This is the scenario: You arrive at Walt Disney World and you see all of the PhotoPass photographers. You have your Magic Band or your PhotoPass card ready to go and maybe you have purchased Memory Maker as well. You are ready to get some great pictures of your vacation! But, do you know about the extra bit of magic that can be added to your photos? They are called Magic Shots. Magic Shots are little bits of magic (characters, animation, etc.) that can be added to your photos after they are taken and they will then appear on the My Disney Experience app.
Magic Shots can be found throughout all four of the Walt Disney World Parks. They change regularly and seasonally. For example, if you are attending any special events such as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you will want to ask for the special Magic Shots available at these parties. Currently, there are some special Magic Shots at Epcot celebrating the Flower and Garden Festival including Orange Bird.
So, where do you find all of these Magic Shots? Take a look at the list below. This list includes all of the Magic Shots currently offered in each park. Keep in mind though that these are subject to change and there may be PhotoPass photographers present intermittently at these locations throughout the day. If you do not find a photographer there the first time and you really want to grab that extra bit of magic in your picture, stop back again!
