    Trying to plan a surprise pregnancy announcement & gender reveal. What are the chances of being able to find a cast member to purchase balloons and photo bomb our picture? No one knows we’re expecting & we’ll be with the whole family of 20+ people

    Hiya, Morgan! Welcome to planDisney and congratulations on your little bundle of joy! 

    Oh boy, I'm so excited to hear that you're expecting a very magical arrival and will be announcing your good news during your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Morgan, I couldn't be more excited for you. I would love to help you plan for this very special reveal so you can pick just the right way to share and remember this moment with your family!

    I love your idea of sharing your news while taking photos with your family so you can truly remember the moment (and the reactions!). With over 20 people in attendance, it might be a little tricky to coordinate having a Cast Member step into the picture at just the right moment with balloons to share your surprise. But Hakuna Matata! No worries! I have another idea that might be practically perfect in every way.

    Morgan, have you heard of Capture Your Moment? This is a way to reserve a 20-minute photo session with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, making sure that you can get everyone in the picture and snap lots of pictures (and maybe share a surprise, too!). You could even reserve two sessions back-to-back to have an opportunity to visit two locations in your desired park. Yep, that's right – you can pick to have your photo session at Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! You can even call to share more about your celebration details (wink, wink) ahead of your session by calling (407) 939-7758. I'm sure you can talk about a few ideas that will be just right for your magical moment!

    Advance reservations are highly recommended! The Capture Your Moment photo session is an Enchanting Extra that can be booked 60 days prior to your arrival date. And if you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can book any dining or Enchanting Extras 60 days prior to your trip for the length of your trip (up to 10 days). Since this is a popular option, I would recommend making this reservation as early as possible. 

    I'm sending you all the faith, trust, and pixie dust on your upcoming trip, Morgan! If you have any other questions, please visit us again.
