Welcome to those of you joining me from Growing Up Disney and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.
Hello everyone, and thanks for joining us this month on the Magical Blogorail Red line! This month we are talking about our best (or favorite) Disney Photo Spots! There are so many locations to take incredible photos at that this one is going to be a tough one to narrow down! So, as a result, I’m going to share with you several of my favorite spots, and highlight them with pictures!
For my first photo spot, I think a trip on a boat makes for some incredible photography. Perhaps my shot here will convince you of that? For this boat ride, we had a date with ‘Ohana for breakfast to keep, but even if you don’t, there is no reason why you can’t hop the water taxi to the Polynesian yourself for a little Resort Hopping!
Another place I like to take a picture is right by a parade route. Who doesn’t love a good parade? The beauty of parades is that there can be hundreds of incredible photo locations — for me, though, I seem to get my best pictures in Town Square. Perhaps you like these?
As you know, though, boats and parades aren’t the only things to photograph at Walt Disney World. Some of the best shots are simply candid shots, when those being photographed don’t realize that it is happening. Such was the time when we came upon Princess Jasmine in Morocco of Epcot’s World Showcase. Sophie had literally five to ten minutes of Princess Jasmine time because she and the Genie had just come out, and no one else was there. It was truly a magical Disney memory, and the picture just sums it up best.
One great photo spot, that unfortunately isn’t around any more, is the love seat in Minnie’s Country House, in what used to be known as Mickey’s Toontown Fair. While that land is no more, the memory of Sophie with her Meemaw remains, and I’m sharing it with you now.
Have you ever had your picture taken at a block party? I’m sure many of you have had that happen over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But how many can say they danced the night away with Chip over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Sophie can!
Of course, sometimes the best photo spots are when you are just relaxing in Epcot’s World Showcase, at the tables in front of the American Adventure pavilion. Hey, who put that picture in here?
Oh, you know what? I hear getting your picture taken in front of Cinderella Castle can be kind of neat. Tell me, what do you think?
I hope, in a roundabout way, that I have answered the question of where the best Disney photo spots are. The truth of the matter is that wherever your camera is pointed is where the best photo spot is! These pictures bring a smile to my face, and in some cases, a tear to my eye, as I remember the wonderful memories that these pictures remind me of. Thank you for indulging me as I took my trip down memory lane!

Well that just made me tear up a little bit Mike! I love the shot of Sophie with Jasmine. So precious!
Beautiful pictures Mike!! Very special memories, thanks for sharing them!!
True, True, True… wherever the camera is pointing is where the best photo shot it. And I especially like photos from the water, as you illustrate with capturing the Grand Floridian. Disney designers truly made great scenes a priority.
I agree – every shot at Disney is a magical moment! I love that picture of you, Mike! You look so happy!

I loved this! I forgot about taking neat resort shots from the water – your GF picture is gorgeous! And the whispering to Jasmine moment is absolutely precious. :)
Thanks for sharing some of your most special Disney memories! I’ll miss Minnie’s couch, too…
