Our friends had a work outing at Lagoon and we were able to go together. Our sons are 3 weeks apart in age and this was our first experience taking our tiny humans to an amusement park.
I'm gonna be perfectly honestly and upfront - I over packed.
I over packed hard-core. Stroller, clicky car seat to click into stroller, hat, cooler containing water and snackies, Mei Tai carrier, and the Diaper Bag. The diaper bag was overpacked : 2 outfits, sun screen, light blanket, little baby jacket, 3 toys, changing mat, wet bag, diapers, wipes, and my water bottle.
It really hot in the high 90s so I wasn't quite sure if we would overheat alot. I was prepared to safely babywear in the summer : cool cloths for us, frequent nursing, hat, and finding shade. Since it was the first time I wanted the option of the stroller.
Our friends were equally prepared with stroller, cooler, and diaper bag.
We used the strollers for a while. Then one of us was still using the stroller. Then both strollers weren't in use. They eventually made great cup holders and stuff holders while we baby wore.

We were able to ride the Ferris Wheel babywearing! Super cool, right?! The operator didn't bat an eye when asked.
Throughout the day a few other moms were babywearing. One poor mom had a stretchy wrap on! She looked so hot in addition to the material itself it was black.Then there was a dad babywearing (yay!) who was using an uncomfortable looking diaper hip hanging carrier.
Has anyone else gone to an amusement park and baby wore? Or did you go halfsies and have a stroller with you too?
Would love to hear about your experience in the comments!
