We are fortunate enough to have received annual passes to Walt Disney World for Christmas this year, so we headed out for our first visit recently. Planning only a half-day since we can go back when ever we want this year. Here’s what’s on my packing list for the day:
- Fanny sack (driver’s licenses, cash, Credit Card)
- Camera (with charged battery)
- Cell phones
- Bottle water
- Juice box
- Diaper bag (check to make sure diapers are in it)
- Change of clothes for toddler
- Flip-flops for the water area
- Tylenol (I always need one at some point in the day)
- Baby blanket to cover stroller
One of the most important rules we have in our family is that everyone wears tennis shoes to the theme parks. We spend all day on our feet and need to protect them and make sure everyone is comfortable all day long. The flip-flops are for the areas where our son can splash through water so he doesn’t have to go barefoot. You’d be surprised by what we see on people’s feet at theme parks: All I can say is, “ouch! My dogs hurt!”
Take this list to heart if you are going to any type of day event — it doesn’t have to be a theme park. Proper planning can make the difference between an enjoyable day spent together vs. a day spent looking for things you’d wish you brought — or worse, days spent nursing sunburned children and adults!
