The most well-known place for photos throughout Walt Disney World would be the icons at each of the four main parks.  When you are visiting, you will want to make sure to grab a picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle, Tree of Life, Spaceship Earth and the Chinese Theatre.  Each of these locations are special to their specific parks.

9. Unique Cinderella’s Castle Spots

In Magic Kingdom, make sure to take time to grab some photos around the castle.  Most guests stop for the iconic picture on Main Street which we mentioned earlier, but make sure to get some other photos of the castle.  A favorite is the view from Sleepy Hollow.  This gets the side view of the castle as well as some of the water.  The Rose Garden is another excellent spot to get some photos of the castle.

10. Train Station

Before entering or leaving Magic Kingdom, make sure you get a photo with the train station in the background.  You can do this from Main Street or right inside the gates of Magic Kingdom.  As trains were a huge part of Walt Disney’s life, you will want to capture this icon as well.

Bonus Ideas:  Another great idea for photo options are the rides signs or signs to the lands. Each land in Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom have signs announcing you are entering. These are fun places to stop and get a photo taken. Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios has a fantastic sign as you enter which you won’t want to miss. Rides also have signs outside the entrances which make great places for photo opportunities. From Peter Pan’s Flight to Slinky Dog Dash, these unique signs are fun photo options.

Walt Disney World is full of photo opportunities from the icons in each park to the rides and scenery, you will want to make sure you stop and capture those magical moments throughout your vacation.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that ‚ÄúIf You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.‚ÄĚ I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
