When it comes to Magic Shots, I think Disney PhotoPass Service offers the most variety during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Birds, bees, fairies and flowers – we’ve got it all!  

Check out my five favorite Magic Shots you can capture with Disney PhotoPass Service at EPCOT during the festival. I’ve noted where each one is available, but be sure to ask every photographer you visit throughout the park what Magic Shot they offer at their individual location.

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Isabela Magic Shot

I can’t talk about Bruno flowers and magic and not mention Isabela. For this Magic Shot, strike a picture-perfect pose. Wait, hang on? Perfect, practiced poses? None of that here. Let loose. The people walking past you might wonder what you’re doing but just go with it. This Magic Shot is available by the water near Journey Into Imagination With Figment.

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Orange Bird Magic Shot

At Walt Disney World Resort, anything is possible. Keep your eyes peeled for this sweet Orange Bird Magic Shot, available near the main entrance of the park and at photo spots next to Spaceship Earth.

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Spike the Bee Magic Shot

Buzz buzz! I know just what you want in your photo: an insect! Thankfully, Spike the Bee is minding his own beeswax. It’s like you’ll hardly even notice he’s there while the photographer takes your photo. Spike can fly into your photo anywhere in World Showcase.   

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Butterfly Magic Shot

Naturally, I’m sure you’re thinking, Emily, I’m intrigued by insects as a Magic Shot genre, tell me more. Absolutely. How about a photo with a bunch of insects? According to my very limited and highly unofficial research, a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope. Enjoying the only time in my life I’ll probably type this sentence: Get a photo with a kaleidoscope near the entrance to World Showcase, close to Port of Entry.    

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Magic Shot

Lastly, you can sWING by any Disney PhotoPass location at EPCOT to capture this pixie-dusted Magic Shot. You can be sweet or sassy just like Tinker Bell, or you can be awkward like me. All are acceptable. Regardless, your photographer will make sure you look great.

If your inner fairy just won’t go back in (happens to us all), you can make your own magic with one of our newest Disney PhotoPass Lenses. It’s available to use anywhere at Walt Disney World Resort through the My Disney Experience app with the purchase of Disney Genie+ service.*

Enjoy letting your imagination grow wild at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!
