    Are there any restrictions as to length of camera lenses in the parks?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sheila! Thanks for swinging by with your question today. The best souvenir you can take home from a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a great collection of photos you took when you were there. Bringing your own camera is a great way to ensure you're catching memories of every magical moment!

    Currently, there are no restrictions regarding camera lenses in the Walt Disney World Resort property rules. You are welcome to bring your photo equipment with a few exceptions: selfie sticks and handheld extension poles for mobile devices are not allowed, and neither are tripods or monopods that extend over six feet or cannot fit inside a standard backpack. Beyond that, feel free to pack the camera equipment that you feel will best help you capture your memories. 

    Sheila, you may want to leave a little bit of extra time in the morning on days you're planning on bringing extra camera equipment to the Theme Parks. I think it's likely that security will want to check out your bags, and they may have a few questions about what you're intending to photograph. Photography for unapproved commercial purposes is not allowed, so they might ask about what you intend to do with your photos. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes at the point of entry, but it's always a good idea to leave yourself some extra time.

    Have a magical day!
