    We are visiting Disney World with 21 of our family members to celebrate my grandfather's 90th birthday in January. I would like to book a photo session with a Disney photographer to capture photos of the whole group in Magic Kingdom. Is this possible?

    Hi there Jordan!

    Welcome to planDisney. Your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort sounds like an amazing way for your family to celebrate your grandfather’s major birthday! 

    It sounds like you’re describing a Capture Your Moment session in Magic Kingdom Park. This is a scheduled 20-minute photo session with a personal Disney PhotoPass photographer in various areas of Magic Kingdom. You can book a session on the Walt Disney World website or through your My Disney Experience mobile app by searching “Capture Your Moment.” Make sure you select the correct theme park location. These sessions can be booked up to 60 days in advance, so you should check for availability as soon as possible. Some same-day sessions may be available, but you must ask at the Liberty Square Ticket Office next to The Hall of Presidents to check. Each Capture Your Moment session can include up to eight guests, so you’ll need to book more than one session to include your entire party. The photos are not included in the price of the session, but if you have Memory Maker you can download your Capture Your Moment photos along with the rest of your vacation PhotoPass photos at no extra cost. 

    I have booked Capture Your Moment photo sessions several times and I have a few tips. You have a large group, so if there are any must-have shots, be sure you let your photographer know right away. I suggest appointing one person the “group loudspeaker” to help the photographer direct your family. For our family session, we took a few photos I wanted for the holiday cards, but then let the photographer run the rest of the session. We got some great photos in locations I would not have considered myself! With that in mind, if your party has a lot of bags, strollers, or mobility devices, remember that you could be moving to different locations to take photos, so you’ll need to gather them quickly to keep that 20-minute session productive. 

    I hope you have an incredible visit for your grandfather’s 90th birthday, Jordan. Don’t forget that you can book your photo sessions now for your January date. If you have any more questions, please come back and see us at planDisney!
