4 of My Favorite Magic Kingdom Photo Ops

There are so many amazing things to do in the Magic Kingdom, let alone all over the Walt Disney World property itself. From the rides and attractions to the character interactions and shows, there is basically something for everyone in the happiest place on Earth. One of my personal favorite things to do is collect pictures in this happy, magical place. Whether these photos sit in frames, hang on the walls, or are arranged in scrapbooks these pictures will last a lifetime and allow me to relive the great memories that they have captured. In this post, I am going to highlight 4 of my favorite the Magic Kingdom photo opportunities around the Magic Kingdom.


*Please keep in mind this list is in no particular order.*

1. Cinderella Castle

This is the iconic “right in front of the castle” photo that everyone lines up to take when they arrive at the Magic Kingdom. There are a line of Photo Pass cast members lined up (about 4 or 5) to give these guests their perfect shot. This has always been a personal favorite Magic Kingdom photo op simply because of how classic it really is. When I first arrive at the park one of my favorites things to do is see all the families taking their group photos in front of the castle! The pure happiness (or uncooperative child) is always fun to see and is usually very easy to relate to! Personally, I always have to take a picture with the castle when visiting the Magic Kingdom.




2. Tinker Bell Meet & Greet

This feisty little pixie is always a blast to play with! I make it a point to make time to visit Tinker Bell on almost every single visit to the Magic Kingdom. Typically, I like to meet Tink early on in the day due to her high energy level! I find this to be an amazing way to start my day with an upbeat activity that can set the pace for a positively happy day! There are times where the wait for this meet and greet gets a bit lengthy, however, on a usual moderate crowd level day I am able to get in and out of this meet and greet within 45 minutes. This time even gives a good 10 minutes of one on one time with Tink!


3. Peter Pan Meet & Greet

Well, as we all know when you have some time with Tink you need to have some time with the one and only Peter Pan himself as well! Those that know me on a personal level know that Peter Pan has been a long time favorite of mine. The amount of excitement and energy that Peter Pan brings to his meet and greets are at an all time high. Every single time I have met this magical character he has brought pure joy and excitement to my visits at the Magic Kingdom. Peter Pan makes sure you walk away from his meet and greet with nothing but happy thoughts!


4. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Now, this isn’t technically a “photo op”, however, I always love the photos/videos that this ride gives me! I tend to not ride the Mine Train often simply due to wait times, but every single time I have been able to ride it has been a special occasion making my memories and these pictures important to me. Whether it is the placement of the camera or simply the enjoyment of the ride itself this ride produces some really great pictures!


(Please don’t mind my boyfriend, he makes it a point to look “bored” with every single ride.)

Well, these are four of my favorite photo ops around the Magic Kingdom. Keep an eye out for another post with more great photo ops all around the magical surroundings of the Walt Disney World property here in Orlando, Florida.

  1. I’ve only been to Disney once, and this was years ago, but I enjoyed it. Now that I’m much older I’d love to be able to explore more!

    • I can agree getting there early can help but I’ve gotten there much later in the day most times and have had a better time than when I try to make rope drop actually!


  2. Where can you see the Mine Train photos!? I’ve never seen a station with lots of screens, like you get at Buzz or Splash Mountain, and now I feel like I’ve been missing out!
