PhotoPass Magic Shots

Does anyone have a list of what magic shots are available? We are going to try to get all of them during our September trip!

The best thing to do is ask the photographers, they love to talk about them.

Goofy hang glider at DCA, ask by the Grizzly Peak waterfall or on the bridge near Ariel's.

Stitch at DCA, ask on Hollywood Backlot or BVS. Maybe other places.

Mickey and/or Minnie on a bench. I've gotten it in NOS and at the castle, try other places.

Baby Simba near greenery, try Adventureland.

Hitchhiking Ghosts near HM, needs a lot of open space.

Darth Vader, requires a light saber, got this one at the hub on Main St, Tomorrowland was really busy, I think it should be there.

Captain Hook, requires a sword, near water. Most people report getting this near ROA. I had a photographer offer to take the raft to Tom Sawyer's Island and take it by the pirate flag. He also did Mickey & Minnie on benches there. I filled out positive feedback at City Hall, totally awesome!

Tinkerbell can be anywhere on Main St, hub or Mickey face under the train station, I've had the best luck at the castle and train station. I was told no at Partners statue, but then I got one there on another day, so who knows.

Balloons are the same as Tinkerbell.

I asked about balloons or Tinkerbell from a photographer at the sword in the stone and was told Main St only, and no Simba in Fantasyland. Your mileage may vary.

I'm sure I forgot some, but that's what I recall off the top of my head.


Edited to add: I've also gotten Zero during Halloween when the pumpkin is up on Main St.

Edited again to add: I also got kissing a frog in Adventureland.

Did Kiwigirls post a list of the locations or types of magic shots in her Photopass Superthread? If not, I'm sure she will.

Otherwise, go to the sticky Photopass/The Cheesier the Better photo thread (by Judy in Boise) in the DL Community section and start at the last page, working your way backwards so you see the more recent ones first. That thread is filled with photos of every possible magic shot known to mankind, many of them posted and provided by Dizneydaz!

Thanks, Sherry! I'll check that thread. I did look at the PhotoPass Superthread first, but didn't find a list.

They are real swords and lightsabers but if you are near a shop the pp photogs will often "borrow" props for you
