Whether you want a wall with its own hashtag to post on Instagram or a beautiful scenic backdrop, We have the best Walt Disney World picture spots covered. Here are the best photo locations in all four Walt Disney World theme parks.
You could theoretically stand in the center of the Plaza by the Partners statue and take a photo in any direction. However, there are some locations in the Magic Kingdom that have been deemed too perfect not to designate for photos. There are 4 official Picture Spots in the Magic Kingdom. Almost all of them are on the West Side of the Park. The only exception is the Sword in the Stone in the castle courtyard. In Frontierland Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain are so picturesque you can’t walk away without a photo. In Adventureland, you will find an arrangement of Tikis between The Jungle Cruise and Aloha Isle, which is way too fun to pose with.
The Magic Kingdom is famous for its Purple Wall at the entrance to Tomorrowland. It’s still the most popular selfie wall in the park.
Epcot has 8 official Picture Spots and 11 World Showcase Pavilions. So, automatically three didn’t make the cut. One of the 8 picture spots in Epcot is actually at the Entrance where you can see Spaceship Earth towering behind you. So, which four nations do not get official picture locations? Mexico, Norway, Italy, and the United States of America. Although these are all fantastic pavilions, the scenic beauty of designated areas within China, Germany, Japan, Morocco, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada translate particularly well in photographs.
Spaceship Earth used to have the pretty pink bubblegum wall on the backside entrance but as of a few weeks ago, that is no longer since park construction has begun. The Toothpaste Wall in The Seas with Nemo and Friends and the mosiac wall outside of The Land is equally Instagram worthy. Another popular location is in Morocco.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios has only two official Picture Spots, but here I would argue that there are many more. Especially considering the props they have lying around to take pictures on. The Chinese theater, Millenium Falcon and the Entrance to Sunset Boulevard with the Hollywood Tower Hotel in the distance are just a few personal favorites.
However, to keep it official, The best spots to take a picture in this park are the entrance to Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster with it’s upside down convertible screeching out of a musical staff flying off a giant guitar. Yes. With a description like that, I suppose there ought to be a designated photo location. The secondary Picture Spot is of the Studio Arch at the park entrance, which is okay, but not nearly as cool as getting a picture of yourself on a speeder bike, or under a gigantic AT-AT.
Toy Story Land is the most Instagrammable with three popular choices for the best selfie pics. The First is the Block Wall, which is comprised of a series of stacked blocks of different colors. Secondly, the Popsicle Stick Wall near the exit from Toy Story Mania offers a wooden background partially stained by popsicles. Lastly, there is a CheckerBoard Wall in the same area. This is a red and black background that makes a good option for an Instagram pic, especially if you are donning the right color scheme.
Now the most confusing of all is Animal Kingdom. There is only one official picture spot in this park and it’s at the main entrance. This park is so beautiful, though. You could plant a picture spot sign virtually anywhere in the park where you can see the peak of the Forbidden Mountain where Expedition Everest is located. What about the Mo’Ara Valley in Pandora. Floating Mountains! There are amazing pictures to take wherever you go in Animal Kingdom, from the Tree of Life on Discovery Island to the Africa Marketplace, and the Entrance to the Dinosaur attraction. Many of these places are staked out by Photopass, so Disney knows they are excellent for pictures. The good news is you can enlist Photopass photographers to take a picture of you using your camera for free.
Instagram walls in Animal Kingdom are popular and very different from the other parks. There are more muddled compositions and textural components here. It’s almost as if the stars of these Instagram photos are the walls themselves. The Moss Wall is in Pandora near Satu’li Canteen. It’s a composition of muted colors that makes for an interesting backdrop. Harambe Marketplace is the location for the most popular Instagram wall, the “You Are Most Beautiful” Wall.
