Did you know that Orlando is one of the most photographed destinations in the world? Currently, the City Beautiful is sitting just shy of 18 million Instagram hashtags, not counting the hundreds more that include the many attractions, like ICON Park in Orlando, where the social-media savvy go to liven up their story.
In the age of “pics or it didn’t happen,” you haven’t really been to Orlando if you haven’t snapped the iconic shots that capture the true O-Town experience. But if you’re not here to pay the big bucks to pose with overhyped purple walls in overpriced rodent ears, no sweat. ICON Park has even more memorable photo ops at a fraction of the cost. So, get those phones in selfie mode for the lowdown on the can’t-miss picture spots at ICON Park.
ICON Park Courtyard
Whoever said “the best things in life are free” must have dropped by ICON Park to take the zero-cost selfie of the century. Throw your hands in hair and smile for the camera in front of one of Orlando’s tallest, and by far most photogenic attractions – The Wheel. We’ve staked out the perfect Selfie Spot on the courtyard lawn, so all you’ll need is your phone and a winning smile! Hot Tip: Want to give your Gram a “glow up?” Visit ICON Park a night and snap your pics as The Wheel comes alive in one of its many light shows.
Of course, The Wheel isn’t just a great backdrop. It’s also the elevator to the highest altitude selfie spot in town. Show your pearly whites from 400 feet above International Drive aboard the highest observation wheel on the east coast. The sky-high lighting will have you looking on fleek from virtually every angle. For added cred, try catch some of your other favorite Orlando hangouts in the background.
