It’s impossible to go to Disney World without taking a ton of photos along the way! There are so many fun little photo ops everywhere you look. And who can resist taking pictures of your little ones having the time of their lives?!?! Sometimes, though, Disney pictures can become boring and predictable. To inspire you to keep your photos interesting on your next trip to Disney World, here are 6 great places for photos in Epcot.
My favorite Disney World photos are those that don’t scream “We’re at Disney!” So, some of the locations on this list are places that you may not necessarily think of when you think of where to take photos at Epcot.
#1: Spaceship Earth
Spaceship Earth is the icon of Epcot. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it is probably the most photographed location in the park. Like the castle in the Magic Kingdom, taking your family’s picture in front of Spaceship Earth is something that you must do at least once per trip.
For a different perspective, try taking this photo from the backside of Spaceship Earth. Not only will this give you a new view in the background, it will also hopefully have fewer people in your photo.
You could also take your photo with Spaceship Earth from the World Showcase side of the park. This way, you will get World Showcase Lagoon in the picture with Spaceship Earth in the distance.
#2: Nemo and Friends
One of the cutest pictures you can take in Epcot, especially if you have little ones, is with the Nemo and friends statues out in front of The Seas with Nemo and Friends. These playful fish are tucked into some shrubbery as you approach the pavilion.
The only problem with this location is that, on busy days, it can be difficult to get a picture without other people in it because it is such a popular area. To solve this problem, try taking this one at night when there are less people in the area.
#3: The Sharks
Inside of The Seas pavilion, after you have exited the ride, you will find yourself in an area with several aquarium exhibits. In one corner, you will see Bruce’s Sub House. The focal point of this section is a huge Bruce with his mouth open.
You and your family can take your picture inside of Bruce’s mouth! This is always a fun picture for the kids!
There are a few other photo ops with sharks in this area too.
#4: The Hot Air Balloons
In the center of The Land pavilion, you will see several hot air balloons hanging from the ceiling. They hang over the seating area for Sunshine Seasons.
From the upper floor of the pavilion, you can get a more straight on view of the balloons. This is a great place to get a unique photo of your family.
I love this location because you can’t tell by looking at the background that you are at Disney World.
#5: Landmarks of the World Showcase Countries
Each of the eleven countries of World Showcase has a replica of a famous landmark from that country in it. As you work your way around World Showcase, take a picture of your family in front of each of these landmarks.
You could also use this as an opportunity to teach your kids about these landmarks.
#6: The Telephone Booths
While working your way around World Showcase, you can find lots of fun little details in each of the countries.
In the United Kingdom, you will notice a few bright red telephone booths. Some of these open and some don’t. Either way, the phone booths make for some silly photos. Take some time playing around with fun poses on this one!
And you can explain to your kids what it was like back in the old days before cell phones!
Like all of the parks, Epcot has lots of nooks and crannies filled with fun little details that make for great photos. This list is, by no means, exhaustive, but it should give you a great start on finding interesting places to take pictures on your next Disney World trip. This list should also inspire you to mix it up a bit and get some photos with some of these lesser-known areas of the parks. I hope you enjoy this list of great places for photos at Epcot.
