Is there life outside of Disney? If so, I don't want to know about it.

Debating which camera to bring. I love taking photos. I love my dslr. But this is a relaxing vacation. Except for running around and doing three parks in one day on Friday. I have a nice point and shoot with a zoom lens and a decent amount of mega pixels. It's would save carry on space and weight. Logic says go with the small camera. Since when am I logical when it comes to Disney?

I'm going to go with - bring both! Seriously, if you do most of your running around with the small camera that should suffice. But if you're like me with my DSLR, whenever I'm trying to take photos with something else, I miss my good camera and the serious lenses. If you kept your DSLR in the safe until you saw specific need for it (obviously that doesn't work on an outing), you would have both options. Of course, carrying two cameras and the associated gear is REALLY not traveling light.

Lisa, you are sooooo, helpful. I thought it would be Jeff that would be so helpful to me. Althought I should have known since I don't think I saw you once without your camera in L.A.

See you soon.

Yep, I'm the helpful sort of person. I have a hard time being anywhere interesting, gorgeous or fun without my camera.

See ya real soon! (though not soon enough for any of us, I'm sure)

we are also going to do three parks on friday start at mk and see the new fantasyland, head over to dhs try to get in a go around on tsm (our fav ride)and see the osbourne lights and get over to epcot for extra pm hours ..maybe we will run into each other. We have never bought park hoppers in all our trips, but since we only have 1 day and will not be back at disney for a while we gotta cram it all in

Can't believe that Lisa beat me to it, but yes Kim that would have been my answer as well. I guarantee that I'll have both the big camera and the PnS. I just love taking pictures of parts of the ship and in the ports (some of which I haven't seen in 20+ years) with the big camera. But I also love wandering around unencumbered. So you'll see me with the big camera and you'll see me without a camera (it will be in my pocket, but yes I am happy to see you too ).

Fortunately Val & I won't have a packing issue this time since we are driving down.

I too am a double camera guy. Fortunately, I have been able to fit both in one bag. So, for me it's quite easy. Bigger bag houses the DSLR - smaller bag holding the waterproof P&S fits inside. So, for me - I'm taking the big bag anyway, so it's only a weight thing (and this is a carryon, so only my shoulder cares!) not a space concern.

Now for you three parks in one day folks - egads!!! I get wanting to cram, but even for this Disney geek three parks in a day seems ultra insane. Now if you can catch the transportation just right - I guess you can do some damage - but I'd go crazy with all the dead time moving between parks and lines... I've done two parks in a day and been productive - but three? You guys are hard core! Thankfully we are coming in three days early so we can avoid the cost of a park hopper - we just had to eliminate one park from the rotation. Good luck!!

We are a multiple camera carrying family. Scott carries his DSLR & I carry the waterproof point & shoot. Sometimes, DD carries a camera also!

Well the 3 parks in one day is really, check out the new Fantasyland, wander around Epcot at leisurely pace, head over to DHS for Osbourne and then back to Epcot for Illuminations and EMH. If Fantasyland is crazy crowded, beyond the level we are willing to deal with, we will be gone fast. Epcot is our main plan.

Did Chacchoben in April, was fascinating. Wished I had read something more before going.

Was thinking of Tulum if offered. Anyone else thinking of that?
