Given that it is summer, and hotter than ever at many of the theme parks as they are opening back up, it may be a good idea to bring multiple masks on your trip. That way you can replace them throughout the day if they are to become sweaty. It also lowers the problems that could happen should you lose a mask on an attraction.

Avoid Sunglasses (Or Regular Glasses)

Obviously, this is not going to be a solution for everyone, but if possible it would be better to not wear glasses. Wearing a mask causes glasses to fog up, which is just a constant pain. If possible, switch over to contact lenses or just avoid wearing sunglasses. Bring a baseball hat instead.

Try Different Kinds of Masks
