    The Magic in Pixels is proud to announce that Pixelmania 2017 is scheduled for Wednesday December 6th to Sunday December 10th in the Walt Disney World Resort. Pixelmania is a gathering of Disney photography, friends, and fun and is designed to be a low-stress, open-ended event where we can all learn and share together. The schedule is flexible, with plenty of down time so you can enjoy your favorite dining and attractions, while still having fun in the company of your fellow photogs and online friends.

    The Planning Board is working hard on a great mix of new and old favorite events with a possible surprise or two mixed in. For now, please be sure to mark your calendar and plan on being at Walt Disney World during this fun and informative event.

    If you're planning to attend, please make sure to let us know in the Signup Thread so we can keep an accurate head count for the event.

  7. Here is link to the PARK HOURS calendar that Disney provides to Travel Agents. Keep in mind that this calendar WILL MOST LIKELY CHANGE so check back when we get closer to December trip for updates. I am hoping that this information will help attendees in planning their trip. The timeline for the Pixelmania meets will be released as we get closer to the event.

    Those all sound good to me - I'm in for all! Looking forward to the signup threads, just hoping I don't miss them or not notice them in time.
    The only thing I wish I could have managed was to add one more day, as I'll have to miss out on Sunday's activities.

    Hi everyone. I'm new here but I'm very interested in this. I'm not sure yet if I can make it but I'm going to try. Is there a deadline. I'm a bit of an amateur but would love to get in some more practice and be around people who love photography also.

    Welcome! We'd love for you to attend if you can. There is no deadline to sign up for the event, we only ask folks so we have an idea of how many people to expect.

    We do ask for everyone to sign up for dining by 11/28 just so we can release unused ADR's back into the system. However if there are seats available after that date on the partially used ADR's we'll still fill the remaining seats.

    Hi, do you know when the Yeha Bob meetup will be? I don't think I can make it for dinner but I'm interested in that

    All of the meet times will be listed on the full schedule when it is released later this month. The short version listed above was just to give everyone the general outline.

    Bump: Schedule and Unofficial Pre & Post Meets added.

    As a reminder 11/28 is the last day to sign up for dining so we can release the excess seats back into the system, so please sign up if you want to eat with the group and haven't already done so. Also, please sign up for the DVC EPCOT Moonlight Magic event if you wish to attend with the group.

    So the last day, Sunday the 10th has been changed to stay at the Studios all day and not leave at 4pm for Animal Kingdom. Is that correct?
