    My family will be at Disney World and then on our first Disney cruise in July. Any tips for "beating the heat" in hot summer months?

    Ahoy, Sybil!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can feel your excitement about your upcoming Disney Vacation by Land and Sea through your question! You will get to experience all the excitement of Walt Disney World Resort before setting sail on a relaxing voyage with Captain Mickey! So fun!

    My family and I have vacationed multiple times to Walt Disney World Resort during the hot summer months. My first suggestion is to set up your schedule alternating between attractions, dining, parades and air conditioned shows. For example, we might book FastPass+ for the Jungle Cruise and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin but then duck into Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room and enjoy the show (and air conditioning)! Or, watch a parade down Main Street, U.S.A. and then head right to lunch! Also, stay very hydrated and bring a battery-operated fan for you and your family to use.

    Sailing the high seas during the summer months is fantastic! There are a ton of activities right within walking distance onboard to help you beat the heat! My family's favorite ways to cool off are taking a dip in one of the splashtacular pools, grabbing an all-you-can eat soft serve ice cream cone on deck or catching a movie in the Buena Vista Theatre! I also recommend bringing a large refillable mug or water bottle from home so you can keep it filled with a refreshing beverage from the 24/7 Beverage Station! Even though it will be warm during the day, the temperature gets cool in the evenings, especially at sea, so I suggest bringing a light jacket to wear!

    I'm so excited for you as you plan your upcoming land and sea vacation! Please come back and visit us again!
