5. Proper Shoes
They might not be your cutest pair, but reach for your comfortable, closed-toed shoes and your feet will thank you. Bloody stubbed toes may not exactly be a “disaster” but they certainly aren’t fun on a trip that requires so much walking. Also, at water parks shoes may not be required (like they are at all times in the regular parks) but water shoes may be a good choice. My four year old got a monster splinter at Blizzard Beach last summer, making us both wish he’d worn water shoes.
