Disneyland Paris Opens ‘Spirit Photography’ in Front of Phantom Manor

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With Phantom Manor in refurbishment, the lower parts of Frontierland at Disneyland Paris are relatively empty. To compensate for this lack, they now added a photo-opportunity in front of Phantom Manor, called ‘Spirit Photography’. We reported this earlier, but there are more details now it is open!

Guests can take place in a self-serving kiosk, where they can take a photo with a ghost appearing on it after printing. This Magic Shot technique is used a lot in Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort, but this is the first opportunity at Disneyland Paris.

The background of the kiosk is as follows:

Ghosts have been seen escaping from the Ravenswood Manor. James Collins Esq. the Thunder Mesa photographer, whose studio is located above Bonanza Outfitters, has set up a mobile studio to try to capture images of these phenomena for the weekly journal “The Mysterious Chronicle” with his innovative “Spectral Camera”. While he’s away, the playful ghosts keep taking their own photos with his camera equipment and printing copies of the newspaper!

After taking the photo, you can get your own copy of “The Mysterious Chronicle” that is printed immediately. This copy costs €12 (around $14) or €6 for guests with a PhotoPass+, that will also receive a digital version of the photo.

We would like to thank ED92 for trying the Spirit Photography photo opportunity:

The Spirit Photography kiosk remains in front of Phantom Manor until it reopens. This is expected to happen this October.
