    I'm vising disney from July 8th for 5 days and I've been told its really hot then. We decided to always make it at the parks early before opening. What time would you recommend to be there? We are staying in Kissimmee only 5 miles from Disney.

    Hi Cora!

    Yes, it can be pretty hot during July at Walt Disney World. But a good game plan is to arrive at the parks prior to the park opening. I'd recommend being at the gates at least 45-30 minutes prior to the park opening. Oftentimes the characters come out and greet guests and the Cast Members keep kids entertained as well.

    Sometimes they will push the rope back to the certain areas of the park, so you can be even closer to the attractions once the park opens. 

    I hope you have a. Magical vacation!
