The very first thing you should do is check out the park for the theme park, you can usually get these online through the theme park’s website. Take a look at the map and decide which areas you want to see so you can figure out a path to make your way around to see everything you want to. Traveling lightly is the key to getting around the park fuss-free too.
Here’s a checklist with everything you need to have a fuss-free day at the park.
A good backpack or travel bag is perfect for the trip to a theme park so leave that purse or handbag at home and give yourself a little break. With a good backpack or travel bag you can go hands-free and carry even more. Just be careful not to fill the bag too full (use travel size items) that way your back doesn’t suffer.
Water & Snacks
Bring healthy snacks and water to the park. This will it help you save money because you won’t be eating those expensive snacks at the park. You can also keep up your energy throughout the day by snacking on healthy items and drinking water throughout the day. Tip: Put your water bottles in the freezer the night before to keep your water cold while you enjoy your day at the park.
Here’s an extra tip: get yourself a collapsible water bottle for easy storage and it will take up less space in your pack.
Since covering a theme park can take all day to cover, you don’t want to lose your method of communication or, if you’re like me, your camera. Having a portable charger will make sure your phone or other electronics will never go dead. They’re easy to find and you can find one that charges more than one device at a time.
Plastic bags can help keep your backpack organized, they can provide some protection for your electronics, and you can keep your change of clothes in them or even use them for trash. They’re good to have on hand especially if there is rain in the forecast for your day around the park.
Basic First-Aid Supplies
It’s always a good bet to carry first-aid supplies with you, no matter where you go. You definitely don’t want to pay theme park prices for these because of the cost. Just bring a few bandages, antibiotic ointment, pain pills, gauze pads, tweezers, etc.
You can avoid shelling out the big bucks for a poncho inside the park by bringing your own. It’s perfect for those water rides or if it rains.
