  • What's Everyone's Take On Taking Photographs of Celebs In Disneyland?

    If I saw a celeb, TV or screen, local or reality star, I'd snap a few photos, not just one. It's a memory for me and I don't want to treat them like an "attraction" but they are in one of the most photographed areas of the world. Cameras are everywhere, I hope they wouldn't mind me taking a few shots... but then again, me plus the next person and the next 50 people, well, that's alot of fotos.

    What do you all think/feel about this celeb photo issue inside Disneyland?

    My feelings are that they are there to enjoy the park like everyone else... and to give them some private time. So, I'm one of those that would have to vote, don't take the pic. Just know you saw them and enjoy the moment.

    It's like you said..."[you], the next person, and the next 50" and so on...

      If it's like a concert at Disneyland for say, celebrities like Aly and AJ, of course I would snap photos. They're asking for it.

      But if a celebrity was going to Disneyland for with family or friends, I would try my best not to take a photo. Because I believe they are just regular people who want to enjoy the park like everyone else, like what AlohaStitch said.

      We're always having fun in the Fun and Games Lounge. Care to visit us?

        Do I walk up and ask for a photo, no. Do I keep my distance and shoot a couple of frames for my personal album, yes. Do I try and get a shot of their family, no. Do I zoom in and take just the "star" with something to show where I saw them at, yes. The stars as people have their right to a moment in public without people in their faces for photos. The stars as "stars" also have to remember without these people they would not be stars. IMHO

          I have to disagree. They knew what they would get by taking the role of a Celebrity. Snap em all you want its a free country. If they cared as much they would rent the park out to themselves. lol

            If they're there on "business" then by all means ask them politely if they wouldn't mind a photo. But if they are there as a paying guest, then leave them the heck alone to enjoy their time out. Why do people go to DL? To enjoy a bit of escapism, let them escape too. They are people too you know.

              I'm going to have to go with definitely don't take the picture. You'll attract the paparazzi, which disneyland has definitely had a problem with!

              David Beckham was in the park not too long ago, and there were cameramen (non-disney) dogging his every move. Even going so far as to climb through planters and run over children, strollers, and generally create mayhem in crowded areas of the park. They stormed through many a show, almost ran down one of the Jazz musicians in NOS.

              Don't take the picture!!

                Do you really have such an interest in a person who isn't a member of your own family that you need to take their picture? I mean really, what's the point? Can't you find enough photos of celebrities in the Enquirer to satisfy your need to have their image close at hand?

                Sorry...I just don't understand the need to take photos of "celebrities."

                  I say if you can do it discreetely without interrupting their day, take the shot...especially if you have a telephoto lens and are not obstucting the walkway, etc. I think the irritation for celebs is that people will constantly interrupt them with autograph requests, etc. I think they realize that if they go to a public place like the DLR that 40 shots of them will be on the internet by the time they get home and they would exect that. If they go to Disneyland in spite of this, most of them wouldn't care.

                    Hehe, considering the glut of inane photos of everything from the bathrooms, sheds, and pieces of trash, you'd think there'd be more support for "Yes! take the picture!" on here.
                    My take, pics from somewhere discretely across the way, if you see the celebrity, go for it. Don't bother them or climb in planters or up trees to get your shot. It's crass.

                      Personally, I would ask If I could take the picture with them. Come on! They are in an industry that puts them in the limelight. It's because of US that they are popular and in the celebrity status - so throw us a bone and pose in a quick little snapshot with us. It's how you KEEP fans, you know.

                      I remember what William Holden said in an episode of "I Love Lucy" - while it was scripted, it made so much sense. The waiter told Mr. Holden that he'd move him to another table because Lucy (and Ethel) were gawking at him while he tried to order/eat. He said, "Don't worry about it - it's when they STOP looking - that's when I'll worry."

                          Totally agree with Disneyland Daddy.
                          It's when the public stops caring about celebs is when they end up on Dancing with the Stars or the Surreal Life.
                          Come on a celeb is a terrible thing to waste.

                            By the way - my wife and I were at the park on March 2 for our 5th Anniversary.

                            When we were leaving, we saw Patrick Labrateaux (sp?). He played Andy Garvey on "Little House on the Prairie" and Lt. Bud Roberts on "JAG".

                            He was there with his wife and kids - pushing a stroller by the tram loading area - taking the walk path back to the structure.

                            My wife and I wanted to snap a shot with him, but time was too late by the time we found the camera.

                              Knowing they are there to enjoy the park.. I would take the picture but at distant giving them space.

                              (hope this make sense)
