Managing the Heat in Walt Disney World

Some families have no other choice than to visit Walt Disney World in the hottest months of the year. And while it’s most humid and crowded during June, July and August, there are ways to manage the heat.
For many years my trips to Disney were in the summer. And it did give me the opportunity to figure out how to manage the crowds and the heat. I quickly realized that a lot of people take advantage of the late extra magic hours at the parks. So I would take advantage of the early mornings and open the parks each day, leave right after lunch and take a pool break then return to the parks late afternoon. On days we went to Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach we would get there when they open also. Then we would leave again after lunch when these parks were the fullest.
If you haven’t been to Disney you should know that for most of the rides, the waiting areas are covered and some even air conditioned. It’s not like waiting in ride lines at local amusement parks.
They sell spray bottles with fans and I believe they are well worth the money!
Mid-afternoon thunderstorm are the norm in Central Florida but they usually don’t last more than 10 or 20 minutes.
Another way to beat the heat is to plan to visit the countries in Epcot during the hottest part of the day. The buildings are all air conditioned and you’d be surprised at how much there is to see!
