    Can you recommend a brand of personal fan that has cool mist for standing in long lines?

    Hi there, Susan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  With a Walt Disney World Resort planned, I know you must be nothing but excited!  And since your vacation is just a couple weeks ago, I am certain that the excitement is building even more!  Once I hit my “vacation month”, it’s pretty much all I can think about.  Vacation simply cannot arrive soon enough!  But, if your month of May is anything like mine, the days are flying by meaning your vacation will be here before you know it!

    Being from Texas, I am certainly accustomed to the heat, but boy, oh boy, theme park heat is something else!  No matter what the temperature is reading, those lines to the attractions seem to be sweltering hot!  So, you definitely have the right idea about coming prepared with a personal misting fan!  While I cannot recommend a specific brand – as I have never been clever enough to plan ahead for this, I would highly recommend searching online and just finding one with FANtastic reviews!  My go to is searching online with free two-day delivery and doing my resEARch by reading other’s reviews!  Let their reviews be the deciding factor for you based on size, battery life and preference!  And, worse case scenario, they do sell these throughout the theme parks!  But, coming prepared is the best way to go since you KNOW it will be hot!

    Make certain you have the My Disney Experience Mobile app downloaded to your smartphone prior to your visit.  Then, look up the wait times for certain attractions and plan your day around those!  And, certainly take advantage of the FastPass+ selections to bypass a portion of the wait time!

    Wishing you a breezy and magical vacation, Susan!  And welcome any afternoon rain showers that may come your way!
