Do you remember your first Disney Parks memory? I do! I was 6 years old and it was our first family vacation to Magic Kingdom Park, a welcome escape from the winter wonderland of my hometown in Annapolis, Maryland. I remember how huge Cinderella Castle appeared as I stood on Main Street, U.S.A., and had my photo taken. I remember my sides hurting from laughing too hard on the Mad Tea Party as my two brothers spun us around, and around again. And I still have my first Mickey Mouse plush from that vacation – the one I’m so proudly holding up in the photo below.
Now, almost 40 years later, I’m still making Disney memories, only this time, I’m on the other side helping to create the magic! As Manager of Marketing & Communications for Disney’s PhotoPass Service, I have the privilege of working with a team that does nothing but capture memories, all day and every day. And this year, our Cast of Photographers is making your Disney Parks memories even more special during the “Let the Memories Begin” campaign. Every day in the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland park, PhotoPass Photographers will be looking to capture some of your most special Disney Parks memories to be featured in our newest show, “The Magic, the Memories and You.”
That’s right – more than 500 daily PhotoPass photos will be featured in this larger-than-life experience on Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom and “it’s a small world” at Disneyland park. It’s a celebration of your moments – heroic and happy, adventurous and romantic, captured by our squad of memory makers.
So the next time you visit, be sure to find a PhotoPass Photographer and capture your special Disney memory. And then one day, it will be you digging through that musty old box of photos, remembering an enchanted castle, a side-splitting adventure, and a magical mouse called Mickey.
