    I thought Disney hôtel guests could book enchanting extras 60 days before trip? Why is the Capture your moments not available for Cinderella Castle in January 2024?

    Hi Lisa, 

    Welcome back to planDisney – it’s lovely to “see” you again!

    You’re absolutely right that Guests who will be staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel for their upcoming vacation are typically able to reserve Enchanting Extras, including a Capture Your Moment photo session at either Fantasyland & Cinderella Castle or Main Street, U.S.A. & Cinderella Castle up to 60 days before your check in-date. The issue is that these experiences are EXTREMELY popular and are often sold out the moment that window opens. 

    If you aren’t seeing any availability for your dates for either of these sessions, I’m truly sorry. That said someone cancels their reservation, if the timing is right, you might be able to grab it using the online reservation tool. This will be especially true as you get closer to your vacation dates and people change around their plans at the last minute. I also highly recommend that you search for a range of dates for BOTH of these experiences when you’re trying to get a coveted session, rather than just one or two days during your trip and only one of the two locations. It may require you to rearrange your plans, but these photo sessions are definitely worth it. 

    If you don’t wind up getting a session at Magic Kingdom Park, I would recommend that you look into getting your pictures taken at another Theme Park. I recently got together with a bunch of friends and we did a session at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the pictures that we got on Hollywood Boulevard turned out great! I’m actually hoping to do a Capture Your Moment session at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with my family very soon. That park is truly beautiful and I think it would be a great alternative if there is no availability at Magic Kingdom Park during your dates. 

    As always, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us! I really hope that we’ll be able to find a way to make your Disney Parks vacation dreams come true. 

    Have a Magical Day,
