5 Favorite EPCOT International Festival of the Arts Photo Ops

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

During the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, you can celebrate the art of photography with themed photo ops from January 13 through February 20, 2023!

There are quite a few places around EPCOT to capture works of art during the festival with Disney PhotoPass Service, but below are my top 5.

Figment Magic Shots  

Magic Shots
are all about using your imagination, which of course leads us to Figment! This
year, we’re introducing three new Magic Shots inspired by everyone’s favorite
playful dragon. You can find these Magic Shots at the following locations:

  • Figment
    Wings: Most Disney PhotoPass locations in EPCOT
  • Figment
    Chalk Art: At the main entrance to the park and near the entrance to World
    Showcase under the Monorail beam
  • Figment
    Flying: Most Disney PhotoPass locations in EPCOT
Tiny World Magic Shot: Festival of the
Arts Edition

This 360-degree shot near the main
entrance of the park (now available both during the day and after dark!) has
quickly become a fan favorite, so we’re giving it a bright splash of color
during the festival. Even if you’ve taken this photo before, be sure to stop by
for this limited-time edition.

Artful Step-in Frames

All around EPCOT, you can literally step into works of art. The more you have fun with it, the better your photos will be! I was going to include a photo in this blog post of me smiling just right in Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, but I couldn’t take the picture without laughing. Maybe next time! Disney PhotoPass photographers will be at select locations to help you strike a perfect pose.  

Paintbrush Prop + Magic Shot

No, these Magic Shots aren’t a figment of
your imagination! After 6 p.m. at the main entrance of the park, a photographer
can offer you a special prop that creates a beautiful light painting Magic Shot
when the photo appears in your gallery. Art made easy!

Pixel Stick

When the sun goes down, the famous pixel stick comes out! In
my opinion, this is the photo op where our photographers’ creativity really
shines. Bask in the glow of the light while a photographer creates a painting
around you. Every photo taken through this method is a completely unique work
of art. This photo op usually draws an audience, because even if you aren’t
capturing a photo, it sure is fun – and kind of hilarious – to watch the
process. It’s available near Creations Shop on the pathway to World Showcase.
When you see a giant light-up stick being masterfully twirled around, you’ll
know you’re in the right place.

To easel-y (sorry, couldn’t help myself) download and share these and all of the other Disney PhotoPass photos and videos from your entire visit, you’ll want a Memory Maker or Memory Maker One Day entitlement. Learn more by clicking here
