Disneyland and social media have been good friends for a long time. Whenever Disney rolls out new treats, they are so colorful and vibrant; you cannot take an Instagram photo before you chow down. At Walt Disney World, Instagram Walls became a huge sensation, all because of one purple wall. What a lot of people don’t realize is that Disneyland has Instagram walls too. Some of them predate Instagram. They’ve been trending on social media below the radar before Instagram Walls were a known thing. When Instagram released a list of the most Instagrammed places in the world, four Disney Parks made a list. Disneyland was number one. For an idea of how far back this goes, take the following wall as the first example among our picks for the Best Instagram Walls at Disneyland. Often you can even find a PhotoPass photographer at these spots to help capture the shots!

It’s hard not to get swept up in the romance of the 360-degree projections and emotionally driven music in the Animation Courtyard.
The Small World Wall
It makes sense that one of the most popular Disneyland backdrops is associated with one of the most photographed locations in Disneyland.

The Blue Wall

The Test Wall
There is a legendary and mysterious wall that is quickly gaining attention at Disneyland. It’s been around since before opening day. Find it in an isolated corner of Main Street USA near the lockers.
