Have you ever been to Walt Disney World during the summer? I have one word for you… HOT! We spent a few days at the world in July of 2012. I was 32 weeks pregnant which made it feel even 50 degrees hotter! I learned a lot on that trip though! Here are five things you may want to consider packing to help you endure the Florida summer heat!
#4. Sunscreen– Even when it’s not summer, you should wear sunscreen daily. But in the summer, when you are sweating, you need to bring the sunscreen with you into the parks so you can reapply. Sunburn + Touring the Parks= Not Fun!
#3. Washcloth– We used these during our entire trip in July. We didn’t actually pack these, we bought them in the gift shop. We would wet the washcloths in the bathrooms to wipe off our brow or wrap around our necks. These were a lifesaver! If you travel with a small cooler containing an ice pack you can store the wash clothes in there and when you pull them out they are nice and cool.
#2. Ponchos– These are needed all year in Florida, but on the hot days, it’s nice to have a poncho to keep you dry during the summer showers. After the rain, it’s more humid outside and if it’s humid and you are wet, you can feel quite miserable!
#1. Small Fan– Anytime it’s hot, a fan is nice to have. We had small keychain size fans clipped on our backpack, but you can find larger fans attached to spray bottles at many stores that will help cool you off even more! 🙂
