Summer Vacation At The Walt Disney World Resort
As the weather heats up and the school year ends, people's thoughts turn to their summer vacations.
Summer is when many families choose to vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
For those not used to Florida's very hot sun and frequent, but brief afternoon rain showers, not being prepared can ruin what should be one of the best vacations of your life.
Only WDWorld is going to share with you several tips to ensure that you have a great summer vacation at Disney World.
Summer WDW Vacation Planning Tips
Here are some tips to help you have a fantastic summer vacation:
Plan to get to the parks each day when they open (also referred to as “rope drop”). You want to do this for three reasons:
- The parks are cooler during the morning, so take advantage of it.
- The parks are the least crowded when they first open and crowds are typically low for the first 2 -3 hours each day. You can get to ride the most popular rides before the crowds settle in later in the day.
Give The Kids A Ride
If you have young children, bring a portable umbrella stroller to give them a place to rest after all of that walking. Even kids that normally do not need a stroller, will get tired during a long day in the heat at Disney World. It is well worth it to bring one of these strollers along.
These collapsible strollers are relatively inexpensive and easy to get on and off of the Disney World transportation. This also avoids the expensive rental fee for strollers rented at the parks.
Bring plenty of sunscreen. The Florida sun is hot. Even if you want to get a tan, bring the sunscreen. Nothing can ruin a trip faster than a case of sun poisoning or bad sun burn. Also remember to stay hydrated on those hot days. That will keep your body functioning properly and in shape for enjoying all there is to see.
Take A Break
Plan on taking a mid-afternoon break. When the parks are the most crowded and the sun is at its hottest, take a break back at the resort. Either take a nap or perhaps cool off in the resort pool. This will keep the stress levels low and make sure that you get a chance to relax. It is vacation you know.
Enjoy The Night
Return to the parks in the evening as the sun goes down. The temperature will start to drop, making it much more comfortable. Many of the attractions take on a new perspective when they are lit up at night. Also take advantage of special night time entertainment such as Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, “Illuminations” at Epcot, or “Wishes” (or the new Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular) at the Magic Kingdom.
Enjoy Your Disney World Vacation!
By following these tips you will be able to stay cool, dry, avoid the major crowds, have time to relax, and enjoy the attractions.
Now that certainly sounds like a vacation at the “Happiest Place On Earth.”
