*** UPDATE: As of February 2023, Capture Your Moment is no longer being offered at Disneyland Resort. It is still available at Walt Disney World.


Most visitors to the Disney Parks are already aware of Disney PhotoPass, the photography service Disney offers in various spots around the Parks. Guests may take photos with any Disney PhotoPass photographer, with the option to purchase their digital photo files.

What Guests may not know is, you can actually hire a Disney PhotoPass photographer for a private photoshoot!

What is ‘Capture Your Moment?’

Capture Your Moment is a personalized 20 minute Disney PhotoPass session that can be booked during normal operating hours. At the end of the session, you can browse through your digital photos and choose which ones to purchase, or purchase the entire bundle!

Capture Your Moment is a great way to commemorate a special event, such as an engagement, birthday, anniversary, honeymoon, pregnancy announcement, graduation, or just take family photos.

With Capture Your Moment, you reserve a 20 minute Disney PhotoPass time slot, which means you don’t have to track down a photographer or wait in line for 2 or 3 photos.

And if you want more time, you can book two sessions back-t0-back, giving you 40 minutes with the same photographer!

‘Capture Your Moment’ Pricing

The cost of a 20 minute session is $99, inclusive of tax. The price does not include your photo downloads. To purchase photos, you have a few options:

  • Purchase photos individually
  • Purchase Genie+ for the day, which includes all PhotoPass downloads (currently priced at $20 per day)
  • Purchase a Disney PhotoPass One Day package (currently priced at $19.99 per day)

Pricing is always subject to change. You can make these purchases right in the Disneyland app.
