Favorite Epcot Photo Spots

Lately, the website has provided many lengthy user guides, so I thought it would be a good day to share some favorite Epcot photo spots. For the sake of this review, we’ll take a walk through a few of the pavilions in the World Showcase.

The World Showcase is a place that is typically not too crowded (with a few exceptions). It opens at 11:00 a.m. daily, and there are many quiet places to take a break or enjoy the scenery. If you are interested in learning more about the World Showcase, this page here links to all the separate reviews of the different countries.

While I’m in the park, I always notice how nicely everything seems to be centered around Spaceship Earth. There is various light to hot pink roses in this area that makes for a perfect photo spot!

Here is a close-up!

They usually have a nice arrangement of flowers before you enter the World Showcase at the International Gateway.

The France Pavilion in the distance from the bridge is another favorite Epcot photo spot.

This art display above is a fun stop for pictures in France looking out to the World Showcase lagoon.

The United Kingdom Pavilion has extraordinary gardens to tour for the World Showcase traveler.

Also making it an excellent photo spot at Epcot.

Breathtaking!

There is always time to stop and smell the roses….or might I say take pictures of flowers.

It’s always a good time to catch an image of a Friendship boat gliding across the lagoon.

The Canada Pavilion in the World Showcase is another of my favorite Epcot photo spots! Especially around the time when the sun is setting. The sun drops over the waterfall and mountains as it goes to sleep for the evening, making for some exquisite image captures.

Canada Waterfalls at Epcot in the World Showcase

This area is always fun to explore and there are a lot of great backdrops if you are looking to take that best Disney selfie or a family photo!

Mexico Pyramid in World Showcase at Epcot

The pyramid at the Mexico Pavilion. There are some different Epcot photo opportunities here as well, aside from the obligatory La Cava del Tequila margarita on the ledge posts.

La Cava offers a variety of margaritas.

But if you want or need one you can still try to make it a little bit different or original. Thirsty? What does that even mean these days?

It looks like I’m going to have to spend some more time in the Norway Pavilion very soon! My favorite photo spot here is the flowers growing on the rooftops! It’s not something you see every day in these parts.

Next along our travels is the China Pavilion. There are many photo spots here centered around the Temple of Heaven. China has some wonderful places to take pictures during the day or at nighttime.

Always trying to get a shot with Italy in the distance. This was taken from right inside the China pavilion at the World Showcase looking away toward Italy. Speaking of Italy…

The Italy Pavilion at Epcot also has a lot to offer.

It’s also my favorite pavilion in the World Showcase. Naturally, I have several favorite Epcot photo spots to share here.

This spot is great if you are looking to get away from the crowds and take some special photos.

I’ve always wanted a door with a fish handle. Hopefully, it’s not too slippery. I imagine it is still quite a difficult catch, even for the most amateur fisherman. It might not be a good idea for me to joke. Someone might take it the wrong way, and I would hate to be misinterpreted.

This wall has a face on it and I’ve heard it’s a great place to take a selfie. If you are like me and traveling solo through the World Showcase. Just stand next to the face, whip out your phone and say “Bravo!”

I’m just kidding….or not.

Above we have the latest Disney Blogger on the scene wondering when their posts will go viral. I wouldn’t know anything about that. That’s me in the background.

Angel in Italy

There, that’s me–an angel on a pedestal. Actually, I do try to be as angelic as possible most of the time. This day-and-age it’s not always easy. I always try to remember that I haven’t walked in anyone else’s shoes, felt their feelings, or had to bear their burden. Compassion on the giving or receiving end is a wonderful thing.

Anyway, this Epcot photo spot would be fun if you stood there with the angel looking like she…or he is trying to give you directions. She looks like she is pointing toward the American Adventure telling you to get out of Italy….or something?

And then there is sunshine in Italy! The sun always shines brighter in this part of the World Showcase. Sunshine is my most favorite thing.

The Japan Pavilion is full of photo spots! There are gardens, private sitting areas, and little bridges. It’s another one of the more relaxing spots in the World Showcase.

There is usually a Bonsai tree garden on display here in the Spring. Below is one of my favorite photo spots.

Climb up to the 2nd balcony toward the entrance of Teppan Edo to get a better view! This is also an interesting spot for fireworks in the evening. It’s not a must-try, but if you haven’t seen the show several times, it is different.

You can also have dinner with a view if you like.

Here are a few photos of the Morocco Pavilion.

Morocco Pavilion in the World Showcase at Italy

If you haven’t spent much time exploring Morocco, then you are missing out. It comes in as my 2nd favorite country represented in the World Showcase. Truth be told, I probably spend more time here than I do in any other country.

Morocco Epcot Photo Spot

There are many detailed areas with neutral backdrops and pops of color. The coruscating light fixtures throughout the pavilion complement the feel of the country.

Even the camel appreciates them.

Came in the World Showcase

On 2nd thought, maybe he is the keeper of the light fixture? Maybe he alerts a cast member when the light bulb burns out to replace it. Regardless he stares at the light all day. I wonder what he’s thinking.

Shopping in the Morocco Pavilion is a real treasure

There are plenty of treasures to be found in Morocco if you are in the browsing mood. I have the most beautiful jeweled butterfly hair clip that I purchased here. It gets worn quite often.

Another example of the neutral backdrops found here with pops of color.

There is so much to see here, don’t forget to look up!

World Showcase Sunset

The World Showcase is also a special place to be at sunset. The sun setting over the lagoon is always a sight to behold. Just take a moment to be present in your surroundings. The photo opportunities are endless.

Back where we started! Only at sunset! I hope you enjoyed the pictures and the light (?) commentary. It’s all in good fun. Maybe you are inspired to go out and find a different angle if you are interested in photography.

Those planning a vacation might enjoy staying at one of the Epcot Resorts.

The ones within walking distance of Epcot include Disney’s Beach Club (review), the Boardwalk Inn (review), and the Yacht Club at Disney.

I hope you enjoyed these Epcot photos! When I originally started taking photos for the site (with no editing tools, obviously!). Maybe one day I’ll update them, but for now, you might enjoy these Epcot Flower and Garden photos.
