Enjoy New Disney PhotoPass Experiences at Walt Disney World Resort

Disney PhotoPass Service is constantly exploring new ways to capture your picture-perfect vacation memories at Walt Disney World Resort. The team has recently introduced several new offerings, so today I’m excited to share my favorites.

Capture Cinderella Castle like never before with a limited-time photo and video experience from Disney PhotoPass Service – featuring you! During daylight hours, look for a photographer in the East Plaza Garden at Magic Kingdom Park who will assist you with capturing two one-of-a-kind photos and a super-zoom video from a unique angle above the theme park.

The photos and video from this limited-time opportunity are included as part of a Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day entitlement, so all you have to do is smile and share! If you don’t have one of these entitlements, you can purchase the individual photo downloads for $16.95 each, but the video can only be downloaded and shared by those with Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day.

If you’re a fan of this bird’s-eye perspective, you’ll love our three newest Animated Magic Shots. These videos give you a fun way of remembering and sharing moments when you meet Disney Friends.  

Everyone who takes Animated Magic Shots can preview them in their Disney account, but only those with Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day can download and share them.

We know how much you enjoy capturing the adventures, thrills and classic stories of your Disney vacation while onboard your favorite attractions. When it was time to launch Disney PhotoPass Service’s 13th attraction photo opportunity at Walt Disney World Resort, there was no better fit than the Haunted Mansion! To preview your attraction photo, be sure to wear a MagicBand or MagicBand 2 icon in a MagicKeeper that’s linked to your Disney account while riding in your Doom Buggy.

These new offerings are excellent ways to get even more out of your Memory Maker purchase. With Memory Maker, you’ll take home unlimited digital downloads of all your easy-to-share Disney PhotoPass photos and videos captured at more than 100 Walt Disney World Resort locations for one price.* Learn more here.  

Enjoy capturing these and so many other one-of-a-kind memories with Disney PhotoPass Service during your next visit.

  • Do you have to have a magic band for the HM photopass option? We’re staying off property and do not have magic bands. Thanks!

  • We went to Haunted Mansion today both with a FP and standby. We have a Memory Maker. But no haunted mansio photos are in there….only Buzz LightYear, Space Mtn, and photopass photographer pic in front of the castle. I even asked where one “taps” for photos at HM. The CM said the system just knows. Is it delayed seeing them in Memory Maker?

  • We got our Magic Kingdom shot today, and it’s just fantastic. I think it’s going to be hugely popular, so I hope it will become permanent.

  • We love the idea of these new photo pass options. Do you know what “limited time only” means? We’ll be there August 7-15 and would love to add this to our Memory Maker! Thanks!
