Announcing Photo Magic 2013 at Walt Disney World
We are very excited to announce a big event we have been working on for later this year. We have hinted about it on Facebook and Twitter, but today can officially announce that Photo Magic 2013 at Walt Disney World will be taking place from Sunday October 20th to Thursday October 24th.
What is Photo Magic?
It is a week long event where the Disney photography community can get together and photograph the parks, hang out and participate in some great events. Thank to Big Red Shorts for sponsoring Photo Magic 2013 and coming up with some very exciting events that we think everybody will enjoy.
Our goal is to make sure you can enjoy your time at the parks while still being able to participate in whichever events you want. We will be scheduling things for throughout the day which should give people the flexibility to go off on their own when they want and meet back up with us at a later time. While you are free to attend every event we schedule, we don’t want anybody to think it is required.
Photo Magic is for all Disney photography fans, it does not matter if you use a DSLR or Point and Shoot camera, everybody is welcome!
How much does it cost?
There will not be any cost to attend Photo Magic 2013 besides having a ticket to enter the parks. We may announce some events that will require a ticket to be purchased (tours, group meals, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, etc), but the general events are all completely free!
What is the list of events?
The final list of events is still being finalized and we are working to setup some exciting stuff with the help of Disney. For that reason, we are waiting to announce the list until we can confirm everything first. Be sure to keep an eye out on the blog though as we will be announcing the lineup shortly.
The final night is looking to be very exciting with a very fun event planned to end the week.
If you have any ideas, we are still finalizing things and would love to hear them! Let us know in the comments below.
Will there be group rates and discounts?
Yes! Our sponsor Big Red Shorts is working with Disney right now on securing group rates and discounts for attendees. That information will be released shortly and you will then be able to book directly with Big Red Shorts to receive the discounts for Photo Magic 2013.
How do I sign up?
In the coming weeks we will be launching a site for Photo Magic that will allow you to view the full list of events, signup for special events and much more. You don’t need to purchase anything in order to join us for the general events, just show up! We would love to find out who is planning on joining us though, so leave a comment below if you are.
We want to hear from you!
Do you plan on joining us at Photo Magic 2013 at Walt Disney World? We are also thinking of scheduling a day of events on Saturday October 19th for folks who will be there over the weekend. One idea we have thrown around was a group tour of one of the parks, is that something you would be interested in?
Let us know in the comments!
We still have more to announce (the actual event list, discounts), but we wanted to get the dates announce immediately so people could start making plans. We are very excited to announce the full lineup of Photo Magic 2013 in the coming weeks and think you will really enjoy what we have planned. It is looking to be a great week of photography and we hope you can join us!
