    Hi there, I bought a gimbal DJI Osmo Mobile 6 for this Disney trip and very excited to use! If I don’t extend it, would I be able to bring it into the parks?

    Hi there Connie, I'm thrilled to wish you a very merry welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like you've decided to make a holiday trip at what's looking to be a very popular and busy time down at Walt Disney World Resort, so you'll definitely want to be extra-careful with your new gimbal amidst the hustle and bustle of the Christmastime crowds.

    Now you're definitely not the first person who has asked about bringing in this specific piece of equipment and at the current time, when clarification is needed about it Cast Members can only point to the official Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules and repeat the following: "Selfie sticks, hand-held extension poles for cameras or mobile devices, flags and banners are not allowed in any theme park or water park."

    Now as someone who owns more than one gimbal myself I can tell the difference between this and a selfie stick, but this does not necessarily mean that a Cast Member at any of the security checkpoints will be able to discern that - especially if they take it out for inspection and see its extendable function. It is at their discretion to determine what can and cannot be brought into the theme parks (especially if there is a chance that a guest could extend any device despite promising not to).

    I have however, also noticed various vloggers and influencers out and about the theme parks who have been invited to Disney events this year with the same gear and based on my observations as they enter the theme parks, your best bet might be to carry it outside of a bag and hold it directly out in front of you as you pass through the scanners so that the security team Cast Members can clearly see it as you make your way forward. Policies are always subject to change without prior notice or strictly determined on the day by security leadership so be ready to comply in the event that you are still not permitted to bring it in - so it'll be up to you to decide whether this is something you're prepared for when visiting at a such a busy time of year.

    Either way, I hope you have the Merriest Time at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
