    We will be traveling to Epcot in a few weeks, for our daughter’s 21st birthday. Family from all over will be joining us, including our military son (who is expecting our first grandchild). We would like to do a gender reveal in Japan at Epcot. How?

    Welcome to planDisney, Allyson! You must be so excited to get the family together to celebrate your daughter’s birthday and your first grandchild at the Walt Disney World Resort! My family and I have enjoyed a few vacations to The Most Magical Place On Earth with my parents and in-laws, and the memories we made together will last a lifetime. 

    I have been fortunate enough to assist a few other Guests with planning gender reveals, so you’ve come to the right place! Luckily, there are plenty of options for planning the perfect gender reveal at Disney World. If you want the assistance of Cast Members specializing in these types of celebrations, you should start by contacting Disney Meetings & Events. They say that if you can dream it, they can plan it! You should Submit a request explaining our idea and see if any of their ideas interest you.

    If Disney Meetings & Events doesn’t offer what you want, you could book a Capture Your Moment from the Enchanting Extras Collection. You and your family (up to 8 Guests) will have the luxury of spending 20 minutes with a professional photographer to capture your reveal. I spoke to a Cast Member who informed me that you could book two back-to-back Capture Your Moment sessions, giving you more time for your photo session and accommodating your entire group since each session can accommodate groups of eight. I would recommend contacting them by telephone to confirm and schedule!

    Another option is to incorporate some cool Disney merch into your reveal. You could take a Mickey and Minnie plush to the register with the gender of your new addition in an envelope and ask the Cast Member to ring up the correct one, put it into a box, and open the box in the Japan Pavilion when ready. Just be sure to have someone in the family prepared with a camera! You could also choose between a prince or princess outfit or Mickey or Minnie ears.

    I hope this points you in the right direction, Allyson! If, after reading these suggestions, you want to “Dig a little deeper,” come back to planDisney and ask me anything! Congratulations to you and your family on your new bundle of joy!
