While we all know there’s magic afoot at the Disneyland Resort, it’s little known that the magic can even appear in your Disney PhotoPass photos. Disney PhotoPass photographers capture picture-perfect memories of the whole family – and sometimes, photographers sprinkle even more pixie dust on your photos. We call these Magic Shots. Let’s dive into our favorite Disney PhotoPass Magic Shots currently available most times most days at the Disneyland Resort.


Location: Disneyland Resort

Don’t float away! This magical photo op features iconic Mickey Mouse Balloons and is captured at many locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. It’s available year-round and is often available with limited-time theming for various celebrations. Right now, Guests can enjoy balloons themed to the Disney100 celebration! Be sure to ask a photographer if they are offering this Magic Shot at their location.
