Birds Eye Photos and Video Now Offered at Magic Kingdom Park

Here’s how it works: find a photographer in the East Plaza Garden at Magic Kingdom Park. He or she will assist you with capturing two one-of-a-kind photos and a super-zoom video from a unique angle above the Magic Kingdom.

The photos and video from this limited-time opportunity are included as part of a Memory Maker. If you don’t have Memory Maker, you can purchase the individual photo downloads for $16.95 each, but the video can only be downloaded and shared by those with Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day.

August 19 is #DisneyPhotoPassDay at Walt Disney World

Disney World PhotoPass Day

On Friday, Aug. 19, 2016 the Walt Disney World Resort will celebrate the art and fun of photography at Disney Parks through the first-ever #DisneyPhotoPassDay, a one-day celebration that will feature exciting offerings and experiences, including:

Special Character Experiences at Magic Kingdom Park & Epcot

Special character experiences will be available at Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot, where Disney PhotoPass photographers will capture you encounter with Pinocchio, Gideon and Foulfellow in Storybook Circus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

At Epcot, a friend or foe will join some favorite Disney Characters around World Showcase, including Mushu and Mulan in the China Pavilion; Snow White and Dopey in the Germany Pavilion; and the Queen of Hearts, who will join Alice in the United Kingdom Pavilion.

Check the My Disney Experience app or the Epcot Times Guide on Aug. 19 for these Disney Characters’ schedule.

Complimentary Photo Locations at All Disney Parks & Disney Springs

There will be one location at each of the four theme parks (and Disney Springs) at the Walt Disney World Resort where a Disney PhotoPass photographer will capture you special moment. That photo will be available in the My Disney Experience app at Walt Disney World Resort to download and share at no charge as part of the #DisneyPhotoPassDay celebration. (Normal My Disney Experience registration is required to access the image).

Participate in a Disney PhotoPass Challenge

You can complete a Disney PhotoPass Challenge at any of the Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort to get a Disney PhotoPass photo on us. All you need to do is get their photo taken by a Disney PhotoPass Photographer at each of the designated challenge locations on Aug. 19. Once you've stopped by all of the locations, you can visit a Disney PhotoPass Sales Center to claim your Disney PhotoPass photo. At the Walt Disney World Resort, participants will receive a voucher for one Disney PhotoPass download.
