    Hi Doug. Thankyou for all your help with my planning. One ? I read one of your answers that videocameras are allowed in WDW. Can they also be taken on the rides, like Splash Mountain to film live action of my family, or is it against the rules? Thanx

    There are attractions where they ask you not to use flash photography or video cameras with lighting systems, simply so you don't distract the performers or other members of the audience.

    But as to the rules, no, I can't think of any attractions where it is "against the rules" to take your video camera with you. For thrill rides, like a roller coaster, I think they ask you not to use cameras or video cameras, due to the danger to other riders, in case you were to lose your grip on the camera.

    So I would tell you that Splash Mountain is probably a great video camera experience, as the view of the park as you emerge the Mountain is pretty great. For more 'active' rides, I would suggest you not have it out, just for the safety of you and other passengers, and so your camera can survive the experience!

    I hope that helps!

    Have a magical vacation!
