    Hi all -- I'm an avid photographer and want to snap as many photos of my kids on their first trip to WDW. Question -- does WDW allow the use of tripods in the park? I really only plan to use it during the various fireworks shows. Thanks!

    Photo tripods are permitted at Disney World. I've read numerous stories online about guests discussing their tripod use, particularly during low-light situations such as during fireworks presentations.

    While you are welcome to use your tripod, I have to caution you that the tripod is no substitute for vigilance about your equipment. For example, I would keep a hand on the camera or tripod at all times. The parks can get quite crowded during the fireworks. I can easily picture a situation where another guest stumbles in the dark and knocks over your set-up. When selecting your photo spot, you should also be considerate of other guests. Stay out of walkways and try not to block the view of others, particularly children.

    The balcony above the train station is a wonderful, out of the way, place to capture the magic of the Magic Kingdom fireworks on film.

    Happy snapping.
