I am sure this has been beaten to death. I have a nice travel tripod but I have never taken a tripod on vacation before. I am going to Disneyland for 5 days with 1 day roaming Los Angeles and 1 day and Universal Studios Hollywood. I am looking to get a Manfrotto Advanced Backpack that the tripod will fit into. I am wondering if I will use the tripod enough to make it worth dragging around or just bring the monopod? This isn't purely photo journey but a family vacation with the wife and 2 kids in tow. In addition to carrying around the extra weight all day, putting out the family to be pulling out and setting up the tripod. Ideas, thoughts and personal experience appreciated.
