Rain – some people love it; some people hate it. I, for one, love it. I’m the type to splash in puddles and embrace the storm until rainbows appear. Here at Disney PhotoPass Service, we make sure that no matter rain or shine, you can capture your magical memories.
When I’m in the parks and it decides to pour, one of my first thoughts is to head to one of the four Disney PhotoPass Studios located throughout Walt Disney World Resort. These Disney PhotoPass Photo Studios are open regardless of the weather and don’t require separate reservations!
First, we have the Royal Portrait Studio in Magic Kingdom Park*. It’s located on the backside of Cinderella Castle in Sir Mickey’s. We love catering to princesses and princes, but all are welcome to capture photos here!
Over at Disney Springs, the studio is located next to the Marketplace Co-Op. This studio offers seasonal backdrops, like this Valentine’s Day one.
We also have a studio in EPCOT*. Located in Norway, The Wandering Reindeer is a perfect way to escape the weather. It’s fittingly themed to Disney’s “Frozen” and your photos taken there will surely melt your heart.
Finally, we have our studio in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Located on the second floor of this resort, you can capture photos in front of a standard background while showing off all your best poses.
Disney PhotoPass photographers have some extra magic that is only available when it rains. This Magic Shot is available at many locations throughout the parks. Whenever it rains, just ask your nearest photographer for the rainy-day Mickey Mouse Magic Shot. I recently went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park*, and it started to downpour. I mean, my shoes were more water than rubber. But hakuna matata, my friends! I pulled out my raincoat with Mickey Mouse-shaped snacks on it and decided to play in the rain. Along the way, I found a photographer, and, with some extra pixie dust, I got the most adorable pal in my photo.
Don’t let the rain get you down! After grabbing your super cute Magic Shot and capturing the best studio photos, try out some of our Disney PhotoPass Lenses. These lenses are available to guests who purchase Disney Genie+ service and Annual Passholders and can be found on your My Disney Experience app**. Here are some fun lenses to use while you’re waiting for the rain to magically disappear!
Disney PhotoPass Service has so many ways to get you that picture-perfect souvenir – even when it’s raining. From Disney PhotoPass Studios to a rainy-day Magic Shot, to our Lenses, I have no doubt that you’ll have a magical day with Disney PhotoPass Service, rain, or shine!
*Valid theme park admission and park reservation required.
**With the purchase of Disney Genie+ service, Walt Disney World guests can access many Disney PhotoPass Lenses in the My Disney Experience app as soon as they enter the park. Annual Passholders can access many Disney PhotoPass Lenses in the My Disney Experience app starting on the later of March 20, 2023 or the first use of their Annual Pass. Select Disney PhotoPass Lenses are accessible only within designated areas of Walt Disney World Resort. Other Disney PhotoPass Lenses will remain accessible in the My Disney Experience app until 5:59 a.m. on the 45th day after the day on which the Disney Genie+ service was used or, for Annual Passholders, until the expiration or cancellation of the Annual Pass. Certain states and localities are excluded. Annual Passholder offerings are subject to change or cancellation without notice. Many Disney PhotoPass Lenses use technology that detects the coordinates of key points on a guest’s face and/or hands and may be used only by guests 18 years of age and older who have consented to use of this technology. Therefore, guests unable to provide such consent, as well as guests under 18 years of age, will have fewer lenses available to use. To access Disney PhotoPass Lenses, an eligible mobile device with the My Disney Experience app with access to the device’s camera and location is required. Use of Disney PhotoPass Lenses is subject to the Terms and Conditions. Subject to restrictions and change without notice.
