Zootopia Animated Magic Shot Now Available at Walt Disney World Resort

Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like Sahara Square and the Rainforest District, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where anyone can be anything.

While this city is entirely populated by animals, Disney PhotoPass Service has the perfect opportunity “fur” humans to join in on the Zootopia fun when visiting Walt Disney World Resort!

Get this Animated Magic Shot featuring Nick Wilde by visiting a Disney PhotoPass Photographer at the entrance to Magic Kingdom Park or on Hollywood Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

All guests can view Animated Magic Shots in their accounts before they expire, but you must have an active Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day entitlement to download and share them online.

 

Disney Reduces Price of PhotoPass Memory Maker Packages

Memory Maker

Effective today, the price for the Memory Maker packages from Disney PhotoPass has been reduced.

The standard Memory Maker package, which guests can use immediately when it is purchased, is now priced at $169, instead of the previous $199.

If guests buy the advance purchase Memory Maker package, which has a 3 day delay before it can be used, the price is now priced at $149, down from $169.

This returns the package price to what was in place before the price was increased in December of 2014.

Guests who purchased the advance Memory Maker package at the higher price are being issued a store credit for use at MyDisneyPhotoPass.com.

Memory Maker gives guests unlimited digital downloads of photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers throughout the parks, restaurants and on select attractions.

Disney’s PhotoPass service has now introduced a new type of photo available now with the purchase of the Memory Maker package.

Building on the existing Magic Shots, which feature character overlays on your pictures, Magic Shots has now been expanded to include animation, in the form of a video clip.

There are currently four locations setup to produce Magic Shots – Epcot (behind Spaceship Earth), Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Hollywood Boulevard, Epcot at Norway Pavilion, Disney’s Animal Kingdom on the bridge near Expedition Everest.

Guests who have purchased the $199 (or $149 in advance) Memory Maker package will be able to download the videos of the animated Magic Shots.

Onboard Rider Photos and Video Comes to Magic Kingdom’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at the Magic Kingdom now offers both video and photos of riders.

This feature is similar to the recent Tower of Terror onboard video. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train feature will create a series of video clips, including point-of-view footage, and scenes of the riders on the drops.

MyMagic+ MagicBands are used to automatically associate the photos and videos to the rider’s My Disney Experience account, making the whole process a seamless experience.

The service is currently available to guests who have purchased the Memory Maker package, and are wearing a MagicBand at the time of riding. The video is available online only at the My Disney Experience website, and cannot be viewed in the park. Photos are available online, and at the camera centers at the front of each park.

Tower of Terror Begins New On-Ride Video Souvenir with Memory Maker and MagicBands

Hollywood Tower Hotel

Guests that have a MagicBand linked to the Memory Maker photo package can now get a souvenir onboard video at the Tower of Terror.

The Tower of Terror attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the first attraction at Walt Disney World to offer on-ride videos as part of the new MyMagic+ system. More attractions are expected to follow, with the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Haunted Mansion strongly rumored to get the on-board photo and video experience.

After riding, those guests with a MagicBand and a linked Memory Maker photo package should expect to see their videos online at My Disney Experience within 24 hours of riding. The video is captured, edited, and uploaded to the guest’s My Disney Experience account automatically – all driven from the MagicBand and RFID readers in the attraction.

The on-ride video will not be available to any guests not wearing a MagicBand with a linked Memory Maker account.
