10 Must Get Photos in Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom is a beautiful Park making it perfect for photographs. Most of us take time to take pictures of Cinderella Castle, but what about the other hidden photo spots throughout Magic Kingdom?

You will want to take ten photos during your next trip to Magic Kingdom.

10. Cinderella Castle

We know that most of us take pictures of and with Cinderella Castle, but we will encourage you to get creative with your photos of this Walt Disney World icon. After you have taken the classic picture from Main Street, U.S.A., take pictures of the castle from other areas of the Park.

We love taking pictures from the side as we head into Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, and Liberty Square. One of our favorite spots is on the side of the castle next to Sleepy Hollow. Here we can get the reflection of the castle in the water, which is beautiful. The back of the castle is also gorgeous. Take time to get pictures from Fantasyland to capture the beauty from a new angle.

Also, make sure you take pictures throughout the different times of the day. Get the sunrise and sunset as the colors come to life differently off the castle. We also like to take pictures using the castle as our background while capturing our Mickey ears, runDisney medals, or favorite snack.

Don’t get stuck taking only the traditional picture of Cinderella Castle. Make sure to get different angles to capture the full beauty it has to offer.

9. Partners Statue

Another iconic picture you should get while in Magic Kingdom is the Partners Statue. This features Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse hand in hand. You must take advantage of this historic statue in the middle of Cinderella Castle hub.

Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse welcome Guests into the Park as they oversee the magic and the dreams that come true every day for Guests. Don’t skip out on getting this picture during your trip.

8. Wishing Well

Cinderella’s Wishing Well is located to the castle’s right (when entering from Main Street USA). A path will take you past the castle, the meet and greet area for Merida, and lead you to the wishing well.

This area isn’t typically crowded, making it a great place to capture amazing pictures. Not all Guests know about this hidden area, so take advantage of it for some fantastic images.

7. Hub Grass

This might seem silly, but take time to take pictures of Magic Kingdom from the hub. This wide-open area makes a perfect spot for getting photographs. You can take some of Main Street USA, the castle, or the hub area itself. The beautifully landscaped area makes for a beautiful background in pictures.

6. Balloons on Main Street, U.S.A.

If you are looking for a creative photo, consider taking some with the bundle of balloons on Main Street. Talk to the Cast Member and see if you can snap a picture with the bundle of balloons. Like the movie UP!, this will give you a great color photo with Cinderella Castle in the background.

5. Purple Wall

Taking pictures of different walls throughout Walt Disney World has become a top photo to get during a Disney vacation. The main wall at Magic Kingdom is the purple wall found in Tomorrowland. This wall is a gorgeous shade of purple that makes it fun for photos. As you head into Tomorrowland, it can be found on the right before Monsters Inc Laugh Floor.

There are two options on the wall. One is a solid color, while the other has a galactic look with geometric designs. Choose your style and get those Minnie Ears ready for some fun photos.

Rapunzel Courtyard

4. Tangled Restrooms

It might seem strange that restrooms make our list of top photos to get in Magic Kingdom, but you won’t want to skip this area. When in Fantasyland, if you look up, you will see Rapunzel’s tower. This area is a restroom, but oddly enough, it is well-themed and beautiful.

The lanterns seen in the movie are draped around, and at night when they light up, this area is breathtaking. Trust us when we say you will want photos of this area.

3. Dumbo the Flying Elephant

It wouldn’t be a trip to Walt Disney World without a picture of this iconic ride. Capture that perfect Disney moment as you soar with Dumbo. This attraction is gorgeous at night as it comes to life with water and lights. You can also get a picture out front as there is a Dumbo outside of the attraction as well.

We also like seeing the sights of Magic Kingdom from Dumbo!

2. 50th Anniversary Statues

Right now, we highly recommend taking photos of the 50th Anniversary Statues that can be found throughout Magic Kingdom. These gold statues are part of the 50th-anniversary celebration and are so adorable and fun.

Finding them throughout Magic Kingdom is fun, but they are perfect for photos.

1. Tron Lightcycle Run

You won’t want to miss our final photo: Tron Lightcyle Run in Tomorrowland. This new attraction will open to Guests soon, and it is a must to get a photo. We highly recommend visiting this area at night for some fantastic pictures of the ride with all the lights illuminated.


Not only will the ride be trendy, but snagging pictures of it will also be a must-do in Magic Kingdom.


You will want to get those ten photos when in Magic Kingdom. Get your phone ready to take lots of magical pictures during your trip. Check out other images you won’t miss during your Walt Disney World trip HERE.
