Can't help too much.  Everyone approaches the resorts differently.  The kit lens would work well for general day time walk-around uses, for people as it always does, etc.  Not as optimal for dark conditions.  If I were considering a faster lens for inside the rides, and just general use as well, I'd want wider than the 30-35mm range.  The more stuff you take, the more you need to carry along.  Swapping lenses isn't difficult but it's going to delay things some, needs at least a bit of space.

I'm close to the California resorts.  You see people with all kinds of kits, including many using only their phones, tablets once in a while and fill on multi-camera dslr kits as well.

Photopass is a decent option (not sure what the prices are now) but they tend to have photographers scattered all over the parks, in good areas for shots, around characters, etc.  Can be handy when you want some of the iconic locations and to include yourself as well.

I believe it is 80~100 for unlimited photos. But it is hands down a great value. I think we got over a hundred photos (each photo area will take 3~10 photos) in June over 2 days. Many keepers. All without handing your camera over to someone to get you in the photo.
