DH can keep our KTTW cards, DLs, and CC in a pocket in his swim trunks, but I'm not sure where to keep the other stuff while we're enjoying the water park. Any 411 would be appreciated!
Throwing this out there: do you even need a locker? It would be quite typical/ordinary/normal for you to skip the change of clothes, and just get back and forth to the port in t-shirt, flip flops, and cover-up. You could get a small waterproof credit card holder for the cards/cash you'll be carrying and leave the cover-up, etc, on a lounge chair. You can get/swap-out as many towels as you like, so you could skip the whole step of locking things up.

I've been going to Atlantis annually for vacations for 10+ years, and we've never gotten a locker. We don't bring anything of significant value down to the swimming areas, and just leave our stuff on chairs while we are out and about.

He ended up using the lockers and was hugely grateful to us for pointing them out. I can pm you with a map highlighting where the lockers near us were if you'd like.
I would love a copy of the map. Thank you!

Thanks for the suggestion. I hate sitting in a car in wet clothes, though, so I will definitely want to take a change of clothes! I'm happy to hear that there are plenty of towels and lounge chairs. Should be a great day.

Just a note about the lockers....be aware that the keys can be removed without the locker actually being locked! When we were there in 2011, we placed our camera, sunglasses, shoes, etc. in the locker, my husband twisted the key and removed it. When we returned hours later, all of our stuff was gone! Fortunately, one of the attendants had removed our things and had taken them to lost and found, but we had to walk clear across the property to retrieve them, and the panic we felt when we thought everything was gone sure spoiled the mood. Also, we were lucky no one really stole our things, because it sure would have been easy!
