A must have for any bag you pack to bring into the parks with you are Ziploc bags. These lightweight additions have the possibility to save you a ton of money and make life a lot easier.
Water rides, such as Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids, and electronics, such as your new iPhone, camera, or chargers, do not mix! Before jumping on these rides, tuck these items into a resealable bag and save yourself the heartache of your brand new smartphone going for a swim. Additionally, if you tuck your sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and water bottle into a gallon size Ziploc bag, you will save yourself the hassle of having to rinse off or wring out the other items in your bag when of of these bottles leaks.
Ziploc bags can save you hundreds when it comes to your electronics, but they can also save you money while in the parks as well. Many snacks are too large to eat in one sitting, especially for children. Specialty apples and other snacks can be tucked into a resealable bag and saved for later. By throwing away less food, you will save money and save on your snack credits as well.
I also like to keep my trading pins and Vinylmations in a Ziploc so I can easily pull them out for a fast trade. This beats digging into the depths of my backpack to find that loose pin I want to get rid of.
So go ahead, be a super organizer and save yourself a ton of money and stress.
