I think most of us sometimes have that content block in our minds and struggle to think of new photos to post. For some people who visit the parks often, it’s probably much easier due to constantly having photos from the parks to upload. However, for me and potentially for many other people, if you only visit the parks once every few years or haven’t visited the parks before, it can be hard to think of disney related images…
Something I think is beneficial, is how many shops sell Disney items. Sometimes, I have gone into Primark and taken a few photos of their latest Disney products. People love to see what Disney items are out there for them to buy and you could be the influence of someone finding an item they love! It could be home items, or clothing or even pop into the Disney store and see if there’s any official Disney merch on sale. There’s lots of items and shops you could promote on your Instagram account!
Personally, I take so many photos when I visit Disney parks as it is, but now I have my Instagram account, I will be taking even more photos when I next visit…god help my camera roll storage haha! But, park photos are probably the most popular photos for Disney Instagram accounts. Everyone loves to see the parks, rides, characters etc so make sure when you do visit, you take plenty of photos to keep you filled with content until your next trip!
Another idea if you don’t visit the parks often can be taking photos of your own Disney merch. You may have lots of Disney clothing that you’ve never thought about posing in and taking a snap! Or, you don’t even have to get in the photo, place the clothing item nicely on your bed or floor and get the best angle for the item! People love seeing clothing items, atleast i do! Another way you could post clothing items is by creating an outfit. Some people I see post their outfits that they may wear to the parks on their next trip – super cute and offers people ideas of how to dress when they go too (or how to dress in their day to day life!!)
What is nice about Disney Instagram accounts, is that people tend to find it flattering if you ask them whether you can repost their post. It’s always best to ask before posting just so you know they’re comfortable with it, and also remember to credit them in the caption for the photo. But, if you have run out of ideas, then use other people images! It’s so nice when someone asks me whether they can repost, plus it could even help you gain some followers by letting them! By reposting images from other accounts, it can make your Instagram account look so cool with the different coloured images and themes going on. I know some of you may just want your account to be your style and images, but some people have insanely amazing shots, I’d love to have them on my feed too!!
Day to day life could also be something you post about, that can also relate to Disney. For example, are you watching a Disney film? Take a photo of the DVD box, or TV screen and show them! It’s related to Disney, gives your Instagram a more human like feel and let’s people know what you’re up to. Or, you could try and bake some Disney treats and if they turn out good then why not show them off!
Souvenirs are cute to share. I love seeing old souvenirs people got from the parks years ago. Souvenirs are sentimental for a lot of people. You could post the park maps you picked up, or if you bought something from the parks, or park tickets. Whatever you have from your trip, its so lovely to post!
Along with souvenirs, there are some hardcore Disney pin lovers out there! If you collect the pins, then trust me, people want to see your pins. Or, if you collect something else, then show off your collection. You may think ‘oh is this boring to look at’ but some people will really be interested in the pins or collection items.
Something for people who are creative and into art…create your own Disney art! Either draw, paint or digitally produce something. I find it so cool and incredible the art pieces some accounts post. I wish I was good enough to draw or whatever, so if you have the talent then show them what you can do!
It is difficult to keep your account active with different content or if you’ve run out of Disney park photos to post. But when you think about what else there is Disney related outside of the parks, or what you do in your day to day life, you’d be surprised just how many new photos you can take and post!
If you have any ideas, leave them as a comment to help out even more!
