If you follow me at all you know I have a lot of interests and passions, including Instagram and Walt Disney World. Instagram is totally my jam, it is by far my most favorite spot on these wide world webs to hang out. And in real life, Walt Disney World is definitely my happiest place on Earth. Put the two together and you have a photo loving dream.
It’s no secret that Disney has so many spots to create and capture moments. They even started the whole “wall craze” and now they just keep creating places for us to take fun photos and share with the world. So in today’s post I’m sharing my top, most Instagrammable spots in Walt Disney World.
The Purple Wall at Magic Kingdom
I think everyone has taken a photo at the Purple Wall (photo above). It’s geometric pattern in lavender and purple are an Instagram dream. It is so famous now that it has a whole collection of merch produced by Disney. If you are one of the 5 people in the world unfamiliar with this wall, it is on the right as you cross into Tomorrow Land from the central hub.
The Incredibles Wall at Hollywood Studios
The new Incredibles Wall at Hollywood Studios is actually three in one. I love the spot featured in the photo above because of its bright colors (pink, but of course). Plus to me it really conveys power! This new wall is in the old qeue area for Toy Story Mania. There are other Incredibles themed spots in this area but this wall takes center stage.
The France Pavilion at Epcot
Pretty much any of the pavilions at Epcot are full of photo ops, but my favorite spot is the France pavilion. Mais oui! I like to look for the little areas or corners that make it seem like you are really strolling down a Parisian boulevard. I’ve always loved this art poster column at the front of the pavilion outside of Chefs de France.
The Muppets Wall at Hollywood Studios
Well, we all know I adore everything pink so is it any wonder how much I love the Muppets wall at Hollywood Studios with all of its crazy paint splatters. The pink section is marked with “Animal was here”. I love this area not just because of the pink but The Muppets were my favorite show growing up and Animal was my mother’s favorite.
Another great thing about this area is that it is at the back of the Muppet area, behind a building and not many people go back there. So it’s not often stumbled upon and a very quiet spot to sit. Sadly, I’ve heard rumors that all of The Muppet stuff will be leaving us shortly.
The Tiger Area at Maraja Jungle Trek at Animal Kingdom
The Maraja Jungle Trek is another little known spot but at Animal Kingdom. I always have to stroll through here when we visit the park and I swear we are usually the only people back there. The tiger area seen above is my favorite spot. I love the brick, the bamboo and the Tibetan prayer flags blowing in the breeze. It’s a peaceful spot and makes for a great photo.
The Main Street Confectionary Wall at Magic Kingdom
I’ve seen this wall at Magic Kingdom be called many different things including the Main Street Confectionary Wall and the Cotton Candy Wall. I usually call it the Cotton Candy Wall because the whole place smells like the cotton candy the castmembers are making. Plus…it is pink!
This is inside the Confectionary right on the tip of Main Street at Magic Kingdom. The whole store is decorated in this fun pastel pink striped wall paper so any spot is a good spot. I usually like the spot near the door, because if you shoot the photo just right you can catch some fun background action outside of the store as well.
The Morocco Wall at Epcot
As I mentioned earlier, there are so many great spots in the World Showcase at Epcot for photos. Another one of my favorites is this beautifully tiled area with a fountain inside Morocco. I don’t feel like Morocco gets a lot of love either. This spot is usually pretty quiet. You can sit, you can stand, you can zoom in or fill up the picture with the whole spot. Anyway you take it, it makes for a beautiful picture.
Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs
I have to admit that I have not found many photo ops at Disney Springs. I just don’t see much there that catches my fancy. Not to mention that it is always so packed that getting good shots is hard to come by.
I love this wall at Amorette’s Patisserie though. It’s like being outside of your own real life gingerbread house. I like to sit on the side of the building outside between Amorette’s and World of Disney. It is more out of the way, so you can sit in peace, in the shade and capture a great shot like this one. Extra points if you include a beautiful dessert!
The Land Pavilion at Epcot
Here is another beautifully done tile wall at Epcot. This one is outside of The Land Pavilion. It is very abstract and has so many colors. Just search the wall for a great spot and snap away. This wall leads into the pavilion so traffic can be tough here, but it is well worth it.
The Bubblegum Wall at Epcot
I’m sorry but if you don’t know about the Bubblegum Wall at Epcot, we can no longer be friends. I know it is pretty overplayed these days, but it is still my favorite wall. My two colors are bubblegum pink and baby blue and this wall as both. So I’m pretty much in pastel heaven here.
This wall is outside the exit to Spaceship Earth. It is so popular now that Disney has crated merchandise and even snacks resembling this famous wall. Also, a little known wall lives right here too, the Blueberry Wall, It is the wall just outside of the Bubblegum Wall. Very similar look but done in different shades of blue. Two for one! Win, win!
Spaceship Earth at Epcot
I mean obvi, we have to add Spaceship Earth. There are so many ways to get a great photo of this iconic ride. You can wait till night when it is lit up in shades of reds and purples. You can wait to my favorite time at the parks, the Flower and Garden Festival and capture it like in the photo above surrounded by flowers. So many choices!
Cinderella’s Castle at Magic Kingdom
Cinderella’s Castle at Magic Kingdom is definitely one of the most Instagrammed spots at Walt Disney World. Most people take the traditional, standing in front of the castle, on Main Street photo. However, I like to find unique and different angles of the castle to shoot.
This one was a truly magical moment. I shot this from the bridge leading into the area where Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain are. The castle was lit in pinks and purples and the Full Moon hung low and just behind the castle. It was even more breath taking in real life and drew quite a crowd. Anyway you shoot, Cinderella’s Castle captures the true spirit of Disney.
