Photography Ideas in Walt Disney World

Taking pictures in Walt Disney World is one of my favorite things to do.  They are a great way to remember the fun that you’ve had on vacation. I have some photos that I like to do on every trip.  I also like to take some pictures in the same place each time we go to see how the kids change over time.

Here’s my list of some fun and unique things that I like to take photos of that help to document my trips:

  • Pics of MagicBands in the box
  • Scanning MagicBands at the turnstile
  • All hands in MagicBands picture
  • Screenshot of the weather
  • Funny text message conversations

Hopefully this list has given you some ideas on capturing some of the more common and not-so-common memories during your next visit to Walt Disney World!  I like to think outside of the box when it comes to documenting our trips.  I’ve done paper scrapbooks, digital scrapbooks and trip videos.  The above gives me some framework to help me organize whatever project I decide to use to document each trip.
