The Magic in Pixels is proud to announce that Pixelmania 2012 is scheduled for December 6-9 in the Walt Disney World Resort. Coming off the biggest and best-attended Pixelmania event to date, this TMIP-signature event is sure to be fun for Disney Photography Buffs of all skills and experience levels. We have had so much fun and have grown so much during Pixelmania 2009, 2010, and 2011 and there is still more room to pack in even more fun and memories. There is a lot more information coming very soon, but for now, please be sure to mark your calendar and plan on being at Walt Disney World during this fun and informative event and join your fellow Disney shutterbugs in the event. Accommodations are once again expected to be handled by Allison Jones of DESTINATIONS IN FLORIDA.COM and her very capable team, so be sure to stay tuned for some great rates and deals!
Notice the date change! For 2012, Pixelmania returns to the holiday spirit and moves back to the traditional early December time slot to allow all attendees the opportunity to enjoy the Walt Disney World Resort in all of its holiday beauty and majesty. There will be specific opportunities to see Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, as well as the incredible Christmas Village display in the lobby of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, with so much more to come.
Pixelmania is a gathering of Disney photography, friends, and fun and is designed to be a low-stress, open-ended get-together 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. Events range from in-park walk-throughs and attraction hopping, to enjoying the decorations and festivities of the world-class resorts. Last year’s event even featured a few surprises, and unfortunately a bit of rain as well.
