    Are you allowed to bring your GoPro to Disneyland?

    Hey there, Greyson!

    From one videographer to another, welcome to planDisney! When I can't personally visit the Parks, one of my favorite pastimes is to watch videos that others have filmed from the Disneyland Resort and live vicariously through them. However, when I do take my family to the Parks, I love documenting the visit through video. I think a GoPro is a perfect camera to use for a day in the Parks with its small footprint and portability. 

    I'm happy to report that you are indeed free to bring a GoPro with you into the Disneyland Resort. Please note, though, that selfie sticks (hand-held extension poles) are found on the Prohibited Items List and therefore would not be allowed. If you use a non-extending handle for stabilization, that would be fine. Just hang on to your camera while on rides and remember to be courteous of others as you film. There are many attractions where video lighting is not allowed and would disrupt other guests' enjoyment.

    If you're like me and always find yourself behind the camera, then make use of the many Disney PhotoPass photographers you'll find around the Parks so you can document that you were there too! Photo downloads are included with a Genie+ purchase along with many fun PhotoPass lenses found in the Disneyland Mobile App

    Greyson, I hope that answer was helpful for you and that you are able to record some awesome footage from your time at the Happiest Place on Earth! One of my favorite clips that I've filmed is a first person view as I rode the Matterhorn Bobsleds! I'm sure you'll bring home some wonderful memories, too. If you need anything else from us, please feel free to write again. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
