Instagram Tips for Disney World
If you’re traveling to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” then you probably want your photos to capture as much of that magic as possible. Thankfully, Disney World is covered with endless instagram-worthy photo backgrounds! In addition to the iconic landmarks at each park, there are also plenty of hidden gems like #DisneyWalls, which are beautifully painted murals or patterns. Below, we’ve come up with some of our favorite photo spots and handy tricks to add some pixie dust to your IG page.
Recommended Photo Spots
Secret tip: if you ask the cast members selling the giant Mickey balloons on Main Street U.S.A. if you can hold them for a picture they will let you! They will still keep a grip on them to ensure the balloons don’t fly away, but will step out of frame far enough to not be in your shot.
Know Your Angles
- Try to crop out as many of the other guests as possible. We know this is easier said than done, but interesting angles can definitely help!
- Be sure to focus on the composition and understand the rule of thirds. Turn on the gridlines in your phone’s camera settings and try to align the subject at the intersection of the dividing lines, or along one of the lines itself.
Try to Use Natural Light
- Thankfully most of the best photo opportunities in the parks are outside and Florida is known for its sunny weather! Using natural light instead of flash usually leads to richer and brighter photos.
- Be mindful of shadows and how different times of day affect them.
● Most guests arriving early to the parks are doing so for the rides, which means that areas for photos will be less crowded. Take advantage of this time to get as many shots in as possible before it fills up!
Plan Your Outfit
● If there’s a certain area in the park that you plan on posing in front of, color coordinate your outfit! This will make the photo more concise and be more appealing to the eye.
- Take advantage of props to add some excitement to the photo!
- Examples of this can be a new set of ears, a famous snack like a Mickey pretzel, or a lightsaber.
Utilize the Photographers
● If no one in your group is good at capturing the perfect pic, don’t worry! The parks are full of experienced photographers with professional cameras. There is usually a little bit of a line for these photo spots, however they can be worth the wait. You will have to pay for the photos unless you are a gold or platinum annual passholder.
Hopefully these photo spot ideas and tips prove to be helpful for your next trip to the parks! For more inspiration be sure to follow us on instagram, @MyVIPTour.
