A few weeks ago I was getting on Radiator Springs Racers at DL, and the woman behind me in line was playing with her ipad the entire time she was in line. As she went to put it away, she managed to drop it, face down, into where you step down into the car. She picked it up, and the entire screen was cracked in multiple places. It was in one of those secure things with a cover, buy the cover had opened on the way down. After we got off the ride, my wife and I agreed she was never bringing her tablet to an amusement park.

I would be scared to take an ipad for photos into the park. My iphone, in a candy case is okay for pics I can't use a flash for. I was in Florence last fall and the ipad seemed to be the photo device of choice for everyone in the churches that allow photography but no flash. I used my phone. Walking through an Italian cathedral is one thing, BTMRR is another.

I have an iPad mini that fits perfectly into my purse. I will be taking it to the parks to check wait times for rides and I figure if they ever roll out fastpass+ I will need it to book/change fast passes. My cell phone is too old and outdated for this purpose.

But I will never use it as a camera or recording device!

I can totally see the benefits of a tablet at Disney. It would keep your kids entertained while waiting in all the lines. I wouldn't bring a huge one, but I think one of the smaller ones would be easy to carry and helpful.

I've taken my i-pad into the parks for a couple of years now. I keep it in my Rickshaw Ipad messenger bag, and have never had any problems. This year I finally got an iphone, so I'm looking forward to carrying it in the parks instead. It really wasn't too heavy, about the weight of carrying around a magazine. I only occasionally took pictures with it. Mostly I used it to post fun stuff on facebook, check in on foursquare, check attraction wait times, and play games while waiting in lines!

Taking mine for sure for the 6 year old! I'm going to be taking my 7 inch tablet instead of my big iPad. I wouldn't want to be carrying one that big.
