    Re: New Flash Photography Rules for Disneyland

    You haven't seen flash cameras until you've been behind an Asian tour group on POTC. WOW!! I was going bonkers.

    Re: New Flash Photography Rules for Disneyland

    It is really annoying when people seem to think that they are somehow more special than everyone else on a dark ride and start taking pictures. It happened a lot the last time I was at DL, mostly on Pirates.

    This is only halfway related, but I feel the need to rant:

    One thing that especially bothered me was all the people that were taking flash photos of the people trying to enjoy a meal while I was dining at the Blue Bayou. It's bad enough when someone in every other boat shouts some comment about whether you're enjoying your food, but I can generally ignore them. It's when every fourth boat takes a flash photo that it gets to be a bit much. I was ready to take out my camera and start taking pictures of all the people taking pictures of me. I understand that a lot of the people taking pictures probably don't realize how annoying it is, but I have to wonder just how many people think that it would be appropriate to take flash photos of people they don't know dining in a darkened restaurant.

    Re: New Flash Photography Rules for Disneyland

    Quite an interesting list. I usually take photos with flash on dark rides when others aren't around or when it's IASW where most of the boat with non-locals takes photos. But on a lot of other attractions you might not need a flash or one doesn't really have an impact on the overall experience. I'd put my vote for annoying screaming, rants, etc. instead of flash pictures.

    Re: New Flash Photography Rules for Disneyland

    I've actually yelled at people to turn off their flash before, especially this one time when someone in the doom buggy in front of me was taking picture after picture. It's not like the dang things will turn out anyway.

    Thanks for the clarification

    Now, that would be a good idea. Or they could just incorporate the list into the guide maps at the gate, or both. We (here, readers of MiceChat) can just print the list ant take it with us.

    It's fun, especially to try to see how it comes out. While I am still trying to get the hang of my new camera, taking photos of parts of the rides I find enjoyable. I usually try to see what I can do with no flash...sometimes I'll take a flash photo (I kinda have to on my new camera). Yeah it gets to be a pain in the butt when it is flash after flash which is why I try to not use the flash unless I'm alone, or really want the shot, but for anyone who enjoys taking photos getting a good moving ride photo is a fun challenge.
