ICYMI: Hidden Mickey Photo Ops at Walt Disney World

When spending time in the Disney Parks with your friends or family, making memories is at the top of the agenda, and Disney has the perfect solution for capturing those moments. It’s called PhotoPass, and aside from making sure everyone can be in the picture, there are some very cool special effects that are available in some photo ops.
