A new photo op has arrived at Walt Disney World, and on top of the breathtaking backdrop of Cinderella Castle, this one promises to remove other Guests from the background digitally.
The Walt Disney World Resort is home to some of the most photographed sites in the world, with millions of visitors posing for the perfect picture in front of the Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle each year. Whether you use your own phone to take a quick selfie or stand in with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, chances are if you are reading this article you have no shortage of castle photos yourself.

Disney PhotoPass photographers can be found all over Disney Parks, water parks, and occasionally at Disney Resorts and Disney Springs as well. Many Guests love stopping for photos with Disney’s photographers because it provides an easy way to get the whole family in the picture. And, if you happen to purchase Memory Maker (or have the PhotoPass add-on for your Annual Pass), you’ll be able to download all of the photos taken during your trip on the My Disney Experience app.
Some of the best experiences Guests have with Disney PhotoPass Cast Members come in the form of Magic Shots. Typically these shots “magically” add Disney characters, animations, and other effects to the finished photos when Guests view them in the My Disney Experience app. The latest Magic Shot takes Disney’s editing magic to the next level by removing Guests in the background from your castle pictures.

The Disney Parks Blog shared a first look at the new Magic Shot (pictured above), which both takes Guests out of the background of your shot and transforms the image into a watercolor painting to create a memorable souvenir from your next Disney vacation.
You can find the photographer for this Magic Shot location across from the Partners Statue (Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse) located in the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. Watercolor Magic Shot photos are available for a limited time in the Magic Kingdom from 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
