My trusty, if old 400D has been with me to the 'World many times. I have my bog-standard 18-55mm, 50mm fixed and my 50-300mm and an assortment of filters and whatnots to ensure I capture everything I need to.

Most of the kids rides in disney I dont normally worry about my lens flying off the ride as they're not that fast. I tend to ride one cart/carrage in front and have the kids and wife in behind so i can get a clear shot of them. my wife things im crazy

Also dont forget to take videos this was our first trip to disneyland hong kong

Also at f2.8 just bump up the ISO grain is good adds character and saves taking a prime

Well my sugguestion was specific to indoor rides and night parades, so high ISO and fast is the only solution.

What are you really ever going to do with a parade picture? I get taking good pictures of the kids, but seriously, in 10 years do you envision pulling out an album of what the parade looked like?

Yup, my kids like looking at the pictures of the parades and shows and everything. Now, when the get older will they, probably not. But right now, they do and enjoy it.

Surprising. I've taken those shots and nobody ever looks at them again. I stopped taking them, personally, and mainly focus on shots of the kids in front of their favorite attractions and characters.

My wife makes really nice scrap books from each trip, which are a mix of portraits and different landscape shots.

Besides, there's more to photography than taking shots of your family, and the parks photograph beautifully. We're taking our 6th trip in 3 years next week, and I always find new and interesting things to shoot.

We go about every year and my kids really enjoy everything about Disney. Now that I have another really small one they like to show her the parades and shows that don't exist anymore. I do print some of them for the trip albums, but most are just view on the TV/computer.

Oh ya, I get the shots you refered to as well. It is not all about the parades and shows.

I took 17-50 and 55-250. Used the tele once.

I agree with your statement as well, everyone should check this thread out if you have not already seen it for examples of what you are talking about.

So what should I bump the iso up to? Great lion photo also. The only reason I went with the lens I did us because the guy at the rental shop said that's the one that would best suit my camera I wanted to rent an L lens but he steered me from that to this.

Also what sort of fast prime they told me it didn't matter what kind of lens I used for the indoor rides that it's so dark it wouldn't make a difference

Thanks Wretha, I wouldn't be shy on the ISO I'd bump it upto 1600 or 3200, actually even 6400 isn't bad if you need to go that high. I know people say you lose a lot of detail but grain creates a different feel to an image. The lion king image was shot at 3200 at 60th of a second at f2.8 with the 24-70mm L. The 17-55mm you could take the same image around 30th of a second cos of the IS and around maybe 2000ish ISO at f2.8 but you'll have to crop at post to get the same image.

They say the 17-55mm IS is basicly an L lens without the red ring and I'd agree, the only difference is the lens isn't weather sealed. I personally think the 10-22mm and the 15-85mm are 2nd and 3rd best EF-S lens. but that doesn't mean they're rubbish compared to the 17-55mm as they all have different function and job.

As for prime, I think something like the sigma 30mm or 35mm f1.4 you could take a shot with the same lighting as lion king shot at maybe 60th of a sec,1600 ISO at f1.4 but its the hassle of changing lens. primes a difficult one to get right. do you go for the range and get a 85mm or an all round walk about 30mm?

Dont let me talk you out of it if you really want an L lens the 24-70 is amazing. you just have to remember to take a few steps back and tight space shot will be difficult.

Have you picked a lens to rent yet?

I took only the Sigma 30 1.4 on my 60D to Magic Kingdom last month and it was perfect. Left my grip at the hotel. Used the pop-up flash a bit around the noon hours--couldn't imagine lugging a flash around on my camera while juggling my toddler, three nieses, stroller, diaper bag, my wife . . .

I just wanted to offer my two cents:

I live in north central Florida and go to the parks quite frequently (have season tickets). I normally just take the 17-55 along with the 430EX II, all in a Black Rapid strap. I can take 90% of the shots with that combo.

The 10-22 might be the ticket for really wide or crowded shots. I have taken my 70-300 and 100L macro in hopes of using them them, but I just decided that it was just too much trouble, and only a few shoots really warrant them. Only when I knew that I wanted the reach for animals or shows I would take the long zoom along.

I normally have a CP on my lens and never leave the hood at home. The batteries on the flash usually last all day. A fast prime 30 ~50 can be handy for the night shoots. But I usually just use my 17-55. Some times I take the 50 just because is so light and works great for the fireworks.
