    Am I able to record on Disney world rides with my GoPro attached to my chest?

    Hi there Tuyet trinh and welcome to planDisney!

    From the sounds of it, you're the kind of person who doesn't shy away from all the thrills at Walt Disney World Resort, and being able to capture rides and attractions safely is something that I think is great for those who might not be able to experience them in person. I'm currently making my way around the Theme Parks to check in with the Cast Members in Ride Operator roles about your question to see what they have to say about the current policies in place:

    • You'll be happy to hear that across the vast majority of attractions, the Cast Members let me know that you should be able to safely ride with a wearable camera as long as they can confirm whether it is securely fastened and attached to your chest.
    • Fellow planDisney Panelist Amy confirmed a change to attractions like Space Mountain this year with updated signage that currently reads: "Hand-held or loose articles, including cell phones and cameras, are not permitted while riding." The Cast Members confirmed that there are certain straps that guests cannot wear depending on the shape of each ride vehicle and their safety restraints, so it's always best to check with them as you enter the queue for any ride or attraction as to whether it will be permissible.
    • Keep in mind that the posted Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules are subject to change without prior notice, and that it may be at the discretion of the Cast Members or their management to decide whether it would be safe to record on any particular ride or attraction by the time of your visit. 
    It's also important to remember that if you're instructed to turn off your camera or stop recording at any time, the Cast Members and their leaders will always wait and ensure that you do - I've personally observed this strictly enforced at various attractions at the international Disney Destinations like Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disney Resort! I hope that you manage to get a lot of great footage of your time here at Walt Disney World Resort that you'll be able to relive and share - in the meantime, don't hesitate to stop by planDisney again for any other tips or advice before you head over here!

    Here's to capturing all of the thrills on your next Disney adventure!
