    Hello! We wanted to either hire a professional photographer or take our own family portrait outdoors at Yacht and Beach Club on our next trip. Wasn’t sure if we’d run into an issue with this because we’d obviously want the photos without masks on. Thanks!

    Welcome Back Melanie,

    Capturing a moment in time, especially at Walt Disney World, helps us hold onto those magical and memorable moments. And watching our family grow throw the years, in pictures, reflects and reminds us of where we were, what we were doing and where we hope to go. 

    At the moment, Walt Disney World’s top priority is the health and safety of their Guests and Cast Members. And in order for everyone to Return to the Magic, face masks are required at all times, on Walt Disney World property, except when swimming or eating/drinking and you must be stationary along with maintaining physical distancing. 

    Walt Disney World is asking all Guests to graciously comply and understand. This means you will need to adhere to the face mask request, during the time of your photos.  This is the new normal. Why not do a family photo with masks? Matching masks, Silly masks, Disney masks, Personalized masks, it is the new fashion trend and one we will look back on. Better yet, the family could all adorn embroidered Mickey Ears, with your name on the back and snap a photo with your backs to the camera wearing your Mickey Ears. However, if this is not what you were hoping for, reach out to your photographer and consider a site not on Walt Disney World property but in the vicinity. Florida is a beautiful state with beautiful scenery. 

    I hope this helps Melanie and we are excited to Welcome You and Your Family Home.
