By using Disney PhotoPass Service, you’ll capture photos you can’t take on your own: photos of the entire family, of you enjoying beloved attractions, in front of virtual backgrounds, and today’s topic, Magic Shots, which feature Disney Characters and other exciting surprises that PhotoPass adds to your pictures.

When you take a Magic Shot with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, you never know who – or what – will appear in your photo when you preview it later in the My Disney Experience app or online! From Disney pals like Simba, Pascal, Mickey Mouse, Chip, Sebastian, Bambi, or Stitch, to fun additions like balloons or your favorite refreshing treat, the Magic Shot possibilities are endless.

With so many options, today we’re featuring the top five Magic Shots available right now at Walt Disney World Resort:

Chill with Olaf in a Magic Shot available in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios near Echo Lake, or at Magic Kingdom Park near the Partners Statue and on the bridge leading into Tomorrowland or Liberty Square.

After taking a photo amid the floating mountains in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you might spot a special addition flying into your picture.

Be our guest and take this photo in front of Beast’s enchanted castle at Magic Kingdom Park.

Don’t dishonor your cow: Give Mushu the respect he deserves by including him in your photo at the China Pavilion in Epcot.

Use a spark of imagination to picture Figment in your photo. Available from any photographer in Epcot’s World Showcase.

Be sure to ask your photographer for these Magic Shots!

If you want to discover all of the Magic Shots currently available at Walt Disney World Resort, visit the Disney PhotoPass Service Facebook page, navigate to the Photos tab, and then to the Albums. There you’ll find a photo album for each park showing the current Magic Shot offerings and where they can typically be found. We’re always adding new options and locations, so be sure to check it out right before your visit.

And don’t forget, Magic Shots are included as part of an active Memory Maker entitlement!

Note that these Magic Shots are only available during daylight hours and cannot be taken at Character Experience locations. Some locations are only staffed intermittently by PhotoPass photographers.
