The first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the 2018 season begins tomorrow and I’ll be on hand to report the festivities. Today, Disney Parks released the official Photopass Magic Shots and Animated Magic Shots for the parties!
Disney – During the party, while you’re feeling the warmth of the Christmas season (and it’s not just the Florida weather), Disney PhotoPass photographers will be making your spirits even brighter with merry photo opportunities! Below are the special photo ops you’ll find during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Have a taste for sweet Magic Shots? The (NEW) Mickey Mouse Cookie Magic Shot is available in Adventureland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland, while the Candy Cane Magic Shot can be found in front of Cinderella Castle and on the bridges leading to Liberty Square, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is a beloved party staple, and if you love it as much as I do, you’ll adore these photo opportunities featuring a few parade favorites! The Toy Soldiers can march into your photo on Main Street, U.S.A., and the photographer at the entrance to the park can offer a Magic Shot featuring a cheerful reindeer and gingerbread man.
Disney Characters can make an appearance in your photos too! A Magic Shot featuring a festively dressed Tinker Bell will be available on Main Street, U.S.A., and look for Olaf to pop into photos taken on the bridges leading to Liberty Square, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland.
For photos with a traditional Christmas vibe, visit any Disney PhotoPass photographer in the park (except for those at Character Experience locations) to take a Mistletoe Magic Shot, and get a special Animated Magic Shot when you meet Santa Claus.
Note from KtP – I do not recommend meeting Santa at the Christmas Party. I recommend meeting him at Hollywood Studios or Disney Springs. Use your party time for other characters and shows!
At various locations around the park, photographers will be offering holly-jolly props for you to include in your photos, including the new Tinker Bell lantern! You’ll find this new pixie-dusted prop in Fantasyland near Enchanted Tales with Belle.
All these festive Magic Shot locations will be added to Character Locator, so you can build a complete party plan!
