I've got a Flip. It's ok for quick videos around the house but I wouldn't want to try to use it a WDW. Here's why:
- No replaceable storage. You can't swap a memory card in or out. You've got to use your PC to offload the videos once you fill it up.
- Batteries aren't replaceable. You've got to recharge it via the USB dongle on it. Usually by plugging it into your PC/Mac.
Those are the main reasons. Like I said, it's great around the house but I wouldn't want to depend on it at WDW.
On our last trip to WDW (MNSSHP last year), I had pretty good luck with my little Canon D10. I bought it to have a easily portable point and shoot that was weather resistant. As a side benefit, it takes reasonable video. And it's got a battery and memory card that can be changed out on the fly. So... fill up a card with video, take it out and put another one in. Here's a short video I shot with it during the MNSSHP parade.

That was just free hand shooting around and over Slowhand's head.
If I'd know then how well the camera worked on video, I would have used it to take a whole lot more videos. Next time!
