Orlando’s Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure Best Photo Spots

If you’re anything like this girl, then if you didn’t photograph it, it didn’t happen! Whenever I go just about anywhere, I’m scouting the top photo spots so I can snap the best Instagram photos and of course, spending the day at Universal Studios Orlando and Islands of Adventure no different.  Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite spots to snap the best photos in the parks, so you don’t have to search for them yourself!  

Let’s start with the obvious one! The Universal Globe.  If you enter the park on the Universal Studios side opposed to the Islands of Adventure side, then you’ll see the Globe as you walk in.  Now there’s usually a line here depending on the time of day, so I recommend heading to the park early! Be sure to wait for that perfect moment when the words “UNIVERSAL” are right above you and snap away!

From the moment I found out I was a wizard from the house of Ravenclaw, I made it my mission to snap a photo at every perfect spot between Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade and of course that starts with a photo of the Gringott’s Dragon at the Wizarding World of harry Potter’s Diagon Alley.

No trip to Universal is complete without a photo of this iconic dragon as it breathes fire into the air – day or night this shot is sure to be an iconic one! A few other spots I think are perfect for any wizard’s next Instagram post are Hogwarts Express, Hogwarts Castle, The Butterbeer Truck and of course the entrance to The Three Broomsticks!

If you’re into colorful photos and happy vibes, then I would highly suggest taking some photos amongst the Truffla Trees in Suess Land, in front of Krusty’s head (the entrance to The Simpson Ride) or even in Toon Lagoon under one of the many speech bubbles! (My personal favorite is “I feel like there is a cloud over my head”.)

There’s plenty of Instagrammable spots between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and it is impossible to list them all, but I just had to share a few of my favorites! Tag us in your photos and be sure to leave a comment below of the top spots on your list!
