In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion grams’ tonight! Hehe!
Animal Kingdom is such a beautiful part of mixing so many cultures, counties, and species together into one blended family. It truly feels like you’ve stepped off a plane in Africa or Asia. With this, comes so many beautiful scenic backdrops that are the perfect aesthetic. See below for my favorite places to smile for the gram.
The Tree of Life –
You can’t visit Animal Kingdom without admiring the Tree of Life. Be sure to snap a picture in front of this symbolic tree. There are so many places to get a good picture of the Tree of Life without people in the background. Try walking the path behind the tree for best views.
Location: Path between Africa and Asia
Doors to Africa –
These carved wood doors are larger than life. They have a variety of animals carved into the frame.
Location: Walking into Africa from Discovery Island.
“Fichwa! Fellow” Mickey Mural –
This iconic wall has become Insta-famous for the adorable hand painted picture of Mickey Mouse and the phrase listed below. Fichwa Fellow is Shawhili for hidden mickey! You can tag this wall on Insta for a feature @fichwafellowwall.
Location: You can find this wall in Africa at the Harambe Market.
Lion King Mural –
This NEW wall has quickly become a favorite for all ages. Disney painted this wall in honor of the new Lion King live action movie opening in July 2019. The wall is rich in vibrant color and showcases the iconic scene from Lion King!
Location: You can’t miss it as you walk towards Pandora (across from Tritton)
DinoLand Carnival –
While this area is a bit of a dud in my opinion, it does offer some fun and unique picture opportunities.
Everest is a staple of Animal Kingdom. You can catch a good glimpse of the mountain on almost any bridge in Africa. There's usually a photographer available to take pictures at these bridges or near the Monkey exhibition as seen below.
Location: Secret - email me to find out! :) email@example.com
THE Moss Wall –
Pandora is known for their iridescent flowers and illuminating rocks. There is one wall in particular that has trumped them all for instagrammers (it even has it's own account @themossywall). If you want to be extra, order the Night Blossom beverage before the picture!
Location: Near the Satu’li Canteen/Pongu Pongu drink stand.
You are most beautiful wall -
This wall, which spells out the phrase “You are most beautiful,” is also located in the Harambe Market. This wall also has it's own Instagram account @youaremostbeautifulwall. Since this wall is a little more tricky to find (considering it is in the Cast Member Entrance) there aren't too many people here.
Location: Cast Member Entrance near Harambe Market (left corner).
Animal Kingdom Safari -
Even though this is a ride, it deserves an honorable mention! You can take some of the most amazing photos of rare animals.
