Guests at Disney Jollywood Nights can capture their holiday looks with a few glamorous photo ops. Disney PhotoPass digital photos and videos from the event are included with your ticket, so you don’t have to make a separate purchase to access your photos.
Special photo experiences are marked on the Disney Jollywood Nights map with a shiny camera symbol.
Disney Jollywood Nights Sign
During the event, a large neon Disney Jollywood Nights sign featuring Ollie the gingerbread man (an original character for the event) is at the front of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
A Disney PhotoPass photographer is on hand to grab your picture.
Camera Array Magic Shot
The Studio Store in Animation Courtyard has been transformed into a photography studio featuring a camera array Magic Shot, plus holiday set dressing.
The Magic Shot puts guests in front of the original Disney Jollywood Nights concept art featuring The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Sunset Boulevard. There are also stacks of presents to the sides and a present prop is available for the photo op. An array of cameras will capture several photos in quick succession, creating a boomerang video. You can do an action like opening the present or dancing.
Also in the room, if you want to take photos yourself, is a Christmas tree with a Jollywood Nights train moving around it and a “Lights! Amera! Action!” movie poster.
Robotic Arm Magic Shot
The robotic arm Magic Shot is in the Disney Junior Dance Party theater. There are two options with this Magic Shot: Slow-Glo or Celebrate.
The Slow-Glo Magic Shot lasts about five seconds, while Celebrate lasts about 30 seconds. For both, the robotic arm moves quickly, capturing you from different angles to create a slow-motion video. The backdrop is half candy cane stripes and half solid red with the Disney Jollywood Nights logo across it, with a red carpet floor.
Other PhotoPass Opportunities
Other PhotoPass photographers can take more standard Magic Shots, which place special images into your photos. Outside Theater of the Stars on Sunset Boulevard, where “Disney Holidays in Hollywood” is performed, a Magic Shot is available with Miss Piggy and Kermit in a stack of presents.
On Hollywood Boulevard, PhotoPass photographers have another present prop, which glows gold from the inside.
PhotoPass photographers are also stationed at other key locations, like in front of the Echo Lake Christmas Tree and at the Tip Top Club Twilight Soirée.
