Walt Disney World Photo Spots and Opps

I haven’t met one person yet who doesn’t LOVE to take pictures at Walt Disney World.  After each trip, we seem to out do the first with the number we can fill our digital cards with. What did we ever do without the memory card?  I can’t even imagine the amount of film I would have to buy to equal the number of pictures we take now.  Join us as we talk about our favorite photo spots and fun picture opportunities we have taken on our magical vacations.SE2

  1. I like to take a pic of my daughter at a spot in each country – a spot that signifies that country. Like the phone booth in England, the totem pole in Canada, the troll in Norway, and definately with the sombrero in Mexico!
