34 Best Disney Instagram Accounts, A Comprehensive List

These Disney Instagram accounts are in no way ranked—we love ’em all equally. You should probably just go ahead and give them each a follow.

2. @thezachriddley

The advent of social media is amazing because it allows us to connect with real-life celebrities, like famed Imagineer Zach Riddley.

You’ll recognize Dr. Mark Penning from Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom on Disney+, but Dr. Mark is known among his patients (the animals at the park) for his dedication to their health and wellbeing, as well as the environment and sustainability.

A sibling site to WDW Magazine, we’re admittedly partial to Dad’s Guide to WDW. This site is a staple in Disney trip research. And Danny McBride’s Instagram coverage for Dad’s Guide? Iconic. Follow along on all the park adventures. We promise—it’s one of the best Disney Instagram accounts to follow.

11. @bobgurrofficial

That Disney guy with the earring. You’ve probably heard of him. Famed Imagineer Joe Rohde brought so much magic into our lives, from Animal Kingdom to Aulani Resort. Although Rohde has retired, he’s still very active on his Instagram, sharing unique insights into how Imagineers achieved some of their most stunning—and unbelievable—magic.

Our DLR Magazine is a quarterly title with stunning photos, insider secrets, exclusive interviews, and unrivaled stories of Disneyland history and lore.

Tatjana is the fearless Director of Communications at WDW Magazine, but she’s also quite the world traveler.

Tatjana also shares her love for making specialty Mickey Ears on her Instagram, which is always fun to watch.

17. @bret.iwan

It all started with a mouse. Walt Disney may have originated the voice of Mickey Mouse, but today, the voice comes from the legendary Bret Iwan. His Disney Instagram account is full of fun pictures of him and his husband exploring life as the voice of Mickey Mouse. If you’re a diehard Disney fan, this is one Insta not to miss.

19. @allears

all ears - best disney world instagram accounts

WDW Magazine may be our favorite source of Disney news, but All Ears is a close second. And their Instagram is full of Disney tips and insider information that is ideal for first-time visitors and veteran park-goers. And it’s not just a Disney World Instagram—you can follow their account for Universal tips and tricks as well.

20. @disneyparks

We love social media influencers, content creators, and independent news sources—because that’s what we are! But sometimes, the best way to get Disney news is straight from the horse’s mouth. Follow the official Disney Parks Instagram for big announcements, like ride developments, special menus, and after hours parties at Disney World and other parks.

21. @joshdamaro

Speaking of Disney Parks news, Josh D’Amaro is a great resource for that. He is the Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products after all. If you’re going to follow any corporate accounts from Disney, this is the one to look for.

22. @retrowdw

retro walt disney world - best walt disney world instagrams - disney instagram accounts

Are you the world’s biggest Disney history buff? Do you yearn for the olden days of Disney World, dreaming of Horizons, Pleasure Island, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride? Then check out RetroWDW, where you can see pics of the park as you remember it. By far, this is one of the coolest Disney World Instagrams for Disney historians and those who wax nostalgic.

23. @gratuitousdisneymemes

Whenever you need a good laugh, head to Gratuitous Disney Memes. The posts might not always be family-friendly, but adult Disney fans will surely get a kick out of every single post.

Ashley’s Pixie & Magic Instagram account is the Disney account to follow if you’re looking for style inspiration for your next park visit. Ashley is the queen of Disneybounding, and even when she’s not embodying an actual character, her outfits are always perfect.

As one of WDW Magazine’s dedicated reporters, Julie is frequently in the parks—so you can find her on the WDW Mag channel. But if you want Julie’s tips and pics for exploring the parks as a mother, you’ll want to follow her Sonshine Adventures account on Instagram, all about the life of being a Disney Mom.

26. @happiestplacephotography

Our magazine is one of the best places to find stunning photos of Walt Disney World. But if you want to take the magic of Disney World photography with you on the go, we recommend following Happiest Place Photography. Jaysen takes some of the most beautiful photos of Disney Parks that we’ve ever seen.

27. @disneyfoodblog

Feeling hungry? Disney Food Blog is known for having some of the best Disney food content out there. And while their website is great, you can find so much good info (and so many tantalizing photos to drool over) on their Instagram. Give them a follow.

28. @thedisneyfox

Steve and Carise’s love story is so beautiful, it’s almost like a Disney fairytale. We love to follow all their Disney adventures over at their Instagram (and we also love their Park Candy shop to boot). See what Disney fun they’re up to over on their Insta.

29. @disneymom2.0

disney mom ilana - best disney instagrams to follow

This is another favorite Disney Mom Instagram account to add to your list. Ilana captures her regular travels to the parks—with and without her kids—and offers up lots of tips, tricks, and insider details. She’s at the parks at least a few times a week, so following Ilana’s account is a good way to stay in the magic. Ilana is also a great resource for tracking down gluten- and dairy-free snacks at Walt Disney World.

30. @saraofarendelle

Sara makes some of the best Disney reels on Instagram. We love watching for the beautiful pastels, pretty dresses, and gotta-have Disney accessories that she’s always wearing. In just a few short seconds, her Instagram reels will take you all over the Disney Parks. And her account offers up more than just Disney fashion; she’s got plenty of tips and tricks for visiting Disney World.

31. @lakebuenavisitors

Lake Buena Visitors has some of the best Disney content online. In fact, it’s one of our favorite YouTube channels—definitely worth subscribing to for vlogs and live streams! But their Instagram game is on point too. Be sure to give them a follow for excellent coverage of Walt Disney World.

32. @themeparkreview

Do you love watching POV roller coaster videos? Chances are, you’ve seen some from Theme Park Review. They’re the definitive source for roller coaster footage (and that iconic “Whee!” that accompanies each video). While they cover a wide range of parks and rides of all thrill levels, the creators have a soft spot for Disney and include plenty of great Disney POV ride footage in their Instagram feed.

33. @theshayspence

Shay is a food journalist living in Key West. And while he travels across the globe in search of good food, one of his favorite spots continues to be Walt Disney World. For recipes, food and drink reviews, and a healthy dose of Disney food coverage, give him a follow.

34. @kermitthefrog

It’s not easy being green. Outside of the classic Disney IP, Disney is famous for owning Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel—but so many people forget that Disney also has the rights to the Muppets, some of the best IP out there. While you’re at the parks, it’s totally possible to have a Muppet-packed day at Walt Disney World, but in between trips, Kermit’s Instagram account will have to suffice.

Follow the Best Disney Instagram Accounts for Magic at Home

Going to Walt Disney World and Disney Parks and Resorts across the globe is an experience like no other. But we can’t always be at Disney World. Following some of these Disney Instagrams is an easy way to stay connected to the Happiest, Most Magical Places on Earth.

Boom baby! Timothy Moore is excited to serve as a WDW Magazine contributor and resident Disney Renaissance expert. When he's not drinking around the world at EPCOT or gobbling down Mickey Waffles for breakfast, he can usually be found with his partner hiking and kayaking the great outdoors, putting off writing his novel by playing Nintendo Switch, or telling his dogs Goomba and Blooper that they're the best boys in the world ad nauseam (because they are).
