Set me a challengeSet me a challenge for my holiday to Orlando, be as inventive as possible!
From HANNAH CALLERI am 10 days away from my latest Orlando Holiday, this will be my 26th trip & I have pretty much seen & done it all, what I would like is for the most knowledgeable people I know (you guys) to set me challenges (I.e take a photo with spiderman, a picture with a dinosaur ) I don't mind what the challenge is & I am over 21, the parks I will be visiting are: Seaworld, IOA, Universal Studios, Epcot & Busch Gardens, the more random & obscure the better!

From David L.Get your photos with your favorite ride show buildings! ;-) Spiderman, Forbidden Journey, Poseidon's fury, Soarin, and any others that you aren't supposed to notice. Eating at a snack bar/restaurant you haven't eaten at before at each park. Have Fun!

From Tony DudaAt Busch Gardens Tampa, only glass walls separate you from lions, tigers, cheetahs and gorillas. Try to get photos of you and them where the glass isn't noticeable.

From Bob LiebeThe last time I was at IOA, I tried to complete the Wizarding World of Harry Potter scavenger hunt from OrlandoInformer.com. Here is the link to a printable pdf: http://netdna.orlandoinformer.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/OI_WW_scavenger_hunts.pdf

It fun trying to figure out where all off the items are. I was stumped by a few of them, and according to OI, they haven't had anyone complete it all! Good Luck! Happy Hunting and have a great trip! :-)
From Marie-Eve LandryTake a picture of you when you get out Dudley-do-right's Ripsaw fall (be sure you sit in the front)in Universal Island of adventures!

My husband and I did that and it's part of our funniest pictures from our trip!
From Curtis YoungAt Epcot, find the most "county-native-apparel" HAT at a gift shop in each and every country. Put it on and take a pic!

From Rob McCulloughUSF - Agent H, Find and photograph the hidden "Alien" restroom door. You may need to look up towards the stars to find this one, and it's unmarked so as to not draw attention to it. You will know it when you see it.

IOA - There are lots of Drive through windows at fast food places in the world. IOA has what I believe is the world's only "Float Through Window" Get a photograph of it.
SeaWorld - Dolphins are able to blow bubble rings. Don't believe me, here's a Youtube video to prove it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMCf7SNUb-Q
Epcot - Here's a theme for you for your day at Epcot - "Reflections of (Spaceship) Earth". During the course of your day, look for creative and unique ways to take photos at Epcot where reflections play a major role in the photograph. Bonus points for photos that have a reflection of Spaceship Earth in them, but any reflection based photo will do.
Magic Kingdom - Have a friend stand in front of the castle, and have him/her looking VERY concerned towards the sky in the opposite direction of the castle. Stand away from your friend and get a photo of people who turn and look up in the sky to see what he/she is looking at.
Hollywood Studios - Photos of Disney Cast Members breaking the rules. Talking on cell phones, eating/chewing gum, ignoring guests, walking past litter on the ground, etc. Good luck on this one.
Animal Kingdom - Get as many photos as you can of Brazil tour group leaders holding up a flag or other item to lead the group through the park.
Busch Gardens - Crying child coming off scary Roller coaster. Nothing funnier. Nothing.
From Doug JenkinsIf you, or someone in your party, are even remotely interested in flight, check out Fantasy of Flight between Orlando and Tampa on I-4. The worlds largest aircraft collection. You can do the most exciting ride in Florida! Go up in a Bi-plane! The rest is just historical and interesting to see, no rides, but it really is a cool place.

From HANNAH CALLERRob, I will definitely try & find that restroom, you have me intreagued, if it's at USF (& you called me agent H) I'm guessing it will be near Men in Black somewhere!
Posted August 23, 2012 at 6:23 AM
From Rob McCulloughGood luck Agent H. Let me know how it works out. I think everyone here would love it you posted any and all photos from this challenge.
