COOL Disney shots (angles, composition, etc.) - SHARE YOURS!

I am creating this thread as a place to share some of your favorite "Must have" Disney shots. Of course we all get pictures of the castle, the geosphere at EPCOT and such...but share some unique angles, interesting compositions.

My last trip to the World I had a 4YO in tow and didn't have a lot of time to spend composing my photos. I am hoping to make another trip next fall with just my boyfriend and I. We both love photography and would love tips, suggestions, examples of some neat angles, perspectives, compositions of all things Disney. It could be park icons, rides, landscapes, characters, with or without people. No limits. Just looking for some cool new ideas of things and/or ways to photograph Disney.

I will start off with a few of my own:


A different perspective of the Tower of Terror


Goofy with the Castle in the background


Shot down Main Street toward the entrance. (I would imagine not many people take pictures facing this direction down Main Street.)


Rock N Roller Coaster


Duffy...or at least his awesome Mickey paw!


Main Street balloons...(On my photo list for next time...a balloon shot with the castle in the background!)

Pixiedust, did you stand in the queue area to take this photo? It looks like we had a similar idea - or that we both tend to look up

If you're looking for inspiration for some different shots, a good thread well worth a look is one on here called "Show me photos an average tourist won't take .." or something similarly worded. Some amazing photos in there.

It's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

Here is one I took from an angle not always seen. During Star Wars Weekend they open up behind RnR for Darth Maul's shop and that is how I was able to get this angle.
