5MDH should be fine for that although I think a Nova 2 will do. Small setup so no need for something large. I've never used a tripod for fireworks, although it may make a few shots better you really don't need to hold it that long for a shot. Plus that's just a lot of extra weight.

Check the Camera Bag stickie and look through the pages for similar setups but both lenses are small enough to get a small bag.

I just returned from DisneyWorld Orlando last Thursday. I was there for 7 days and like a previous poster, I used the Lowepro Slingshot 200. I carried the 20D, 24-70mm, 10-22mm, 50 1.4, extra battery (that I didn't need) and CF cards, and kept snacks, napkins, tissues in the top pouch. I carried it from 9:00am until 9:00-11:00pm every day, taking it off to eat or when on rides. And I herniated a disc (L4/L5) this past winter and was worried about aggravating it, but it wasn't a problem. The bag was comfortable and held what I needed. It was also very convenient to "sling" it around and grab the camera to not miss a shot.

It was a bit less convenient getting into the parks because under an "orange" security state, they're searching every bag when you enter the parks. So you have to remove it and open it all up. You get good at that after a while!

Yeah, they've been doing this for at least two years now (noticed it first March 2006)... I guess they have to maintain a sense of security, even in the "Happiest place on Earth."

Suzy put it well. I go to Disney at least once per year with my family. Keep the kit light. I like a backpack as a shoulder bag hurts by back after carrying it all day. My favorite Disney kit is my 40D with 17-55 IS. You can bring a long lens but I have not found a use for one except for on the Safari ride in Animal Kingdom. Its not worth carrying one for that one ride in my opinion.

I do bring a tripod as I like firework shots, but only bring it after picking it up late in the afternoon and then I rent a stroller to carry it around. Sounds silly but it works.

I like the Tamrac Velocity sling packs. I have 2 that I have taken them to Disney World many times. I have a Velocity 7 that I use for my Canon S2. It carries all my S2 goodies and my rain gear.

If I'm taking my Rebel Xt I use a velocity 8. It will hold my XT, 18-55, 55-250, 50mm 1.8, and my flash with ease. It is large enough to hold everything plus my rain gear and you can still take it on rides.

They both ride comfortable and are easy to get to since you can just slide them arround to the front.

I like the older style with the plastic locks as opposed to the newer "x" models with zippers. You can still find the older models on eBay.

For fireworks I take my monopod and a strip of velcro. I find a spot next to a fence, there are lots of fences at Disney parks, and I strap the monopod to the fence with the velcro. It works as well as a tripod but travels much better.

Traveling lighter is better. A nice point and shoot with video can travel well all day and into the night.

I did have room to spare in the Slingshot 200, but I'm not sure if your sony would fit in the available space. You can also choose what to carry on any given day and keep the rest locked up somewhere. I saw quite a few people carrying both video and still camera gear around.

yes. This is key here....taking only what you need. My dilemma i guess would be taking a body, 3 lenses a flash ect on the plane in yet another bag....and then use the domke or lowepro smaller bag in the park. :confused:

This is good information. We're taking a big family trip to Disney in December and I was struggling to decide what to take. It seems that the consensus is to go light as possible or even just go with a p&s.

I tried to bounce my flash off the ceiling once. Left a mark on the ceiling and broke my flash.

I definately agree with going light....Not to sure about p&s. Each situation is different. With 8 adults...parents of their kids, going, i have the affordability to have some one hold my bag if i go on a ride....so I am going light....w/30d, flash, 17-40 and my 50 1.4...(unless....huge unless, I can scrounge up for a 24-105:Dor 24-70 2.8:lol:). Still i am not sure about a pod or tripod yet. May just have to video the fireworks for convenience in lieu of traveling the tripod.

Can't speak for Disney Land (never been there) but Disney World allows Tripods, I didn't realize this until after I'd come home (of course) and noticed someone had posted some great firework shots & I asked about the tripod.

As for a tripod, that is about the only reason to bring one, my monopod suited me fine for all the other shots (plus I sprained my ankle while we were there, the monopod doubled as a crutch for two days ;)

Disneyland allows tripods

also if you want to get right in front of sleeping beauty castle to watch the firework show be prepared to find a spot and wait there 30 minutes to an hour before the show...
