The only thing that worries me is my DSLR camera as well. Here is what I am thinking. If you plan on going to any water parks or parks where you will be riding a lot of water rides (Most rides you do not get that wet except obviously the water parks) then leave the big camera in the room or your car. The others put it in a ziplock bag.

I plan to use ziploc bags for everything in my smallish backpack. If I take my DSLR it will be double bagged. I have another smaller digital I may alternate. I was looking at getting one of those basic soft cases for DSLRs to offer a bit of cushion BUT 2 Ziplocs too. This will speed up finding things and going through security.

Healthcare items in one, maps etc. in another, wallet items in another, snacks in yet another.

I'm surprised that you have been able to do that (leave your bag with a CM to watch for you). It seems like the CMs wouldn't want to take responsibility for watching guests' bags, especially if there are expensive things like cameras in them. Who's to say that the CM wouldn't need to step away for a minute and leave your bag unattended? Or that some other guest might walk up and say that it's their bag!

I guess I'd just take my bag on the ride with me, or put it in a locker.
