Disney PhotoPass photographers are ready to capture your vacation memories all around Walt Disney World® Resort. From picture-perfect scenic spots to popular dining experiences, these are great opportunities to take beautiful photos that include the entire family.
If you’re celebrating something special and want a bit more time in front of the camera, the Disney PhotoPass team is piloting a new experience at Magic Kingdom® Park called “Capture Your Moment.”
Capture Your Moment lets you book time with a Disney PhotoPass photographer for a personalized photo session during regular park hours at Magic Kingdom Park to capture celebrations and milestones, such as a proposal, baby announcement, graduation, anniversary, family reunion, first visit, birthday, and more!
All Capture Your Moment photo session locations will offer an iconic view of Magic Kingdom Park, to include a view of Cinderella Castle. At the start of your session, your photographer will share available photo shoot locations and discuss what they would like to capture before escorting you to their photo shoot location. Once you arrive at your photo shoot location, you will have the opportunity to capture photos there with your photographer for up to 20 minutes.
Each Capture Your Moment session is $50. You can book up to 2 Capture Your Moment sessions back to back and receive 40 minutes along with 2+ locations throughout the park.
The Disney PhotoPass photographer will customize the photo shoot to your needs while using their creativity and personal style to take stunning photos.
This service is an interesting addition for Disney and may be one of the last saving graces for Photopass, a service which typically isn’t taken advantage of that often. On the other hand, many guests do come into the parks with their own photographer for these kinds of things so if may be nice to have “official” approval with Disney doing it.
Keep in mind though, Disney does try and hire Cast Members with camera experience but some may not. Just don’t think you’re headed into the parks for a professional photoshoot by a professional photographer.
Also, your photos aren’t included in your session so you’ll want to buy Memory Maker in advance for unlimited downloads of your photos.
These Capture Your Moments should be casual and fun or even last minute decisions like a proposal. It’s definitely a better option than having your mom take photos from your phone during the big moment!
