4. Water Bottle and Snacks
Hydration is just as important as sun protection when spending the day in the Florida sun. For this reason, you will definitely want to bring a refillable water bottle and have it refilled often at one of the food stops in the park.
Additionally, you may want to bring in some snacks. Water play can make you pretty hungry, and having something to munch on between meals can be a lifesaver.
5. Floaties and Goggles
Have little ones in tow? If so, you might want to bring their favorite arm floaties or life vest along. These will help keep them comfortable in the water throughout the day. Of course, if you happen to forget this particular item, you can always take advantage of the free life vest rentals offered by the parks.
In addition to floaties, you might also want to grab a pair of goggles for anyone in your party who happens to have sensitive eyes. This is sure to keep everyone just a little bit happier in the long run.
6. Flip-Flops or Water Shoes
While it is perfectly acceptable to wander the water parks barefoot, many people prefer not to do this. The pavement can be awfully hot during especially warm days, and sensitive feet may not appreciate it. For this reason, you might want to stick some flip-flops or water shoes in your bag.
Flip-flops are a bit of a hassle because you will be required to take them off for every attraction. Meanwhile, water shoes can be worn on slides and into the wave pool and lazy river.
7. Resealable Plastic Bags
The thing about water parks is you’re going to get wet. This means your stuff will likely get wet too. Resealable plastic bags can help you keep your phone, money, and other items you want to keep dry from becoming soaked. Just make sure to buy the heavy duty kind, and go ahead and pack an extra to put your wet swimsuit in.
