Whenever you go take a kagoul for the rain, light clothes for the heat and a warm jacket and jeans in case it is cold at night.

We needed mosquito repellent when we went in October but were not bothered by them when we went in May or November. It might have been because there was a "heatwave" in October mind!!!!

Enjoy your trip.

Walkie talkies are handy if your group needs to split up in the parks, or if you have older teens who might want to go off ahead.

3. Re: what to take

One thing that I wished that I had packed was a tube of a good hand cream. At the parks I was washing my hands and using anti-bacterial gel constantly and my hands became terribly dry. The lotion given at the hotel was cheap and did no good to soothe my cracked skin.

Another thing that comes in handy is plastic baggies. We carried a few into the park and when my young daughter did not finish her nuggets/burger/whatever for lunch we packed it up and, 10 minutes later when she was "starving!" again we whipped it out and she munched in the stroller as we went on with our day.

I would always pack sunscreen. No matter what the weather, one can get a burn.

That baggie tip is a great idea!

Also I used to always pack little bags of snacks if you have kids- like fruit snacks. The little snacks can certainly add up when you have little ones.

Also, I would, of course pack a camera with extra batteries, if it is digital. Batteries can be expensive at the parks.

Depending when you are coming, you will need to pack clothes in layers. The weather is extremely changeable this time of year. It can go from hot to kind of cold pretty quickly. I would pack a light jacket or hoodie for the evenings.

But most of all- No Worries- you can get anything you may have forgotten pretty easily.
