UPDATE: Disney PhotoPass Service has extended this photo opportunity past March 15. It will now be available on a nightly basis (weather permitting) until further notice.

Tangled” is my favorite movie, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider are my favorite Disney characters, and the romantic boat ride with the lanterns in the film is my favorite movie scene, so I suppose you could say I was just a bit excited to learn about the latest photo opportunity from Disney PhotoPass Service!

For a limited time, when you visit Magic Kingdom Park, the PhotoPass photographer stationed near Rapunzel Tower in the evening will have a luminous lantern you can include in your photos.

So let your hair down and unleash your best smolder! The gleam and glow of the lantern creates a photo that’s warm and real and bright. And don’t worry, we’ll get everyone’s nose right in the photo.

You can get tangled up in this dazzling photo opportunity every evening starting around dusk through March 15, weather permitting.

Got a dream to make your visit the best day ever? You can also meet Rapunzel at Princess Fairytale Hall while in Magic Kingdom Park! She’ll be there to tell you about her adventures, and a Disney PhotoPass photographer will be there to capture your experience so you can simply relax and enjoy the moment.

Don’t forget this towering offer – with Memory Maker, you can take home all of your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos from your Walt Disney World Resort vacation for one price.


  • Does anyone know if this is still happening during the summer months? I’ll be there in August!

  • This is such a beautiful photo opportunity! I wish it would still be available later in the year. My first ever Disney trip will be august 30th- sept 13th for my 21st birthday and I would of loved to have this shot! Tangled is my favourite movie EVER!!!!! 🙁

  • This is amazing!!! Too bad we won’t be back for about 2 more years to celebrate graduation… I love this so much! I’ve always tried to take a lantern picture over there, but the new photo shoot is a dream come true ?☀️

  • Honeymooning in October! PLEASE extend until then! <3 He is my Eugenie.

    • We are too! Best. Day. EVER!

  • Please don’t end it!!! I was SO excited to take this picture but I won’t be there until May ?

  • Okay Disney. Meet me half way, at least extend through the Florida schools spring break. What is three more days of magic at the Magic Kindgom? IT IS EVERYTHING!

    • You got it! There’s no need to go running, and racing, and dancing, and chasing, and leaping and bounding to this photo spot – it will be available until further notice.

  • Extension please! I was so impressed with this addition for Tangled and will miss out by one week.

    • Extension granted! Enjoy this photo opportunity and your visit!

  • I have a dream that this will still be there in June when my little Tangled loving princess will be there.

  • That is to bad. We are visiting in November.. favorite Princess is Repunzel.

  • I’m really disappointed that this Memory Maker opportunity will be around for just 2 weeks! Tangled is one of my favorite Disney movies. My trip is in October and I was so excited about this when I saw it, only to find out it won’t be there. I’ve already pre-purchased my Memory Maker package.

  • I am so disappointed this is a limited opportunity. My friend had hers done at the princess half marathon and I was so excited to do it when we’re at Disney next ?

  • Rats! I was hoping my kids could do this in April.

  • We are visiting at the end of March – please don’t end it March 15th!!!

  • Please continue this as I will be visiting in the winter.

  • oh that sounds awesome, but I am visiting with my sister the next week! We would of loved to have taken a picture like this. 🙁

  • I’m disappointed it’s ending March 15. We are visiting in April and we were hoping to get this photo opportunity while at the Magic Kingdom! I hope it gets extended.

  • Oh no! I arrive a week late! I’ve been looking forward to this since the first time I saw it. Bummer.

  • Please keep the light glowing! Two weeks is not enough time to enjoy the Magic!

  • So sad to read this ends the 15th. It was the thing I was looking forward to most this trip at the end of March. Please keep it going!

  • Really hope they’ll make this permanent for those of us will be there later this year!

  • Great idea! We are going to just miss it by 4 days! That said, are these lightblaterns available for purchase in the park?

  • I would love to see this go longer, I am not getting there until the end of April!!!

  • I’ll be there 2 weeks later!!! :'(

  • I’m with you Morgan… we’ll be there for Easter, and my niece would LOVE this!!

  • Ah, not March 15th! Please make this a permanent location! I’m moving to WDW as a cast member for the fall program and I am dying for this shot. I know of plenty of other girls who really wanted to do this too!

  • I hope this goes past March 15th! Going to be there the end of March and I really want to do this!

  • You’re breaking my heart that this is only through the 15th! Please make this a nightly thing!!

    • Well we certainly don’t want to break your heart! So we’ve extended this photo opportunity past March 15 until further notice 🙂

  • I wish this would go until after spring break!
