  • NO PHOTOS! EVAC stories..?

    I can understand that whilst guests are on working rides flash photography is banned - it annoys others. But why do you supose it is that when a ride breaks down and guests are escourted off and through the works and backstage that some CMs and security get really ansy about people taking photos and videos, even without flash?

    There's a few fascinating videos on youtube and video.google of backstage walks.

    probably because they don't want the backstage "magic" to be revealed to others and they probably don't want their competitors to see all the backstage stuff, how things work, and what new state of the art machines are being used.

          Disney has to care because their compitition is always looking for ways to beat them in the theme park industry. They can never let down their post regardless. Competitors are competitors and are always hungry to learn the secrets of their competitors with hopes to use it against them.

          Disney probably doesn't want to take any risks of their theme park competitors seeing all the stuff backstage and how they operate things.

          I think from that aspect, it is understandable that Disney doesn't let anyone take backstage pictures, because the stuff backstage is their type of "secret formula" that distinguishes Disneyland attractions from the attractions of other theme parks.

            Yes but a lot of these attractions are decades old and the secret's already out.

              There's even some behind-the-scenes footage on TV... Like those Travel Channel specials.

                I've only been evac'd from BTMRR and everyone was taking flash pics (except for me, who didnt have a camera at the time). I didnt see any CMs enforcing a no-photos rule.

                But, yeah, I have to agree. Most of the ride at DL are decades old, the secret's already out.

                  in that case, they probably just don't want people taking pictures of their backstage area, an area not intended to be viewed by most of the public anyway .

                      Well like I said, they did not design their backstage areas for most people to see in the first place :lol:.

                      I think Captain Jack stole my blindfold...

                        Do you guys think that it also might have to do with security issues?

                          some evacs take place backstage... Backstage is backstage.. no photos allowed.

                          evacs like the TTA in WDW are onstage and i taped it..

                            That is a good point!

                            I was just thinking of the "ruin the magic" issue. Just because DL sometimes takes video backstage for documentaries, I'm sure they want it to be on THEIR terms.

                              because the backstage is ugly and looks like any ordinary break room to me. Or worse....It didn't inspire me to take pictures.
