our Fast Pass+ and Dining Reservations while on vacation! The app also has a fantastic feature that allows guests to get directions and estimated transit times between locations.

    Although any age is a wonderful age to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, 5-years old is truly magical.

    Have a fabulous time!
