Re: 35mm f/2 (IS)

I love my 35 f/2 IS--but given your purposes, initial budget, and the fact that you already own a 50 f1.8, I would recommend that you go with the lit 24-105L f/4 IS. The 35 and 50 focal lengths will give you very similar points of view (though the 35 does add IS). The 24-105 is a very fine and versatile lens, and the full frame will give you the ability to use higher ISO speeds in low light to get the shots you want at f/4. It will be great for Disneyland and travel. You can always add another lens later, say next Christmas or for your birthday, when you know more what you want your next lens to be.
