    To be specific, is gimbal allowed in Disneyland California?

    Hey there, Shaula!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for coming by with your question! Sounds like you're a person after my own heart. In another life, I think I would have been a videographer because I love a good video with stabilized footage and you just can't do that without a reliable gimbal. I'd love to give you some guidance on what is allowed through security.

    First of all, I would recommend that you study the list of Prohibited Items for the Disneyland Resort to make sure that you are in compliance. Since gimbals are not listed, they are allowed through security. I often bring my smartphone gimbal into the Parks with me and I see other guests using gimbals all the time. The only caution I might have would be for gimbals that feature an extending arm, because that might be considered under the extending selfie stick category. Ultimately, it will be at the discretion of the security cast member on what to allow. Most common gimbals, however, are allowed.

    In addition to getting some great video footage, be sure to get some wonderful photos as well! I love utilizing the Disney PhotoPass photographers whenever I can because sometimes that's the only way I get into the frame since I'm always the one behind the lens. And during the Disney100 Celebration, all attraction PhotoPass photos are complimentary to download, so be sure to take advantage of that. 

    Shaula, I hope that this was helpful for you as you plan your Holiday trip! Please write back to us again if you have any more questions because you'll always be welcome at planDisney! 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
