Capture Your Moment is Coming Soon to all Walt Disney World Theme Parks
Disney PhotoPass Service is expanding its Capture Your Moment feature to include all four parks at Walt Disney World.
Capture Your Moment is a 20-minute private photo session that has proven very popular at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, the first two parks where it has launched. Now, Capture Your Moment is expanding to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
EPCOT – Starting February 24
Epcot joins the fun with a global view to whatever it is that you're celebrating: a surprise proposal, first visit to Walt Disney World, a graduation, anniversary or a family portrait memory. Photos sessions take place in picturesque World Showcase and you can choose from one of the following pavilions for your photo shoot: Germany, Italy, The American Adventure, Japan or Morocco.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Starting March 21
Photo shoots at Hollywood Studios offer some pretty unique options, including the spooky ambiance of the Hollywood Tower Hotel or a more serene and lighthearted setting with Gertie, Echo Lake’s resident dinosaur. Other options include the Chinese Theatre’s façade area (Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway), or the colorful neon signs and art deco architecture of Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard if you want to capture that old time Hollywood retro vibe.
So how much does Capture Your Moment cost?
Capture Your Moment sessions are $79 and can include up to eight people in your party. Prints and digital downloads are not included, but, if you've purchased a Disney PhotoPass product such as Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day, or if you are a qualifying Annual Passholder with a Disney PhotoPass download benefit, then you can download the photos at no extra cost.

The 2022 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Starts March 4
As we shared in past newscasts, Disneyland's Food and Wine Festival will take place at Disney California Adventure from March 4 through April 26.
If you're thinking of visiting during this time, here's what we know so far for Disney travelers.
Many of California’s most popular communities and regions will be highlighted in the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival’s wide array of dishes. Ten+ Festival Marketplaces will serve mini portions and drinks, and dining locations across Disney California Adventure park – including Pym Tasting Lab and Terran Treats at Avengers Campus – will also feature special festival menu items.
As always, the Sip and Savor Pass will be available for purchase and will include eight coupons redeemable for select food and non-alcoholic beverages at participating locations.
The Hollywood Backlot in Hollywood Land will be home to an wide range entertainment and presentations for all ages.
The all-new animated series, “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery,” which recently debuted on Disney Junior, is the inspiration behind a new, limited-time festival experience for junior chefs at the Hollywood Backlot Stage. During “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Unbirthday Party,” kids ages 3 through 11 will have the opportunity to express their creativity through hands-on cupcake decorating. Take note that space is limited, and participant sign-ups begin 45 minutes before each show time.
At the Hollywood Backlot, you may also find Chef Goofy or dance with Chip ‘n’ Dale as they provide the rhythm using pots and pans.
On Saturdays and Sundays there will be culinary demonstration at the Hollywood Backlot Stage. A diverse lineup of Disney and visiting chefs will prepare their favorite dishes and share insider tips for making mouth watering meals at home. So if you like to try out Disney recipes, this is a must-do.
Signature events will be offered for an additional fee, including Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions and special wine, beer and mixology seminars at Sonoma Terrace.
