Senior Pics @ WDW?

We are going to be at Disney in May and my DS is wanting to have his senior pictures done there @ WDW
Can this be done and how do I go about getting it scheduled?
Could I use a Photopass and get them that way?
Any help is much appreciated.

Photopass is pretty limited on how much they can move around and get creative. Unless you want his senior photos to all be in front of Disney landmarks, I'd find another option. Maybe a resort photo shoot on the beach at the GF or Poly?

Be sure to get him some senior ears and do a few in front of the castle too. I sure wish my own Senior would want to do something like this. Sigh. I'm getting him to FL but only to visit the beach. I'm planning to do my own Senior shoot of him on the beach on Sanibel Island. Maybe I should pick up some mouse ears just for grins.

Here is the website for Disney Photography: www.disneyeventphotography.com

If you just want pictures around the resorts I recommend Regina Hyman, she used to work for Disney Photography. www.reginahymanphoto.com

If senior portraits are anything like wedding photography you have no say in who you get for a photographer.

I am a photog and follow a few in the Florida area. One of my favs is Cayden Lane Photography. She has shots on her facebook page from the boardwalk area. https://www.facebook.com/caydenlanep.../photos_stream

Another that I follow is David and Vicki Arndt. They mainly do weddings but I have seen them do Seniors as well. https://www.facebook.com/OrlandoWeddings?fref=ts

Just know that if you want quality work it will not be cheap. Not sure what your budget is, but I would just start searching out photogs in that area and see if you can work something out with one of them.

If you're looking for not-in park, try Regina Hyman. She is AMAZING.

If this is going to be the same pic that goes in the yearbook, you may want to check with them about any requirements they may have. Some schools don't, but mine was crazy strict about poses, backgrounds, lighting, etc.

My high school was not, but I think DD's high school brings in a photog for the senior portraits. Oh, man I hope not, because y'all just gave me the best excuse to plan another trip - and we have not even gone on the one we are planning yet!

My friend did this. She used photopass. The photos were fantastic. The one i like the best was the one with the tree of life in the background. She just took her cap and gown into the parks with her and put it on when she wanted a particular background. She said the photographers were really great about it.

OP the thing to keep in mind is that an outside photographer can't take "professional" pictures in the parks. I used the term "professional" because yes they can take pics, but if it looks like a photo shoot they may ask you to stop or even leave the park.

I'm a little surprised that they let you do this. It kind of falls into the no costume no wedding attire in the parks rule.
