Holiday Magic Shots are now available at each Walt Disney World theme park as well as Disney Springs. If you’ve never taken a Magic Shot before, you can ask your photographer during your visit which Magic Shots are available in their location. Some of the holiday Magic Shots include adorable mistletoe magic (the Disney Parks Blog in their announcement of the new photo ops stresses that this is perfect for “single riders,” too!), plus photos featuring ornaments, Christmas trees, Disney characters, gifts, and so much more.

A Super Zoom Magic Shot is available in the Magic Kingdom for the holiday season, just make your way to the PhotoPass photographer outside the Plaza Restaurant to take yours. If you are sending digital holiday cards, this could be a fun photo to include!

Disney Springs is a great place to stop for holiday photos while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with the Disney PhotoPass Studio located right in the Marketplace neighborhood. The Disney PhotoPass Studio offers virtual backdrops so you can quickly take a variety of holiday photos right in Disney Springs (these would also be great for holiday cards!)

While in Disney Springs, stop by Once Upon a Toy to take a photo with Santa, now through December 24, 2021. A photographer is present for photo ops with Santa, but selfies are still welcomed! Don’t forget, there is a virtual queue in place for this experience so be sure to check the My Disney Experience app during your visit for access to the line, and since this is an indoor experience, masks are required to be worn in the photos.

Photographers are select locations around the Walt Disney World Resort will also have seasonal handheld props to use for photos. And, if you add Memory Maker to your Walt Disney World vacation package, you’ll be able to download all of these photos for one price.
