Comments

  • A few comments, I did the Peter Pan shadow magic shot around 2 pm today. Still not showing up on my Disney app. Anyone who’s experiencing the same?
    Also we went to Epcot to do the 11 country shots, we got only one Uk. At Canada there were no PhotoPass folks to be found. I asked a few cast members as to what’s going on. They said there’s a few photographers working today, so they’ll be here before the day ends but we don’t know when.
    I’ve heard rumors that some of the PhotoPass opportunities from today are in the process of becoming permanent features. Wanted to hear from the experts about that.

  • Why can’t this be a once a month thing? I would love more diverse character opportunities at Disney Parks.

  • all the hype i thought there would have been more?

  • super disappointed Maleficent will not be available

  • Will you have any days like this around Thanksgiving?

  • This year is a let down compared to last year. You can meet Cruella and Jafar at the halloween party, Baloo and King Louie met at animal kingdom like one month or two ago, and Jawas used to meet at launch bay. The only rare ones are Pinocchio, Geppetto, and Bolt. Last year was better due to that fact that the rare ones were princess atta, meeko, timon, mushu, and dopey.
