Hey Shelley! Welcome to DC!! :biggrin:
In Disneyland, there are GREAT photo ops everywhere, but it sounds like you have some of the best already planned out! I thought I’d help with DCA since it’s a little more fresh in my mind.
Just a few great photo ops in DCA…
*The bridge over to Paradise Pier. It’s a BEAUTIFUL spot to have your picture taken, with all of Paradies Bay and the rides on the Pier lit up behind you.
*In front of the Tower of Terror is kind of a fun spot, especially aiming up to make the Tower really…well, “tower” over you! :laugh:
*In front of Grizzly River Run, there is a great big carved bear dressed in his river gear…makes a really cute pic
*The entrance plaza is always a beautiful photo op, both in front of the Golden Gate Bridge replica and in front of the golden sun
*One of my faves…down on the Pier, in front of the giant Mickey-head loop on California Screamin’ (especially when it’s lit up at night!) Tilting the camera up, you can get an awesome postcard-like shot of your family’s smiles underneath the sparkling “Paradise Pier” sign + the roller coaster zooming through the Mickey loop! :biggrin:
*Posing for a pic beneath the entryway to Hollywood Pictures Backlot
*The city streetscape facade at the back of Hollywood Pictures Backlot
*Posing in the giant letters that spell out CALIFORNIA outside DCA C, A and L are particularly easy to sit on LOL!
Anyway, those are just a few…I’m sure there are a lot more that you will discover while you’re there, but it’s late for me and I’m drawing a blank. Haha! Hope those helped a bit.
