Thank you for taking time to point that out!
I've seen many a gorillapod on top of a trash can...could be something near an answer for you.

I'm hoping to shoot DL at night when it clears out more between 10-12.
Depending on when you go, it can/will still be pretty darn crowded after 10:00 pm.

I'll probably find you are right in the summer months. It may be wishful thinking but I see these deserted shots of different areas and the time is somewhere past 11:00pm. I was hoping to get something but I'll need to take what I can get. Photoshop can take some people out as long as it's not too many.

I believe some people put their tripods on top of trash cans or other existing surfaces for extra height.

Your backpack question seems to have been answered, but I will just confirm that I have carried my bag on every Disney ride without issue. It's one of the small details that I love about Disney!

In looking at park photos, I'm "hoping" to setup on the edge of partners statue. I see a little ledge there. I might be able to use that. If not, I'll take what I can get.

Excellent!
If it's the ledge I am thinking about, be warned that the Partners statue is in the center of a fenced off circle. Flowers surround the statue. I've never seen anyone inside the circle.

Oh that's even better. I'd rather be further away from the statue but (hopefully???) in front. I assumed I saw photos from that ledge. If the outer circle is the rope line, then I'm good with that. I've seen photos with the fireworks and the statue and a clear view with no one in front. Once we get there, I was planning on figuring out the real location I'd try for. I plan to get there early so we'll see.

Thanks!

In the past when I've brought my DSLR and my lenses (I just travel camera lighter now as it gets too heavy for me), I would use my camera knapsack for everything as it's well padded and I'd put a leg through each arm strap to make sure it was really secure and not banging around during any rides. Never any problems with any of my camera gear that way.
