    I will be visiting WDW 6/5/11 through 6/11/11. it will be my 6 & 7 year old boys first visit. i have purchased swim wear shirts so they wont burn and be miserable can they wear these at the water parks and in the resort pools?

    Hi Angela,

    Congratulations on your sons' first visit!  I am sure they are super excited and they should be - they'll have the times of their lives!

    Swim shirts are an awesome idea and yes, your boys can wear them at the water parks and in the resort pools.  The Florida sun can be intense and swim shirts are a great way to help prevent sunburn.

    Here are some other helpful tips regarding what to wear at the water parks:

    • 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.
    • Wearing water shoes is a good idea when visiting Disney Water Parks and getting to your resort pool.  The ground can get super hot and so will your feet!
    • Wearing sunscreen is strongly advised - don't forget the tops of your ears and feet.  I also bring some after sun lotion to put on after we return to the resort and shower.  Your skin will thank you!
    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
