Walt Disney World is full of magical experiences. If you’re like most people, you’ll want to capture some of the those magical memories. Here is a list of positively magical snapshots you won’t want to miss on your Disney vacation. You’ll love to reminisce while looking at them once you get back home!
11. The Partners Statue
This famous statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse holding hands is located in the hub just in front of Cinderella Castle. Many families like to pose with Walt and Mickey.
10. Eating a Disney Snack
Disney offers some truly spectacular food options, many of which happen to be “Mickey” shaped. Snap a shot of your kids eating one of these mouse-shaped snacks, like a pretzel or ice cream bar!
9. Mickey Mouse
What trip to Disney would be complete without a photo of your family with “The Mouse” himself? There are many opportunities for this, including character meals where Mickey appears as well as any of the Mickey Mouse character meet and greets at the theme parks.
8. Lego Creations at Disney Springs
There is an enormous Lego Store located in Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney). Out in the front of the store there are life-sizes statues created from millions of Lego bricks. There is a Lego Family and a Dragon in the lagoon. They are truly amazing to see and make for a great photo opportunity!
7. Riding the Teacups
This is one of my absolute favorite photos to take. Even a basic camera or phone will take a great shot because if you’re in the teacup with the person you’re photographing, your subject will be still but the background will be blurred.
6. Disney Hotel Lobby
The lobby of each official Disney Resort Hotel is spectacular in its own right. Taking a photo in front of something “iconic” in each lobby (like the massive window in the back of Jambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge) is a great way to remember the beauty of each resort.
5. Wearing 3-D Glasses
I have a photo of my daughter from every single Disney visit inside Muppets 3-D wearing her glasses. Another great venue for this is It’s Tough to be a Bug in Animal Kingdom These are great, silly shots that will remind you of the attractions you experienced during your visit.
4. Park Entrance Locations
There are locations at the entrance of each theme park that will allow you get a good shot in front of park signage. I especially love to get shots of kids pointing at the signs on your first day at each park. They always looks so excited!
3. On the Monorail
There are few things more “Disney” than the Monorail. You can take a photo of your group as the monorail pulls up a the station, or inside during your ride. Either way, you’ll have a truly “iconic” photo!
Disney puts on some spectacular displays of pyrotechnics. It may be difficult to get a shot of people and fireworks in the same photo, but a picture of fireworks over Cinderella Castle will certainly bring back magical memories.
1. Park Icons
No visit to Disney would be complete without a photo in front of the park icons – Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom, Spaceship Earth in Epcot, and Tree of Life in Animal Kingdom. Be sure to get to the parks bright and early so you can get a few great photos in front of these icons without thousands of other people in your shot!
