A Guide To Winter Wonderland: Instagram Locations

We all know Winter Wonderland is the ultimate location for getting that festive Instagram and whether it is a post for your stories or your grid, we’ve got you covered.

The jury is out and the results are in from our poll on insta stories. We asked you guys to vote on your fave location for a range of snaps. Keep reading for the results…

2,689 of you took part and all the winning locations won by landslide, highlighting the most iconic spots around the park. So without further a do, here’s your guide to the perfect WW insta’s.

First Instagram Story When You Arrive

In 3rd place: The Bavarian Village Sign. A classic of course as we know for some of you, this is all you come for but what better time to explore more areas as we return this season!

2nd place: Video pan of everything. Entering the park is a feast for the eyes as your hit with the dazzling lights so it’s only natural to show it off on the gram.

And in 1st place: The entrance sign! DUH! Show everyone you’re in the ‘must do’ event of the year!

The Ultimate Selfie Spot

3rd place: with a giant teddy won by bae. Have you completed the Winter Wonderland date if your partner hasn’t won you a teddy?

2nd place: with a Magical Ice Kingdom ice sculpture. This attraction is too impressive to not document on socials, life size sculptures made from ice to pose with for the gram.

1st place: under the Luminaires, this is not the only time this has been voted for as a location favourite. It is undeniable that the beautifully lit up arches act as the perfect picture backdrop. ICONIC.

Cheers Boomerang

3rd place: beer boomerang in the Bavarian Village, obvs. Must get shot on first attempt as it’s likely sticky beer will overflow upon cheers of the massive glasses, get practicing now with a pint down the pub.

2nd place: with an icy cocktail in Bar Ice. We’re not surprised this was a favourite as it is getting booked up so quickly. If you want your chance to get a boomerang in an ice glass, sat on ice, in a bar made of ice, then book now before you miss out!

1st place: in front of the fire pit. Cosy up with friends to cheers your mulled wine over the fire, no better location for that festive tipple shot.

Cute Couple Picture

3rd place: snuggled up in Thor’s Tipi, an excuse to get close as you cuddle for warmth by the fire. No doubt that orange glow from the flame gives great photo lighting!

2nd place: on the ice rink, hold hands as you glide gracefully (or slip like Bambi) for the perfect festive action shot.

1st place: surprise surprise, under the Luminaires! As previously mentioned, an iconic moment in the park. A must have picture to be posting on the gram.

And finally, we asked for your ultimate picture location, a couple mentioned were Angels Christmas Market and a photo with a giant sausage… I think you people meant the technical term – bratwurst 😉 But we were overwhelmed with one particular answer…ANYWHERE! Winter Wonderland is the perfect backdrop, no matter where abouts you are, festive beauty is all around.

We can’t wait to see all your pictures this year, it will be such a joy to see Winter Wonderland lighting up the feed after a year off. Make sure you tag us! #hydeparkwinterwonderland
