If you have small children it’s a good idea, if not a fashion statement to be brightly clad.  It is a huge understatement to say that there are a lot of people at Theme parks.  Being able to spot the members of your group quickly is a great thing.

One day, we were in line waiting for the park to open, and ended up in two groups. (not sure how that happened) The group that was farther back in line spotted the group that was closer to the front.  The back-of-the-liners  spontaneously decided to mosey up to the closer group and join them.  This was a great idea only they didn’t communicate this movement to the 7 year-old that was standing with them.  When the group arrived at the front of the line, I instinctively performed one of the dozens of head-counts for the trip, and noticed that aforementioned 7 year-old was missing.  In a single glance, her puzzled, lonely-looking, not-yet-scared self was spotted and immediately retrieved.  The fact that she was wearing a bright yellow t-shirt made it possible to find her quickly.  My Husband and I also had on those adorable yellow shirts so the kids could find us in a crowd too.  These shirts were purchased at Hobby Lobby, I think we paid $2.49 for the kids sized ones and $3.49 for ours (minus 30% because they were on sale)
