"when we're making memories, happy days are always here!"

It's time for another Disney post! Today I'm gonna talk about something fairly simple: my favorite photo ops in the Magic Kingdom.

Main Street, U.S.A. alone has many opportunities for photos! Some of my favorites are: the bench with Goofy by Exposition Hall, on the right when you enter the Magic Kingdom; the fire station; the Barber Shop, especially if you have children; and the bench with Roy and Minnie, at the head of Main Street (or by Town Hall if it's the Christmas season).

Of course, there are endless opportunities for funny photos in front of the many shop windows, as well. And don't forget about the Disney's Photopass Photographer, who can take a photo of your entire party in front of Cinderella Castle!

For me, a trip to the Magic Kingdom wouldn't be complete without a snapshot of the infamous "Partners" statue in the center hub.

I like to take pictures of each of the "land" signs, which is really great for a Disney scrapbook. Adventureland is full of trees and totem poles, which really add to the jungle theme. Of course, you'll want to take pictures of Disney's famous mountain range, and 2 of them are conveniently in Frontierland! Woody and Jessie sometimes hang out near Splash Mountain to sign autographs, as well.

Liberty Square has lots of detail, from the hearse in front of the Haunted Mansion to the stocks in front of the river!

Toontown won't be there for long, so if you're going to WDW soon be sure to stop in and visit Mickey and Minnie's houses! (They're taking out Toontown with the new Fantasyland expansion.) You can meet the fairies from Pixie Hollow, your favorite princesses, and the Big Cheese himself!

In Fantasyland, you can "wake up Tink" in Tinker Bell's Treasures (especially fun if you have little girls). Head over to the front of Cinderella's Carousel and pretend to be King Arthur pulling the sword out of the stone - sadly, since Merlin's death a few years ago the sword-pulling show no longer exists, but it's still great for a picture! You can also meet-and-greet with Ariel in Ariel's Grotto, or with Belle in the enchanted story-garden on the right side of the castle.

See if you can find "Push," the talking, robotic garbage can in Tomorrowland. He's always a hoot. If you hang around you might spot Buzz Lightyear or Stitch for meet-and-greets, and don't forget about Space Mountain!

That's it for my favorite Magic Kingdom photo ops, though the choices are really endless!

Have a magical day, everyone!
