How To Beat The Summer Heat At Disney World

As the summer temperatures reach record levels it is a good time to think about how to stay cool at the Walt Disney World Resort. 

If the best time for your family to vacation at Disney World is during the summer, then the Florida heat is something that you will have to contend with.

There are many ways to escape the heat at Disney World, whether you are looking to cool off a little or cool off a lot.  Let's look at a list of some of your options:

Disney Resort Pools - The Walt Disney World Resorts all have pools for you to enjoy and there is no better time than during the summer.  Many have slides and special splashing areas for young children.  This is a great way to break up the day and cool off a little bit before you head back into the parks.

Disney Attractions That Get You Wet! - There are many Disney World attractions that will get you wet, from just a splash to a drenching downpour.  The summer is the best time to enjoy the cooling off benefits of these attractions.  Favorite Disney Attractions that get you wet are: Kali River Rapids & Splash Mountain (note: You actually get the wettest at the beginning of theSplash Mountain as you approach the area pictured above).  Other attractions that may get you wet include:  Maelstrom, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Muppet Vision 3-D, Voyage Of The Little Mermaid, & Captain EO.

Disney Park Misters - Within each of the Disney World Theme Parks there are several misters to help cool you off as you walk by.  These are very refeshing and do a great job to beat the summmer heat.  For an in depth look at misters (with lots of photos) in each of the Disney Parks read: Disney Parks - Staying Cool In The Summer Heat.

Club Cool At Epcot - The refreshing stop should be on every Epcot park visitors list, especially during the summer.  Within this air conditioned building in Future World are a selection of FREE soft drinks to taste.  You probably can't stay hydrated by visiting here alone (although I'm sure there are those who have tried), but you can quench your thirst by trying several of the chilled carbonated beverages.

Disney World Water Parks - For the ultimate "Get Wet" experience, try one of the Walt Disney World Resort's Water Parks - Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach.  All of the Disney World theming and detail that you love in their theme parks applied to a Water Park.

Disney World's Frozen Treats - One of the best ways to stay cool is to try one (or more) of the great Disney World Frozen Treats that are available.  Favorites include: the famous Dole Whip and Dole Whip Float, Frozen Lemonade, Tropical Smoothies, Milk Shakes, Ice Cream, Ice Cream Sundaes, the American Dream in Epcot, & Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.

Florida Brief Rain Storms -  Another way to cool off is to enjoy the near daily afternoon rain showers that central Florida are known for.  Use these brief showers to cool off and refresh.  Don't get soaked and be miserable, but sometimes being a little wet feels good on a hot day.

Take Advantage Of Late Disney Park Hours - During the busy summer season it is not uncommon for the Disney Theme Parks to have extended hours.  The Magic Kingdom can be open as late as 3:00 AM if you are a Disney Resort guest.  These late hours are the coolest of the day and can help you beat the heat.  The Disney Parks also take on a different feel at night and it becomes another experience to enjoy.

Enjoy Disney World! - No matter how hot it gets there are always ways to beat the heat and have a great time at Disney World.  Use any or all of these tips and don't let the heat slow down or take away the magic from your Disney Vacation.
