I haven’t blogged about Disney in a while, because well writing about Disney makes me sad, as I am not at Disney and I am at work trapped in this cubicle for what feels like an eternity.
Anyway, yesterday I was asked about the “magic shots” at Disney, a co-worker of mine is currently planning a trip to Disney, and she was wondering how she could get them.
I explained that the minute she stepped into the park she needed to get a photo pass card, and every time you come to a photographer who is not on a tri-pod simply ask for magic shots. They will always say yes, if they have been trained to take these shots. I have only been told no once, but it was her first day and she had not been trained in the shots, but she immediately directed me to the next photographer to get the shot.
When I go to Disney, I always buy the photo pass CD, you get all of your shots, and then I make it a game to see how many different poses I can get on CD. It is pricey, but I normally get 300-500 pictures on the CD, which makes it worth it.
Yes I am that vain, one time I spent the entire day at Animal Kingdom going from photographer to photographer getting pictures, just for kicks. I managed to snag over 200, and ride rides and sit through Nemo. It can be done!
Anyway, here are a few I have snagged over the years, and I still have quite a few I want to get.
Some Magic Shots are only available at certain events ie, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, or specific parks, like Animal Kingdom has Simba.
Note: keep you eyes out for photographers that have props like a box, because they will almost always do Magic Shots (note the LOVE Tink!!!! )
Here are a few of my favorite Magic Shots I have gathered over the years. Most were taken on my last day of travel (which I am not dressed the cutest but hey I was at Disney world, does it matter?)
I have heard amazing rumors you can get a sword fight with Captain Hook in Adventureland, and you can get Jasmine & Aladdin at Epcot, but I have not been lucky enough to snag those yet.
Guess I have another reason to go to the Magic Kingdom….
Until Next time
