    What are your suggestions for keeping hydrated at theme parks without spending a fortune? Meal tip: Purchase a double cheeseburger meal, buy or ask for extra bun. Makes 2 burgers! At MGM, kids meal comes with keepable Mickey Plate!

    Hi, Beth!  Thanks for the tip about the burgers! 

    My husband is former military, and my daughter has been active in the US Navy Sea Cadet Corps.  Both of them rely heavily on a personal hydration system by CamelBak, a company that specializes in these types of devices.  There is an initial cost up front, but these things last forever, are easy to carry, and can be filled and refilled.  They are used by the military, law enforcement, and athletes like runners and bikers.

    If you are looking for something simpler, you just have to bring your own water bottles and fill them as you empty them.  There are fountains everywhere throughout the theme parks. 

    Thanks again for your tip!
