Top Ten On Ride Photos at Walt Disney World

Thinking about remembering your time on Rock N Rollercoaster, but can’t really do a selfie while going from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds? Well you’re in luck!

Walt Disney World is full of attractions that offer on-ride photos that you’re able to post on all your social media accounts. Now here’s the question…what’s the best?

EXPEDITION EVEREST

Arguably the top rollercoaster on property, Expedition Everest provides you a thrilling adventure to the forbidden mountain before coming face to face with the Yeti. In the middle though, you have an encounter that will leave you with nightmares.

The Yeti ripping up the track just before your train starts to move…yea…there’s a reason why this on-ride photo is so memorable!

Iconic. Thrilling. Gonna get wet! Need I say more?

BUZZ LIGHTYEAR SPACE RANGER SPIN

It’s all about staying focused. The photos from this attraction are usually really bad, but that’s because no one looks good when they’re trying to become a Galactic Hero!

DINOSAUR!

Welcome to our little trans-dimensional joyride, folks! When thinking about adrenaline, this photo brings the element of a dinosaur together with strobe lights, special effects and trying to get everyone in your row to do a pose out of Home Alone.

TEST TRACK

Want to be a Crash Test Dummy? This photo gets you at the exact moment that your lifelong dream…stays a dream. This has always been a favourite for those who actually want a non-posed photo of pure joy and excitement.

SEVEN DWARFS MINE TRAIN

With SDMT (welcome to Disney, the land of acronyms), you are able to see the future of Photopass and on-ride experiences.

You get a nice mix of photos AND video, so when you’re bragging to all your friends about how you only had to wait 5 minutes to ride because you booked your FP+ reservations 60 days out…this works!

SPACE MOUNTAIN

Ok, so as a true Disney fanatic this is a little bit of a miss. Not because we don’t enjoy our photo on a rollercoaster. This is all about the location of the camera; it’s at the beginning!

SPACESHIP EARTH

This had to end up on the list because of the way that Imagineers have brought together technology and story-telling to provide guests with a more comprehensive experience. Although not an “official” on-ride photo, you still get a chance to see your mug on the big screen (and small screen) in case you wanted to join the club of EPCOT fanatics!


Complete List of On-Ride Photos at Disney World

Putting together a ranking is fun, but it’s even more helpful if you know what attractions actually HAVE on-ride photos. Here you go:)

  • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
  • DINOSAUR
  • Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  • Frozen Ever After*
  • Pirates of the Caribbean*
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train*
  • Slinky Dog Dash*
  • Space Mountain
  • Splash Mountain
  • Test Track
  • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™

Attractions with an * are only available to guests who have Magic Bands, as there isn’t an end-of-ride location to scan a photopass card. RFID is the only way to grab these pics!


Do you have a favorite on-ride photo opportunity that we should look for on our next trip to Walt Disney World?
