The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye

What better place to watch the eclipse today than the top of the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye! We even timed it perfectly!

The Orlando Eye is an observation wheel near Orlando, Florida, US. It is 400 ft tall! It has been open since April, 2015. Since July 2016, it has been known as Coca-Cola Orlando Eye.

It was not at all busy so we went straight to the front of the queue and had our picture taken in front of the green screen before going straight outside to wait for our capsule.

We asked the nice lady if we could go in a red capsule and as there was no queue, much to the children’s delight, this was no problem.

We boarded and quickly explored our surroundings. The capsule was Coca-cola themed with a seat shaped like a coke bottle lid and a coke cool box in the corner. The children opened it and were excited to find it was full of ice and cans of coke!

There were also two mounted ipads that told us what we were looking at. You could zoom in on places and read about them. We also managed to watch the eclipse live on youtube.

The views in every direction were amazing and changed as you got higher up. The kids had great fun spotting all the places we have been such as Epcot and Sleuths and they got very excited when they realised they could see their favourite ride at Islands of adventure, The Hulk!

We managed to time it so that when we got to the very top of the Orlando Eye the moon was most over the sun and discovered we could look at it using our phone cameras.

We drank coke, awed at the view and got to see the eclipse, what an opportunity! We really loved this adventure, it was more fun than we imagined it would be and even without the added bonus of the eclipse it was amazing. We could see for miles and spot all our favourite places.

When we got off we were shown our green screen photos, magically transformed into a book of great pictures available to us for $45. We then went through to the gift shop with an assortment of souvenirs on offer.

Taking a child with an ASD on the Coca-cola Orlando Eye?

Service animals are permitted.

We went in the middle of the day on a weekday and it was not at all busy with no queue.

There are ipads to use.

The red capsules have ice boxes with complimentary coke products.

The capsules are quiet. There is music but it is not too loud.

My son had a great time, he loved it!

The Coca-cola Orlando Eye is located at I-Drive 360 on International Drive. The website is: https://www.officialorlandoeye.com

We were guests at The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye but all opinions are our own.
