New Animated Magic Shots Add Extra Disney Magic to Your Photos

Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort can now have some Disney animation added to their memories and it is all part of Memory Maker!

When visiting one of the locations listed below, simply ask a Disney PhotoPass Photographer for an Animated Magic Shot.

When you visit you’ll be surprised to find that we have applied animation to your photo featuring a Disney character.

As part of your Memory Maker entitlement you’ll be able to download the video file of your Animated Magic Shot to post online and share with friends.

Also, be on the lookout for special Animated Magic Shots coming this holiday season to Magic Kingdom Park and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party nights. I’ll share a sneak peek of those with you soon.


  • These are cool! I hope they become popular enough that they will do this at other parks, like Disneyland Anaheim!

  • I asked for this on Hollywood Boulevard at DHS on Saturday. The photographer instructed me that I had to see another photographer down the street. I went to the indicated photographer, asked for the Animated Magic Shot and unfortunately, when I logged onto my PhotoPass account, this was not what I got. I got regular Magic Shots, which would be fine, except that I was told to make a frightened face and now I’m apparently scared my Olaf.

  • Oh my gosh, this is FANTISTIC!! This Sullivan can hardly wait to return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios so that SULLEY can photobomb our family photo! Woohoooooo! What FUN!

  • Oh my gosh – too fun! We’ll be arriving at WDW this Wednesday and I can’t wait to add some of this fun to our Memory Maker package! I’ll be anxious to see what’s included for the MVMCP.

  • Welcome to the blog Ms. Marie!

  • I will be there for a week starting Monday.. My mind is not the best. So will there be a sign or something or do i need to write this info down so I don’t forget to ask? Can’t wait. Haven’t been back since I stopped working there to work at DL.

  • Hi Lisa! Animated Magic Shots are available at Walt Disney World, but we hope to someday offer them at Disneyland as well.

  • Hi Heather! Just visit any of the locations identified above, and our Photographers will make sure to provide you with a new Animated Magic Shot! They are only offered at select magical locations, but feel free to ask any Photographer whether they have an Animated option…we’re launching more great digital content every day it seems, so it can’t hurt to ask! And yes, the files are downloadable so you can easily view again and again, or share with friends and family. Enjoy!

  • Hi Debbie! How exciting to be planning your next Disney vacation–and selecting the Memory Maker product is a great way to make sure you preserve all of those magical moments! There is no extra charge for our new Animated Magic Shots–they are included with your purchase of Memory Maker. How’s that for some extra pixie?!

  • How about Disneyland?????

  • DO you have to ask for these just like the regular magic shot? Are they going to be downloadable?

  • this looks like a wonderful addition to the memory maker package. I have never used it in the past but am looking forward to purchasing it for our upcoming trip. Is there an extra fee to put the animation on our pictures? Is there a limit on how many we can get? A little sprinkle of pixie dust to our wonderful photos is an added bonus!
