10 Best Photo Spots for Pictures at Disney California Adventure

Spending the day at Disney California Adventure is always a blast and wanting to snag some sweet pictures to remember your day by is a given, but where to start. Sure Disneyland has some pretty amazingly iconic no-brainer places to grab the perfect picture but what about Disney California Adventure? I've got the short list of my top places to capture the essence of the park while making memories with your family. If you are just visiting for the day, the fine photogs at the park can make some extra magic or even lend you a hand in taking a picture for you so don't be shy to ask.

 At the end of Hollywood Land you will find this photo opportunity. A Photog is normally nearby.

Being a passholder for over 5 years now, I have quite the collection of pictures I have to admit as most Ap's do. As my daughter gets older and open to new experiences we have been enjoying our days at a slower pace taking the park in. I've got my top places to take pictures listed below for you, many that are Nikon Photo Spots specifically noted to assure that perfect shot every time. Now this is where you make them your own and add your personality! Many of these spots you will find Disney characters who will join in on the fun too!

 Mickey's Fun Wheel - Nighttime at DCA offers a whole new take on the park!

  1. Red Trolly Car on Buena Vista Street: Hop on or get a picture along side it before it takes it's trip down Hollywood Land. Lucky and you might even run into Mickey himself along with the Red Car Trolley News Boys.
  2. Full size Walt statue at the end of Buena Vista Street: Find Walt immortalized as he would have appeared stepping off the train in California from Kansas City. The Statue of Walt and his ever so famous mouse is set between 1923- 1937. 
  3. Perspective in Hollywood Land: It's always sunny in California and blue skies are abound! Get that perfect picture located next to the Hyperion Theatre.
  4. Car Land Billboard: Welcome to Cars Land, this photo opportunity is picture perfect for a postcard.
  5. Plane near Soaring over the World: You never know who you might run into here, check the official App for times!
  6. Fisherman's Net at Paradise Pier: Get inside the net and be the catch of the day!
  7. Grizzly Peak Waterfall – By Golden Vine Winery near Pacific Wharf: You can usually find a Disney Photog here to help capture that special shot.
  8. Grizzly Peak – The Wheel House at Grizzly River Run: Great backdrop for a family photo. Oh and right before you get to this spot you may have the luck of running into Nick and Judy from Zootopia.
  9. Paradise Park – Mickey’s Fun Wheel: Day or night it's one of the most Iconic places to get a picture within the park.
  10. Cars Land – Radiator Springs Racers: The towering Cadillac Range mountains serve as a majestic backdrop for your family shots anytime of the day!
  11. Hollywood Land – The Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! : This buildings facade is big, bright and bold! 
  12. Bonus picture! Cat lover? Heard of the "wild" cats that roam the parks. A sure fire spot to see a pair of them is between Grizzly Rapids and Soaring over the World. They even have their own Instagram page. 

They are always changing things up at the park! During the holidays there are other fun photo opps now that Halloween Time has moved to DCA. Last year had some amazing and spooky magic added by the photographers at the park! Annual Passholders also have exclusive magic opportunities they add during AP events.

Besides all the fun spots to grab pictures, check the Disneyland App for character meet and greets where you can get great pictures with many of your favorites like Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Pluto, The Incredibles, Sofia the First, Oswald and super heroes like Captain America and Spider Man. During special events like the Holidays or Lunar New Year they also have special meet and greets featuring special characters like Elena of Avalor and Mulan. Best way to find characters within the park is by downloading the official Disneyland App. There you can find times and who will be where at any given time during your visit.
