    Angry No Flash Photography, Please

    Ok, I was just at the park today, and there were people taking flash pictures in Small World like crazy. Finally,my mom and I (accidentally in unison) pointed that out to the people behind us. I have noticed this is becoming a worse and worse problem, and the CMs have been doing fewer announcements about it. Am I the only person who actually cares about the rules??

    P.S. Why is that a requirement? Is it something to do with the animatronics (a la The Simpsons in Itchy& ScratchyLand)? Or is it more of a courtesy thing? II don't care either way just curious...I'd follow the rules either way..

    P.P.S Also, the guy behind me decided to narrate the entire ride (yes, narrate It's A Small World) and proceeded to give misinformation (China is not Japan) and telling everyone what he thought of the entire ride compared to the last time he was on it ("I don't remember animals being in this part" "Koalas aren't purple and their heads don't turn that way") This is a good explanation as to why I am not a "people" person.

    no you're not the only one. Flash photography bothers me more than I can say. I also notice the CM's do nothing to stop it. I do hear the announcements saying no flash photography, but I have a feeling most people are to high on pixie dust and so self absorbed that they do not listen.......JMO

    I don't think CMs can do much more than those announcements to not use flash. I mean what are they gonna do, stop the ride and remove the person doing the flash pics?

    Re: No Flash Photography, Please

    I was at a Beth Moore conference...during a very solumn, special time...a few were flashing pics. Beth asked the people herself if they would please stop...this woman was praying for people for goodness sake..the room was hushed...and do you know..the minute she made that request..flashes started going off all over the place!!!
    I absolutely was astounded and felt absolute outrage at their rudeness!

    I also hate flash photos on rides ,last week my wife and I were on IASW and the lady in front of us kept taking flash photos and to make it worse she had bad B/O which would become stronger as she raised her arm to snap a photo.

    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    I once took my old 10 pound VHS camcorder and blogeoned the daylights out of two old nuns in front of me in Pirates for their incessant flashing, only to find out it was just the lightning storm over that skeleton driving that ship. I said i was sorry.

    There are actually several reasons flash photography is not permitted inside Disneyland attractions. But, basically, Disney artists want to control the lighting that guests see in the show, and guests, themselves, want to see the lighting that Disney artists use in the show. Flashes and other illumination are not only distracting, but they can destroy certain illusions.

    Additionally, certain people are sensitive to stroboscopic light, so there is a health and safety factor, as well.

    In instances where another guest is using a light, it's good to politely ask him or her if he or she would not mind refraining from using the light, and, if he or she refuses, just report the guest to the host or hostess at the exit when you return to the boarding area. The host and hostess will, then, speak to the guest.

    It is also extremely important that if a guest is using a LASER pointer that you make an effort to report the device to a host or hostess for the safety of everyone.
