Backpack Checklist When Visiting Theme Parks

Backpacks for theme parks? Yes, you read it right. A backpack is something you should bring the next time you visit an adventure park. Bringing a backpack can make you save precious dollars and lessen the worries as you spend an entire day going around an amusement park. Here are the things that you should put in your backpack for your upcoming trip to Disneyland or any other theme park for that matter: 

1. Water-resistant purse

By storing them in a water-proof zipped bag! This is chiefly helpful if you don’t have any friend or family member whom you can entrust your belongings. 

2. Water bottle

3. Sunscreen

5. Change of Clothes

Whether you are with a group of adults or you are bringing your kids for the ride, you should always prepare for the worst, so to speak. Have an extra shirt, small towel and even pants just in case you find yourself wet after a water ride. And after all that walking you made, you’ll be too sweaty  at the end of the day that you would want to change outfit. 

6. Snacks

7. Camera

Finally, don’t forget to bring your camera! Whether it’s a digital single-lens reflex (D-SLR) type or a simple point-and-shoot one, a camera is your best buddy. Use your camera as soon as you arrive by taking a photo of where you parked your car. This way, you’ll easily find your vehicle when it’s time to leave.
