Top PhotoPass Locations You Don’t Want to Miss

There are so many locations to capture magical moments at Walt Disney World Resort.  Disney’s PhotoPass locations with professional photographers give you the opportunity to have quality photographs from your vacation.  Plus it allows you to not worry about pulling your phone or camera out to try to capture every magical moment and everyone can be in the photo.  No more dark photos or half of your party not paying attention.  Disney makes sure you go home with the perfect memory and maybe even some magical moments to share!  Here are just a few of my favorite PhotoPass locations.

Tangled Lantern

Book Your Vacation with Mousing Around Travel

This is one location that I still haven’t managed to snag!  This location is in front of the tangled-themed restrooms in Fantasyland.  I know this isn’t a location you would expect to get a great picture but it is one of the most magical captures!  If you are on your honeymoon this is a great spot to capture a romantic photograph! 

Tinker Bell Lantern

Another amazing lantern location that can be harder to find features Tink inside of a lantern.  Some people have been able to find it at both Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  It is only offered at night so be on the lookout for this magical moment! 

The Haunted Mansion Courtyard

If you see a Disney PhotoPass cast member standing outside the Haunted Mansion make sure to ask the photographer for a Magic Shot.  You may end up going home with a few hitchhiking ghosts! 

The Journey of the Little Mermaid Bridge

This photo is a beautiful capture day or night.  You can find the PhotoPass cast member standing near the entrance of the Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction in Fantasyland. 

France at Epcot

Everyone wants a picture with the Eiffel Tower!  You can usually find a PhotoPass cast member in the France Pavilion ready to capture a beautiful shot in front of the fountain with the Eiffel Tower in the background.  If the Epcot Flower and Garden show is happening it makes it an even more beautiful capture!

Magic Kingdom Castle Shot

As you head down Main Street U.S.A you will find many PhotoPass cast members ready to capture the perfect castle picture.  Don’t forget to also ask for a Magic Shot in this location.  They won’t just take one photo and are willing to do family and individual shots to make sure everyone in your party gets their perfect castle photo memory!

Select Dining Experiences

Many of the dining experiences and restaurants will have PhotoPass cast members available to snap a photo at the entrance of the restaurant or with one of the characters during your Character meal.  No standing in a half hour long line to get a photo with Pluto when you can walk right up and get your photo taken for example at ‘Ohana’s Best Friend’s Breakfast.

Virtual Backgrounds at Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs

If you can’t find your perfect PhotoPass location, stop here while exploring Disney Springs and they will put the background behind you!  If your child has just visited Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs walk around the corner and grab a few more magical shots with your Prince or Princess.

Attraction Photos

Many of Disney’s attractions will capture your facial expressions as you drop, twist or turn through the ride.  Be prepared for some hilarious photos!  There is always a rush to see your expression on the preview screen as you exit the attraction.  Some of the attractions now offer an animated magic shot with a video of your experience. 

Character Experiences

The expression on your child’s face as they meet their favorite character is a memory every parent wants to remember forever.  Is there anything more magical?!  At each character Meet’n’Greet location you will find PhotoPass cast members who will be snap happy as they capture the entire experience for you!  These are some of my favorite photos to come home with that capture just how magical Walt Disney World Resort really is. 

To preview, purchase or download any of these photos you must be wearing an active MagicBand or card that is linked to your My Disney Experience account.  These photos can be purchased in advance with Memory Maker for a discounted price of $169 with unlimited downloads for 45 days from when the photo was taken.  You can purchase it once you have arrived as well but for a higher price.  You can always follow the Disney PhotoPass Facebook page  Here for the latest updates and opportunities. There are so many magical PhotoPass locations for you to find! Happy memory making!
