There are so many reasons why we love Orlando,
and the endless photo ops is just one of them. We all know that nothing is
worse than having such a spectacular time in Orlando that you totally forget to
take any pictures, and since October is National Photographer Appreciation
month, we’re showing a little extra appreciation for those who go the extra
mile to capture the perfect moments, by featuring some of the top spots to snap
a pic on I-Drive
1. An Orlando Giant
Everyone knows about The Wheel
at ICON Park
. Standing at 400 ft tall, this observation Wheel has become a notorious spot to
snap a pic! The Wheel
itself offers guests an 18 minute observation experience, letting its riders
see over the City Beautiful like never before, with photo worthy views of Walt
Disney World, Universal Orlando, a plethora of nature reserves and lakes, and
on a clear day, even the Kennedy Space Center. But aside from offering its guests
an unforgettable ride, it also lights up in various different colors throughout
the year, for everything from holidays and gender reveals, to honorary colors
for events that commemorate a variety of different causes throughout the
The Wheel calls one of Orlando’s favorite
entertainment complexes, ICON Park
, home, so during your visit, be sure to stop by and experience all that this
complex has to offer, hop aboard, and when you return to the ground, snap a
picture in front of the ICONic wheel to look back on for years to come.
2. It’s not really sinking, we swear.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not
houses an extensive collection of weird and unusual relics and rare treasures,
so it only makes sense that the building would be totally bizarre, right?
If you’re ready to brave the weirdest place in
Orlando, lace up your shoes and head into the sinking building that draws the
attention of so many. Upon entering, you’ll be oddly pleased by an amazing
variety of exhibits, artifacts, and displays throughout 16 different galleries
that pay tribute to the odd, bizarre, and unbelievable. But, before you go,
don’t forget to snap a picture in front of Ripley’s Believe It or Not, so you
can always look back on the moment that you learned that the truth is indeed
stranger than fiction.
3. A 360 degree view of the deep blue sea
You can leave your waterproof phone case at
home, because you can dive deep into the wonders of the ocean like never
before, without ever having to get wet!
SeaLife Orlando Aquarium
offers guests the chance to come face-to-fin with sharks, stingrays, sea
turtles, jelly fish, and so many other magnificent sea animals. You’ll surely be
taking pictures throughout your entire visit, because the world of glittering
scales, humongous tentacles, and razor sharp teeth is too beautiful not to take
pictures of. But, a well known spot for an incredible photo is in their 360
degree ocean tunnel.
Strike a pose as unbelievable sea creatures
swim around you so you can always look back and remember those fish friends you
made in the heart of Orlando, and of course, to show off on your Instagram.
4. Universally recognized
Everyone loves a trip to Universal Orlando,
and as you make your way across City Walk to the entrance of the park, you’ll
see the Universal Globe
, which fittingly, is known worldwide.
The globe sits just outside of the park,
making it a perfect photo to snap before you enter Universal Studios
, where you’ll without doubt be so engulfed by your favorite movie and tv show
worlds, that you’ll most likely totally forget to snap more pics! Universal
Studios is packed with interactive experiences, letting guests test themselves
like never before; so strap in and don’t worry about not getting a good picture
during your visit, because you’ll already have a picture with the well known
Universal Globe to look back on.
5. The Sky Tower
If you’ve been to SeaWorld Orlando
, ever, you have seen the huge 400 ft Sky Tower; it's been there since the
beloved park opened back in 1974. Today, it adds a dose of retro-cool to your
day's adventure, and serves as an additional family attraction at the park.
That’s right. This awesome spot to snap a pic also doubles as a ride that lets
you get a seabird eye view of Orlando during a leisurely capsule ride that lets
you take a load off as you plot the rest of your day at SeaWord Orlando
. Please note: The Sky Tower at SeaWorld Orlando is temporarily closed, but will
reopen soon! But don’t worry, you can still snap a picture in front of this
popular, photo worthy landmark!
