Good morning everyone:-) So i was going through disney vacation pics & i discovered that we ended up taking more scenery pics of disney on our trips than of ourselves...anyone else do that? Lol..this pic is from 2007 (i think..lol) One of my faves. Have a great saturday everyone=)

I took this on the way out. The sky was too beautiful in the background to not take a few pics of it:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:03AM
Yes, until (unfortunately for Mr. I) I discovered Photopass.  LOL!! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 9:06AM
LOL! idk how well that would work. My dad and bf are the types who are like "why should i pay someone to do what i can do myself?" I personally think it would be more convenient and would be worth it (like the dining plan=)) How much is it usually? Do you find it to be really convenient? - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:26AM
Unfortunately for mr. i...haha! - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:47AM
Btw,did you ever see my response to you about taking pics from the california grill? If not,i'll repost here for u - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:48AM
Haha, no I must have missed it! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 10:18AM
The price went up this year, but I like to think its not that expensive when you consider how much the total cost to go to Disney is. I am the picture taker in my fam, so if we didn't do PP, I would never be in any pics or have family ones. :) - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 10:19AM
Oo true..you have to be in pics! Lol..we usually take turns or what we do a lot is ask someone to take a pic of all of us. We usually ask a CM. - mickeynme  177.5 #52 10:35AM
We may just have the CMs take pics with our camera and PP, and then maybe just keep our own this time and not preorder the PP. Still undecided, lol! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 10:40AM
Lol..what i said about taking pics at the california grill roof deck is that i think u need a reservation for there to even go up. Because a lot of people were going up there for the view to take pics and they weren't even dining there,so i don't think the staff was too pleased with that. So now people check in on the 2nd fl and then you get escorted up there in an elevator with a staff member who has a key (card) for the floor. Because the elevators won't take you up there without special access. Sounds complicated,but it's not really.lol. If you can somehow get a reservation at this point for there,then it would work out. But since you're coming from breakfast,maybe you can get a reservation for there with the intention of having dessert or appetizers or sushi (it might be easier to get a reservation at the bar in which case you can watch them make sushi=)) Or maybe try to make the reservation for another day. A lot of people like to just order sushi and drinks or appetizers,etc. i would check and double-check my facts though. I wouldn't want you to miss out on taking pics there. So find out to be sure. I just remember that from 2 years ago - mickeynme  177.5 #52 10:46AM
Plus i don't want you to rearrange your itinerary!! Lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 10:47AM
It's actually not too bad to try the PP with a CM taking some pics for you guys. We do that instead of asking random people because my dad ends up threatening them not to run with our camera!! He tells them if they run,we'll get them!! LOL!! We're nuts!! Most people are normal good people of course,but he always says that. I crack up every time at how nuts we are. He means it though. LOL - mickeynme  177.5 #52 10:51AM
LOL!!! Cracked up at picturing your Dad saying that, hahaha!!! I didn't know you had to have ressies to see the view from Contemporary, bummer!! :( - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 4:30PM
Yes,we're nuts...we have a great sense of humor in my family.lol:-). Double-check about the reservations btw! Im not completely sure! So check check and doublecheck:-) maybe indy knows better than i do about it..i think i'm right but maybe something changed,etc. If not,can you maybe fit another reservation into your itinerary?? Lol..haha:D - mickeynme  177.5 #52 6:32PM
Yes I used to, but the past few years I have started to add the kids to the scenery. It's more exciting and I love to see how they change. - mmddgp  948.8 #7 9:15AM
The scenery pics are beautiful but seeing your loved ones years later in pics are memories that will last a lifetime. I'm sure the ones with your grandkids are your faves:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:35AM
Yes def more scenery than us:) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 9:18AM
I counted way more scenery pics than any of us..the whole time i'm thinking "well we must be here somewhere...." Lol..the castle alone has to be more than 200 pics...lol - mickeynme  177.5 #52 9:29AM
Beautiful pic! I try to take all kinds of photos with my camera while we are at WDW. I try to learn by trial and error. Mostly error but I've taken some cool shots and some bad ones. I think you capture a moment when you snap a picture and at Disney, those moments are special. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 10:31AM
Well said:) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 10:45AM
Agreed. Very well said. We look at the scenery ones and we can remember exactly where it is,when,etc. Those pics are usually the most breathtaking and we stare at them and go ahhhhhh. Those shots make us wish we were there more than the other ones. You make a great point - mickeynme  177.5 #52 10:58AM
Great pic, MnM!!  I'm undecided about the photopass too, Mrs.I.  I was about to buy it and then decided to wait.  Like you, I'm the photographer so I like when I can get in the pic too.  MnM, we do have a lot of pics of scenery, however, most of my pics are of my munchkins.  they complain, but I tell them they will be happy when they're older and can see how cute they were when they were little!  :) - BagGal  340.9 #25 1:10PM
That's right! They may not know it now but they'll understand more when they're older:-) I don't have little ones yet but if I did,I would be taking TONS of pics of them as you do. Can never have too many Disneypics! Lol. I love that one of your two little girls in their princess outfits...so cute! They'll appreciate it when they're older:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 1:48PM
Beautiful! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 1:38PM
Thank you! I think we like the epcot ball more than we do the castle..lol. It's so pretty:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 1:50PM
It's a one of a kind Dismey landmark! Can't pass it without taking a half dozen pix! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 2:43PM
Yes.lol...we definitely take more than a few of it that's for sure..lol:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 6:21PM
Our last few years have been more scenery pix than people pix. And I too am the picture taker. People probably don't believe I ever go to WDW cuz I'm not in any pix. - DizneyGirl  935.8 #8 3:16PM
I love taking scenery pics. Disney is very beautiful. I show non-disney lovers pics of the monorail with a sunset behind it or world-showcase excitedly and they don't think it's beautiful. I mean,of course rome and hawaii are beautiful...but this is disney! Lol...why don't your family members take turns taking pics with you in it and vice versa? Or a CM can take family pics of you guys,etc? - mickeynme  177.5 #52 4:00PM
That way you can be in the pics too:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 4:00PM
This year I had a CM take a few. Only other adult in our crowd is the hubby. Let him touch my camera, LOL! For real he takes pretty crappy pix! - DizneyGirl  935.8 #8 4:44PM
Oooh...in that case..don't give him the camera.haha..maybe you can start training your oldest and by the next trip she'll be all prepped and ready to go! LOL:D - mickeynme  177.5 #52 5:53PM
Gorgeous shot! There is only 3 in my family and I usually take all the pictures. Unless a cm takes our picture, don't have a lot with all 3 of us. - disneycm  701.6 #11 5:38PM
Thank you! Yea,that's true. We always switch and take turns each taking pics with one another and three at a time,four at a time,etc.etc..lol. The CM's are everywhere too so we try to ask them and we also ask our server at the end of our meal..lol. Also,we do one of those professional pics per trip either in front of the epcot ball or the castle. We have a picture-taking system all worked out. Lol=) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 6:01PM
Maybe try some of those ideas? That way you can be in more pics with your family:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 6:04PM
Hope your Saturday is going well. - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 5:55PM
Thank you! Hope you had a good one too:-) - mickeynme  177.5 #52 6:26PM
