Camera Policy

Sporting Events

Non-flash, still cameras, may be used to take pictures of sporting events or events where house lights are illuminated during a performance. Cameras with detachable lenses longer than three (3) inches when extended are prohibited from all Kia Center sporting events. Tripods or other photography equipment may not be used or admitted without building issued media credentials.

iPads and tablets are permitted for Orlando Magic and Orlando Solar Bears games. All other sporting events are subject to change at any time at the show’s discretion.

Concerts and Other Events

Cameras with a detachable lens, lenses longer than three (3) inches, and the use of flash photography are prohibited at all Kia Center events. Call the administration office at 407.440.7000 prior to the event for camera policy updates. Camera policy is subject to change at any time at the show’s discretion. Shows/events reserve the right to approve camera use at any time during and/or before the event and to prohibit the use of any camera that is deemed unacceptable.


In the best interest of guest and staff safety, a search process may be required for select events in order to prevent guests from bringing unauthorized and/or prohibited items into the Kia Center. Guests who refuse to submit to either visual, pat-down or wanded searches shall be refused entry.
