The Smithsonian team at the National Museum of American History is working on a new project that you can be a part of.

If you’ve gotten an autograph from a famous character or posed in front of Cinderella’s castle, they want to see them. The museum is looking for images that capture your experience as a guest at Disneyland or Disney World.

Here’s more about what they’re looking for:

Photos of you, your friends, and your families at Disneyland or Walt Disney World and the story of what the photograph and visit mean to you. When was the visit, and with whom? What feelings did it evoke for you? We want to see photographs that show Disney Parks as you experienced them: posing with characters, kids worn out and sleeping, families, couples, individuals, people of all abilities, ethnicities, ages, on rides, eating together, looking at maps—everyday stuff! All decades and time periods, especially as Disney Parks change and evolve over time. We love candid and posed, even fingers on the lens are A-OK. We can crop photos for composition, so don’t hold back on blurry or double-exposed photos. We would appreciate the highest-resolution images you have available—scans are fine. Please send images in jpg, pdf, png, or tiff format. We can’t wait to see your favorites!

To submit, send your photos with your name, a few sentences about the pictures, and your Disney Park story.
