What are Magic Shots?

Magic shots are photos taken of you and/or your group on the parks and some magic is added to them later by Disney PhotoPass. All Magic Shots, animated and still are part of your Memory Maker entitlement. You must have an active Memory Maker entitlement at the time animated Magic Shots are taken in order for them to be added to your account.

Here is a list of Magic Shots that you can find at Disney World, click on the expandable menu to find exact locations for these Magic Shots as well as additional example photos.

ANIMATED MAGIC SHOTS

Disney World now has Animated Magic Shots! They take a regular picture of you, and then an animated version of a character is added to the shot. So along with always asking “do you have any magic shots?” I would recommend also asking “do you have any of the new animated magic shots?” You never know when they might pop up! When they first started showing up, I asked just about every Photopass photographer if they had these new animated magic shots, and if not, where I could find them. But I was only able to find 2. Last year, I had a little better luck, finding Baymax, Flying Tinker Bell in all four parks, and Lumiere again, but it still wasn’t as easy as I expected. But lately, I've been getting animated magic shots when I didn't even realize it! So, keep asking!

The Animated Magic Shots are .mp4 files. Right now, you can only download them if you purchase Memory Maker. You can't purchase them separately. Animated Magic Shots only show up in your PhotoPass account, if you have Memory Maker active at the time the photo is taken.

 

MAGIC SHOTS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

No Longer Available
All Magic Shots are included with the purchase of Memory Maker. If you are missing the “magic” from some of your shots when you look at them in PhotoPass, just call (407)-560-4300 or contact them online and they will add it for you.
