We just went to Walt Disney World again, and here are a few more photo tips for taking great photos at Walt Disney World! Disney World is a challenging place to take photos! There are people everywhere, and it is each to get sweaty and tired!
Taking Great Photos of your Kids at Walt Disney World!
Morning and Evening (Sunset) Light are the best times of day to photograph. I love getting to the park when it opens and letting my son run around while I take photos! The kids are also less tired in the morning!
Get off of Main Street!
You can take the default photo on Main street but just know the sun will be in your eyes and there will be a million people all around you. If you can get to the grassy areas closer to the castle or the bridges on the sides of the castle, you will have some great angles with less people!
The whole reason we come to Disney is to see my son light up when he sees Mickey Mouse or let him have that family bonding time with Daddy that he doesn’t get at home when we all have a million things to do. So, when my son gets super excited is when I really want to capture it, even if the background isn’t perfect and you can’t even tell we are at Disney World!
Ask Cast Members to use your Camera!
I use to be a little nervous about this, and some cast members make jokes or don’t try as hard to get your kid to smile, but I buy some Disney photos and ask them to take photos with my camera too!
I really wanted a photo of my son with his giant mickey stuffed animal or more of him with his Mickey balloon, but it’s a balance of doing things at Disney and taking pictures and not getting too stressed about the photos. I only bring my big camera with me sometimes, so that I can really relax other times! Good luck!
