Yep, the family is going to Disney World for a week, and none of us have ever been. (FYI, kids are 8 & 6)

Anything I should be aware of? Should I forget about my dSLR and just use my Canon 850IS? I can see where keeping up with a dSLR would be a pain!

Are cameras prohibited anywhere?

Any tips would be appreciated.

Bring the SLR, I think it's definitely worth it.

I shoot at the parks all the time, tons of people bring dSLR's. I get some great "street" shots there, landscapes, animal shots, just about everything you can think of.

Never had anyone say anything to me about cameras, and we go at least 4 times a month. I usually bring a tripod too, set it up and all. No one even notices.

Most attractions there you can simply wear it around your neck with no problems. Pretty sure it's allowed everywhere. If you want to ride something where it might get thrown around there are lockers all over. Definitely have to get the postcard pic of the kids in front of cinderella's castle.

Thanks for the recommendations.

A number of the rides have good places to stick a DSLR while you're riding. I remember that "Soaring" had somewhat of a drawer beneath the seat where I was able to stick my camera. I wouldn't hesitate to bring the SLR along.

I had the same question when I went last summer. My kids were the same age as well. The only day I took my dSLR was when we went to Animal Kingdom. I used a P&S the rest of the time. This allowed me to turn around and shoot some quick shots of my kids on the rides. Plus other people could use it to get shots of all of us. These are two things I would never had done with my dSLR. Some of the pictures turned out fairly decent for a P&S. Here are a few that were shot with the P&S.

Again it is up to you. My thoughts were I wanted to enjoy the time there with my family. When I have my camera it tends to take over sometimes. The P&S allowed me to capture the moment without getting so sucked in. In any aspect it is a great place.
