For 2 years now I have a pass to go to Disneyland Paris. I'm going there 10 times a year with my kids. I've tried all my gear over there, except the 70-200/2.8.

For Disney, my favorite on 5D2 goes 17-40. Ideal for lots of "landscapes". But it's my favorite because I can shoot "inside action". And my kids still love to watch the vids I took from there, it remind them the great moments.

Sometimes I complete it with a 135L just for headshots and little details.

Maintime, Disney people are hard to take in picture because lots of people are around them. For this reason, the 17-40L is still the key because you're trying to be near them although.

I love to shoot 24-105L most of the time because this lens can do everything. So it is for Disney.

I didn't managed the 35L as good as this one but enjoyed it there to shoot the parades or inside dark attractions.

Finally, now when I'm going to Disney, I'm taking 17-40 or 24-105, according to my mood on this day.

My choice can be different then yours but be sure that One Lens Only is the best solution.

Gonna have to use a 50 Sig or something as fast at night. You'll use the wide end of a zoom by far during the day, but for shows and stuff you'll need telephoto as well.

I had two copies of the Sigma 50 and neither impressed me on the Rebels that I had. The focus was unreliable and the only way I'd buy one again is if I still had my 7D.

The Sigma 50 works nicely with my 5DII and the fact that you can micro focus adjust it on the 5DII is a nice bonus...

24-105. I went to Orlando (Universal and Island) and 17-50 was all I used there on a crop. I did take a tele but might as well had left it home.

Disney will be an all day event I would consider a 24-70 on a FF body.

Just went to Disneyland 4 days ago with my 5Dii and 24-105, it was the perfect lens for most of what I wanted to shoot. I do wish I had brought my 17-40 as well. I found myself in some really tight places where even 24mm wasn't wide enough. I also took a 580ex2. While there are many places you can't use flash, if you're taking pictures of people, in my case my 2 yr old granddaughter on her first trip, fill flash is invaluable on a bright sunny day, and nice to have after the sun goes down.

:D Actually it will be an eight day event. Guess I can take several lenses with me, but only intend a hauling one at a time. Thinking about adding a 50/1.8 mk1 or the 17-40 to my kit before we leave. Any more feelings on which I should get before we leave for the trip?

I'd say the 24-105mm is perfect. I'll also say that when I owned a Sigma 50mm 1.4 along with my 7D and 5D classic, I did not like it on the 7D. But I absolutely loved it on the 5D. I am saving for another one. It is the type of lens that really needs full frame to be appreciated. And now that you have a 5D2...

I went to Disneyworld for new years with my 5D and 28-75mm - it handled everything spectacularly. I'd say you're more than fine with the 24-105. :) I'd definitely spring for an UWA if you can though, they REALLY shine there. I'd personally use one for the fireworks shots also.

(Not sure if you meant DWorld or Land! There shouldn't be too much variance with all that Disney in there though. ;) )

Thanks everyone for making your case. I'll look to pick up a 17-40 before the trip

If I was going on the trip I'd be taking my 5D2, 24-105 f4 L and my 50 1.8 (as I haven't got a 1.4 yet). I don't think the f4 would be much of a problem for the light shows as you can up the ISO quite a bit on the 5D2 and still get excellent results. On the first night I got mine (november 5th, last year) there was a fire in a local garden and I got some great photos of the fire tender and crew in virtual darkness with my 24-105 f4L.
