  1. I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen this. When coming out of a ride and it’s raining, all the uncovered strollers. I feel sorry for the poor child who has to sit in a soaking wet stroller. Parents, be sure to pack a cover for your stroller. Might be best in invest in a made for stroller cover. Some people will try using a poncho to cover the stroller which can easily blow off. Some stroller rentals have covers you can rent as well. Plus, all the items you left on the stroller won’t get wet and it might deter a hungry squirrel looking for a snack.

  2. Yeah… NO

    Frequent visitor here. What you’ll regret is lugging around a bunch of stuff. How about a little outdoor training before you go, so you can take some heat and don’t blister from a small walk?

    The #1 essential, which I don’t see very often, is a broad brimmed, well ventilated hat. That not only keeps the sun and rain at bay, but preserves your energy level from being sapped by the direct heat on your cabasa. A small tube of quality 60SPF sunblock for re-application if needed and you’re ready to roll.

    Water? Fountains by every bathroom. Blister? Guest Experience folks all have bandages. Rain? Wear quick-dry layers, although a back-pocket poncho doesn’t take much space if it gives you peace of mind. Long-sleeve fishing type shirts, that are quick-dry, ventilated and can roll up or down sleeves to control sun exposure are my go-to. Quick-dry cargo shorts and quick-dry base layers complete the gear you need to stay comfortable and protected. If you enjoy walking around in soaked cotton tighty whiteys after Kali River Rapids or an unexpected storm, okay.

    Hauling around a backpack full of stuff may seem like good prep, but once you minimize and comfortize, you’ll never be a sunburnt, overheated mule again.

  3. I’m pretty sure all these pricey things can be gotten alternatively and definitely cheaper. As for fans. Are you allowed a spraybottle? I always wet my cap to keep cool or get a froggtoggs type neckwrap which can be kept in a baggie when not needed. And there are plenty of stores near Disney to pick up stuff you won’t need to pack and drag along.
