wow I like that idea....any of you guys have the pictures uploaded anywhere to show us, it would be something to laugh at on here.

My idea was just spawned from when I watched the old Disney video called "A Day at the Magic Kingdom". I felt like I wanted to have my own Day at the Magic Kingdom (with pictures)..like a whole day devoted to the MK and not take any breaks in between. AND actually go on rides that I normally don't go on, like Dumbo/Aladdin/Barnstormer/Tom Sawyers Island.
I know this is probably your first flight...and it's mine too...ha, ha

Rain upon that planet Earth. And they rain ... and rain ... and rain. The deluge.

Don't forget to photograph the "Disney Details" that Disney is so famous for. Calypso mentioned photographing the hidden Mickeys. That is a lot of fun! Also, try things like still lifes of the little towel animals that mousekeeping makes. One trip my parents photographed every meal they had before they ate it. Not only will it be fun to find the little things, it will vary your trip photos so it won't seem like they're all the same!

That's so funny you should mention the towel animals! I always take pictures of those!!! They make extremely fun ones on the Disney Cruise!! It's fun to look back at those pictures.

my hubby and i always take pics of the towel animals, too!! we basically take pics of anything "special" that cast members at the hotels and restaurants do. we have a bunch of pics of a big heart made out of pieces of confetti that some cast members left on our table at the crystal palace when we were on our honeymoon;)

CheshireStitch,
You've got the same idea as us. We take pictures of moments that move us. Our daughter absolutely loves Figment, so having a picture of her with anything in the "Imagination Institute" in the background brings back fond memories.

One place I always like to go and take pictures is on the top of the Swiss Family Tree house. You can get a good picture of Tomorrowland at night, or Adventureland day or night (night is better).

There are many scenes that are seemingly hidden throughout the parks. I love taking pictures on the porch with rocking chairs on main street. Also, in the gift shops! The backgrounds are so great with detail and interesting things to look at.

I like to take pics of the hotel lobbies. The detail that each of them has is unbelievable. Also some of the popular picture spots just maybe from different angle.

WDW > MK > Liberty Square...
Just outside of Hall of Presidents there's a place with two rocking chairs. My buddy Sockfire took a picture there with his wife on his last trip and for some reason he said, "You have to take a picture there". Well, we did. And now I think it'll be fun to start a tradition of taking a picture there every time we visit.

Speaking of Hall Of Presidents. I got this picture one night and always thought it was cool.

I need to retake it at a later date, with my newer camera. At the time I was taking it with a point and shoot.
