14 Things People Do That Will Drive You Crazy at Disney

7) Flash Photography There are some rides and other attractions where flash photography is prohibited, but that doesn't stop people from taking flash pictures anyway. If flashes aren't allowed, make sure that you've turned it off from your camera or phone before you take any pictures. Flash photography is prohibited for several reasons. Sometimes Disney doesn't want the flash to bother other guests. The flash can sometimes affect performers in a show. Too much light can change the atmosphere on a ride such as Haunted Mansion, and sometimes the extra light can damage elements of the ride. Sudden flashes in a dark environment can also be dangerous for a person with epilepsy. If Disney says that flash photography is prohibited, respect the rule.
