I would never go on vacation without my camera! I really love to capture those magic moments while touring solo. Fireworks, castle lights, rides, characters...I love making a photobook after I get home which I then can bring along and show to family and friends.
This year during my 5.day trip to WDW I had prepaid for the photopass-cd and it was so worth it. I ended up with more than 300 (!!!) pictures of me and every single character I could find in the parks. Some of the pics are so beautiful and I look at the photobook I made with the images a lot.
As far as other pictures go, I often handed my camera to someone around and kindely asked if the person could take a picture...always worked.

Pics which capture everything are (for me) part of a vacation.

i probably take more photos during my solo time during vacation then i do with the group. When im by myself i dont have to worry about slowing anyone down.

On my last trip I had a parts of the day that I was solo and that's where most of my pictures are from.

my trips are usually 2-3 weeks. I take thousands of photos, I'm a photographer, it's what I do.
My last trip Oct. 2011 I was fortunate enough to get this photo of a very rare, Sexxy and Beautiful character at DTD


Pirate Rule #9: A pirate should always remove his hat in the presence of a bartender.
Pirate Rule #11: No pirate shall ever wear a “fanny pack”.
Pirate Rule # 17: Three-cornered hats, headbands and bandanas are the only acceptable headwear for pirates. Fedoras, bowler derbies, baseball caps, MICKEY EARS, top hats, sombreros, or anything with lace and flowers will be removed from the vessel– head included. A grace period of one minute is allowed for hats looted from a tailory.

Often when I visit the parks I go solo, and I find that I take more pictures when I'm by myself (so as not to slow others down, as others have mentioned).

Nowadays, when I visit the parks, I try to remember to take more pictures with me in them by using the front-facing camera on my phone. It's funny because people will be walking in front of me when I'm doing that, and they will pause and wait for me to finish, even though they're not interfering with my picture taking. Sometimes I've told people to go ahead, that I'm using my front-facing camera. I guess me smiling at my phone with something cool behind me is not obvious enough. It is really respectful of them to wait, though.

And yes, PhotoPass is great to have when you're on a solo trip!
