Okay... I'm literally scared to post this because of the repercussions, but I have to admit. I didn't know it was super taboo to use your flash on rides and have maybe done it once or twice. Sooooooo, why exactly is it so bad to do it? Is it like museum status where it ruins the colors or something. Sorry blonde question I know. Lol

It ruins the experience for other guests. I have been on POTC where it felt like a strobe light at a disco. At least I remembered how to do the hustle. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #93 8:33PM
Great minds think alike! :) - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #332 8:37PM
You've all done the hustle in POTC? - phillip...  1393.0 #140 8:39PM
Oh we found the new planking pic! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  361.5 #689 9:06PM
I agree that it ruins the experience and the view especially on POTC. Just turn the flash off people. - MikeyMouse  155.2 #2734 8:47AM
Good to know! I didn't realize how taboo it was until I joined mw and noticed how many people complianed about that being a problem. I'm glad I know now so I don't ruin other people's experience. :) - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:36PM
I didn't know either till I started hanging out around here. And I believe I heard it first from MSG - phillip...  1393.0 #140 8:48PM
Another public service MW offers! Perspective! - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #240 11:22PM
They even tell you several times (both live and Pre-recorded) when you are seated in the boat on POTC that there are no flash pictures. We often mimic the recording with our pirate voices, "...and please, no flash pictures! Now off with ya!" lol - RadioMaverick  1284.4 #150 4:50AM
How could someone not know this or understand why? Every attraction you go to you are generally reminded more than once not use flash photography. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1112 12:02PM
@NNKA - I think she knew she wasn't supposed to, she just wanted to know the specific reason (i.e. similar to preserving an art piece, or simply being courteous to others) - Alicewhoareyou  2739.3 #55 12:04PM
@alicewhoareyou. You would be correct. I knew they told you not to on most rides, but thought it had something to do with the actual ride and possibly damaging it, not people eyeballs. ;) - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 12:16PM
It is so you don't catch the people making out on the rides! Silly!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Deltachiq  1244.3 #154 8:51PM
To me, it ruins my experience on an attraction when there's a flash going off. - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #332 8:32PM
If you need your flash, it's a dark ride. Dark rides are dark for reasons. Besides, there's that annoying spot burned into the retinas of those around you who are unfortunate enough to be subjected to your flash. - susieQzee  555.8 #404 8:35PM
I can't say for the official rules but for me personally since a lot of the rides are dark it really hurts my eyes and can cause some people health issues. Its just common curtsy to just go without the flash. =) Thanks for being honest. - tiggertwin  332.9 #790 8:44PM
Thank you for your honest yet respectful response. Like I said, I have only done it once or twice, but it's so enlightening to know that I was potentially ruIning others experience. Thank you! - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:53AM
It Also Deteriorates The Animatronics. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #69 8:51PM
I have heard them come on the loud speaker on potc to tell people to not use flash - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  361.5 #689 9:08PM
We should learn to say it another languages for them! Lol! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  361.5 #689 9:14PM
Like Mike said, it ruins the experience and also, its courteous for others who are trying to experience the attraction also. I've been blinded on POTC when someone tried to turn around in the front row to take a picture of something that had already past and used their camera's flash. Don't believe me, ask SueBayou - BaseballMickey  8087.0 #13 9:15PM
I can't believe that people would have to ask this question...to me it's a no-brainer. People who use a flash when there are others on the attraction are terribly selfish and insensitive. - msdizmaui  859.6 #236 10:14PM
Uhhhhhhhh..... Thank you.... I never thought of myself as an insensitive and selfish person, but thanks for the insight. - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:40AM
It's easy . If they wanted flash they would of added a strobe light! - Hendizl  2874.6 #52 10:54PM

I would like to see scottermike gettin down with his bad self on that ride haha - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:58AM
Same could be said about phone lights on dark attractions. It's weird to travel around madam leota with a glowing thing that the "spirits" aren't controlling. I try hard not to use my phone unless we are stuck for awhile - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 11:11PM
Most people know to turn off their light up devices too like phones or neck lanyards or ears. I was ready to scream on the day when they gave the light up ears away for fantasmic, so many people would not turn them off. You just need to treat your fellow attraction riders with the same respect you want and hopefully you can see what could bother others. - secretagentangel  8515.6 #11 11:17PM
Mine would turn off on dark attractions automatically - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 11:22PM
But aren't the light up ears for GWTS? We Never turn our ears off for Fantasmic because we like the glow! - hueydeweyandlouie  73.6 #4232 11:45PM
The Glow Ears do automatically turn off in attractions, but are also turned on at certain points of the attraction. Example: POTC during the canons exchange in fire. - RadioMaverick  1284.4 #150 4:56AM
Cool I didn't know the ears did that! - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:59AM
The flash activates the animatronics lust for human flesh. - TedW  328.1 #817 11:54PM
Ha! I like you. - bluefairy  643.8 #345 11:56PM
Ha ha! Simpsons fan? - JustCantWait  1148.5 #173 12:25PM
There has been a time or two when I've gently reminded others that their flash photography was disrupting the experience for others around them. That being said, once, years ago, on the Haunted Mansion someone was a bit over kill with the flash when the ride suddenly stopped when we were going through Madam Leota's seance room. I couldn't help but shout out, "Oooooo you broke the ride because you were using the flash!" Everyone in the room started chuckling, the ride continued, and there were no more flashes. 😊 - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1112 4:40AM
Many people don't realize that more often than not, the flash ruins the photo as well. You really don't need a flash anyway. - RadioMaverick  1284.4 #150 5:00AM
More often than not, the flash ruins the photo as well. And you'll find that you really don't need a flash for a great photo. - RadioMaverick  1284.4 #150 5:06AM
Very true. At first when I didn't realize how taboo it was I used my flash like twice on TLMM and all of my pictures turned out crappy. I never use flash now. Because of picture quality and the enjoyment of other guests. - BellesLibrary  421.9 #569 8:44AM
I would hate to think you would fear to ask. I'm glad you know now, I didn't really know how big of a deal it was until MW as well lol I guess I didn't notice too much - MarshaMouse  5036.3 #28 12:21PM
When people use flash on dark rides especially on POTC I just want to throw their phone or camera in the water. So annoying when suddenly there is a bright light. - PrincessAuroraMomma  600.6 #375 8:49PM
It's very distracting for everyone else wanting to enjoy the attraction and it kills the special effects. - Witchie77  406.1 #596 8:51PM
I have had that happen to me to when going on the ride and when they would not stop someone from the ride asked whoever it was to quit. They do have cameras on the ride and people watching - alphathedog4  154.3 #2749 8:59PM
I alway want to take the camera and throw it lol - lisaw  205.6 #2009 9:02PM
I got one worse then flash on potc... On our anniversary we rode behind some inconsiderate fools chomping on sour cream and cheddar ruffles.. The smell people the smell!! And I happen to love those chips.. My husband finally checked the dude and his girl but it ruined my favorite ride - nurseclick  66.0 #4443 9:18PM
I'm sure you have experienced temporary blindness as a result of a bright light being shined in your eyes (such as a flash). It interferes with the ability of others to enjoy the attraction but also, if you had to be evacuated from a dark ride with temporary blindness, that's a safety issue. - MoonWillow  381.3 #636 9:29PM
We experienced this a lot today. Darn rookies. And yes it hurts they eyes and distracts from the ride. - TangledsDad  275.5 #1189 10:00PM
I yell at people in a deep voice when they use flash to startle them 😊 effective, /and/ entertaining. πŸ˜ƒ - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #229 11:09PM
What's the best/funniest/snarkiest thing to yell at flashers? - Westcoast  197.8 #2105 11:27PM
FOOLISH MORTALS! Your flash photography burned my eyes. Your camera's path now lies past the gates of DOOM - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #229 11:38PM
Snarkiest?And yelling? MWers are extremely polite. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.8 #48 11:45PM
We rode Space Mountain once with a guy that kept taking pictures of himself. Worst ride ever! - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #513 11:50PM
I think the only bordering on acceptable instance is if the ride is actually stopped, like for a walk off. I once rode with a fellow mw'er who will remain nameless, and she took several flash pictures on haunted during the NBC overlay. Despite my telling her to stop, and the cm on the loudspeaker doing so as well, she kept doing it. I was so embarrassed. 😳 - bluefairy  643.8 #345 11:56PM
On my last trip I was with a family member who took a photo on a dark ride and the flash went off. I kinda freaked out on her. I was mortified. Thank MW! 😊 - MousekaNinja  422.4 #567 3:22AM
Sometimes people just make a mistake, like forgetting to turn off the automatic flash, it's the deliberate repeat offenders that need a talking to! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #345 5:36AM
Gosh, I have an old home video from 2006 of a Disneyland trip, and I watch it all the time! Well Shelby and I used to crack up about this, we recorded haunted mansion NBC, and some kids a couple doom biggies ahead of us kept taking flash photos. The ride actually stopped, and they stopped the music and a lady in a nasally voice came on a loud speaker and said 'no flash please, no flash.' And it just went on after! Lol so it's always bugged me but now I chuckle when I hear that still :) - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1405.6 #137 3:32AM
They even tell you several times (both live and Pre-recorded) when you are seated in the boat on POTC that there are no flash pictures. We often mimic the recording with our pirate voices, "...and please, no flash pictures! Now off with ya!" lol - RadioMaverick  1284.4 #150 4:58AM
I was just thinking that. You are told by the recordings on the rides. Once after just being seated on the Little Mermaid ride, I was checking my camera. The CM immediately said "No flash pictures under the sea." - Lelundrial  820.3 #249 7:45AM
I have spoken to City Hall numerous times and glad to see the CM's saying something on TLM since there is no recording. My husband always says very loudly as we load "No flash photography". LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.8 #48 9:03AM
I think on HM if you take flash photography the ride stops. It has happened to me a few times when there's other people who are taking flash photography. I get annoyed and yell at them especially this one time when I had to use the restroom & that person wouldn't stop πŸ˜‚ - KladiaDisneyNinja  292.3 #1040 9:52AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.8 #48 11:28AM
The worst case of this I have ever seen was on Soarin. Someone was taking flash pictures from start to finish. That seats a whole lot of people. Kinda ruined for every one of them. I hope no one was a first timer. - Tom  13549.4 #5 11:34AM
Oooh I saw this happen too! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3486.8 #48 12:47PM
I was on Pirates in front of a couple who took tons of flash pictures the entire ride and it was totally distracting and annoying. Also, people need to turn off their Glow with the Show ears, firework ears, giant flashing Mickey head necklaces, etc. on dark rides!!! - JustCantWait  1148.5 #173 12:22PM
I said this last night too and then was reminded that the GWTS ears are supposed to now go off by themselves in dark rides, they did not do that in the beginning. So hopefully at least those won't be on during the ride too.:) - secretagentangel  8515.6 #11 12:39PM
I was on POTC as well when this person in the front took pictures of basically everything he saw. Even though I have been on this ride a lot of times before, it really just ruined the experience. - joyful_belle131  59.4 #4643 12:55PM
Yes it was from mw that I learned this as well. So now I do not take my shirt off on attractions 😁 - Villescas8  607.0 #369 1:27PM
I did it once a few years ago on HM. Then a cm came on the loudspeaker to tell me knock it off. Never did it again 😜 - ima-pirateswife  846.2 #241 1:42PM
So, if you're stopped for more than a few minutes, is that an exception to the rule? We were stuck on HM for a short time and I broke the rule and took a great picture of the bride's dress and a baby buggy that I'd never noticed before. I didn't post it on here for fear of being blacklisted!! - nerdgirl  86.0 #3974 1:54PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  8515.6 #11 9:06PM

Earn 1000 Credits for staying at MouseWait Platinum Partner Hotels! Each night that you stay at the Hojo Anaheim 714-776-6120 or the brand new Courtyard Marriott Theme Park Entrance Hotel 714-254-1442 you will earn 1000 Credits! Just send an email to [email protected] after your stay with your confirmation number and check in date, and we will add the Credits to your account!

I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  296.3 #1011 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  159.7 #2662 3:57PM
