A wall of a few words with plenty of meaning. If you’re feeling worldly and philosophical this wall is meant for you. Regardless of what continent you’re born on, what language you speak, or where you happen to fall on the economic spectrum, we are all children of the world.

“Fichwa Fellow!” Hidden Mickey Wall

If you’ve been following along the Disney fandom you’ll know that there are hidden Mickeys all over Walt Disney World. In Swahili “Fichwa” means Hidden, this wall is a not-so-hidden, hidden Mickey. Don’t be too quick to overlook the details where this wall is located in Harambe Marketplace, there are details to be explored. Take a moment to enjoy the scenery and the foods found at the marketplace.

Mossy Wall

The newest addition to the wall family. With the opening of Pandora the World of Avatar, the mossy wall started creating a huge buzz among the Disney community weeks before official opening. There is plenty of moss to be found around Pandora, you can snag the perfect picture from any location. Our favorite is the “toxic” wall located upfront by Pongu Pongu (location of the instagram’d Nightblossom Drink), it features more colors of blues and purples, than the other sections of the Moss Wall. During morning hours and some afternoons you can find Disney Photopass photographers at that particular section.

Not a wall, but if done right the Pandora Floors give amazing picture opportunities. Pandora at night is beautiful with the bio-luminescent lights. The bio-luminescent floor is throughout Pandora, just make sure to look down.

What is better than a wall that compliments you? Probably nothing.
You can find this beautiful wall in the Harambe Marketplace. It is located in an indent in the wall of the food shacks in the on your left.
Please note: this is actually the walkway into the cast member’s backstage area, so please be mindful when taking photos at this location as there are cast members who are working or on break.

Epcot

IMG-6681
Blue Wall
Location: Epcot, Future World West – Imagination!
Photo Credit: @stacytally
Considered a hidden gem, this wall is found next to the bathrooms located next to Journey into Imagination with Figment. You’ll have to go around the Figment building to find the bathrooms. The blue wall is located right next to another (undocumented) Red wall. To capture the perfect picture at this location it is best to visit around afternoon – mid afternoon before the sun shines directly towards the wall.

Blueberry Wall

Location: Epcot, Future World Main – Project Tomorrow

Located directly in front of the Bubblegum Wall. To find the perfect lighting at this location make sure to stop by both sides of the exits. During certain times the lighting on one side is better than the other.

IMG-6683
Bubblegum Wall
Location: Epcot, Future World Main – Project Tomorrow
Instagram: @bubblegumwallphotos
Photo Credit: @april__thomas
This wall gets it name due to it’s uncanny resemblance to pink and blue bubblegum. You can find this wall on either side of the exits for Spaceship Earth (Project Tomorrow) located in the front of the park. Hop on board Spaceship Earth through the iconic geosphere for a look at the landmark moments that made today’s communications technology possible. Don’t forget to thank the Phoenicians!
Maybe I am biased to this wall because this is also one of my favorite rides at Epcot. Why you ask? It’s a 16 minute AC ride. I have also lost a shoe at this wall, but that is another story, for another time. To find the perfect lighting at this location make sure to stop by both sides of the exits, during certain times the lighting on one side is better than the other.

Sometimes as frequent visitors of the park it’s easy to overlook the beauty of the showcase pavilions. One of the most photographed locations is located in Morocco at the Moroccan Mosaic walls and fountains. Inside Morocco it’s not hard to miss these, there is a wall fountain located inside to the left which is the perfect instagram worthy photo shot. Check out the other mosaic walls located through the Moroccan pavilion.

Found at the entrance into the Land pavilion. This wall is mostly overlooked as guests pour into The Land to get first in line for Soarin and/or to cool off in the air conditioning. But take a moment an appreciate this beautiful wall, snap your picture.

 Paint by Number Mural Wall
Location: Epcot, World Showcase During 2017 Festival of Arts & 2018 Festival of Arts
Photo Credit: @abbycorkins
Located between Port of Entry and Canada, and right next to Decadent Delights, guests can wait in a short line to be given a random number to help create a painting. Each color has a fun name like Pluto Paw, Pretty as a Princess, Minnie’s Glove, Silly Old Bear and Pixie Hollow Sky. Each guest goes to color in 5 corresponding pieces, by the end of the day the full picture can be seen. Guests were give a postcard with the final mural which they could take home.

We really hope that this experience will come back for years to come. It made for fun and exciting photo opportunities.

Bullseye 
Floor
Location: Hollywood Studios – Muppets Courtyard
Photo Credit: @abbycorkins
While this may not be a wall per say, it is still an extraordinary photo opportunity. Found in the Muppets Courtyard next to Pizza Rizzo. If you cannot find it make sure that you are looking down! Worse lighting for this photo is during the morning to noon time when the sun is directly over the floor; for best lighting try late afternoon to early evening. While you’re at this location take a look around at other Muppets inspired photo opportunities which did not make this list. Next to the bullseye floor you can find a blue door great for photo opportunities. Don’t forget that floors make the perfect setting for a #shoefie!

This wall has many sides like the one pictured below as well as a full red side perfect for those solid background. You can find perfect lighting majority of the day since there are many different sides to pick from. You may have to go around the corners and behind the chairs to find that perfect lighting angle.

Cast Member’s 
Door
Location: Magic Kingdom, Main Street U.S.A.
Instagram: @mk.castingagency
Photo Credit: @benncrane
Again, another non-wall. This door got so popular that there is an instagram handle just for it. Did you know that there is a version of this door on every version of Main Street U.S.A. around the world?

“…The door was installed in 2005, along the exterior to Disney Clothiers. The Magic Kingdom Casting Agency door simultaneously pays homage to all that Walt Disney could imagine, by listing him as the Founder and Director Emeritus, but also to the amazing army of Cast Members that stand on the frontlines of magic every single day by quoting Walt Disney. The quote from W.E.D.? “It takes People to Make the Dream a Reality.” Unlike the lofty windows of Main Street U.S.A., remember to always look up, this door is on the street level and accessible to everyone. Add in a pair of decorative Mickeys and the opening date for the office, as well as the Magic Kingdom, listed as Open Since ’71, and you have the makings of a wonderfully charismatic scene. A place that encourages guests to recall the Cast Members that make each day memorable….” – Main Street Gazette.

You can find this door on the left hand side of Main Street U.S.A. as you’re walking towards the Castle. If you’re Emporium savvy, it’ll be in a small alley way after the “seasonal items” door into the Emporium. Please note that this door is fake and does not open, please do not try to open it!

Castle Walls

Photo Credit: @thekingdomtwins_
The magical castle walls, it makes for some of the most whimsical backgrounds in photos. With the expansion of Magic Kingdom’s Hub area and addition of New Fantasyland we see more castle walls now than ever before. If you take a moment to look around you’ll see the beautiful details and the photo opportunities with these walls. Did you know that the castle walls in new Fantasyland are actually designed to take you from the town feel to the village. Next time you’re in this area notice how one side of the dividing castle walls behind the castle are made to separate the two sections of Fantasyland.

Whats better than some old time circus signs to see Dumbo the Flying Elephant? If you’re a Dumbo fan this is a perfect wall for you… or if you’re looking for a brick background.

Hubgrass (floor)

Stop and smell the turf at the end of Main Street. Honestly it is such a lovely area to sit down on the floor and enjoy an afternoon. There aren’t any benches, either…you’re meant to sit right on the astroturf. One of my favorite memories was when my friends and I decided it would be a great idea to pick up Publix Subs (Florida Market) and enjoy the afternoon picnic as the Move it Shake it parade was on going in front of the castle. There are great opportunities for photos on the hubgrass, during certain days and mornings there are photopass cast members out taking pictures by hubgrass. They’ll take pictures of you on the floor if you ask nicely.

IMG-6707Purple Wall

Safe to say this is the wall that started the craze. It’s funny because I cannot tell you how many times I have walked by this wall and never noticed it was Purple until photos at walls started trending. Located at the right hand side of Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor, it’s also a walkway from Main Street. Certain times of the day there are photopass photographers stationed by the Purple Wall. I’ve found the best times for lighting would be closer to sundown. It’s the best shade of purple. During other times of the day this wall can look very much gray, most afternoon times when the sun is directly shining on the wall, and when it’s raining.

At last we’re on the final wall for Magic Kingdom and probably my favorite area in the whole Kingdom. The tangled bathrooms! Yes folks, it’s the bathrooms. But it is the prettiest bathrooms you’ll ever see. There are so many walls to take pictures at here, the one pictured below can be found inside area of the woman’s bathroom

Boardwalk Sign Wall

You’ll have to get a little creative with this particular wall since it is located next to a stairwell leading down. Still, we’ve seen some pretty rad (people still say this right) photos come out of this wall. Located at the Boardwalk Resort, to the right of the entrance to the front desk.

Cotton Candy Wall

If you’ve never seen this wall in person then I would like to take the pleasure to tell you that this is actually coral. When we first went to find this wall we were a little stunned to realize it is probably seaweed since it does look a lot like Cotton Candy. Regardless you can find this wall in the Nemo section of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. As a bonus to your wall trip, stop by the pool-side bar called The Drop Off and enjoy a relaxing tall class of adult dole-whip with rum. Oh yeah, it makes the photo trip totally worth the drive. Maybe grab one for your photographer for a job well done. Move around the whole pool area to find the perfect lighting location for your cotton-candy inspired photoshoot.

What better way to show off where you are than this wall? When I was a young one this was the last wall we’d see as we drove home from Magic Kingdom. Lots of families stop before their trip home and miss this beauty. Be sure to stop by on your next visit and snag a photo.
