Disney World Quick Tips – It is Never Too Hot to be Cool
It is summer in Florida and that can only mean two things –heat and humidity which, when combined, can make you feel like you’re melting. Lots of cool drinks, plenty of breaks, a Dole Whip or two, and a spray fan can make you feel more comfortable but don’t forget the sweater. That’s right, even on the hottest days in Florida, throw a lightweight sweater into your theme park bag, especially for the kids.
The blast of cold air when you walk into a Disney World restaurant is a welcome relief from the sweltering temperatures outside but give it twenty minutes or so. You just may be chilly after such a drastic fluctuation in air temperature from the Florida heat to the well air-conditioned restaurant.
On our toddler’s first trip, I dropped more than a few bucks in resort gift shops purchasing sweatshirts during dinner for my shivering two-year old (you would have thought I would have learned after the first time and brought it with us the rest of the trip, right?)
The lesson I learned is that it’s never too hot out to be cool.
