It all depends on your own style of photography. Best one to answer your question are you :D
In januari Disney Hong Kong I toke the 24-70 II and 70-200 II and last year in Disney Tokyo I toke the 16-35 II and 70-200 II.

For me the best set is the 24-70 II and 70-200 II. But sometimes I leave the 70-200 II at home/hotel. and only bring the 24-70 II

For my self I did not like the 16-35 II for Disney parks ;-)a

I would pick the 17-40, 35 is not wide enough IMHO.

I love UWA @ Disney. It allows taking shots while being in the action of attractions.

There's no mention of a 24L II in his lens line-up. I have all three (24L, 35L and 17-40), but I'd still side with most people here and suggest the 17-40 for dayside and 35L for evening.

With today's super high ISO with nice noise control, < f/2.8 tends to be less of an issue. I'd go UWA for nice environmental shots. 35mm would work for most shots but not for large scenic shots. 24-105 would be a nice all-around lens. Full-bokeh portraiture doesn't make too much sense if you can't tell that your subject is at Disney.

I agree with above. My next Disney trip I plan to use my 24-105 almost exclusively. I used it yesterday at a local theme park and I thought it worked well.

Bring both. Plenty wide shots inside for 17-40L, 35L lowlight

yup...I make sure I take at least one fast prime on any vacation so I'm covered for low-light and night scenes.

I used the 24-105 at WDW this summer. It was perfect for almost every situation. The only time I felt limited was in the fireworks. I would have liked something just a bit wider.

I also used the 24-105. It was great for what I needed it for. If I were there to take pictures, it would have been different. :D

It really depends on your personal style. Either lenses would be killer.

My guess is the OP has gone on several vacations by now. Old thread, nearly four months old. :D
