    Is there a way to select a specific character for Magic Shot photo in the photo app?

    Hey there, Rachel!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask me this question. They say that “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” and this couldn’t be any closer to the truth when it comes to being able to select a specific character to take a Disney PhotoPass Service Magic Shot with. There are many cool features in the My Disney Experience App, but a big part of that magic happens before the photo is even taken. 

    While at the Most Magical Place on Earth, you’ll see PhotoPass photographers in green shirts (or other signifying attire) awaiting your family to take photos in front of icons like Cinderella Castle and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Before you take your photo, if they don’t already have one ready to go, ask the photographer to take a Magic Shot of your crew. While you may not be able to request specific characters, I do recommend that you stay up-to-date with the current locations of where special Magic Shots are usually taken. The Disney PhotoPass Service has an official Facebook page and Instagram page where you can check out some of the offerings you can look forward to during your vacation. 

    Another suggestion to get a truly once-in-a-lifetime photo with your favorite character at Walt Disney World Resort is to visit them in person! There are various character meet-and-greet opportunities across the Resort. From visiting Princess Tiana at Princess Fairy Tale Hall at Magic Kingdom Park to saying hello to Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus at EPCOT, a PhotoPass photographer or an automated camera will capture your family’s moments. 

    Rachel, like your own Fairy Godmother, please revisit me here at planDisney. I’m all ears! 

    Magic always,
