Photos of Food at Disney: Do’s & Don’ts

Many people have a favorite food, drink or snack at Disney Parks (mine is a toss up between the Hollywood Brown Derby’s Famous Cobb Salad and the Tortilla Soup at San Angel Inn). I also love a good picture of a meal every now and then. I am not the person who Instagrams every food item I ever have the pleasure of eating. Which leads me into my “don’ts” list:

Don’t…

  • Try to take a photo of everything you eat. It’s just too much. Stop. You’re making it less special by doing so (exception: food bloggers/other related fields).
  • Take photos in dark places unless you can light it properly.
  • Include distracting things in the photo: people in the background, other items on the table, etc. unless it adds to the story.
  • Take so long to take a photo that your meal is cold or the rest of your group is halfway through their’s.
  • Get in the way of other guests who are trying to enjoy their food.

 

Do…

  • Take advantage of seating outside if you plan to photograph your meal. Natural light is lovely.
  • Take a photo right when you get the meal before eating any of it.
  • Take a photo or two of the setting as well (the sign, the building, etc.)
