    I plan to bring my action camera (from Insta360) to Disneyland California. It has a detachable tripod + selfie stick (2 in 1). I read the policy online that tripods are allowed if they extend below 6 feet. Mine extends for up to 3 feet only. Is it allowed?

    Hello there, Julia, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for bringing us your question and how exciting that your trip to the Disneyland Resort is coming up very soon! I'm sure that you're refining your packing list and making sure that you don't forget any essentials, so let's take a look at your question.

    I'm a camera geek and thanks to another Guest who had asked about an Insta360 camera previously, I've had the chance to research this action cam. I thought that it was so cool that it erases the stick and stitches the footage into a full 360 degree view! What a cool camera to document your time in the Parks!

    Both the Permitted Items List and the Park Rules and Regulations state that selfie sticks, defined as hand-held extension poles for cameras and mobile devices, are not allowed. In order to better advise you, I actually looked up the Insta360 2-in-1 Invisible Selfie Stick to check out its features on the insta360.com website. Even though it does appear to function as a tripod, I think the ability to extend and function as a selfie stick (even if only 3 feet) will make it fall under Prohibited Items and that it would not be permitted. Ultimately, it is at the discretion of the Security Cast Members what is allowed through, but they are very careful not to allow extending sticks into the Parks due to safety concerns. I once had a camera gimbal and had to demonstrate that the handle did not extend. Just to be safe, Julia, my recommendation would be to leave that particular accessory at home. Non extending hand-held camera grips are allowed, however. 

    I'm sorry that my answer couldn't be more positive. I still hope that you'll be able to record some epic footage of your visit, though, especially since Pixar Fest will be going on and you can get a unique perspective on Better Together: A Pixar Pals Celebration! at Disney California Adventure! I just returned from a visit and that parade is an absolute delight for any Pixar fan! And if you ever want that more traditional portrait shot, be sure to utilize the many Disney PhotoPass photographers spread throughout the Resort. Their Magic Shots are a unique and magical addition that you can't find anywhere else!

    Julia, I hope this was useful information for you. Please drop by again if you have more questions. It's always our pleasure to assist you and we'd love to hear from you! 

    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
