Seven Days of Instagrammable Gold

From breathtaking vistas and delectable dining photos to toothless smiles and fabulous fashion poses, the possibilities on Instagram are endless. But how do you make your posts really pop? What you need is Instagram gold (think cute cats in sailor hats). It’s fun, quirky, and your followers are gonna love it. Here in Kissimmee, the theme parks, entertainment, festivals, and events are all filled with Instagram-worthy moments and timeline must-have photos.

It would be easy to send you out exploring to find those Insta-gems on your own, but we’ve done the research and found the fine photo-ops your friends will adore. So strap in, because we’re about to take you on a seven-day tour that’ll have your Instagram exploding with likes, comments, and heart emojis galore.

Day One – Become an Insta-Icon

Kick off your Insta-journey at ICON Park. Snap your best selfie with a sea of aquatic animals behind, above, and all around you in the 360-degree ocean tunnel at SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, home to over 5,000 creatures including colorful fish, seahorses, and so much more. You’re bound to capture something to share when you work the shutter from the 400-foot-tall Ferris wheel. Strike a pose with a life-size wax Wonder Woman at Madame Tussauds Orlando. Or perhaps get a quick shot of the illuminated Orlando StarFlyer, the world’s tallest swing ride. What a way to round out the day!

Day Two – A Bird’s Eye View

Stunning landscape photos are what Instagram was made for, and capturing that sprawling beauty becomes much easier when you’re floating along the skyline in a hot air balloon. Maverick Balloon Adventures will give you the chance to capture those beautiful Central Florida vista shots that’ll definitely show up in your “most-liked” at the end of the year. Just remember to hang on tight to your phone or camera and take in every moment!

Day Three – Universally-Loved Snaps

You could fill an entire Instagram feed with iconic shots from the incredible Universal Orlando ResortTM. Start by striking a pose with the family in front of the Universal Globe to show your followers that you’re about to spend an amazing day filled with theme park fun. From there, step inside and take in the Insta-goodness that’s all around you!

Pop on your photographer’s (or wizard’s) hat and head to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ - Diagon Alley™. The Harry Potter fans in your following will be filling up your comments, the architecture buffs will be marveling, and everybody else will think, “Oh wow, cool pic.”

From there, all bets are off––it’s a photo-taking free-for-all. Catch those suspenseful moments right before running into a T-Rex on the Jurassic Park River Adventure™. Get some laughs with that priceless picture after you ride The Incredible Hulk Coaster®. And wait, is that SpongeBob SquarePants™? A selfie is a must!

Day Four – Swamped With Likes

If you’re looking for an upload with a little bite, Gatorland has you covered as host to some of the rarest alligators in the world, from sweet baby crocs to 14-foot behemoths. Imagine getting a photo of you zipping past a pool of gators on the Screamin’ Gator Zipline. One day at Gatorland, and you’ll be smiling as wide as your new scaly friends! And you’ll have the photos to prove your adventurous spirit.

Day Five – Hoops, there it is!

Sports fans LOVE Instagram, especially when it comes to basketball (just ask any of the NBA’s 34.8 million followers!). So, tap and hashtag to the masses during an Orlando Magic game at Amway Center, and fill your feed with pictures and videos of dunks, crossovers, and maybe even a shot of you courtside.

Day Six – Insta-MAGIC

Who’s ready for Walt Disney World® Resort? Insta-magic is all around you here, so have your camera ready. We recommend beginning your Insta-journey through Disney World with a classic photo alongside Mickey Mouse—an iconic way to start your day. Or perhaps a signature castle shot with the picture-perfect Cinderella Castle.

But who are we kidding, Disney is filled with classics. So pop on your Mickey ears and get ready to smile. Snap a shot with the Disney Princesses, document an amazing parade, or capture an Insta-treat with Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake pops. And be sure to stake out a good spot to snap the legendary Happily Ever After fireworks display at the end of the night. With so many amazing moments to capture, make sure your camera or phone has plenty of memory!

Day Seven – Celebrate a Week to Remember

End your week on a high note with a tour through Downtown Celebration, where the Instagrammable moments are as abundant as the shops and boutiques that sprinkle the streets. Swing by Kilwins Chocolates & Ice Cream and scoop up the perfect ice cream cone (after all, everybody loves photos of colorful ice cream cones). Stroll along the gorgeous lakefront, snacking and snapping your way to Instagram glory. Then finally, it’s one last pic of the sunset from the Bohemian Hotel Celebration patio, and you will have done it––the perfect end to a wonderful week of Instagrammable moments in Kissimmee!
