Yes definitely take pictures with hats and antannaes on (I have minnie antannaes that I love!) And look at it this way, you can try on so many hats, get all the pictures with them on, and you don’t have to buy them! But, if you didnt want to buy one right away, and you have a digital camera, all you have to do is scroll through the pictures and see which one you the like the best, and go back and buy it!
I say start some sort of picture tradition. That way, every year you can take the same kind of picture. Examples: Kids in front of a certain tree or fountain, the family with ice cream or popsicles, dinner at a certain restaurant, pictures of the the family members pointing to the sign of their favorite ride, do air guitar in front of RnR and take a picture, the ideas are endless really.
Have fun with pictures. Do you really think you can look stupid while other grown ups are walking around wearing Goofy hats, and while Dads are forced to carry their little princess’ pink purse? You can’t. So have fun.
I always take pictures of just about every float in every parade. The AK parade is particularly good because everything is bright colors. I also like the MK parade.
Here is a list I found of “must take” photos at WDW
