Seeing that you don't bring a bag into the parks, do you do anything differently when you go on rides? That ideal is intriguing, but in my case I will likely also have my GoPro with me, on a stroller most of the time, but taken off for rides.

Going on rides generally isn't that hard. If I have my camera on a tripod, I just stand it up between my legs. If it's on the strap, then I hold onto it for dear life - especially on Space Mountain

I normally carry three additional lenses (70-200 f2.8, 30mm f1.4, and 18-55) to my walk-around 28-70 f2.8 along with all the supporting gear for my DSLR in a Lowepro Fastpack 200. The DSLR is never "put away". I also carry my travel tripod on the side of my bag. Its a standard backpack style. I sometimes will carry a second camera body. I also have two other bags that I bring on the trip, a Lowepro Slingshot 200 and the DW's Built (medium) Cargo Camera Bag. I kind of pick and choose as the vacation goes along. The first few days are always pack mule days, followed by lighter days and near the end back to pack mule to ensure I have covered my "shot list".

I had my Lowepro in a boat, and it was completely covered by a rogue wave (at which point I snatched it up pretty quickly) and I was relieved to find the inside completely dry.

I used to use a Lowepro Slingshot 100 AW, and once my lens collection started growing, it really started to hurt my back. I reluctantly purchased a Lowepro Flipside 200 around October (I always thought using a backpack would make it harder to change lenses but not with this bag!), and now I can barely feel the weight on my back! I currently carry a 60D with 4 different lenses and a small flash. I rarely put the camera in the bag. When I do, I do feel the weight. I haven't taken the bag to Disney but I'm looking forward to it, as the distribution of weight on my shoulders makes it so much easier to lug all that gear around than the Slingshot, which put all the weight on one shoulder.

I guess this echoes what others have said about how everyone has their own bag preference!
