These are personalized photo sessions with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. You get a dedicated time slot and location in the park for your session, allowing you to create customized and memorable photos.

Pricing is straightforward at $99 per 20-minute session, and each session generally targets 1 location inside the Disney Theme Parks, such as Magic Kingdom. Multiple sessions can be booked for an extended session with multiple shooting locations.
