disposable. Cloth may be cheaper in the long run but building up a stash we just don't have the $ to do it. I always buy disposables on sale and so works out great as we just buy occasionally when needed. I thought about cloth but DH didn't want to and I really don't like the idea of always cleaning out poop.
Cloth. We started out with a stash of 40+ flat diapers and 6 covers when she was itty bitty. We found one fold that worked for us and stuck with it. Now that she's a bit older we have a stash of 26 bumgenius 4.0s and have packed away the flats and covers for the next kid to come along. I like to stuff them with prefolds though because I hate microfiber. I do the laundry (both washing and folding/stuffing) every other day. Once you find something that works for you it really isn't that much extra time. This is especially true if you use pockets...once they are stuffed they go on just like a disposable.
THE reason why we went with cloth though was to save money. Our stash is not the cheapest way to go (especially with buying both the pocket diapers and the prefolds to stuff them with), but they have already been used for enough changes that we're saving money. They're starting to pay for themselves.
