Hi Rei,
You know I always say it's "KISS and life is easy."

This is my routine as I've done it this way more times than I can count nor 

Put your film and gear in your regular shoulder bag and when you get to the 
carry on baggage inspection put the bag on the belt and send it on it's way.

Go through the body scan, pick -up your bag and on your way.

Sometimes the inspectors want to swab or look inside the bag. No big deal, 
smile and open the bag as requested, say nothing. They'll do their thing 
with the swab and send you on your way to the plane. :-)

Don't be concerned about the film as nothing is going to happen to it! Be 
happy and enjoy your time at Disneyland you'll have a great time and some 
great picture opportunities! :-)

Been there done it! :-) My Grand daughter was completely blown away. Quite 
frankly so was I. ;-)
