This tip was given to me by my sister-in-law who just got back from Walt Disney World with a 3 year old and a 1 year old…
Florida’s average summer temperature is: 92* You might say that isn’t too bad…for you. Put two tired toddlers, long lines, and rude tourists in the mix and you have the recipe for disaster. Not to mention the mugginess of a Southern State if you aren’t used to it.
California’s average summer temperature is: 90* Which again, you might say isn’t bad. But please see the above scenario. And California is often very dry in the summer months.
When its hot, its hot. And there aren’t enough shade trees, misting machines or Dole Whip to cool you down. And the heat can cause little ones to act up…heck, it can cause big ones to act up. Patience in definitely a key here…but here is something that can help!
This comes highly recommended by moms, dads, kids, and tons of people who work in the hot sun. I know construction workers and roofers that use these!
Cassie just released her article entitled: It’s Not Too Late for A Summer Trip To Disneyland: Cheap Time in August and September. In this article, she laid out some very inexpensive ways to hit the parks in the heat. She also pointed out the perks of hitting Disneyland in August and September. Such as: less traffic in the park, cheaper tickets, and better weather. She even gave a link to a GREAT travel company and a coupon code!
Here is another way to cool down in the heat of the day. They are reusable, anti-bacterial, anti-mold, and comes with a lifetime guarantee. You really can’t go to a hot park with out these things. People wear them to sporting events, by the pool, and for jogging/running also.
These are amazing towels that honestly cool you down. My sister-in-law used them and verified that they did the job just fine in the hot Florida weather.
Just check out this thermal graphic of how well this product cools this man down. Amazon has many options, but this one comes the highest recommended.
Of course, you should always drink plenty of water and wear sun screen. The last thing you want is dehydration to hit after the park and ruin your trip. Or a nasty stinging sun burn to keep you out the the rest of your activities.
Amazon also has some SUPER cute Disney water bottles too. Check these out….they are sure to make your child (or you) drink more water. There are 100’s of possibilities!
No matter the weather, Disney is amazing. I’ve walked in the rain at Disney World. I’ve ran in the wind at Disneyland. I’ve enjoyed the sunshine and heat of both. It was lovely.
I wish you a lovely and joyful time whenever you go.
