10 items to prepare when visiting an Orlando theme park.
And so you’ve received your groups tickets, you’ve booked the travel and also the room, at present all you require to focus on is packing. “But hang on. Just what items does someone need to take to a theme park?” I overhear you ponder.
Listed below I am going to inform you the most important ten things that you should be sure to take to the parks with you.
Sun screen lotion
This might be the most vital thing to take into account! Florida can usually get rather darn hot, even throughout the winter months. Even when the sun isn’t shining, it is still possible to get sunburnt through clouds. Pack it!
To bring a reusable bottle of water (or any liquid in fact) may be a total lifesaver throughout those very hot days outside. Whenever you’ve consumed it all, you can go to a nearby water fountain and refill it and reuse it a second time.
Advice: We usually freeze our beverages (non-carbonated) any time we head to the theme parks. This lets them to remain freezing cold all day.
You probably would be amazed at how many people actually forget their digital camera. Indeed most of the parks have photographers (that demand big money for prints) but when you desire to shoot your own photographic memories, remember that camera! There are often signs presenting photograph opportunities and also character meet and greets.
Comfy Walking Sneakers
Take into account how many miles you will be walking in the course of one day. You will likely overlook how much you actually travel, because you are going to be having too much fun! Nevertheless wearing uncomfortable shoes not to mention getting blisters all over your feet really can spoil your day. This is also true for the kids as they could get really cranky!
Or even a credit card. You are going to most definitely have to carry some cash with you. There could be a heck of a lot of shopping to be done. Wouldn’t it be a shame if you forgot your wallet? A majority of you can purchase in the Orlando theme parks are unlike regular theme parks. A lot of parks sell a great deal of junk that you REALLY shouldn’t buy! Yet at the Orlando theme parks (in particular EPCOT) there is plenty of really cool merchandise you can purchase.
Occasionally while working at EPCOT I would ring a person up for their purchases, then they would give me their credit card that is unsigned… At the moment Disney have a rule in which we can’t take unsigned credit cards without an ID (drivers license or passport). Furthermore if you wish to drink alcoholic beverages (and are of course over twenty-one) then you need proof of your age. Specifically while “drinking around the world” at EPCOT.
Zip Lock Food Baggy
A food bag?! Is that dude for real? Definitely! Although not to put food in. Imagine this. You’re on a wet attraction heading down the final drop, your raft plunges into the waters and thus covers you completely. But wait a second! You kept your phone in your pocket and now it’s completely water logged and also won’t turn on. Wouldn’t it be truly wonderful those of you that brought a zip lock food baggy to leave it in so it would be guarded against water? Pack it!
And precisely what good might a food bag be without the cell phone? Though more importantly, what will happen if you ever lose your youngsters in the crowds and you do not have a way to be contacted? (Don’t panic – happens every day and security are prepared). Ok so the simplest way to prepare for this is to get a pen and then write your phone number on your kids arms so that they won’t forget your number to make contact with you. Be sure to say to them that IF you get separated to go to a theme park staff member and tell them you have to contact the number on their arm. You will soon be back together.
Poncho/ Rain Jacket
Obviously they sell them inside the park, but then again they also charge mega bucks for them. My finest advice is simply to buy them from Walmart or Publix. The average price at the theme parks is approximately $8. Walmart selling price? $1.
Cool Fact: Did you know that Disney keep their ponchos shut away in a cupboard until it rains? When they see the storms they make a crazy dash to put out all the ponchos. Time to make a few bucks for the Mouse… But seriously. Buy them from Walmart. They might not be the best quality nevertheless will save the 7 bucks.
Change of Clothes (including under-wear) or even a Swimsuit
Remember earlier on after you were plunged into water on the water ride and got utterly soaked? Well contemplate having to go around all day long with soaking wet clothing! I’ve done it before. Sure the warm sunshine will dry you slightly, however if you don’t take a change of clothes you will be quite unhappy for a couple hrs. And you’re supposed to be having fun!
