New Disney PhotoPass Opportunities This Summer

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have two new Disney PhotoPass opportunities this summer. The first is a video captured by the photographer across from the “Feathered Friends in Flight!” bird show.

The video begins with a close-up of the guests in the shot before zooming out to reveal a parrot perched atop a Disney’s Animal Kingdom sign. The Tree of Life takes up the middle of the video, as the guests shrink beneath it. The video then zooms back in on the guests.
