    What should we pack to go to the water parks?, and what we can rent inside, we are just a very practical family and don't like to carry a lot of things around... Any special events going on between July 19-25?

    Hi Gabriela,

    The water parks are a place where you'll certainly want to travel light. Depending on your family's needs, I'd bring a small wallet or purse with a credit card. A swimsuit is of course a must. My boys also wear swim shirts. Water shoes are a must for me because the pavement can get super hot.  Bring sunscreen & use it often. You may want to bring a hat or visor.  You'll also want a towel for each of you but you can rent one for around $2.00 each if you don't want to bring your own. Swim diapers are required for those not potty-trained.

    If you feel like you want to bring more you can bring in coolers, food, strollers & towels. There are small & large lockers for rent. You can not bring in rafts or other air-filled toys. Inner tubes are available at no charge.  Standard life jackets are also available at no charge but you'd need to leave a driver's license or credit card as a deposit. If you forget something, not to worry - there are merchandise locations that carry almost everything you'll need.

    During your trip, the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series at Epcot will be in full swing.  This series features a lineup of tribute bands in the American Gardens Theatre. Showtimes are 5:45 p.m., 7:00 p.m. & 8:15 p.m.  Here's the line-up during your visit:

    * July 17 - 23: Karin Lawson - A Tribute to Janet Jackson
    * July 24 - 30: 2U - A Tribute to U2

    If you're an WDW Annual Passholder, be sure to check out the "Sizzling Summer Sale" at the World of Disney store at Downtown Disney on July 23, 2011 from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Select merchandise will be on sale for up to 75% off.  A valid Annual Passholder ID &  government issued photo ID must be presented to enter during those times.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
