    Are regular t-shirts or swim suit cover ups, or even rash guards aloud on slides at the water parks?

    Hi Rachel,

    There is no specific prohibition against wearing cover-ups on the slides at the water parks, though I've never seen someone wearing one while actually on a slide.

    I have often seen guests wearing t-shirts in the water park attractions. My husband routinely wears at rash guard at the water parks and I routinely wear water shorts over my swimsuit and neither of us has ever had any problem.

    There are a few regulations that you should be aware of. The WDW website states:
    • Proper dress is required.
    • Swim attire with rivets, buckles or exposed metal is not permitted on the water attractions.
    • Wetsuits are not permitted on body slides.
    • One-piece swimsuits are recommended on the more thrilling waterslides, like the Summit Plummet attraction.
    • Wearing water shoes is a good idea when visiting Disney Water Parks; the ground can get hot and so will your feet!

    The restriction on the water slides against rivets, buckles and exposed metal is enforced. This is to prevent damage to the slide surface. I've seen people with zippers on their swimsuits turned away.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
