    anyone else heard this? apparently so called professional cameras have always been banned but never enforced


    Disneyland Resort increases enforcement of "professional camera" ban
    If you plan to bring your high-end camera on your next visit to the Disneyland Resort, you might want to measure your camera lenses first. Several visitors to the Resort during the week leading up to the Miley Cyrus event reported that cast members were prohibiting camera lenses longer than 6" beyond the bag check screening tents, citing a ban on "professional cameras." The scrutiny was especially high on the day of the actual event, and one person overheard a cast member explain that "there are celebrities in the parks today!" as justification for refusing to allow the visitor to enter the park with a long zoom lens.

    Officially, a Disneyland Resort spokesperson says "it has always been our policy that professional lenses are not allowed inside the resort without a public relations host," but some readers and cast members allege that the crackdown is a result of paparazzi behavior during a recent visit by actress Lindsay Lohan . Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham and Courtney Cox have all had encounters with professional photographers at the Resort in recent years.

    a friend had this happen to them!

    their lens bit was less than 6inches but the security person said that the camera was not an amatur one and so wasnt allowed without a license in the park!
