One of my favorite theme park activities is Spot the Kodak Picture Spot. It has become one of our favorite games at Imaginerding. Andrew and I will hold competitions to see who can nab the most during each trip. Here are some from 2008 and 2007.
A welcoming round spot outside the Rose Garden at the Magic Kingdom.
A rather ornate spot in a famous spot.
A spot fit for a princess.
Outside of the Jungle Cruise.
Can you find this spot in FutureWorld.
A Belle spot, non?
Nice spot, eh? Or pass the syrup-y spot.
A spot of extinction!
In Vinyl Leaves: Walt Disney World And America, the author talks about the Kodak Picture Spot and how it confused people at first. Were you supposed to take a picture of the sign? Were you supposed to gather your family around the sign to take a picture? Eventually, Disney decided to add the picture of what you are supposed to be photographing. I love the looks I get, now, when take a picture of a Kodak Picture Spot.
Don’t forget to stop by our site and leave some Disney Geek love!

I love that idea! I’m going to have to try and nab as many Picture Spots as possible in future…
Weird looks when taking a photo? I would have to say I have never encountered such a thing. 🙂
Love the post! I must say when I see those photo spots around the parks I always think of you.
Call me ignorant, but I never realized that each sign had a different style to it. When I glimpse the signs I tend to ignore them because I don’t like “traditional” pictures. I guess I have a reaosn to go look at them now. Thanks for this post!
I thought about sending a few shots like this over to you; sort of tribute. But it appears you have a rather nice collection already.
Very cool! I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, glad I’m not the only one that thinks it is a bit ironic to take a photo of the photo signs.
As for the strange looks when taking photos, they are best when you are done and they are still standing there trying to figure out what you were shooting!
Great idea; can’t believe I never thought to snap all the Kodak Pictures Spot signage before…looks like I have an assignment on my next trip!
