Do you ever spend countless hours scrolling through Instagram and wondering how everyone knows all of the best spots to take pictures at in Walt Disney World? Lucky for you, I'm here to share five of my personal favorite spots to take Instagram photos at!
1. Walls of Disney
For reasons still unbeknownst to me, the Walls of Disney are among some of the top places that Disneygrammers love to hold their photo ops. Regardless of how or why these walls have become so popular on Instagram, it's hard to argue with the fact that they do in fact make for some really cute photos. The Neon Mickey Wall located at the Contemporary Resort is my favorite one by far, but the Fichwa Wall in Animal Kingdom, the Purple Wall in Magic Kingdom, and the Bubblegum Wall in Epcot are a few honorable mentions as well. Chances are, if you visit a Disney Wall you'll run into a handful of like minded people all wanting their pictures taken just like you do, so you'll practically always have another Instagrammer there to take your picture!
No matter where in the world you may go, people taking pictures of their food seems to be a universal trend and Disney certain is no exception. Given the sheer amount of foods that are unique to the Disney Parks, it's no wonder why people feel the need to seize the opportunity for pictures. Some of my favorite, and perhaps unsung, locations to take food pictures are located at Disney Springs. The Springs is home to some of the best restaurants at Walt Disney World and taking pictures at them allows you to savor the memories of eating there in addition to savoring every bite of your meal. The Dining Room at Wolfgang Puck is such a hidden gem and more people should know about it. I had some of the best sashimi that I've ever eaten and also snapped a really photo of it. Also, located in Disney Springs is Erin McKenna's Bakery which has recently become a new favorite of mine. Given the fact that I have Celiac Disease and am lactose intolerant, Erin McKenna's is the perfect dessert option. The bakery itself also provides the perfect setting for Insta-worthy shots of their delicious treats! Of course, there are as many opportunities for great photos as there are food & beverage locations and taking the obligatory Dole Whip Picture at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom always makes for a great picture!
3. Grounds of Disney
The Walt Disney World Resorts are among some of my absolute favorite locations for photos. To be specific, Disney's Boardwalk, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Art of Animation, Yacht & Beach Club, and Polynesian resorts are offer prime settings for your pictures. The Boardwalk is home to so many hidden treasures such as Margarita Joe's (I'm a little biased towards anything with my name in it), Animal Kingdom Lodge offers a similar setting as Animal Kingdom, Art of Animation is perfect for seeing some of your favorite characters at 10x their original scale, the Yacht & Beach Club transports you to Cape May, New Jersey, and the Polynesian provides the perfect tropical oasis.
