New Star Wars Magic Shots and Photo Ops Debuting May the 4th

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 Blog Mickey for the original post...

Disney World has announced new Disney PhotoPass Magic Shots and photo ops debuting for May the 4th in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Here’s the announcement:

Saber the moment: It’s almost May the 4th!

And just in time, Disney PhotoPass Service is launching numerous photo opportunities tomorrow in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! We know some of you are off world and can’t travel at lightspeed to Batuu by tomorrow, so these experiences will continue to be available after the celebration ends. Check them out below. 

New Holopuck Magic Shots

Located deep in the Outer Rim near Wild Space, the remote planet of Batuu has become a thriving destination for scoundrels and smugglers, luring bounty hunters from across the galaxy. If you’ve come to track down your next bounty, select Image Scanners (known on our planet as Disney PhotoPass photographers) can offer you a holopuck that will reveal the details of your next target.

BB-8 Magic Shot

This is the droid you’re looking for. Given the whispers about sightings of individuals associated with the Resistance around Black Spire Outpost, it’s no surprise that you can spot this loveable and loyal astromech in your image.  

Armorer’s Forge Lens 

This is the Way to design your Mandalorian beskar armor. With this new Disney PhotoPass Lens, you can opt for a bright and bold color palette like Sabine Wren’s armor, or keep your design more discreet – the choice is yours. May 4 through May 11, you can enjoy complimentary access to this Lens in the My Disney Experience app. Starting May 12, it’ll be available exclusively to Annual Passholders or those who purchase Disney Genie+ service.*


Created more than a thousand years ago by Tarre Vizsla (the first Mandalorian to become a Jedi Knight), the Darksaber is an ancient weapon with a long and legendary history. It has been wielded by many beings over the years, and now it’s your turn. Starting tomorrow, this blade can be found across from Oga’s Cantina after dark. Just remember the wise words Kanan Jarrus once shared about this lightsaber: “That sword is old, heavy, but powerful. Respect its strength.” 

BD-1 Magic Shot 

Never underestimate droids, especially those that beep in the face of danger. Be sure to capture a scan with this droid companion before setting out on your next adventure. 

While on planet, you never know what other adventures you might document with the help of Disney PhotoPass Service. A great way to capture a variety of content is to ask each Image Scanner you encounter what special scans they can offer you. 

May the 4th be with you, always.
