Most guests visit Disney Springs for so much more than taking photos. But not many people think to go there for the Disney Springs photo opps. They go for the food at restaurants like the Boathouse, Morimoto, STK and more. They visit for the snacks at places like Amorette’s Patisserie or the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. Guest shop for souvenirs to take home at the Disney Store or exclusive items that can’t be found anywhere else. They even go for the experiences like the Aerophile or an Amphicar. And yet there are so many great places to grab a fun photo for that photo album or social media page.
We took a walk around Disney Springs and found some great locations for a family photo, a selfie or even an artistic photo. Come with us on our walk around Disney Springs!
Where there is heat and humidity like in Florida, there are bound to be water features. This beauty makes a great photo opportunity for a formal photo or even something that captures a moment if small children are having fun playing with the water in the pool below!
See something that makes you smile? Find a way to use it in your photo! This neon sign plus a wall of adorable Disney characters makes it a fun photo opportunity.
Of course there are photo opportunities with Disney characters! Imagine your growing pre-teen standing under Mr. Potato Head’s hand as if to say, “Stop growing up!”
Restaurants throughout Disney Springs have their own unique personalities. T-Rex for example, offers this great pre-historic theme and you’ll see lots of families taking photos with their favorite dinosaur.
There is plenty of shopping to do but if you stop to look around, there are a lot of options for photographs too. The Lego Store has several larger than life or life-size Lego creations outside of the store that make for great photo ops.
You’re forgiven if you’re “of a certain age” and don’t know what these are but chances are if you have someone in your travel party that is over 18 but under 30, they do. These colorful walls are tagged on posts all over Instagram and there are even checklists of Disney Insta-Walls to visit throughout the Resort.
Disney goes to a lot of trouble to “tell the story” and Disney Springs has it’s own backstory to tell. Throughout the area, you’ll see the story change as the “town” changes. The landscaping helps to tell the story and you can use those markers in your photos.
The Calm Water
Put the water of Disney Springs in the background or find a footbridge and take the shot. You’ll see watercraft like the Amphibicar or the water taxis coming and going and they’ll make your photos more interesting.
Look In Every Direction
Look up, Look Down, Look All Around. Disney Springs has experiences that lend themselves well to photographs whether your feet are firmly planted on the ground or if you are high above looking down on other guests. From any of those vantage points, you can add great photo memories to your collection.
No matter how you plan to spend your time at Disney Springs, make sure you’ve got a well charged camera or phone battery and are in the moment. There’s bound to be a great photo opportunity just around the next corner! Remember, it’s all about the memories and not the merchandise.
