Dead Set on Capturing Halloween Photos? Visit the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs

You know those people who are accused of celebrating the holidays far too early? Well, I’m proudly one of them!

I begin celebrating Halloween in earnest on September 1 by playing Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” and “Halloweentown” on a loop, downing pumpkin-flavored treats, and decorating my home in orange and black (well, only the interior so I don’t upset my HOA). The way I see it, it’s a wonderfully wicked time of year, and October just isn’t long enough to celebrate it! I also make the full transition to Christmas beginning November 1, but that’s a story for another time.  

As someone who loves getting into the spirit, you can trust me when I dole out Halloween photo advice for your visit to Walt Disney World Resort: If you’re looking for frightfully festive photos, start with the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs!

In addition to standard portrait backdrops and a wide variety of Disney-themed virtual backdrops, this studio offers virtual backdrops that celebrate this spooky time of year. 

If you need to fill even more dead space in your photo album (or social media pages), you can unearth backdrops that feature scenes from the Haunted Mansion.

Feeling heroic? Then this backdrop is perfect for you. At this time of year, I’d probably find myself reveling with Maleficent rather than fighting her, but that’s just a misguided personal preference.

For those who want to start celebrating Day of the Dead early, there’s something for you too! You can capture vibrant photos with backdrops themed to Disney•Pixar’s “Coco.”    

Reservations are not required to visit the studio, and if you have Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day, photos captured here are included as part of your entitlement!*

Just bring a smile (or a villainous smirk) to the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs, and the photographers will use their tricks to give you a few treats!
