For smaller children, write your phone number in permanent marker on their upper arm or stomach (they have wristbands but I always think that those can tear off). Be sure to write it on a place where it can be covered by their clothes. Also, point out security or staff to let them know that if they do get separated from you that these are people to approach. For older kids, chose a place to meet in case they get separated.
Bring cash. Some of the vendors do not take debit/credit cards.
