Patriotic PhotoPass Opportunities

Magic Kingdom
Disney Springs
Lastly, guests visiting any of the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks on July 4th will be able to find select PhotoPass photographers possessing the perfect prop for patriotic picture purposes.


***Please note these days are some of the busiest of the year. If you are visiting a theme park during this holiday, you should arrive early and expect to stay for the remainder of the day. 

Historically, the parks do reach capacity and guests will no longer be able to enter once this occurs.  Having a dining reservation will not get you into the park once it is closed.

If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you are guaranteed entry to a theme park, but not necessarily the one of your choosing. Again, get to the park early and plan on making a full day of it.
