Season Passes Tips

  • Supervise young children vigilantly, especially children under 5 - accompany children under 5 on the carousel.

  • See Safety tips for Using Public Washrooms

  • See Safety Tips for visiting Petting Zoos and Farms.

  • Make Sure all family members practice sun safety - click Sun Safety for more information

  • Make sure Children know what to do if they get lost - stay where they are or go to a concession or park staff member and ask to be taken to lost and found.  With older children pick a time and place to gather if they are exploring the park on their own.

  • If children are old enough, pick a spot in the park, near the entrance, to meet at designated times.

  • Dress children in bright colours so they are easily visible

  • Wear lightweight layered clothes and comfortable shoes.  A hat is a must but take it off on the rides. A jacket may be needed for nighttime and may be stored in a locker.

  • Insect repellent may also be needed.  See

  • Tips for Using Insect Repellents - Tips for Using Deet Products with Children

  • Teach children to keep an eye on you.

  • Check height restrictions before you line up for a ride to ensure that the ride is safe for children  (these restrictions are recommended for safety sake).  The Park map may also show height restrictions.  Don't coax children onto a ride they are unsure of or are too small for the seat/seatbelt.

  • Avoid rides that go in reverse.  

  • Use a fanny pack or backpack to keep hands free to hold little children or grab hold on the wild rides.

  • Drink lots of water to help keep your energy level up.  

  • A disposable wipe or frozen cloth in a zipper bag can help cool someone down and reduce nausea.

  • Bring along a stroller or rent a stroller at the park.  See Tips for Purchasing, Renting and Using Travel Equipment for Babies.

  • Look for discounts on admission or buy tickets in advance at reduced costs.  Many Attraction web sites have a discount coupon.

  • If you travelling from Canada to the United States, look for Canadian Dollar at par deals - especially Walt Disney World® Resort,   but check for date and time restrictions for visits.  Visit Travel News - Family Attractions for special deals.

  • Ensure everyone has a good breakfast or is well fed before you enter the park and take some healthy snacks and drinks with you.  You can also save a lot of money by having lunch in your car  or an outside picnic area if possible - make sure you get your hands stamped before you leave the park.

  • Consider ordering kiddy meals if possible to save on cost or eat in the kiddy land.

  • If there are rides you can get wet on but don't want to, take along garbage bags to cover everyone - put a hole in the top for the head and at the sides for the arms - be careful when placing bag over head - make sure the holes are already in the bag - saves buying a raincoat and these can be discarded after they have served their purpose.

  • Avoid buying overpriced souvenirs, but if you must, consider buying a Christmas tree ornament (brings back the memory of the trip every Christmas) or have each child pick out a postcard or pin to become part of a collection.  These are small, easy to carry and can even be purchased as soon as you enter the park to avoid hearing "can I buy something" all day long.  Even a T-shirt makes a great souvenir.

  • Try to get a map of the park ahead of time and study it.  If you are early enough at the park, go to the back and work your way forward to avoid crowds.  Guide Books may also be available.  Check the Web Sites for Attractions for maps and park tips.

  • Try to maintain a sense of humour and have fun.  Take breaks to reduce fatigue.

  • Consider carrying your stuff in a back pack or small shoulder bag so hands are free - click on the link for information on a recommended Kids Travel Product

  • When travelling with babies, have plenty of bottles handy and keep them cool. 

  • If you have young children - go to the kiddy land first so they are fresh and enjoy the rides.

  • Try to go on early in the week instead of the weekend when parks are busier.

  • Arrive as early as possible, enjoy the rides while a parade is on and eat an early lunch to avoid the crowds and enjoy the rides during lunch hour when it is less crowed.

  • Bring a Stroller or Rent a stroller - even if your kids are older, you can use it for souvenirs and back packs.  Many Amusement Parks have them available.  Consider taking a baby carrier with you to offer babies a change of scenery and position.

  • Visit animal exhibits early as animals are most active in the morning or see if you can find out when feeding time is.   See Petting Zoo and Animal Exhibit Safety Tips

  • Don't forget the camera and film, but if you do, visit a souvenir shop and pick up a disposable camera.

  • Wear comfortable leather or cotton shoes so feet breathe.  Also cotton socks, changed half-way through the day will freshen feet and reduce fatigue.  See Tips for Happy Feet while Travelling.  See Pool and Beach Safety Tips for suggestions on treating and avoiding Athlete's foot.

  • Bring the bathing suits and towels if a water area is at the park.  Store them in a locker until needed.  Don't forget the sunscreen and practice Sun Safety.

  • Take the time to enjoy a show.  This offers everyone a chance to rest.

School's out, and kids are excited as they rush into summer. To keep your family active and avoid the dreaded refrain of "I'm bored," it's important to plan your summer activities now.

There are many options for daytrips in and around Toronto, but most families have a limited entertainment budget. A terrific way to stretch your dollar is to invest in a season pass to a local park or attraction. With a little research, and by asking the right questions, you can choose the perfect season pass to keep your kids happy all summer long.

Here are some things to consider when comparing season pass offers:

Location:

Making several trips to the park is the key to getting the most value from your season pass. Is the venue convenient? Is it accessible by public transit or only by car? Many parks provide parking discounts to pass holders, and some attractions offer free shuttle service from the subway.

Special Events:

As much fun as a trip to the amusement park can be, your kids will get bored if it's the same thing every time. Look for parks that offer a number of special events throughout the summer. For example, Ontario Place hosts the annual Festival of Fire fireworks series, but also offers events like Toronto Sports Weeks and Today's Parent KidSummer programming.

Age Appropriateness:

Make sure your pass will meet the needs of your entire family. Choose a park that offers a number of activities such as live entertainment, water parks, and games the whole family can enjoy. More is not necessarily better if the options, rides and attractions do not suit your family.

Value:

Ask about all the ways you can get value for your dollar. Some parks allow you to bring your own food, and many season pass holders get discounts on food and souvenirs from the park. Some attractions offer discounts on day camps or educational offerings. Ask about everything a pass includes before making your decision.

Tips for choosing the perfect season pass

  • Visit the park once before investing in a whole season

  • See if you can use your one-time admission towards an upgrade to a season pass
  • Check the park for cleanliness, safety, and customer service
  • Ask the kids what they think during your trial visit
  • Find out about special events throughout the season
  • Get a list of everything included in your season pass, such as discounts on other activities the park offers, like day camp or educational programs
