10 Most Beautiful Places in All of Walt Disney World

It’s easy to see that Disney really takes great pride in its park, resorts, and just the grounds overall. Most would say that every bit of Disney World is beautiful, but there are some places that just simply cannot be beat. Here are some places that we consider, the ten most beautiful places in all of Walt Disney World.

10. Magic Kingdom Entrance

Kicking off our list at number ten is the ever-famous Magic Kingdom Entrance. This is one of the most beautiful places in all of Walt Disney World for obvious reasons. The train station itself is beautiful. It’s the first thing you see as you pull up to the park and the last thing you see as you ride away. The gorgeous greenery and Mickey head are sure to bring tears of joy to your face. And that alone is beautiful.

9. Inside the American Adventure at Epcot

Pretty much everything in Epcot is beautiful, and you will see several Epcot spots on our list, but as for the American Adventure, it’s a no brainer. Many people think that this attraction, located in the America Pavilion, is nothing special. But they couldn’t be more wrong. Once you step foot inside the building, your breath is sure to be completely taken away. The stories high ceiling itself makes the place even more beautiful. The classic décor, mixed with the gorgeous balcony, it is truly a beautiful place. It’s so beautiful, that it is often used for weddings. So, even if you don’t want to watch the show, I suggest visiting just to look around. You may even catch the “Voices of Liberty” singing a song or two!

8. Italy Pavilion

As stated before, Epcot will appear several times on this list. If you have ever been to Epcot, it’s easy to see why the Italy Pavilion makes the cut. Not only are the buildings that make up the Italy Pavilion absolutely picturesque, but the view and foliage are as well. Hanging flowers beneath the streetlights, gondolas floating in the water, you might believe you have actually entered Italy. And there is nothing wrong with that!

7. Morocco Pavilion

The last Epcot spot to make our list is the Morocco Pavilion. This is probably the most unique pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase, in my opinion. The detail here is absolutely unreal. The fountains, the tile work, the lighting, all are absolutely stunning. Everywhere in this pavilion makes for gorgeous pictures, any time of the day!

6. Port Orleans Grounds

The Port Orleans area is made up of two separate resorts, Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter. Both are equally beautiful and completely picturesque. Riverside transports you directly into the Louisiana Bayou. Set along the Sassagoula River, you’ll find yourself surrounded by gorgeous flowers, gazebos, and gorgeous fountains. The resort architecture is one of the best Disney has to offer. You’ll find white, stately mansions, along with rustic, wooden cabins. But that’s not all, if you mosey on down the river, you will find Port Orleans French Quarter. From the cobblestone streets, to the charming street lamps, you will be completely immersed in the French Quarter theme from the moment you arrive. Not bad for a couple of Moderate Resorts!

5. Disney’s Wedding Pavilion

Couples don’t choose to get married here for no reason! Disney’s Wedding Pavilion is a dream location for any wedding. Located inside the Grand Floridian Resort area, the wedding pavilion comes complete with views of the lagoon and Cinderella Castle! The detail of the building and surrounding area is classic and just overall magical. You are sure to feel like you have stepped straight into a fairytale.

4. Polynesian Resort Grounds

Beaches in central Florida? No problem! Disney has that too! One of the most beautiful sights Disney has to offer is the Polynesian Resort grounds. Complete with a beach, waterfalls, and palm trees, this resort is beautiful inside and out. The feeling of the resort is natural and fresh, just like the islands.

3. Disney’s Boardwalk

This resort is another fabulous example of fantastic Disney theming. The Boardwalk has all the fun and character of somewhere reminiscent to Atlantic City, but with all that wonderful Disney magic. Just taking a stroll along the Boardwalk will really make you feel like you are truly in one of the most beautiful places in all of Disney. It’s definitely a one of a kind resort.

The character and details are mesmerizing inside and out. The grounds are lovely, but the lobby is really the star here. The chandeliers and vintage elevator make this lobby a true stand out. Not to mention the cute characters inside the floor tiles. Can you find Cinderella?

1. In Front of Cinderella Castle

It’s hard to describe the magnificence of Cinderella Castle, and if you have seen it in person, you know what I mean. It’s easy to see why it has made number one on our list, but its beauty is truly remarkable. The first thing most guests do upon arriving to Magic Kingdom is snap a picture in front of the castle. It’s an icon, and nothing can really compare to the brilliance of Cinderella Castle.

Whether you are experiencing these places first hand, or simply viewing them from a photo, it’s easy to see why these ten places can truly be called some of the most beautiful placed in all of Walt Disney World.
