Not all of your photos of Cinderella Castle need to be straight on or include the whole castle, try getting up close or down low and capture some of the details.

If you watch the parade from just in front of the castle you can capture any of your favourite floats with the castle behind. This one of Minnie and Mickey in their hot air balloon is my favorite.
