    I want to surprise my husband at Disney World/Disney Land for a pregnancy announcement. He loves darth vader. I thought it would be awesome to do the special moments at a special place for both of us. Is that possible to be arrange? Thank you

    Bright Suns, Rachelle!

    Welcome to planDisney and congratulations on your little youngling!  How wonderful that you are thinking of a special way to share this news with your husband - and at the Most Magical Place on Earth nonetheless!  Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect place for planning your celebration, offering a unique opportunity to travel to Black Spire Outpost for the big announcement!  

    Having a photographer capture your husband's face when you share the news sounds like a great idea.  I'm happy to share that currently you can book Capture Your Moment: Disney's Hollywood Studios - Batuu, a 20-minute photo session with a Disney PhotoPass photographer.  This session will include a photography location that is truly out of this world and may even include the Millennium Falcon! Reservations are recommended for this experience and you also need to have a valid admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You can book your photo session online and there is a phone number on the reservation site where you can call and discuss your special occasion so your photographer can be prepared to capture your announcement!

    The price for this experience does not include photo downloads, but you have two options.  You can opt to pre-purchase Memory Maker which will give you access to not only these photos but all photos from your trip.  If you buy Memory Maker for the length of your stay at least three days in advance, you can receive a discount on that price.  However, you can also view and purchase photo downloads individually.  

    While characters are unable to join a Capture Your Moment photo session, your husband can visit with some of his favorite friends from a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Launch Bay located in the Animation Courtyard at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Currently, BB-8, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader are greeting guests throughout the day, but character greetings are always subject to change.  Regardless of which Star Wars rebels or First Order leaders you meet, I'm sure they'll all be excited to celebrate your pregnancy announcement and may even try to recruit the youngling to their side!  It might even be fun to check for a Star Wars baby onesie on before your trip that you can include in those character photos!  

    Rachelle, if you're looking for a special dinner reservation that night to continue your celebration, a few of my favorite restaurants are located just a short FriendShip Boat ride away from Disney's Hollywood Studios along Disney's BoardWalk!  In my opinion, Ale & Compass at Disney's Yacht Club Resort is a hidden gem.  I love the New England Seafood Pot Pie!  You can then enjoy a leisurely stroll along the BoardWalk and view the fireworks from EPCOT.  A relaxing way to end your day!

    I'm sending lots of pixie dust your way as you plan this magical announcement and celebrate your pregnancy.  Please feel free to stop by planDisney again with any other vacation planning questions!
