    Dark Ride Photography Rules

    As long as you’re not using a flash, is one permitted to take pictures on rides like Pirates or Peter Pan? Thanks in advance.

    In my case I was asking because I created a Scavenger Hunt for today and most of my clues involve taking pictures.

    On a ride opened in ‘67
    Online there is great sorrow
    Take a picture of the scene
    That will be gone as of tomorrow

    I seriously don't understand taking ride pictures or footage. All is available in crips definition on YouTube. Just sit down and enjoy!
    Someone has to take that photo and video, and as technology advances you get better and better quality captures. As long as they don't disrupt the experience for other guests i don't mind anyone else capturing photo or video.

    The brightness by default is set to auto, but you can un-check that box and lower the brightness so far down you won't even see your screen.
    Good tip.

    I've seen people from other countries, stand up in the boat of POTC, and flash away!

    The only rule I know of is NO flash. Ironically the worse offenders that do this are usually during the Primeval World on DLRR or The Dining Room on Haunted Mansion. It seems about every other time some dim whit uses a flash ruining the ride for rest of the guests.

    LOL yes. Make sure you turn off AF illumination too if your camera has that. AND turn off screen preview too. I take dark ride pics all the time.

    The only time you're not allowed to take photos on rides is when there's restrictive copyright issues involved, and they will absolutely tell you when you can't photograph or video. And flash photography is NEVER allowed inside an attraction.

    Yea of coarse why not...most people dont have any "common sense" now a days. And start flashing away and ruining the experience of the ride.
