    I'm aware there are kiddie play areas, including water play @ the theme parks and would like to know how best to prepare my 4 yr old daughter for this area of play? I worry about her soaking up and then not being comfortable to enjoy the rides.

    Hi, Natalie!   My kids are now 9 and 6, and I still carry an extra set of clothes for them when I go into the parks.   Between the fountains, attractions with water, and Mickey ice cream bars melting down the front of them, they can become a real mess!    I usually keep a gallon sized ziploc bag for each of them in my backpack with a fresh set of clothes (I only do this when it is hot, the messes and water disasters seem less when the weather is cooler!)  This way, if they mess up what they are wearing, they can change into something clean and dry, then the yucky, wet, or dirty stuff gets zipped away into a bag.  

    Once you flatten the air out of the bag, this takes up very little room in your backpack or tote and is well worth it for those unexpected moments!  

    Have a great time on your WDW vacation!
