Orlando has a lot to do and see, even outside of the theme parks, and there are many Instagrammable moments across The City Beautiful. In today’s post I’m sharing my top 7 Instagram Worthy Spots in Orlando. I am going to make this a series, as I have more spots to discover. So stay tuned!
Cinderella’s Castle at Magic Kingdom
We can’t talk about beautiful Instagram spots in Orlando without mentioning Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Most people like to take a shot of the castle down Main Street. However, my favorite shot of the castle is actually of the side of the castle. As you cross the bridge into Adventure Land turn right and you get a glorious, unobstructed view of the castle, often lit in the mid day sun. At certain times of the day, there is often a Photo Pass Photographer stationed here as well.
While some may think the Orlando Eye or ICON Orlando has it is known, is an eyesore, it does make a beautiful background for photos, especially at night when it is all lit up. The beauty of this spot is that you can get different angles for photos as its so LARGE!
Historic Downtown Winter Garden
Downtown Winter Garden has probably the best weekend Farmer’s Market in the area. The center of the historic downtown area has a beautiful area with a fountain, porch swings and more. It is always packed on the weekend, so getting a picture requires some patience. But the fountain is studded in mosaic tiles and is a gorgeous backdrop, especially for fashion photos.
The Bubblegum Wall at Epcot
We can’t talk Instagram in Orlando without mentioning the Bubble Gum Wall at Walt Disney World’s Epcot. This fun colored wall is just outside the exits of Spaceship Earth. This popular photo backdrop has it’s own Instagram page, countless pictures in the #bubblegumwall hashtag, and even got Disney’s attention that they have now created merchandise featuring this well loved wall.
Orlando’s Leu Gardens
There are so many amazing photo ops at Leu Garden’s that it is hard to even pick just one. My favorite is this little brick courtyard with this white porch swing. It is surrounded by the cutest white picket fencing and lush greenery. The perfect spot not just for a photo but also to sit and enjoy a moment of reflection.
Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs
The fun textured walls outside of Amorette’s Passtirie at Disney Springs makes a great photo backdrop. Bonus points for the delicious pastries that also have their own Instagram appeal. Sit on the very side wall between Amorette’s and World of Disney for a quieter, less busy spot.
Lake Eola Orlando
And last, but certainly not least, is Lake Eola. Just like Leu Gardens there are too many spots to choose from for beautiful pictures. Lake Eola is probably my favorite spot in all of Orlando. Take a walk around the lake and explore all the great options for a quick pic.
I would love to hear some of your favorite spots in Orlando for the perfect Instagrammable moment, so comment below what yours is so I can go and explore The City Beautiful some more. Stay tuned for Part Two cupcakes!
