    We enjoyed the water parks last year and loved it, but we had some issues with rashes on legs from all the walking around with wet swimsuits and skin! Even swim trunks being so long on our son caused him problems. Any hints/ideas to help prevent this?

    Hi, Stacy! There are some great anti-chafing gels out there that work great in this situation.  You can buy them at runner's shops.  Obviously, you will want to be sure the one you invest in is waterproof.  Protect all the places that skin and swimsuits rub together with a thin layer of one of these gels.  You may have to reapply mid-day, but the short amount of time that takes saves lots of hurt later.  Monistat (better known for other kinds of creams) makes a chafing-relief powder-gel that you can pick up in any drug store to alleviate the irritation if it does happen.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
