My Picks for Best Photo Spots At Animal Kingdom
Animal Kingdom is one of the most stunning Disney Parks, in my opinion! It is so detailed, immersive, and has me in awe every time I visit, making it a mandatory park to spend the day at when I visit Walt Disney World Resort. Since it’s so pretty, it’s one of my favorite parks to take pictures in. As someone who gets overwhelmed with crowds, I decided to share some of my favorite photo spots that aren’t crowded.
Tree of Life Area
Of course Tree of Life, Animal Kingdom’s iconic landmark, is a very popular photo spot. However, if you want to get a picture where you’re standing in front of the tree right in the center, it can be crowded and have people in the background of your photo. I love to go to the furthest right side of the fence that lines Tree of Life, where typically not as many people go to take photos. I also love this spot because it puts me out of the background of people’s photos trying to take them in the center. Works for everyone!
Another great spot, is on the backside of Tree of Life, which you can access along Discovery Island Trails. The spot typically only has crowds when It’s Tough to Be A Bug is exiting, but other than that it’s empty and a great opportunity to do a vertical panoramic photo to get the whole tree in the picture!
Also along Discovery Island Trails on the backside of Tree of Life is a waterfall, with a bit of a Tree of Life view!
Pandora: World of Avatar
Pandora is incredibly immersive, making pretty much any spot there a beautiful photo. I do want to point out a couple of my favorites. There’s of course the famous “Moss Wall”, which is across from Satu’li (the quick service restaurant). It has great colors plus it’s an Insta-famous Disney wall!
If you want a photo with a great view of the floating rocks, go on the pathway between Flight of Passage and the Navi River Ride (on the outer rim of Pandora). To the right, there’s this sign:
If you stand in front of this side, it is typically shaded without the sun in your face, and you get this background:
There is of course the other famous Animal Kingdom Instagram wall with a Mickey that says “Fichwa! Fellow” Fichwa is Swahili for “hidden”, giving a nod to hidden Mickeys!
There are so many amazing spots to take pictures in Asia at Animal Kingdom! When you’re going from Africa to Asia, you’ll find spots along the wall that lines the river that have a great view of Expedition Everest:
Also near the Up! A Great Bird Adventure you’ll find statues of Dug and Russel, with the signage for the show behind it:
A couple of other great walls in Asia is the backside of the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck, and the Coca-Cola sign alongside Drink Whalla:
And there you have it! A few of my favorite photo spots that aren’t too crowded, making it easy to take your time getting the perfect photo! What are some of your favorite Animal Kingdom photo spots?
