    Good picture locations for baby announcements?

    We just found out we're having another mouseketeer! This makes number two. Finding out coincides with our Valentines weekend trip. We'd like to take a few pictures and turn these into baby announcements!

    Any suggestions of a nice area that may have photopass (or not) that would be a nice area to take some baby announcement pictures? We wanted to get some of Mickey and Minnie in their valentines day themed clothes, maybe doing something funny or cool in the pics to help us announce we're having a baby.

    Will they pose for pics like Minnie acting suprised and maybe Mickey pointing to my wifes stomach? Will the photopass cast members take these pics and also are they happy or do they suggest fun things to do in these pics? We were also thinking of taking pics every month or two or three (depending on how often we can make it to so-cal since we live in roseville)at the same place in the park to show my wifes growth.

    I think this this is really fun idea and something we could remember forever! Any suggestions would be helpful!

    Congratulations!!

    My husband and I took our announcement photos at Disneyland last April, I posted a TR about it... I'll see if I can find the link.

    We found the CMs and characters to be eager to help us with photos. They were great!!

    Congratulations!

    I would say just seek out your favorite photo spots in the park and incorporate some baby hints into them.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    Great news, congratulations!

    I'm sure Minnie and Mickey would be happy to work with you on pictures, don't be afraid to ask them!

    Then use those pictures to advertise to family and friends...

    Is there anything like the birthday pins that Disney has to show your expecting?
    That would be a fun thing for your pics.
    Congrats by the way!

    Great idea, but those rides don't particularly cater to the pregnant...

    Your pictures are great, Kelly! I've been sitting here racking my brain, trying to think of something creative to suggest to the OP... but your ideas with the shirts and the sign really take the cake!

    Thank you!

    I wanted to do a picture on Splash SO badly! Every single ride with a ride photo is listed as not recommended to ride while pregnant. I almost rode Splash anyway, since the concern is only of they have an emergency stop, but then decided that I would never forgive myself if something happened. Ride photos are the best when you can do them, though!!

    Haha thanks!! The T-shirts got us a lot of "congratulations" from CMs and other park goers. My husband hated the extra attention but I thought it was so nice to have so many positive interactions with strangers.

    Years ago I would have suggested the Peoplemover. Lord knows that more children were conceived on that attraction than any other.

    LOL!

    Here's an idea, how about utilizing the ballons have everyone in the family hold ballons for their respective genders (Minnie and Mickey) and then having your wife holding an extra balloon! I suppose you would need to know the baby's gender though.. Just a thought! :P
