Shot lists?

How many of you either come up with shot lists before your WDW trip? I just read Will's ebook, Capture the Magic, and he suggests coming up with a shotlist...but, I'm wondering how many of you actually do that.

I have a few ideas in mind, nothing concrete outside of fireworks and some night shots in Tomorrowland.

Anyway, if you have shot lists or have in the past, post 'em along with your experiences.

It doesn't mean you have to sit down and write out a list. However, it never hurts to have some ideas of preconceptions of what you want to capture.

For instance, you may know you want fireworks in Epcot from the balcony of the Japanese restaurant. Maybe you want a portrait of a character with the Castle in the background.

I've often found that thinking about a few ideas like these will lead me to other shots, even unplanned ones that I notice when I'm setting up for something on my list.

Crap, I had 2 shots as soon as I saw the title... now I have to use spell check dammit!

I look at photos that others have taken and try to think of what I could do differently with what is in my kit, cause I dont want to replicate anyone elses shots I want my own. But I always have some ideas...

I usually have a mental list but that flies out the window when my DW yells at me to chase the 2 year old. LOL. I spent most of my past trip jumping chains and going under guardrails.

I'm still trying to find out how her legs move soooo fast.
