glowing props

At last we see the light…at Walt Disney World, that is! Disney just announced that Walt Disney World has released even more glowing props to use in your Disney PhotoPass pictures while on vacation this winter, and we can’t wait to have a chance to try them. On your next Walt Disney World vacation, you and your family can take pictures with the fan-favorite Rapunzel’s lantern and many more other illuminated PhotoPass props.

These gorgeous glowing PhotoPass props are available all around the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort. While guests look forward to snapping pictures with Rapunzel’s lantern inspired by “Tangled,” there are also many new props that are now available at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Read on to find out where you can find each of the amazing glow props at the Disney Parks after the sun sets.

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom offers the most glow props out of all of the Walt Disney World theme parks. This may be because “magic” is in this park’s name, but no matter the reason, we think you should definitely spend some time in this park at night this winter so you can take advantage of these beautiful PhotoPass props. At Magic Kingdom, you can take a picture with the highly coveted “Tangled” lantern, something so many Disney fans wish they could experience in real life. If you attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you can also hold Tinker Bell in her lantern. This prop definitely reminds us of that scene in “Peter Pan” when Hook traps Tinker Bell, but we still think it’s adorable and magical. And over by Mad Tea Party, you can hold one of the beautiful lanterns that illuminate the attraction. If you’re a fan of magical Fantasyland experiences, these PhotoPass props are not to be missed.


The World Showcase at Epcot is breathtaking at any time of day, but there is a special magic feeling that comes alive every night after the sun goes down and the pavilions are illuminated. Now, you can take PhotoPass pictures with two amazing props in different pavilions in the World Showcase. In the China Pavilion, you can take a photo with a beautiful lotus flower lantern (which reminds us of the floats during Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!). And in the Morocco Pavilion, you can take a photo with an ornately detailed, Moroccan-inspired lantern. Both props are equally beautiful and artistically designed.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers a glowing PhotoPass prop near Rivers of Light, and it is just as beautiful as the Epcot lanterns. We love the colors and design of this lantern, and we think Expedition Everest makes the perfect backdrop for this nighttime adventure scene.

Currently, there aren’t any glowing PhotoPass props available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but we hope that changes soon. How cute would it be to snap a picture with a glowing Little Green Alien?

After taking your photo with Disney PhotoPass at one of the locations mentioned above, you can purchase the digital downloads of your photos for $16.95 each, or you can purchase a Memory Maker for unlimited downloads. There are plenty of pricing options for PhotoPass, so don’t hesitate to ask a Cast Member for more information about what is available for you during your vacation. We don’t want you to miss out on all the beautiful glow props now available at Walt Disney World.

Which of these glow props will you take your picture with on your next Walt Disney World vacation? Let us know in the comments!
