a summer vacation at walt disney world
How to handle the crowds, cost and heat of Walt Disney World in the summer.
Excessive heat, and sporadic rain means you may be hot or drenched on any given day.
Tank tops, good shoes and packable rain jackets are a must.
Dress for the Weather
Take Pool Time at Your Resort
Your afternoon break can include pool time, or you can set aside a whole day to hang out poolside.
Mickey's PhilharMagic, MuppetVision 3-D, the Mickey Shorts Theater and Rise of the Resistance are great rides when it's hot.
Prioritize Indoor Rides
Sunscreen, Water, and Snacks are important, specially when it's busy. Pack a water bottle and high protein snacks .
Days are HOTTEST between 12-4pm in Florida. This is also when they're busiest! Head to a Resort for a break mid-day to stay out of the heat.
Limit alcoholic drinks, and find slushy drinks like The American Dream in EPCOT to help you stay cool.
Head to the Water Parks
Head to Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach for time on the lazy river, on the water slides, and an excuse to coll off and take it easy.
Take Time for New Things
Summer at Walt Disney World brings new rides, shows and more to the parks. Here is everything new this summer!
