JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Smithsonian National Museum of American History seeks to capture your magical memories.

The museum is asking the public to share photos from past trips to Walt Disney World for a project they are working on.

Photos can be of you, friends and family. Along with the photo, you must also submit a story of what the visit meant to you, as well as when the visit took place, with whom, and what feelings it evoked.

“Have you posed for a photo in front of Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella’s Castle?” Maybe take a selfie while eating an iconic Mickey Premium Bar or get an autograph from a famous character? asks the museum on its website. “If so, we want you to share your photos with us!”

Museum officials encourage photos from all decades and time periods, “especially as Disney parks change and evolve over time.”

The museum also accepts guest photos at Disneyland California.
