Whether you are a professional or an amateur photographer, you will not want to miss out on these once in a lifetime photo opportunities. Don’t forget, if you have Disney’s Memory Maker, several of these photos can be taken by a Professional Photo Pass Photographer and added directly to your Magic Band! I still love looking at my first pictures at Disney from over 30 years ago! Here are my top picks for the 7 BEST Disney photos:
Cinderella’s Castle – This is probably the most sought after picture in the Magic Kingdom. I mean who doesn’t grow up dreaming of living in the Castle?
Spaceship Earth at Epcot – I highly recommend getting this picture at night time. The “sphere” is illuminated and is breathtaking.
Pictures with the Characters – Who can resist running up to your favorite character at Disney? I cannot leave the Magic Kingdom without waiting the 2+ hours for my daughters to get their pictures taken with the Princesses at Fairy Tale Hall. (I should definitely use a FastPass+ for that next time!) If you don’t want to waste precious minutes in the Parks, try a Character Meal. My favorite is Chef Mickey’s. Mickey and the gang make their way to each and every table for pictures and hugs!
Iconic Walt & Mickey Statue – In between Main Street, USA and Cinderella’s Castle in Disney’s Magic Kingdom, is the classic Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Statue. For Mickey Mouse lovers, this is a bucket list picture. “It all started with a mouse” – Walt Disney.
Ride Photos – One of the most important things to plan when entering a ride or attraction, is planning your “pose” for the automatic picture taken at some point during the ride. Sharing a kiss, making a silly face or even a marriage proposal are all acceptable “poses”! When the ride is finished, you can take a picture of the picture or purchase it as a keepsake! If you have Disney’s Memory Maker, just scan your Magic Band and you can head over to your next activity.
Disney Fireworks – Whether you are standing on Main Street, USA watching the fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle, sitting on a bench near the World Showcase Lagoon watching Epcot’s Illuminations, or packed in the theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios watching Fantasmic!, you will never want to take your eye off the sky! Just try to do it for one second while you take a quick picture!
Exhausted kid (or adult) with the famous Mickey Ears on – This is, in my opinion, the most important and most cherished picture of the vacation! If you can snap this picture of a child (or an exhausted adult), it means someone really enjoyed Disney!
So, what are your favorite Disney Pictures?
