Water is your best friend on a theme park visit
Written by Robert Niles
Spending a few days in Central Florida last week reminded me how crucial water is to enjoying a theme park vacation.Tweet
Water not only helps keep you cool, it protects your skin from damage in the sun. Best of all, it's cheap - even free. Every family visiting a theme park this summer should make water a part of its vacation strategy.
Here are some tips for how you can use water to help you have a more enjoyable theme park vacation.
Start drinking extra water two days before your trip
Select a water bottle to bring to the park
Fill your bottle with ice on the morning of your trip
Take advantage of free refills
Drink water with every meal
You especially don't need the extra expense, dehydrating effect, or brain-numbing of alcohol. If you drink, save it for home or hotel, after your day in the park.
Drink water at least once in between each meal
Again, don't wait until you are thirsty. Schedule water into your day, and don't forget. By carrying your own bottles, you won't need to take time away from anything else on your schedule to enjoy your water breaks.
Drinking water throughout the day also helps keep tummies full, cutting down on requests for expensive mid-day snacks.
Something that keeps you healthy, happy and saves you money, too? What's not to like? So make water an essential part of your theme park vacation plans this summer.
