I'm going in June and I plan to take only a S110. It's small and pocketable. It will be the first vacation I haven't taken my 40d which is something. I'm quite over lugging gear on holiday... sometimes I was so over it I would leave it in the hotel room!

So yeah, to add another perspective I'm taking a small compact!

I know the feeling. I always brought my point and shoot (then a SD800 and now a S95) along with a waterproof enclosure so that I can safely use it on the water rides. On a ten day park hooper Disney World trip, leaving the DSLR in the hotel room felt like a vacation from a vacation. :)

However, I freely admit, that on such long trips, there's been plenty of times when I just wander around and take pictures of whatever looked interesting. That's when having the DSLR really came in handy. And that's why I always use the option of parking the DSLR stuff in a coin locker --- having the heavy gear near by is enough to forget all about it and relax.

Being that we live in Florida and only a 2 1/2 hour drive, we tend to visit more often. I will usually bring my 5DII or III with the 35 1.4 or the 16-35L. That being said, my last trip, I brought the EOS-M (with just the 22 pancake) and a 270 flash. For all the negative press, it really is a great camera to take for a day trip to Disney (good picture quality and while focus speed isn't on par with my 5d's, it is perfectly fine for Disney. If I was going for multiple days, I would bring both. The 24-105 does make a good "one lens" solution, though I honestly prefer the 16-35.
